Mike Modano is the only man I've ever met who can be vehement without ever raising his voice. And his words after Saturday's debacle in Boston spoke volumes. He was mostly angry at the way the Stars conducted themselves with all the penalties, as well as the yapping at officials and fans (Morrow, Ott, Avery were each guilty of one or the other):
"It's idiotic, it's stupid. It's one of the most embarrassing things I've seen, on the ice and involved with the fans. In 20 years I've never seen anything like that. If that's what we're going for here, then I need to find me an office job."
On the Stars letting frustrations take over: "There's no mental toughness. We're letting everything get to us. We're letting refs get involved in the game with us. We're taking our energy out on them instead of the details of winning the game. It's been a real bad part of our game as a team."
On the goaltending: "They're doing as best you can ask from them (Marty Turco and Tobias Stephan), but the quality of the chances are doorstep goals. You can have two goalies in there, they're still going to go in."
OK, kids, now your thoughts.
