Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jean-Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News,
Mike Modano should wear the hated Detroit Red Wings’ red sweater this season as long as he’s playing because he can’t imagine life without hockey – not because his ego needs some TLC.
It’s easy to see why Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk made the difficult, but correct, decision to inform Modano that he’d played his last season for the Stars.
Like most superstars, especially those who spend the bulk of their career with one team, Modano feels a certain sense of entitlement.
Talk to enough people within the organization and they’ll tell you that Modano, while still likeable, had become a curmudgeon the last couple of seasons.
