Should i change the thread title to Benedict Arnold Vs. Dallas?
Whoa, there. Benedict Arnold wasn't paid to cross lines. Arnold didn't complain of his role within the Continental Army and then settle for the same or reduced role with the British. Arnold didn't unleash his wife to slam his former followers. I'm not sure which is worse, but there's not really a comparison.
While the above is in good/bad humor, if I was going to the game I'd boo him, and I have only ever booed A-Rod and Marchment before. Well, I've booed Steve Buechelle, but for a different reason. It's not so much the person as the jersey.
yup losing Rafalski for a period of time is a big setback for Detroit, he's a really important piece of their PP and one of their top players overall.
well we beat Detroit 3 out of 4 last season and 4 out of the last 5 overall If I remember correctly... they basically have the same team as last season plus Hudler and Modano but now minus Rafalski... should be a tough and hard fought game, but I like the Stars energy from the whole home opener thing and the 4 days off to give them the edge.
To win, it is absolutly essential for Dallas to come out flying and really take the fight to Detroit early in my opinion - in terms of physicality and possession. I'd like to see alot more of that 1st and 2nd period vs. the Devils.
Modano will/should get a warm reception in Dallas, I think.
And then it's down to business.
Agreed with those who feel he'll be somewhat of a "marked man" throughout the game.
If our d holds steady, I can see the Stars emerging victorious here.....no blowing leads, no getting outshot by a wide margin, just smart hockey and we'll send Mike out of the AAC with warm memories and little else.
(Of course, if it's already a blowout in the Stars favour, you know I won't complain if Modano decides to net one or two )
If you're telekinetic and you know it, clap my hands!
Detroit did not look very impressive to me. It's nice to see they are vulnerable after two pretty strong games to open the year against Anaheim and Chicago.
I think Dallas needs to approach this game on Thursday the exact same way Colorado went about getting Detroit to OT tonight. Hopefully the fact that Dallas isn't playing on tired legs means they can get the win in regulation
