If you want to "end it all" ....

...might I suggest the 12 gauge twinkie and NOT flying a damn plane into a building and hurting innocent people?! 
Insensitive of me?  Probably, but after reading Joe Stack's BS that is all over tha innernetz I just cant help but be a wee bit annoyed that he thinks he did something of value by killing innocent people. 
Got a problem with the Government?  Complain.  Vote.  Use your voice.  This dude did not go through anything that you or your families havent gone through in the way of financial hardships or dealing with the IRS or government or whatever.  Depending on your age, maybe it was your parents who dealt with some of the stuff he talks about in the 80s.  I remember the Texas S&L scandal but it isn't like it directly impacted me, I was a kid.  The dot com bust and that is stuff a little closer to my realm of comprehension but still...
This guy is ONE person who decided to blame everyone else for every single bad thing that has ever happened to him and he finally snapped and took it out on people who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.  That is a deplorable act no matter what you have been through. 
Enjoy hell, Stack. 
Otherwise, I do not wish to give him any more press than I already have.

Dear People Who Run Scoreboards For Hockey Games

If you cannot watch a game and run the board at the same time, please PLEASE dont do it.  When you only count 1 of every 3-4 shots on net you completely hose the stats for the goalies....not to mention completely pissing me off.   I get that it is mostly goalie parents who track GA, SA & SV% but we do.  We have ranges we like to see our little goalie cherubs in to see progress from seasons past.  You nimrods who cant run a board F that up.  
Sooo to you hammerheads in _________ I say this:  despite you putting in TWO 0 save games for TGC, she's still in the 80s for SV%. 
Btw...shutout #2 happened Sunday!  WOO HOOO

Welcome To Dallas, Kari Lehtonen....

I will admit that upon hearing the news last night that Nieuwy traded for Kari Lehtonen, "happy" was not the initial response.  However, there are a few other players Dallas has acquired over the years that I could also say that about who turned out to be my favorite players -- the biggest example is Jason Arnott, whom I still love the hell out of to this day and wish really heinous stuff on Doug Armstrong for not resigning him but I will not go there AGAIN in this post.  ;-)

After doing a little more research, I have decided that Kari Lehtonen coming to Dallas is a good thing.  I have a feeling he's here to be Turco's replacement but I have no control over that so it is what it is. 

Below is my own little pictorial on Kari Lehtonen.  I think it is pretty self explanatory. 

And Kari, welcome to Dallas!  You'll have a 11yo goalie wanting your signature on her "stars" goalie stick pretty soon at a public practice so be prepared to be evaluated by the self-proclaimed female version of Ron Hextall.  She'll appreciate your aggressiveness.  She'll really love the pic of you sitting on the net hahaha

and finally.... what's not to love about a goalie throwing signs with Lil Jon?!  WHAAAT?  OOOOKAAAY!

he's got Lil Jon on his mask you know....  yep, should be interesting.... :)

Dammit Dallas Stars....

What do I see this morning on Spector's site? 

USATODAY.COM: Kevin Allen reports the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington Capitals, Nashville Predators, Atlanta Thrashers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and the Ottawa Senators are his picks for teams facing the most intriguing decisions by the trade deadline. Hurricanes forwards Ray Whitney and Matt Cullen are coveted by other clubs, the Capitals might shop for a veteran goalie if Semyon Varlamov remains sidelined, the Predator might consider shopping pending UFA defenseman Dan Hamhuis for scoring help, the Thrashers could shop forward Colby Armstron and goalie Kari Lehtonen, the Leafs could move Alexei Ponikarovsky and possibly Lee Stempniak and Allen feels it's still possible Tomas Kaberle might change his mind about waiving his "no-trade" clause, the Oilers hope to move players like Lubomir Visnovsky who are on long term contracts, the Stars could consider shopping Marty Turco, Jere Lehtinen and Steve Ott if they fall out of the playoff race, the Penguins might ponder adding a winger to Evgeni Malkin's line but Allen doubts they'll pursue Ray Whitney, the Devils might pursue a defenseman now that they've dealt away Johnny Oduya as part of the Kovalchuk trade, and the Senators might add a player or two.

Let me say this one more time...  trade Niskanen, Daley, Turco or even Lehtinen or Modano (although they are our only two "franchise" players left and I cant imagine Modano playing for anyone else but still..) but do NOT ....DO NOT trade Steve Ott. 

Here is my list of deal breaker players that we CANNOT trade (yeah, I know nobody asked me but maybe they should...just sayin):

Steve Ott
James Neal
Jamie Benn
Mark Fistric
Brenden Morrow

I hear Sheldon Souray wants to come to Dallas.  Fascinating.  If he can stay healthy, that'd be a great acquisition.  And.....have I mentioned he's totally hot??  LOL

Better than Christmas!

What could be better than Christmas??  Hockey trade deadline day, that is what.  I love trade deadline day.  Who will get dealt?  How many 'shocker' trades will happen?  Will your favorite team/players be impacted?  It is better than Christmas!  I guess it is mainly because I am Santa at my house so there is no anticipation or surprise when it comes to Christmas, it actually produces stress more than anything else, but trade deadline is full of both and it is awesome!   


We sort of have 2 trade deadline days this season due to the Olympic break and freeze on trades come Feb 12.  Trading can then take place again between the end of the month and March 3. 


So far, some pretty big names have been moved around and it is still early.  What will come next?? 


Stay tuned…. 
Oh and Leaf fans, I'm DYING to know what you think of Burke's wheelin n dealin.  Seriously. 
Toskala - welcome to the Western Conf.  Sure you'll be a backup to Hiller but the Stars play the Ducks quite often and now next time they do, I will be very tempted to sit down near the visitor bench and check you out in person.  Rowr.  Never mind that crazed woman pressing her face against the glass... LOL j/k
