At least one writer has not drunk the Kool-Aid

I’m banking my Stanley Cup pick on the continuation of a post-lockout trend.

Well, that and a fantastic goalie playing on a team with a tremendous captain.

Yes sports fans, Texas is big enough for two championship teams in one year and just a few months after ’dem Cowboys are done winning the Super Bowl, the Dallas Stars are going to win the Stanley Cup.

Detroit Red Wings you say? Repeat after me; nobody repeats anymore. The whole concept is sooooo ’90s.

San Jose? When Sharks fly.



Article continues with an examination of the new leadership core of the Stars.

I truly believe Morrow will become known as the greatest captain in Stars history (Minnesota and Dallas).

That said, if Detroit doesn't repeat, I'll be shocked.

But ya never know. I still believe had we finished the Sharks off earlier than 6 games, we would've had a better shot at beating Detroit.

I'd feel better about a post-Cup hangover if Detroit wasn't so damn good. I can't find a single weakness on that team except maybe Osgood. Even if he's just average, they can outscore anyone if they need to.

Nice article, but we need some big breaks if we're going to get past the Wings.

I think more of it is who they would meet in the playoffs.

I really believe Chicago would beat them in a series. They just match up so well against them for whatever reason.

Chicago has to make the playoffs first. Don't let your Toews man-crush blind you.

Chicago will definitely make the playoffs. I worry whether or not they have enough leadership and experience to get very far.

It's still nice to see such a storied franchise pulling itself off the bottom finally.

Now if Detroit could just take their place for the time being, all would be great. :D

Speaking of Chicago, what's the over/under on the number of games Havlat will miss this year? I'm going with 65.

It's a contract year so Havlat will miss only 50 games.

Like Jason said it's a contract year so he'll play in 65 games at least.
