Dallas have been back practising in Frisco today after a relatively successful three game road trip this past week. A good solid outing which has seen us garner 5 points from a possible 6, has us in 6th place in the West with a game in hand over the San Jose Sharks - to whom [...]
Another three game road trip is due to begin tonight with our first match up against Anaheim.
There are concerns amongst the Dallas faithful around who will actually make this trip and looking at the strength down the middle we are currently limited to it’s not hard to see why.
Brad Richards (groin) and Mike Modano (ribs [...]
So after a two game home stand; what have we learned kids?
Firstly; it’s OK to win at home.
Much has been made of the 6-0 score vs the Predators and it has to be said; it was good to get such a resounding score on the board. Everything seemed to click into place against Nashville this [...]
Well there it is. Three game road trip. 4 points. If you believe my previous post; I should be happy now right? I guess I am. The results could have been a lot worse of course and the play has been entertaining…
You can tell there’s a “but” can’t you?
BUT there are two really serious causes [...]
There are few justices in professional sports these days; this has been proven on various occasions of course. The latest of these though comes from the October 3rd game at American Airlines Center and Dallas vs Nashville.

It’s hard to find any reason why Stars fans shouldn’t be optimistic this season. We have a fresh new look to the team with the front office addition of former Stars fan-favorite and Stanley Cup winner Joe Nieuwendyk who takes over the GM role from Les Jackson and Brett Hull - both of whom have [...]
From 1990-1993 the Buffalo Bills tallied up regular season records of 13-3, 13-3, 11-5 12-4, featured NFL Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Marv Levy, went to 4 straight Super Bowls – and lost every one of them.
Are the San Jose Sharks the Buffalo Bills of hockey? Are they destined [...]
The San Jose Sharks are 2-5-1 in their last 8 games, 7-7-5 in their last 19. They are now trailing the Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins by 3 points each, and the New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals are only 5 and 6 points behind respectively. There are 16 games left in the season [...]
The San Jose Sharks have lost three regulation games in a row. The horror. For Sharks’ fans it’s a time of great concern, although from the rest of the hockey world we get no sympathy. Watching the Dallas Stars game I think the Sharks, coming home after a February spent mostly on [...]
Well, I knew it would be odd watching the game last night between Anaheim and Dallas; not only with the traded players, but Bobby Ryan is now sporting #9, instead of #54. What is this team doing to me???? (Side note: Ryan wearing #9 now means that Anaheim can’t retire Paul Kariya’s sweater….guess Selanne [...]
