Dallas Stars: ‘Modano Must Play Goal’

I’m pretty interested in the Dallas Stars this year, mostly because I’m a big Eric Lindros fan. Mike Heika has an interesting email newsletter column talking about how Brenden Morrow became the new team captain, replacing Mike Modano. Heika says the move was a way of letting the team know they need to dominate this season. Which is understandable, but it kind of sucks for Modano that he lost his job in part because his goalie hasn’t been horribly sharp in the post-season. Terry Frei speculates Lindros might thrive in Dallas with lower expectations and less pressure. I wonder if that’s why a lot of high draft picks decide to play where they’re drafted.
