Today was Stars Day on TSN. They’re doing a cool little series covering all 30 teams in 30 days, and today they reviewed the Stars. I’m always somewhat disappointed in these because I expect some sort of groundbreaking observation, and that rarely happens.
First off, it was nice to see that great picture of Brenden and Marty at the Rangers game on TSN’s homepage. I actually did a doubletake because I wasn’t sure why the Stars would be on the first page.
It’s nice to see them finally getting some recognition as being a top team in the West again. Although I remember often being left out of those “best in the West” conversations in the late 1990s so go figure. They mention that the Stars are right at the salary cap. That’s okay, unless the team we have doesn’t mesh too well together. Then it’d be an issue trying to get someone else, especially since Sean Avery has a no-trade clause.
I still don’t like signing Sean Avery. I wish we would have kept Hagman. He costs less money, and he will score more goals. Plus, he’s not an idiot!
And with Hagman, I am SO tired of Hulljack, Heika, etc saying that Hagman’s season last year was just a fluke and that he’ll never score that many goals again. I really hope he scores more goals this year than he did last year… then all the people in Dallas who wanted to let him go can regret it and wonder why the hell they signed Avery. I realize that’s spiteful, but I miss my favorite Finn!
