Dallas fans,time to hit the panic button

Although we're only a quarter through the season, Dallas looks like an AHL team. NO chemistry whatsoever,PP blows donkey-balls,and they allowed a short-handed goal,and got shutout for the second time in three games. With names like Modano,Turgeon,Arnott,Young,Zubov,Guerin,they should be atop the Pacific. But they are presently checking in at the cellar. This could be a repeat of the 2001-02 season where they missed the playoffs. Turco is not looking like his 2002-03 self. You might think it has to do with Hatcher's absence?? (SARCASM to the fullest). And before you bring up the "injury" excuse,look at Los Angeles,they're at the top of the Pacific. That's with BOTH Allison, Deadmarsh,Norstrom, & Miller out.

Their only bright spot it 20 year old Trevor Daley.

Now fire Tippet so the Kigns can get him back to help our PP.

Not to mention injuries to Stumpel, Palffy, Armstrong, Brown, Laperriere, Vishnovsky along the way.

Well, to be fair, Andy Murray has had practice with injured players, Tippet not so much.
Dallas' blueline, so formidable before, is seriously depleted right now (not just loss of Hatcher, Sydor went too...plus all their current injuries...none of their acquisitions came close to replacing Hatcher either, non-injured or otherwise) and it certainly doesn't help that their captain isn't playing up to snuff.
The owner's getting pretty ticked off and trade looms.

How do you get practice with injured players? Getting used to sucking?

Dallas still has a solid blueline but they just can't work as a team and get their acts together.

Zubov
Klemm
Matvichuk
Daley
Erskin
Sweeney

Kings blue line for about 10 games:

Visnovksy
Modry
Gleason
Zizhka
Strbak
Corvo


So don't use injuries as an excuse when you're talking to a Kings fan

I meant more of figuring out how to get more out of your non-regulars, the AHL callups.

That's brutal. I've heard people refer to the Penguins as an AHL team...

True but the strenght of the farm also helps but ya the coach plays a big part in the motivational aspect.

Right now the Stars are worse then the Pens. Atleast Pens fans get to watch Fleury.

What happened to that all mighty Turco, Modano, and Lehtinen?

Is that why the Capitals are tearing the East apart this year

Great coach and so on getting his players really motivated, if a coach is needed for that they have more problems than they think but thats another thread all together

Got to feel sorry for Klemm. Leaves the Hawks for this. And he thought the grass was greener over there but it's just as bad at this point.

This doesn't suprise me at all, Dallas took major hits on defense losing Hatcher and Sydor and getting back an aging Teppo Numminen who is not close to the player he was even 2 years ago.

Marty Turco had a career year last season has crashed back to Earth in a big way this season.

Pierre Turgeon's days as a productive NHL'er are over, and should probably be in Utah right now, his $6 mill a year salary really hurts Dallas in any attempts to improve the team.

Mike Modano is having the worst year of his pro career, thats just bad luck that Modano is having a terrible season to go along with everyone elses awful years.

The Stars days as an NHL powerhouse are likely over, will be interesting to see what if any, Armstrong can get for some of these older guys and their big contracts.

I can't figure out MOdano, he's probably one of the most consistant players year in and year out in the nhl...defensively and offensively, this year he just doesn't have it, yet...still time to make up for it but he doesn't look himself anymore.
Although Sundin got off to a poor start offensively and he's back to almost a point per game so anything can happen yet.
