The Stars also got the NETTING OFF THE GOAL as requested. I personally witnessed that.

IF Modano hadn't swung his stick at Tootoo's back or if he had received a slashing penalty and NOT gotten #503 on that subsequent power play - then maybe the Nashville fans would have been a little more forgiving and applauded him as the Stars organization and fans think we should have.

However after the incident and taking the Dallas player off the ice on a gurney, it would NOT have been appropriate to stop the game to honor Modano.

I use to like Modano until his contraction comments along with not being able to buy his dog any food during the lock out. I will cheer him no more. He has now reached the same level as Chelios in my mind.
