Are you talking about Jeff K being the new public address anouncer?

I've been in a Graphic Design program for the last year and it looks like they just placed a shield behind the Star to make it look busier and had no other ideas. IMO that shield has no reason to be there, it has no meaning to us or anything. They could come up with something a lot better than that IMO. Unless there is a valid reason of why they got the shield I don't like it

If they go with some Cowboy/Rangers color scheme it will seriously damage the franchise. The fans want green. Attendance is already bad as it is. Add in a lockout and it just makes things even worse. Ditch green on top of that? Just another spit in the face.

The shield is terrible.

Before the start of last season, they changed Jeff K's job title and hired a completely new music guy.

I had totally forgot he was named the new PA guy. How depressing.

I can't believe I didn't notice this until now, but the shield is just a knock-off of the NHL's Western and Eastern conference logos, only flattened out a bit.

Is JeffK single handedly ruining this franchise? It's like he's a spy for San Jose who has the mission of defeating our fans and team.

I just don't get how they can rationalize pissing off the hardcore fans even more than we already are.

Maybe they decided there are more potential new fans out there than fans they already have.

Maybe we're all wrong in the end and we like the final product.

In the meantime, Lites said everyone is thinking big. The team is looking at changing uniforms, logos and possibly even colors.

Talk about the biggest slap in the face there could be.

yeah... the stars feel like now is the time to change everything, since they don't really have any fans left after all the stuff mentioned above.

better change when interest is at an all-time low than change when people actually care that the team exists.

i think that's the most idiotic strategy there is, but then again, this team is horrible at this sort of thing. always has been.

Latest I'm hearing is one of:

Green, navy, silver - kind of Whalers esque

Current color scheme, just with the kelly green as the dominant color.

Of course around these parts those are Mavs colors. Although I guess they've kind of migrated to a sky blue recently. I don't pay much attention to them.

I can definitely see Razor rooting for this. (and Brass Bonanza as the new goal song )

I'm going to laugh if after all this they end up doing what I originally suggested. That would make me happy, but I know there are plenty of people who only want to see dark green so I'd feel bad about that. I still think a lighter green would be a better move though. They could sell it as something new while still respecting their history and not flat-out alienating their remaining fans. They'd be the only team in the league to wear kelly green so they'd have the distinctiveness part down.

I hope you meant Dallas Stars Green, not Kelley Green which is more North Stars.

I actually wouldn't mind the Gold being replaced by Silver, as long as the Stars keep there current Green, heck even swapping Black for Navy (as long as its a dark navy) isn't that horrible.

Something like RTstars11 3rd uniform would be OK.

Just keeping the Dark Green and no red would almost be a victory at this points

Kelly green, navy blue, and silver sounds a lot better than red, white and blue. Just hoping for a green dominated jersey.

The Whalers possessed my all time favorite jerseys and color scheme. It would just be really odd to see something similar on my favorite team. Maybe the front office will just say Eff it and change our name to the Dallas Whalers

I could get behind a whalers like color scheme, at least moreso than red white and blue. It is sort of Canucksy but if green is dominant instead of blue it wouldnt feel like a ripoff.

I know you're joking, but if everything really is "on the table" as they're saying, why not change our name while we're at it?

Oh come on, kelly green isn't that bad.



If you go with dark green you'll forever be competing with the Wild. And Minnesota is always going to win that association.
