Cool WTF is wrong with the Stars this year

They got hammered by the Blues 6-1 and they can't win a faceoff or kill a penalty to save their lives. Any input? I love the Stars and hate to see them play this way.

They suck?

There is not enough chemistry on all of the lines. Not enough hustle from the veterans, hardly and forecheck, or backcheck, the list goes on. Oh, and Turco is in net too.

Did you not watch the start of the season last year? Their record might not show it, but their lack of chemistry and Turco's lack of consistency was about the same as this time last year.

Of course, I can't really say that they will have the same success this year.

It is simple. They are a team full of the same kind of players and count on system play to win games. The only problem with that is when the system is not executed properly you don't win. As far as saying they don't forecheck or backcheck, that really isn't the issue. Look for the Stars in the near future to be in a rebuilding mode. Turco as well isn't the problem, he is easily in the top 5 in the league.

Sort of sucks to see all that talent and nothing but disappointment. Offensively they are scoring, but lets face it Turco IS looking a bit sloppy. Also, I don't feel our defense is doing what it should.

Ah well, I'll watch every game if I can. Win or lose. Rather they be wins though. Guess if we suck too much I'll just record them and watch them on my schedule as opposed to "live."

You all also have to realize that they have 2 key players out, Lehtinen, and Zubby. Zubby out definitely puts a dent in the D.

Very true, thought of that after I posted that. Both are great all around players as well.
