Honka is sick, so for tonight's game, the role of defense will be played by the Texas Stars.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Honka shouldn't have licked Pitlick's pits in Pitt.

Of course Crosby returns from injury tonight against the Stars. Couldn't sit out the game to get the extra rest with Thanksgiving. Of course not ....

He's got stats to pad and an AHL defense to play.

I didn't think Radulov deserved a penalty, every small thing effects the Stars so much. Well Khodobin sucks tonight

Don’t worry guys I’m sure the pending Brett Ritchie hat trick will get us back in this game.

Nichuskin has a pending hat trick as well. Oh, nevermind you have to shoot the Puck to get a hat trick. This team tries to be to pretty some times. They need to learn how to score dirty goals.

I’m upset with the ending of the game and what happens after. Once you beat everything, you keep a few things like your wardrobe, but you more or less have to start from scratch again.

I know Crosby is one of the best ever and all, but it’s shocking to see him on the same ice as our super stars. He’s just so much better than Benn or Seguin.

Longevity at that high of a level for Crosby is impressive too. Spezza is only a few years older than Crosby.

When does Nill start the “We don’t need to make changes, Hanzal is coming back” sales pitch.

This shouldn't be a shock, but Hanley is starting to look more and more like an AHL defenseman.

That's why I'd trade Benn for a more playmaking style top line player. Neither Benn nor Seguin can own ice in the offensive zone or stick handle through people. Radulov can I guess, which is why they only really score when he's on the line.

Also, someone somewhere would mention "beast mode" Benn, which is something that happens so rare it shouldn't really be a thing at all. He's far from the player that could dictate a game.

He used to do so with his physical play, but that’s been gone for a couple of seasons now.

It seems to me the hip surgeries are what killed that part of his game. Again, that's why I'd trade him now. His value will only plummet the farther he gets from those seasons. He's on pace for 63 points this year, which continues the downward trend from when he won the Art Ross in that fluke year.

Stars have scored 1 or fewer goals in 5 of the last 8 games. Holy *f-bomb* this team sucks at offense.

For the record, I wanted to trade Benn like 5 years ago.

On the season, it’s 9 of their 22 games.

*fargin'* pathetic.

*fargin'* Ritchie and Nichushkin need to be put on waivers. *fargin'* Hintz has already shown more than either of those offensive black holes and he has barely played.
