Congrats to the Big Mo

Hats off to Mike Modano, one of the classiest players to grace the game in this era, for taking the all-time American points lead.

He is a player that has lifted us out of our seats on so many occasions and he has been such a treat to watch over the years.

He brings energy and excitement whenever he touches the puck and has been a model of consistency.

He has continued to lead in the absence of his captaincy, which speaks volumes. We in Canada would readily adopt you...anytime.

Thanks for the memories and keep going Mike.

Randy Millar, Port Robinson, Ont.
