Stars hire Crawford

The Dallas Stars have hired Marc Crawford to be their next head coach. The move comes one day after the team announced the dismissal of Dave Tippett.

According to the team's website, Crawford will be introduced at a news conference on Thursday in Dallas.

This will be Crawford's fourth assignment behind an NHL bench. He began his career with the Quebec Nordiques-Colorado Avalanche franchise, and also coached the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings....

Hahaha that's a mistake. Crawford is done as a coach. He was done while he was still in Vancouver, he embarrassed himself in LA, and now he's going to drive the Stars into the ground. Sorry Lobo, you deserve better than this.

the Stars need to go through a mini-rebuild anyways once some of their older players retire, amirite?

at least if they want to be competitive, right now I see them as a 5-8 playoff team that will have trouble in the playoffs for a number of years, so this might be better in the long run

I just want to thank Joey N. for saving CBC and taking Crawford away.

Thanks Dallas.

My condolences to your team though.

It's an interesting hiring. Crawford's status has fallen in the last few years. He's a former Cup champion with an excellent record. He's not a strong strategist, but he is a good players' coach who's a good handler of young talent. He also favours an up-tempo style, and he wants his defencemen to join the rush.

He's definitely a contrast from the defensive style favoured by Hitchcock and Tippett.

Dallas suffered a perfect storm last year. Their lockerroom was fractured by Sean Avery's negative influence. Marty Turco had an awful start. Zubov and Morrow went down to injuries. Then Avery was dropped, and the Stars had an outstanding record for two-and-a-half months. I think they had a stretch of 21-10-3. But it seemed that after Brad Richards went down, that was the last straw. They went 7-14-3, or something like that down the stretch.

I think this Dallas team still has a lot going for them, especially if Turco bounces back. They'll have two good scoring lines once Morrow and Richards return. They have a good young defence, and they'll get Zubov back next year, too. Those young defencemen could really benefit from Crawford's presence.

Oh my! Clueless Crawford?

Stars spiral in. Franchise suicide.

Tippet is hired before September.
