Everything updated. Go Stars Go.
(But Fading Quickly)
Still Hating Sydor!
Go Stars Go!
A loss tonight would basically end the Stars' season. Their odds would drop down to around 30% of making the playoffs. A win however would keep them around a 50/50 chance. Huge potential swing.
**** you Robidas....Just getting it out of the way now!
Just win...and don't blow it!!!
go Stars and don't **** it up with a few minutes to go again
That's all that matters.
Well this is encouraging..
2006, 3-2 L in OT after leading 2-0: Stars win next 6 in a row.
2006, 6-5 L after leading 5-2: Stars go 11-3-0 in next 14.
2007, 6-5 L in OT after leading 4-0: Stars go 6-0-1 in their next 7.
Morrison with the hatty, you heard it here first.
I know Les Jackson said they want to use Morrison as a center, but I'd rather Sutherby continue in the role, and let Morrison see if he would work on Modano's wing.
More than anything though, Parrish needs to be back on the 4th line, but I'd prefer the press box.
The box score from last night is an embarrassment. Go look at ice time for players, especially on the powerplay and explain to me Tippet's thinking. Parrish needs to be cut again and if Tippet persists in playing him he needs to go ASAP too.
Ugh, just awful. Oh and those who defend Turco explain to me what 55 minutes of effort is sufficient for a guy making his salary with an NTC. By the day his contract is looking more and more like one of the worst in this league. He hasn't gotten to the level of the NY troika but he's creeping up my personal list.
If the Stars ever tried to move Turco's contract I think we'd find out just how bad it really is...
Yeah, here's Brunnstrom floating around the perimeter like usual.
Makes it easier to get back to the bench.
Turco makes way too much money for the quality of play he has given the Stars this season. He makes 5.7 million dollars. His 2.80 GAA and .898 save percentage rank 27th and 36th respectively out of 43 goalies with at least 20 games played.
Between the contract and the NTC his debt to value ration is atrocious. Can he steal games? Yes, but for every game he steals it seems that he gives ones away too. What's that other lovely statistic? 10 goals on the first shot this season. That's 17% of the time this season the other team has scored on their first shot. None of these numbers scream winner, good value, or leader.
But heck they're just numbers right. Stats don't matter, Turco's subpar play this season was because of Avery, then injuries and now well he's tired. Everything will be magically better next season when it matters. His contract year. He's not worth the money now and certainly won't be worth the money he demands then.
This is the first bad season of his career, stop freaking out and acting like we should dump him at the drop of a dime. You wanna talk about numbers, try looking at Turco's goaltending stats over the last 5 years. But what does that prove, they're just numbers; consistency doesn't mean anything.
Seems to be a popular thought when dealing with Turco.
Turco's entering the age of goalies who's numbers don't get better. His best years are behind him. His athletic form won't improve with age. He's not 25, 28 or even 31 anymore. What upside is there for a guy who's going to turn 34 before the start of next season? He relies on his athletic skills to make plays because he's not a very technical goal keeper. Age catches up to all of us. Maybe he's still got three to five years. I don't know, but my best guess is probably not. I don't believe there's a way in the world he gets moved this off season. I do question as should everyone whether he should be retained beyond the length of his current contract.
What baring do stats three years ago have on him now? If he were 28 going into his prime they'd be relevant. 33 soon to be 34, questions about the quality of his play lately seem a little more important.
