11/18 - Stars vs Islanders vs the Cowboys

Postby Troy McClure » Sun Nov 18, 2018 12:40 pm

What idiot allowed the Stars to play head to head against the Cowboys?

Monty spent two game stalking up Ritchie and giving him prime playing time, and today, he scratches Ritchie in favor of a 7th d-man. Was it Monty trying to pump up Ritchie’s confidence hoping to get something out of him?

When’s the last time we were on the right side of a goalie meltdown? Is this how it has felt for other teams playing against us the last four years?

Two more secondary assists in the bank for Jamie.

Honka has more or less been benched. He has six minutes of ice time. When you can't get minutes on a D corp featuring Polak, Bayreuther, Hanley, and Gleason, you've got a big bag of nothing.

Good to see Kari getting work as the Isles' goalie coach.

Lots of confirmation of my bias today:
- Ritchie scratched in favor of a bunch of AHL d-men
- Honka overtaken by a bunch of AHL d-men
- Stars score six, and Nichushkin can't even find a secondary assist

So they need to trade Honka for a bag of pucks. Or a nice "change of scenery" swap for a winger that has been struggling with their team but might rebound nicely for the Stars. I'd be thrilled if Nichuskin or Comeau were involved in the trade as well.

I love that Hintz' first goal came on Spezza's 900th point.

Prediction: Val’s first goal will come on Hintz’s 900th point

Funny to imagine the Stars hanging onto Val for 12 seasons because of how well he played as an 18 year old.

I mean, he was close to scoring a few games ago, so you gotta hang on to him. After all, close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and Nichushkin.
