Why not? What I am watching right now ain't going to sell tickets.

They should've sold. Get what you could for Ott/Souray/Burish/Robidas.
Ott's value isn't to be much different from now and the trade deadline.

Robidas was just as bad then as he is now, and you still have to find someone willing to take that contract for 2 more year all while being a place Robidas will go to.

Like I said, can't argue with getting picks when you can, but you aren't losing you *** by holding on to Souray.

I would hope that much is obvious... this can't go on and the robidas/morrow/ribeiro "core" is obviously not getting it done

Daley hasn't scored a goal in 41 games. Wow. Didn't realize that.

If they don't win those four games before the deadline was there any doubt Sourey was basically gone? Is Burish for a 5th giving up? Ott for a nice package that brings back a young roster player could be considered as such but that really depends on what his trade return would have been.

Love to agree with you when I can .... but you're pulling that Boston "offer" out of thin air. You're throwing out a great package that may or may not have been available.

You like most Stars fans don't like the guy (not passing judgement) ... Stars don't feel that way. IMO, GMJN trading Souray in his view would have been giving up on the season.

Get the **** off the ice you losers. Embarrassed in every facet.

I'm going to lose my ****ing **** if we don't see some sweeping changes on Tuesday to this lineup. Smith and Wandell in. Shaking up the D-pairings. PP
lineup changed dramatically. Something, anything.

Sticking with what isn't working is insane.

Exactly ... and it's ridiculous to speculate. Teams still like guys like Ott ...even several months after a trade deadline. He's still a decent trade chip.

Nitpicking ... Wandell is still sick. The scratch was not a coach's decision.

I agree. The Stars found themselves back in the playoff race and decided not to sell. It's not that big of a deal.

And BigG has just encapsulated my problem with GMJN. He likes Sourey and his leadership. I see a slow, defensively questionable player with a big shot that as likely to be blocked or missed as to be on target or generate a rebound. Great lockerroom guy with injury issues, what's that gotten ya?

... and until last night and tonight ... they were still in a very good position to get in.

Now they get to hope someone helps them get in.

That's what we're told but I wouldn't put it past them to lie to us to make it look better on them. (yes I'm in conspiracy mode now )

You know it's bad when you're going to that place.
