That's stupid. Jagr should play for a cup contender.

Mike McKenna's new Stars mask.
Although I appreciate him putting Dimebag Darrell on there, why did it have to be drawn like a retarded child?

Also why would he get a Dallas mask and not an Austin or Idaho one?

Wonder why he didn't choose Dimebag's other guitar?

2. Two others with a new attitude: Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Benn looked refreshed, and attended the highly regarded early September Andy O’Brien workout camp in Vail, CO. Dallas’s captain sounded a lot like MacKinnon. “The bigger thing for myself is keeping a positive mindset. When things get bad, the more you think about how bad it is, the worse it will probably get. Changing your mindset for the better, and really knowing that things will get better…you have to find ways of how to do that.”

As for Seguin, “It was the first year where I really took things home with me. In the past, I found a way to separate from hockey, just be a person. But I couldn’t leave it at the rink. It took the summer to get over it.” What made it worse for him was feeling great before the season, then suffering a hairline fracture at the World Cup. “Nothing was going right. Being done your season with 15 games left in the year, I’d never been through it before.”

3. No doubt many of you are familiar with the “shuttle run,” that heinous gym-class torture test. (Even the flexed-arm hang wasn’t as bad as the shuttle run.) But you know who loves it? Seguin. He was able to do it for the first time in two years, as previous injuries kept him from the activity. “I got a step back that I lost. I look forward to starting.”

Yeah. I don't know. Lindros was a whiny *goddess* off the ice. Benn isn't. Lindros would constantly throw dirty hits and play cheaply. I don't see Benn doing that at all. As far as the offense and size go. Okay, sure. But, I think Lindros was faster, even back then.

I can see the comparison. Both dive quite a bit and they take the same amount of maintenance days.

Lindros was better at hockey though.

According to the Stars' website Benn is 6' 2" and weighs 209 lbs.

Lindros is 6' 4" and played at 240 lbs.

I stand corrected. I was iffy on that one anyway. Maybe it's just the way Benn plays that makes him look bigger.

I doubt there are too many 240 pound forwards anymore. Even ones getting 4 minutes of ice time a night.

Eric Lindros is the most physically imposing human I've ever seen in person. Oleksiak is taller, but lanky. Even Hatcher just looked like a regular tall guy when not wearing his pads. But Lindros was huge.

When Lindros was at his best, he was so dominant. Shame he was hurt so often. His run ended when most great players were starting to peak.
