It's at 3, but still playoff games take 4 hours to finish. Should just play the game on the jumbotron in the AAC. I was gonna go, but i'm actually going to go watch UNT football. Go Stars.

I hope someone rocks him, not out of the play or anything, but as they would anyone else just to kind of say "Yea, we loved you while you were here, but now you're the enemy and you're gonna get the **** knocked outta you like everyone else now."

The casual fan would much rather stay home and watch something they've never seen before than watch a regular season game that really means nothing. At least imo they would.

Going to cheer for Mo regardless. It wasn't his choice, but Joe's.

Now Bertuzzi, I hope Otter cleans his clock!

Modano wasn't done playing, I don't fault him at all for not retiring automatically after being cut from the Stars' future plans.

Still hope he does well in Detroit.

I agree.
I'm just not one of the few people who still thinks Modano is part of the team. He might always be a Star, but that's once he retires; until then, he's another skater who has the ability to screw up our chances at the playoffs.

Really? Because that's how he was acting his last few seasons here. I fire people who give that level of effort, and I'm not paying them nearly as much as he makes.

I don't fault him for not retiring.. I do fault him for being a sorry excuse for as star caliber player, and resting on his laurels and weight within the organization.

I was wondering the same thing about who gets in the first decent/big hit on Modano. Not as a going out of their way to hit 'that guy' type of thing, but in the flow of the game. Ott is a good bet but my money goes to Robidas lining him up coming into the zone.

I wish Benn was healthy and playing to kind of round things out poetically (new chapter theme), but it should be a fun one all around. Go current Stars.

The peeps over in the game thread on LGW seem to think that we're going to be booing Modano tonight.

Why the hell would we do that to the greatest player ever to play for this franchise?

I honestly doubt anybody gives Mo a huge hit. He might get jostled a bit but not rocked.
I wish I could be there tonight, I have lots of mixed feelings about this game. Oh well I might make it up to Detroit when the Stars play there later on this season.
Go Stars

well that's an unexpected surprise. It's obviously good news for Dallas - Osgood is a hollow shell of what he used to be, and really he wasn't even very good "back in the day".

Now watch him shut us out lol

Dallas better come out flying and test him early. Detroit stacks up pretty similar to New Jersey, they have 2 great forward lines and then 2 more grinding defensive lines but with some decent scoring options on those too. Depth at defence is a major concern for them. Like I said, Dallas would do well to test the defence and goaltending early.

GO STARS GO

Well I wish he wasn't "very good" back in 08 during that playoff series. God knows how Game 2 would've turned out if not for a couple of great saves by him. And I fully believe we would've come back all the way in game 6 if it weren't for him. We completely dominated them that 3rd period.

There will likely be some boos, but I'm not sure why that necessarily makes those people stupid. It is what it is. For all any of us know the boos will be directed at Mrs. Modano via hubby.

Personally, given the things that were said and where he went I think the best reaction would be crickets. He had his goodbye. Are we supposed to get out the kneepads every time he comes back to Dallas?

Lineup tonight as per ESPN Dallas:

Quote:
Neal-Richards-Eriksson
Morrow-Ribeiro-Ott
Sutherby-Ott-Petersen
Barch-Wandell-Segal

Grossman-Robidas
Fistric-Daley
Skrastins-Niskanen

Lehtonen
Not sure about Barch, does Detroit even have a fighter? I think Brunnstrom would have been a better choice on the third line. You know he's in the doghouse when he doesn't even get a start vs the Wings.

Ott... ... Ott?

Stepneski needs a smack in the face. Just a little one.

I would assume that the lines would really be

Neal-Richards-Eriksson
Morrow-Ribeiro-ADAM BURISH
Sutherby-Ott-Petersen
Barch-Wandell-Segal

Grossman-Robidas
Fistric-Daley
Skrastins-Niskanen

Lehtonen
Raycroft

Man those bottom two lines look like crap without Benn.

God, what does Brunnstrom have to do to get in a damn game?

I thought it was obvious that Brunnstrom-Wandell-Ott should be our 3rd line until Benn returns, but Crawford obviously disagrees.

Even Sutherby-Wandell-Brunnstrom would've been much better. That trio showed real chemistry last season. Ott could've cooled his heels on the 4th line until he stops taking penalties, or grabbed Burish's place.

But that bottom 6 is just a waste of everyone's time. I find you substandard, Crawford, and I wish for you to go away and never come back.

I'd boo Modano, and it is because he had a choice in what to do after the season. He chose to delay a decision as long as possible. He chose to send out almost every signal he was going to retire, until Nieuwendyk did him a favor by cutting him loose. Modano chose to go elsewhere to accept the same role in Detroit he had in Dallas, even though he was unhappy with that role in Dallas.

Oh, and primarily I'd boo him because he's wearing a Red Wings jersey.
