Modano and Hatcher Signed?

Two rumors that seem to be confirmed this morning are coming out of the Canadian press (as usual, the American press coverage of hockey is so awful). Sportsnet is reporting that the Flyers have signed Derian Hatcher, Mike Rathje and Chris Therien. Then RDS is reporting (but I'm linking to TSN because I cannot read French) that Mike Modano will probably sign with the Boston Bruins this afternoon. I'll post more details if/when the teams announce these signings and when financial terms are released.

Update: 10:38PM - It seemed the Modano to Boston deal was dead and that everyone in the Dallas front office was celebrating Mike's return. But now I am hearing that everything has gone quiet in Dallas, and it could be because Boston has raised their offer. This is all rumor still. Stay tuned.
