STARS

Mike Modano, maligned for blasting USA Hockey after a disappointing finish at the Turin Games, has at least one supporter in Olympic and Dallas Stars teammate Bill Guerin. Modano was widely criticized for speaking out after the United States lost to Finland and finished 1-4-1 in the Olympics. He said USA Hockey failed to take care of travel and accreditation needs of players' families, suggesting that the administration could use some "new blood." "He stuck his neck out there and said something uncomfortable for him to say and definitely uncomfortable for people to hear," Guerin said. "In the end, Mike spoke the truth. We had to deal with a lot of other issues along with worrying about the game." Modano apologized last week for the tone and timing of his comments, but the Stars captain didn't take back any of what he said when he returned to his team.
