He brought it on himself. He was a petulant child his last few seasons as a Star where he whined about the team signing Avery and later admitted to putting in no real effort near the end. He then retired and acted like a child at various times, whether it was being unhappy with how quickly the team was promoting Jamie Benn as his replacement or how he got upset the team didn't want to send him a paycheck while he played golf in Arizona.
Oh *poo poo*. I forgot about the Benn thing. Didn't he tweet "zzzzzzz...." out about one of Benn's highlight-reel goals or something?
Modano has been pretty much a douche for the last decade or so. It wasn't just him, though. The entire core group was douchey during that era. Morrow, Ribeiro, Ott, Turdco et al. I kind of felt sorry for Avery personally. They never gave him a chance.
And I wish I could find a pic. But, Modano always moved away from Avery on the bench. He would make it a point to move several feet away from him every time Avery sat down next to him. It was pretty off-putting to watch.
