I didn't see this here, but they said on the broadcast the Robidas said some things about Perry being dirty to some media, which may explain why that happened, and part of why I think it was stupid and selfish to fight.

Oh I agree. I just think Jagr is capable of slowing down the game. Something the rest of our line up struggles with. Besides Loui, Jagr, and Ryder, the rest of the team is more skate, skate, skate, and cycle(something Morrow is not very good at due to his less than great puck handling skills)

Plus that is pretty much the Ducks style of play, why go to that level instead of making them play the Stars' way? I agree that trading Robidas for Perry for 5 minutes is a good deal for Dallas, but in the context of 2 rookie defensemen now playing more against players like Getzlaff, Ryan, and Selanne, it could have backfired bigtime. Finally, it feels like a thing Steve Ott would have gotten into on one of his stupider days.

For whatever reason, Robidas always brings it against the Ducks, and while I appreciate that, its too bad he can't seem to be energized when Dallas plays the Blue Jackets or the Oilers or the Coyotes.

i'm not sure how perry can steal the momentum when it's still even play. when we lose an okay dman and they lose a primo forward. and the rookies are playing at or above robidas' level anyway. and you reference, "play the stars way" .... what way is that? what have we established as an easily recognizable identity?

and ott got into things that wound up with us shorthanded, not even strength with one of the opposing team's best players in the box and us with an ok player in the box.

That pic represent my feelings at the time.. It was a closer game as it should had been.. And the killer goal went to the player who needed it the most. LOUI!!

Gully might know what he's doing.

Robidas is looking fine. I really really liked him tonight.

Morrow might be good.

I think Gulutzan might finally be coming around, but the other 2 points you raise are pretty hilarious
