The good news is, if we need a different backup, there's likely to be a Cup-winning goalie available on waivers from Montreal soon.

The Stars also announced that Kari's wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy, so my guess is a short term paternity thing.

Stars are 10-1-1 when they allow 3 goals or less. 9 of those 12 games the Stars allowed 2 or less goals.
Stars are 1-8 when they allow 4 goals or more. Only win was against the Coyotes.

I'd be surprised if there were any teams with a decent record while allowing 4+ goals other than the 1980s Oilers.

Yeah, it's not a very eye opening stat. Maybe the better way to look at it is they've already had nine games where they've given up 4+ goals.

What's our record when allowing 5+ goals? Maybe that's the sweet spot.

Looks like Hitch is playing his Finn on Jere night.

The Athletic decided to grade the 2015 draft class, and the Stars got a C. Only three teams graded worse. Ugh.

The Stars have had generally shitty drafting for years.

That will be an F by next year or the year after. We only have one NHL game to show for that draft, and that was an end of season garbage game for Gurianov last year. More than half of the first rounders from that draft are regular NHLers by now.

The real kicker is the kid Barzal who I think has been mentioned here before by one of you. Picked four spots after Gurianov and is currently outscoring Benn in the NHL.

Remember when the Stars has a dangerous Powerplay? Well now they sure don't. In November they rank 24th in the NHL at 14.3% and the last two weeks they rank 29th at 4.8%.

My new hot sports opinion geared towards Game of Thones fans: Oleksiak is basically Reek. He actually looks like him and has the same hesitation as Reek did on the boat when his sister was captured.
