Dallas Stars-Mike Modano (451 words)
Mike Modano's career is nowhere near over, although Ruslan Salei might have had a different idea when he nearly decapitated Mike in the first game of the year.
One of the criticisms on Modano early in his career was that he was too soft a player, especially compared to his stature.
In a sense, Mike Modano is a true first line center, which truly means something in a diluted league where teams sometimes expect more than they should.
Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Modano (732 words)
Modano proved he was ready for the NHL when he totalled 75 points as a rookie in 1989-90 and was runner-up to Calgary Flames forward Sergei Makarov in Calder Trophy voting, but Modano did receive a small consolation in the form of selection to the NHL's All-Rookie Team.
Modano continued to be a consistent scorer for the Stars through the remainder of the decade.
Modano's excellence and flair on the ice was a key selling point as the club tried to develop a solid fan base once the novelty of ice hockey dissipated.
