I don't think so. The Dallas GM's always say they are behind him and trust him. The other day, Hull went out of his way to say the coaches were doing everything they could. He placed all the blame on the players.
Of course, I also just read the Tampa's new owners went on the XM radio NHL show and said Melrose's job was "very secure" about a week ago.
This team is super talented, so Tippett will have to get them gelling soon, or he definitely will be on thin ice.
I'm not sold on the Avery pickup by Hull & Co. I think he is an effective player, but the Stars already had that role plenty filled by Ott and Barch etc. Avery isn't really needed in Dallas. I think he'll be moved before the season is out.
Holy crap that did look like the Stars at times. Esp whem the red #1 goalie protected his crease, and did he have one of Martys old mask on??? maybe it was just me... That was some great stuff, must not have been filmed in the US..Holy crap could you hear the outrage.....
With mullet man gone after 10 games, is Super Dave skating on thin ice, after the play so far???
He survived after one of the worse playoff performances since the most the Texas in 2004.
He survived after Colorado upset in 2006 in 5 games.
He survived after a pretty bad regular season (by Stars standards in 2007).
He survived after we lost in game 7, even though most fans were calling for his head, in 2007 against Vancouver.
He survived after losing a hold on the Pacific Division in 2008.
He'll survive after this.
