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.

Yeah, same thing for the Ducks too. Only one of these teams (or neither) is making the playoffs it seems.

Morrison with the hatty, you heard it here first.

It's only one game, but I don't think he earned the right to center Neal and Brunnstrom. Sutherby has been very good lately, especially last night.

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.

that is crazy sure Turco has a bad contract but it is no where near one of the worst in league. There is no way it approaches any one of those bad contacts in NYR or NYI. It isn't even as bad as the Avery contract. Saying it is one of the worst is just ignorant.

If the Stars ever tried to move Turco's contract I think we'd find out just how bad it really is...

Hull Fan continues to hate on Tippett and Turco. We all know it yet she continues to bang on that drum. Get used to it.

You know why he plays Parrish on the PP? Because he is one of the few guys who will go to the net and actually try and tip the puck past the goalie. You should watch the games a little closer next time. Ott and him are the only two who stand there and distract the goalie.

Yeah, here's Brunnstrom floating around the perimeter like usual.

Makes it easier to get back to the bench.

Don't you know it's against the rules to use evidence to prove your point .....

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.

With posts like this, you're coming so close to making a point but falling so far short because you only see what you wish to see. Yes his stats are terrible, he is giving up soft goals, and he is just plain sucking this season; you are correct about that. However, you seem to forget EVERY OTHER SEASON HE HAS PLAYED!!

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.

"But what have you done for me lately?"

Seems to be a popular thought when dealing with Turco.

As is the case in most sports now a days.

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.
