Still need to sign Cecconi but only if you swap the "e" and the "i".

The Stars are obsessed with giving 2 to defensemen.

That way they can just change the name plate and don't have to change the number on all the Oleksiak inventory they have.

Little baby Faksa in the world now. Only 11 more years until that kid will be forced to move away and live in an apartment like his dad to be able to play high enough level hockey to eventually be an NHL draft pick.

Well, while selecting Radek Faksa in the first round remains debatable, Mrs. Matusinska is definitely a first round pick.

This may be the first evidence that Faksa can score

That's assuming he's actually the father. I'm skeptical.

Four more drinks and I'm eventually considering buying this *poo poo*.

At some place, the Stars have the perfect team to tank so they can deal Pavelski, Radulov and Klingberg before the trade deadline. I mean, as we will lose Pavelski and Radulov anyway, at least lose them for something...

Of the olds, I'm most concerned with Radulov. Any word on his rehab? Wasn't it a core issue? Those are not easy to overcome.

EDM is currently running with Smith and Koskinen again LOL.
Hopefully it happens, Pittsburgh is another team who might want a goalie.

Guess I hadn't noticed the team was using a darker green in other settings.

I’m impressed there’s any sentiment or brand recognition of the Stars at all

How on earth are the Stars more hated than the Patriots and Cowboys? That list has zero credibility.

Unless it's polling how fans feel about their team, maybe?

This both confuses and delights me. I’m confused about how anyone could find anything negative to say about the Stars and delights me at the same time that they could find anyone to say anything at all about the Stars.

I find it unsurprising. The Stars have been mediocre at best (save for like two seasons) for what, 15 years? Maybe since 2003?

They had a brief year or two here and there. 08 and 16. But, they've either been mediocre or worse for two decades.

I'm bored. Not subbing to NHL.tv for the first time in like 8 years. I'll just check the highlights for free on YouTube this year.

If Nill and his cabal are cleaned out, I'll start paying real attention again.

Just wait until Klingberg walk away as a UFA because of Suter's contract and you will be back in business :twisted:
