I became a big time follower of the Stars after that playoff run in 07-8 and I have a question:

Why did we get rid of Tippet? And then why did we get rid of Crawford in favor of Gulutzan? Not trying to stir up any Gully hate, just generally curious

Tippet didn't survive the raised expectations of that playoff run plus the Avery disaster. Crawford won a Stanley Cup in Colorado, so he was hired to return the team to the playoffs. When he failed to do that, out he went.

Tippett, was basically forced into using younger players. Really favored all the older guys. A lot of people on here were completely fine with firing Tip. It's not like there weren't a lot of issues during the 07/08 season, and needless to say...the playoff performances prior to the 08 run were beyond horrible. That last year of Tip, I still fully believe we would've made the post season if not for how bad Turco was. He was absolutely awful that entire year.

Crawford was awful. Never will understand it. He won a Cup sure, but who wouldn't with that line up he had. Had done nothing since (and still hasn't). Was no where near the confrontational coach he was back in his earlier days either. He got fired because his teams had epic collapses in both of his years. Will never forget that awful game in Minnesota to end the season, or any of those horrid Anaheim collapses that we just seemed to love to have his last year.

BigG44 02-08-2013 10:05 AM

I thought I'd wait until after the game, but not much is going to change based on this one game. Anaheim is playing great tonight so win or lose, as long as Dallas gives a good effort this could be a successful game.

Dallas finally did what you'd expect them to do, and they beat 2 opponents that are struggling with injuries this week. By taking advantage of the situation, and actually playing solid hockey, they have pulled their season numbers back to being respectable. For me the high of the season so far was Jagr's 1st game as a Star, and the low, and it was an ugly, ugly low, was that piss poor, pathetic effort against Columbus.

Tonight's game will put 1/4 of the season behind Dallas, and right now they sit 18th in the league (9th in the West) based on win percentage. The have the 2nd fewest shots per game and the 3rd highest shots against.

The Dallas Stars are no better or worse than I expected this year. The negative are obvious, and we've all debated them.

There are at least some positives. Dallas is 2-1-1 at home, and they're actually close to respectable (3-4) on the road. After this 3 game road trip starting on next Tuesday, Dallas goes on a run of 14 home games in the next 20 all the way to the trade deadline. They'll need to build up a substantial cushion in this part of the season (roughly 50% of the schedule) to have a solid chance at the playoffs.

Despite my doubts they an do it, all I really want to see is Dallas playoff hockey. I don't want to invest in the belief they can get it done when the problems of the past 4 years continue to plague them today. Actually believing they can get it done only to be crushed with another 9-10 finish would be unbearable. I'm hopeful but not exactly optimistic, and I still think the quality of trade assets Dallas has may be too good to pass up. It'll be interesting to see how this thing plays out.

txomisc 02-08-2013 10:47 AM

so with the practice lines does that mean we can expect oleksiak or larsen to be scratched tonight?

That's a fair bet. Ugh.

Larsen had 3 SOG in his game back against Edmonton. I'd hate to see Oleksiak scratched though, he needs to play.

Blah.

piqued 02-08-2013 10:49 AM

Things will really get interesting if Oleksiak starts getting scratched.

BigG44 02-08-2013 10:49 AM

Yeah I'm thinking Larsen is out. Like Reilly Smith, Joe isn't going to allow Oleksiak scratches. He'll just ship him back to Austin.

I agree, its probably Larsen. I thought he played well enough to earn himself some more games but it appears he did not. He sure as hell outplayed Robidas, but then everyone pretty much does on a nightly basis.

Robidas gets a free pass from everyone in the organization. He'll never be scratched, regardless of he gets outplayed.

Its really frustrating to watch guys face consequences for bad play, taking penalties or whining at the officials and then see Robidas do all 3 game in game out and continue to get treated as if he is the heart of the team.

Larsen was easily the Stars' best D-man, so yeah, that probably means he'll be scratched.

He's got to learn more by watching.

Whats most curios about Larsen is that he good at things that the casual viewers may not notice but you would assume the coaching staff looks for and yet the coaching staff doesn't seem to be impressed in the least.
