I've heard this dog reference before but must have missed the actual story when it happened. Recap anyone?

I fail to recall the exact details, but the last time there was threat of a lockout/strike, he made a comment, publicly, about not being able to feed his dogs if he didn't get paid. It stuck because, you know, he was already a multi-millionaire at the time.

Modano was an amazing player to watch, especially seeing his jersey flapping in the breeze. I never understood why it was just Modano's jersey that did that though. He is the greatest American player of all time. I hear he will be working as a broadcaster this season, so we might get to still see him.

I'm thinking back now and I believe that not affording to feed his dogs was the result of players having to pay for their own transportation. Was something related to that.
