Anybody watching Modano's last game in Dallas? He is in on both goals in the game including tying the game with a minute and a half to go and now in the shootout scores a wicked wrister. Credit where credit is due. An American classic there. I hope he comes back for one more so he can at least finish his last season in the postseason. They gave him a three minute ovation with 5 minutes to go in the period and the Stars win it. Will go down in history if it is his last game.

Yeah, that was hard to watch him shedding tears on the bench. I think he knew it was time, just hard for a man to accept. Always liked #9.

So many hockey fans (myself included) automatically associate the Stars organization with Modano. It would suit them well to retire his number as soon as they possibly can.

Great show of respect to let the fans do their thing, too.

A sure-fire HOF entry, one of the greatest American players ever, and a classy guy to boot. His public criticism of the Stars a couple of years ago when the had Ott & Avery gooning it up was one of the most honourable and courageous statements I've heard from a hockey player.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

What a great player.

I remember when the big knock on him around the mid-nineties was his lack of defensive play. He started to clean that up around 97 or 98 and he got a lot of credit for it.

I also remember when he was in The Mighty Ducks. "Actually I heard you were a farmer." :huh: WTF?

I was a little choked up watching him get choked up. I've always liked him, one of my favorite non-wings players throughout the years. I remember as a kid playing NHL games in the mid-90's, I'd always trade Modano to the Wings.
