Who will it be?

As much as I hate to say this (being a Spurs fan), I believe it will be the Mavs. Followed by the Rangers....yes, I said it. After that, it's a tossup.

Rangers before the Stars! whome.gif

Man you need to watch some hockey and see what's going on. Even with some goaltender issues good things are happening on the ice in Dallas!

Mavs then Stars...then????????????????

Mavs need to do it this year and get over that hump.

Jerry Jones just announced that he is moving the cowgirls to Plano and going to call them the Plano Goobers. They get my vote.

This is the year for the Dallas Mavericks. The Rangers are doing good things, and I think they might be a playoff team this year. The Cowboys were a Tony Romo messup away from possibly going to the Super Bowl, and I think a new coach is just what they need to get to that level. FC Dallas is looking good, too. The Stars? They can sell the Stars and move them out of state for all I care. Hockey has no place in Texas whatsoever.

Says who? You need to look around man!

Texas has more professional hockey teams than any other state or province in North America!

Just because they're here doesn't mean I have to watch the most boring of all the professional sports. Hockey's only redeeming quality is the fighting, and I can watch boxing or MMA to see that.

... and what in the world does your personal vendetta have to do with the next DFW team to win a championship? ermm.gif

When the Stars win the Stanley Cup in June, how many people will you hear say "Hockey has no place in Texas whatsoever" ?? NO ONE, because obviously it does !!

How many different Texas professional sports franchises (of the 4 major sports leagues) have won a championship since the Stars won the Stanley Cup in 1999? One -- The Spurs three times ?? :hmmm:

The Dallas Stars won't win the Stanley Cup because goaltending wins Stanley Cups and Turco by all accounts is horrid. Maybe Boss302 should give it a shot. The Mavericks will be paraded down the streets of downtown Dallas before anyone else.

One question. If the Rangers were to win the World Series (refrain from snickering, it could happen), where would the parade be? Arlington? Dallas? Ft. Worth maybe?

^ The difference this year is a STRONG backup in Mike Smith (three shutouts so far this season as a rookie backup).

The SECOND that Turco gives up a soft goal in the post-season, enter Smitty wink.gif

You are correct in that goaltending wins Stanley Cups, but to stay Turco is horrid is not fair nor accurate. Occasionally inconsistent - yes! How many Stars games have you watched this season?

Just like the entire Mavs team, Turco needs to get over that mental hurdle and take it to the next level come playoff time. And, the Stars are in a much better position to win a championship before the Rangers! Period!

You ever went to a live game? They are really fun, much better than watching it on TV... I didn't like hockey until I went to see it live, I am a casual fan of it now.

Went to a Ft. Worth Brahmas game a few years ago and literally had to keep myself awake. The hits and checks are a little cooler when you see them live, I will grant you guys that. I'll give hockey one thing, at least it's more exciting than Auto Racing, Golf, and the WNBA.

What really gets me is when Rangers fans bring up the fact that the Cowboys haven't won a post season game in 10 years.

Now I'm a Rangers fan, but for the Rangers fan/Cowboys hater, please be honest--the Rangers have NEVER won a post season game.

It sounds like this poll has turned into a question of which Dallas team do you want to see win a title. The original question was which team will be the next team to win a title.

I vote like this....

1.) Mavs
2.) Cowboys
3.) Stars (I don' t know much about Hockey but I do know benching Turco gets them closer to a Stanley Cup)
4.) Rangers

Take a look around East Texas, better yet take a look around the country, soccer is all around. MLS is starting to grow in reputation and I think it will eventually usurp the NHL as the 4th most popular team sport league in the US.

I'll eat my lucky Dallas Stars hat when that happens.

Hey everyone, come over to my place tonight! There's a MLS game on Versus.

:whistle:

Ain't gonna happen!
