these are the types of games that Dallas simply has to win if they are going to make the playoffs. St. Louis always plays us hard but I have confidence we can take the win at home..

Not every time. I haven't run the numbers on that matchup in a while, but Tippett's won at least one game.

Moral of the story? There's a chance Tippett changes tactics just a bit to counter what Murray does to him.

I think that is an unfair way to characterize the majority of Stars fans on this thread. I don't believe the recent 2 game losing streak concerns too many people considering it's against 2 of the top teams in the West. Plus Dallas played OK against Chicago, but played a great game (considering the circumstances) against the top team in the league.

Most fans are concerned with the injury situation. It's nice to point at how resilient the Stars are, but you can't keep losing players and expect them to keep winning. I don't remember a time that Dallas has lost 5 players long term in a playoff race (Zubov, Morrow, Avery, Richards, Petersen). Yeah I included Avery, despite the fact that he failed to impress, the Stars were counting on him to be a Top 6/9 player for them.

Being optimistic is fine, but not to the point that people become unrealistic. For example, I believe they can still make the playoffs because of the way Marty Turco has played, but I’m not so delusional that I don’t realize their chances of not being a Top 8 team are probably greater if they go forward with the group they have now.

I'm holding out hope, very slim hope, that Joel Lundqvist realizes that the playoffs have officially started. If he goes into playoff mode, Dallas should be covered with their forwards.

I'm not foolish enough to believe it would happen, but I'd like to see if Vishnevskiy could get the PP up and running. I don't know how he'd fit into the Game Day 20 roster spots, but he's a realistic solution in the system. I'd feel better about giving up assets for a defenseman if they tried him out first and determined he wasn't a logical option for this season.

Conner was recalled at some point last night (Krahn sent down), so he might be playing on Thursday.

I think map94 said he will become an UFA if doesn't play a certain number of games this year. Let's at least hope he doesn't reach that plateau.

He's already played 19 games this season. Wonder what the game number would have to be.

The spread between players in +/- on St. Louis is fascinating. Their leading scorer, Boyes, clocks in at -18. Then you have Berglund at +14. McDonald at -12. Oshie at +8. Especially strange since those minus guys aren't playing the top competition either.

edit: to expand on Berglund, he's got a delta of +1.68 in even strength goals for per 60/goals against per 60. Which is impressive for anyone, amazing for a rookie. This guy is absolutely for real.

edit2: and this isn't a Wheeler type situation either where everyone around him has an amazing differential, makes it even more impressive.

Maybe he can accumulate the extras from Modano. I mean we know Modano doesn't actually play a full game, more like a fifth of a game most nights, so why can't the NHL give Conner credit for 1.8 games per actual one scheduled game? Modano has said he likes Conner.

Well I can't wait for tomorrow now. I want to know if Tippett has gone Bat **** Crazy or if these lines are a result of Ott and Lundqvist missing practice.

Quote:
Eriksson-Ribeiro-Lehtinen
Neal-Modano-Conner
Barch-Sutherby-Sawada
Brunnstrom-Xxxxx-Parrish
Why I have hope?

1) Tippett said yesterday how much he liked the Swede line
2) Conner with Modano makes sense only because he always plays there when up
3) I assume Ott will play with Ribeiro seeing as how that is the only line that has survived all the injuries so far.

Why I'm terrified?

1) The coach is Dave Tippett. He does crazy **** every once in a while.
2) Tippett usually just throws a place holder in for the injured/resting player. I'd have felt more comfortable if Parrish was skating next to Ribeiro in practice with Eriksson and Brunnstrom getting centered by Barnes. That is how it has been most of the year if someone missed a practice.

I believe the lines will look like this tomorrow, best guess:

Ott-Ribeiro-Lehtinen
Neal-Modano-Conner
Eriksson-Lundqvist-Brunnstrom
Barch-Sutherby-Sawada

Not what I want, but it seems like what they'll go with.

I dislike those lines, they're spreading what little offense we have way too thin. It is definitely time to absolutely stack our scoring together. Put the best forwards you have on the PP out there. Make sure that you shift guys like Ribeiro more and give him two combinations of wingers if need be.

I personally don't like Lehtinen on the top line much just because he hasn't been producing a whole lot, and I think it'd be good to see Eriksson or Brunnstrom there. My point is, cram everyone with offensive skills on the first two lines and give them as much time as you can, with the way the scoring has gone the last couple of games it's time for Tippett to stop pretending we have some depth, at least enough to put Conner on the top 2 lines (blech).

Sawada will play. He's earned it IMO (but then again, so did Neal and Fabian early in the season and lol @ what happened).

I admit having Conner or Parrish won't matter IMO. They both fail too much for my liking.
