Dallas Stars...

Anyone watch the opening two games? With the twins we don't have much time but man am I glad I watched.

The game against NJ was superb. Last night's game against NY was great and we even had some call against us. I tihnk with our old goal tending and playing we would've lost last night before OT.

So far this year, the team seems to have promise.

Ended up watching the 3rd period of last night's game. I don't know about giving up 7 goals in 2 games, but as long as we're scoring, I'll take it.

Sad to say, but they're starting off better than my Pens are. Hope the Stars turn things around this season.

hehe, he needs a tear drop or something.

Anyway, he's starting off like he seemed 2-3 years ago. Seems to have some motivation.

They look like a team with some chemistry. Hope they can hold on to it.

Sturm Blog: Thursday Night Is Here
Wednesday, 10.13.2010 / 11:17 PM / Bob Sturm Blog
By Bob Sturm

Bob Sturm
The night we hoped would never come will finally be here. It is almost as if the league office had a smirk when this one came out.

Of all the years to open with the Red Wings in the Dallas barn, they choose the year in which the most hallowed name in Stars' history is wearing the unthinkable Red Wing on his chest.

Wow. Of all of the tough things to stomach.

Now, I could offer you my take on the situation (this is for the best for all parties involved) but the beauty of this Mike Modano issue is that like politics, religion, and a few other touchy topics, you have already made up your mind. If you wish Mike was playing in a Stars sweater right now, then you did not arrive there lightly - you are not about to let me change your mind - and I can appreciate your viewpoint.

But, he will likely be rejuvenated with a veteran team that is ready to win right now. I think this is best for Mike Modano to dig a little deeper in a new situation for a short time. The Stars may be better than we think they are, but they are starting a project that will take some time, and when you are Mike's age, you don't have time to start back at the bottom.

I love the guy. I want his "9" to be in the rafters as soon as possible. I want him back in the organization. But, I also want GM Joe Nieuwendyk to build this team in the way he see's fit. If that means more youthful energy and less of the old guard who were set in their ways, then I don't want to complicate his job. He has limited funds and 20 spots every night. I cannot ask him to build this team as quick as possible and then say you have to do it under certain conditions for guys from the last era. Even THE guy.


Let's just leave it at this: He is and will be the face of the Stars' franchise for a long, long time. But, Father time doesn't wait for any man. Roger Staubach and Nolan Ryan came to the end at one point no matter how immortal we hoped they were. I wish it was always 1999, but it is now 11 seasons later. It was awesome. But, it ended. Some ended their runs in 2000. Some a few years later. And then there is Mike, still skating in 2010-11.

I wish it didn't have to be this way. And, maybe it didn't. But, remember - Dallas Stars Hockey is about the crest on the front of the jersey. Not the nameplate on the back. We have our favorites, but the only agenda that should really consume us is how this organization can get back to being feared across the league. With that being the case, I need all priorities directed to that end.

There will never be another Mike Modano. And regardless of what shirt he wears Thursday, I think we all know where he will always belong. Those guys are borrowing him for a drop in the bucket. Sometimes, sports can really get complicated.

But, like I said, I think this is how it had to be.

I could only watch through the 2nd, the end of it but man I was smiling.

IMO, they've defeated 3 teams that are not all chump teams. I gave a shit about Modano. Was it me or did we not hear about him much during the game?

I was at the Stars/wings game and Mike got a big standing ovation as he should have... But it was great seeing them get raped!

I was out of town and could not find it streaming for free online. Who watched the game last night and did we play poorly or did TB earn the win?

I was reduced to text updates. The highlights seem like we did okay, just got out played, too many penalties and crappy penalty kills. That about right?

They killed us on the powerplay... Our penalty kill has looked pretty solid until this one!

I agree, just got caught up personally in hoping they'd have some kind of record breaking start.

Although, after the Detroit game I was pretty happy. If they play like they've proven they can play - we'll be good this year.

They've been off to a nice start but the blue line is still shaky and will only get worse as the season goes on. Kari has given up a lot of goals and that's not a good sign.

Maybe they need to make a trade with Ottawa to try to beef up the defence.
