Ok, so I didn't exactly watch this game closely, but it sure looked like we were running a neutral zone trap.

I saw the box score and assumed it was an April Fools joke

This was from before today's game, obviously, but still:



I guess we really don't miss Jordie and Oduya all that much.

Yes. They failed miserably to make the playoffs. And when they realized they weren't in the playoffs and needed to get the number one draft pick, they failed at that too by actually playing well. What a hot mess this season turned out to be.

There was literally no way they were ever going to tank enough to get the #1 draft pick. Colorado might be the worst team the NHL has seen since the salary cap was instituted. Arizona is really bad and would normally be a lock for the #1 pick, but they're not quite Avs bad. That's your #1-2 spots locked in since late October. And Vegas gets the #3 slot.

They could still win the lottery, or at least move up. But this was an epically crappy time to tank.

Stars are playing well against playoff teams or those teams still trying to get in. Lots of inexperienced players in the line up and they are doing well. Win.

I just hope Nill and company don't get any delusional ideas that they can run with the same nonsense next year and expect to win more than 10 games.

It's best to be patient and stay the course with our current goalies.

I didn't even think about that possibility because I can't even fathom another franchise being as dumb as ours, but maybe you're right ...

Vegas does have a cap floor to meet. A goalie that can help them achieve another high draft pick then be jettisoned may be just what they need.

An Arizona win here and an NJ loss bumps the Coyotes from #2 to #4 overall. No way Goligoski lets that happen.

This game is an amazing display of our depth at the Punt Team position. We are very nearly icing three entire Punt Team lines tonight.

All these turnovers must be in honor of Romo.

Oleksiak probably backhanded his way to another healthy scratch.

I'm not going to look this up, but it sure seems like 90% of our goals recently have been from rookies and fourth liners.

I guess the vets really have checked out.

Was there some delay? I tuned away and came back, and there is still a lot of time left.

Two minute PP. Honka doesn't play, but Eakin does. Huh.

Honka's OT shift gave me my first Stars boner of 2017. Holy *poo poo*.

Arizona played that entire game like they were protecting a 1 goal lead even when they were down Can't remember the last time I was so bored at a game.
