Maybe because I didn't follow the Stars as much back then but I always got the feeling that it was Modano who was the leader of that team.
I guess now that I think of it, Modano was the media darling and the biggest fan favorite in Dallas who did assume a leadership role as time passed, especially when he started to sacrifice his own offense and bought into the two-way game under Hitchcock but I also heard that Modano was a bit of a diva at times.
Can someone quantify this notion?
That being said, I think the Stars didn't have one true leader but a group leadership comprised of Nieuwendyk, Modano, Belfour, Zubov, Hatcher, heck even Carbonneau and Hull contributed to this.
