'Disappointed' Modano leaning toward returning with another team

Mike Modano says he's "disappointed and upset" that the Dallas Stars won't offer him a contract and he's leaning toward returning next season with another team.
The face of a franchise that proved hockey could thrive in the
South said Tuesday he thought all along the Stars weren't planning
to bring him back for a 21st season. But he said he held out hope
the team would decide otherwise.
Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk, Modano's
teammate-turned-boss, ended those hopes two days before NHL free
agency opens. Now Modano will shop around.
Nieuwendyk says the team needs to clear the way for younger
players after Dallas missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons for
the first time since moving from Minnesota in 1993.
