Boucher back Thursday, Grossman resting a hip injury

The defense carousel seems to be in full force already this season.

(Boucher) started skating Monday in Frisco and said he should return to practices when the team gets back Thursday from its Colorado getaway. That will give him almost two weeks before the season opener Oct. 10 to get into game shape.

...

Tuesday: The Stars held a two-hour practice in Colorado Springs in order to get some details into their game. Mike Modano moved back to center on a line with Sean Avery and Jere Lehtinen. Fabian Brunnstrom looks like he'll get another preseason game on a line with Mike Ribeiro and Brenden Morrow.

Today: The Stars will travel to Denver to play a preseason game against the Avalanche. Matt Climie and Tobias Stephan are expected to split time in goal. Nicklas Grossman (hip) is expected to sit out.

Why the hell do you move Lehtinen off the first line? I know Tippett thinks in terms of "pairs" with his lines, but that's the one line I wouldn't mes with.
you don't realize that your pants are too long until you walk to get a taco in the rain.

It's simple less minutes in the regular season for Lehtinen means he'll have more left come playoff time and second better chance at staying healthy.
