Great. This is the first time all season Dallas has gotten through 2 periods without a goal against.

I think we all owe Tony an apology. We've all made fun of him because he clearly has no systems. Well after further review, I think that's completely inaccurate.

- Having the defencemen rush the puck through 4 opponents lined up at the blue line only to inevitably lose the puck ON THE POWER PLAY...well, that's a system. Not sure exactly what kind of stupid horsesh1t system it is but one thing is sure, no player that's made it to the NHL level would think that to attack 1 on 5 while SLOWING UP your 4 teammates at the blueline is a good idea. Somebody is telling them to do this and it's NOT WORKING....but please Granatool, don't mind us...keep trying. Moron.

This is like a replay from last night. The other team is playing like crap, but we're making no effort to score, or make smart plays. Just playing another game like they don't care if they lose.

Why won't this team just send the puck to the point, and have everyone go to the net after they cycle it down low for a while, instead of just cycling to kill time, and then turn the puck over after another low percentage pass.

I've seen a D or a forward try that about four or five times now this game. They have no idea how to enter the zone, especially on the PP. It's like they never practice it, because they're like deer in headlights trying things out there. How can this coaching staff be so bad? You could take away all three of them, and the team would play exactly the same.

Well we did have a couple good scoring chances in the second , but the Stars scored right after

Granato is awful, obviously things aren't working on the PP its time to change the forward lines up a bit. Smyth-Stastny-Hejduk gets it done 5 on 5 but for some reason they stink together on the PP. Break them up, get Hensick out on one of the two units, our PP was looking better when Hensick centered the first unit and Stastny the other.

These lines aren't working anymore look for some different combos. I would give Stewart a chance he has looked good in minimal opportunities...at least he is hustling. Hensick needs to play more than Ice Turd. I think the second line would take off if you centered it with Hensick. I don't know why Hensick is in the doghouse, it seems like he got demoted for some reason...all i know is he is +4 which means he is taking care of things in his own end and that is one of the best marks on the team.

I'm over this crap...how do you get completely outplayed by a team that is the worst team in the conference? The sad part is its only 1-0, which shows how bad they are. Could we please find some consistency and possibly the net. That would be a nice change of pace wouldn't it.

Julie Browman can't complete a sentence without f'ing up. Her old position with Altitude must have been under Kroenke's desk.

What a pad save there by Budaj. He's doing what he needs to do. You have to score to win a game though.

Jones looks so much more NHL ready than Stewart does. Maybe a lot of that is nerves with him playing his first game, but he doesn't seem to be confident in what he should do on the ice, with or without the puck.

Finally a good chance happens. I thought they'd never shoot again.

Come on. This is stupid. Turco's not playing that well, but once again we know how to make a goaltender look like he's standing on his head.

I love how we finish every good scoring chance with a weak shot, or a predictible play.

Seriously. I've gotten so tired from watching the game. I'm only watching out of habit at this point. So boring.
