At the very least, we need to win 3 more games.

That way if Vegas wins it all I can say the Stars were like one game away from a Cup and keep annoying slaps.
I enjoyed the one offseason where the Stars kept trying to sell fans they were a miss Benn wraparound from winning the Cup.
I was trying to sell that too.

Because it was really pissing some people off and was hilarious .

The missed wraparound clip should be kept and shown during the Benn jersey retirement ceremony. With the Stone cross-check of course.

(I was quietly cleaning my stick when the cross-check suddenly landed on Stone's neck all by itself)

I mean I guess if you're cool with players going around all wily nilly putting their heads under other player's landing points. Fine.

That's not the league I want personally.

Benn suspended 2 games...doesn't matter because he would've taken those as maintenance days anyways.

Good, he deserves to sit for that.

Also, if the get eliminated next game, does he serve the remaining game at the beginning of next season?

2 playoff games is the equivalent of like 20 in the regular season. He deserves it.

The Stars are toast regardless.

It's too bad he didn't skate in from the side and two hand slash Stone.

That's only half as many games.

Yeah we don't need a second line. We were dominating Vegas anyway.

Yes, one game at the beginning of the season.

DeBoer said Oettinger will start again.
Dadonov is out.

I say play Lundkvist. Who gives a *poo poo*. It's not like the guys playing D are doing well. Give him a game for the experience. There's no downside.

Good business decision by Dadanov. Why risk getting trucked in a meaningless game when you’re a UFA.

Agree. Hell, get Stanks down here and put him on a line with Wyatt. Lets just go wild ass in the last game.

I would treat it like a preseason game and scratch all non-prospects. Send a message.

Benn should come back with a minute remaining in Game 5 and score the game winner just as a big *f-bomb* You to the NHL.

Or if he's retired, a player who scored around 30 goals that year takes his place.

Dallas should win the next four games because it's the last thing anyone expects them to do.

He probably will be by that time anyway as "ambassador of fun."

I like how Benn called his crosscheck to the jaw an "unfortunate" play. No accountability at all. It's not unfortunate. It was a moronic decision that made a difficult series impossible to win now for his team. Really unbelievable to me his nonchalant attitude about it.

I don't think he actually has a nonchalant attitude about it. I think he's probably pretty eaten up by the mistake. I just think his brain is still old school in terms of communications and keeping things in the room and he obviously has never been a very good communicator with the media.

Yeah, while I'd like to see some different bodies, those who haven't been playing are probably not ready to play at this level. Maybe go with 7 D and add Lundqvist.

I also look at it and see the team desperately needs offense and speed against this Vegas team. Johnston will be without both of his wingers, and if all you do is plug Dellandrea and Glendening on that line, you're dragging it down to be your second fourth line.

This isn't to say a kid like Bourque is guaranteed to get a point, but he has tools those other fill ins don't for the possibility of adding offense.
