Dallas Stars president Jim Lites has ripped the entire Nashville Predators organization for the 'horrible thing' they did by not acknowledging the Stars' Mike Modano tying and then breaking the record for goals scored by an American-born player Saturday, according to a published report.Aside from Lites' ridiculous over-the-top mock outrage (Failed the game? Horrible?) and hyperbole (Atlanta, a Southern city, last I checked, had an NHL team when Modano was two-years-old), there's this little tidbit:
"Their owner, management, public relations people, coaching staff -- I think they all failed the game," Lites told the Dallas Morning News. "It's because of people like Mike Modano that they even have a team in Nashville. He has helped pioneer the game in the South, and for him to be treated like that in a milestone moment ... it's just a horrible thing."
At the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, Dallas Stars forward Mike Modano said he thought that Nashville and Carolina should be contracted.Oops!
So, Mr. Lites, please forgive the Predators owner, management, public relations people and coaching staff for not stopping the game to fete a guy who, if he had his druthers, would see them all out of jobs.
