In some ways it reminds me of the Rangers and Josh Hamilton playing in center field. Before the season the club said "Yeah, we know he's injury-prone, we're going to limit the wear and tear on his body this year and keep him in the corner outfield spots." Well, lo and behold you get into the season and they're desperately trying to win games, and Hamilton starts getting run out there in center every day. Then he cracks some ribs doing what Josh Hamilton does naturally, and what? No one can really say they were surprised by that outcome. It'll be the same if Kari succumbs to a groin or back injury. "But we were riding the hot hand..."

But hey, on the other side of the coin they gave the guy a big contract, why shouldn't he play whenever possible? Does the risk of playing a clearly inferior player outweigh the risk of a mishap? Do you just care about the next circled date on the calendar?

well to be fair other than the early back to back they've had lots of days off between games. Its not like he's going every other night for a week. Raycroft is a fine backup but if Dallas is going to continue to give up 40 shots a night Lehtonen has to be out there or this team will get killed.

Lehtonen is right there with Richards and Ribiero for most important to the team. This is a lottery team if he's injured long term.

Absolutely. I wonder if the Stars would scramble to find another goalie at that point? Would we roll with Raycroft and Krahn? A Lethonen injury could set off a chain of events resulting in us losing Richards. Maybe we can get him to accept a trade somewhere at teh deadline and re-visit his status as a dallas star in the offseason.

I really wish we had claimed Ersberg and waived Raycroft, of course that would sort of leave Raycroft in no man's land since I doubt he'd get any time playing in the AHL.

Well it would only make sense if we could get rid of Krahn which I dont see happening. Id certainly feel alot better with Ersberg than Raycroft.

Greiss is better than Ersberg.

We could float Krahn down the Guadalupe for all I care.

for the life of me i just cant understand what crawford has against Fistric. The guy is, at worst imo, the teams 2nd best defensive defenseman.

Same. I think he's stuck on Daly and Niskanen becuase he feels they bring something to the power play and PK (hint, they don't) so he won't scratch them.

For all of the guff Daley takes about his play, particularly in defensive transition, he has been great at putting pressure on the other side.
He has made some bad decisions on when to join the rush, but he has also created some scoring chances and goals that way. Crawford likes him because of his 5v5 play i think more than anything.

Picking up Ersberg wouldn't have changed the fact that Dallas would be screwed. You've got to hope Lehtonen stays healthy. I don't think that's realistic and it will be the reason we're on the outside of the playoffs but for now I'll hope they beat the snot out of Nashville. I don't like Nashville.

this just doesn't make any sense. paranoia at best.

because a goalie gets injured, a key center will be too?

oh no!! our goalie might get hurt! quick lets trade our #1 center!!

Does anyone know where to go to get cheaper than stadium pricing drinks within walking distance of the AAC?

Ok I didnt think I needed to lay it out in full detail. Heres the scenario.
Lethonen gets hurt and Dallas therefore sucks.
Dallas does not have a new owner at the trade deadline.
Dallas is out of the playoff race at the trade deadline.
Dallas is forced to trade Richards rather than risking losing him for nothing.

In the event that Lethonen remains healthy, I think Dallas is in the playoff hunt at the deadline, and holds is willing to risk losing Richards for nothing to make a strong playoff run. I'm very skeptical about Richards willingness to sit through another losing season when many good teams would love ot have him.

I wouldn't call it paranoia. This team's playoff chances hinge on Lehtonen being healthy all season and playing up to his potential. Without him in the lineup on a consistent basis this team will lose games left and right. For example, without Lehtonen during these first few games the Stars' record could easily be reversed. Easily.

If that were to happen and the season goes down the proverbial tubes Richards would really have no reason to desire to keep being a Dallas Star. A bad defense. A goalie who can't stay healthy. These are not a recipe for greater success down the road, and Richards isn't getting any younger.

You mean, other than shotgunning beers in the parking lot?
