Lites said the new people are going to look to anything that will enhance relations with ticket buyers, with the media, and with general fans. He said that in addition to changes behind the scenes that might be more subtle, the new team also will look at changes in event presentation, in uniforms, and in marketing.

Please new uniforms. Loved the original ones they played in even if it used the forest green.

Maybe that means Heika won't be a terrible source of Stars' info?

Nothing we didn't already know. It's still going to take another year on that front.

Hopefully the goal song will get canned along with the "..time for a Dallas Stars Powerplay!!!!11!" nonsense.

Like pretty much all other teams, they're not going to show the public anything until they're unveiled late next summer.

Which is silly. I'm not saying fans should vote or anything, but a "first look" is a good idea to see if you're on the right track. The Islanders could have avoided a lot of heartbreak...

What's wrong with that??? The only thing I have a problem with is when they add "TXU Energy" to it...

Well I should say that there has been one notable exception recently with the Tampa Bay management listening to their fans' suggestions after the initial unveiling and then incorporating some changes before the finished product hit the ice. Now, was that planned? Or was it just backpedaling in the face of greater-than-anticipated dissatisfaction? Hard to say. Teams like to think that they know best. But maybe it would be better for sales in the long run if they had a preliminary release to float the concept and then made tweaks based upon the reaction.

We need as many sponsors as possible. That's the one thing about the powerplay that isn't wrong.

I don't disagree, I just always hate how it upsets the flow of the announcement

I think they should keep the Jeff K powerplay announcement, it really gets me amped.

The powerplay announcement serves to let the other team know they have a for sure two minutes they don't have to worry about being scored on.

After vigorous testing, I have determined this post to be sarcasm.

The team will replace JeffK's powerplay announcement with Bill Ollerman saying, "Timekeeper, please remove two minutes from the play clock and do not adjust the score."

I never understood why people like Jeff K. Bill has always had the greatest arena voice in the world.

Plus the music selection he has is absolutely demoralizing. Justin Bieber comes on right after a huge momentum change and you really expect players to be pumped? It's really not all about 'motivating yourself' the arena music plays a massive role. Get some metal and aggressive techno or something back. You suck Jeff K

Honestly, the music selection could be worse. If you listen to a lot of arenas around the league it's just abjectly terrible top 40 crap, non-stop. There's no doubt it's gotten worse here too compared to the Reunion heyday, but there's still room for decline.

Jeff K was removed from music duty this past season. Believe he only does in-game entertainment stuff now.

There was a lot more rock this season, or at least, that's what it sounded like when watching from home.

There was a lot more organ/keyboard this year, too. And personally, I like the organ/keyboard.
