  1. The offense will certainly be more potent with Duchene around. I imagine he slots in on the Seguin line, since they really need a playmaker to catalyze that group. The bigger problem here is that the defense isn't any better. Harley was a great add at the end of last season, and hopefully that play carries over to this year. We spent a 1st on Lundkvist for a reason, so he needs to be trusted to play big minutes. Hakanpaa is slow and a liability, as is Suter. It is really going to depend on how much we play those two, and how much we trust Harley and Lundkvist. Also, Oettinger can't play as many games as he did last year. He was simply worn out by the Vegas series. Wedge has to play at least 25 games this year to give Oetter a break.
  2. 39th in the nation for average salaries in Texas, and yet we have grandstanding plebs who think vouchers are the way. Their representatives have created the education problem in Texas, but they blame teachers (and the plebs believe it).
  3. I know the Senate Parliamentarian determined that it could not be passed as budget reconciliation.
  4. I still don't understand why they felt the need to make this statement. Yes, the Mavs are not doing it and you share a building, but you're a wholly different organization in a wholly different league.
  5. Still doesn't compute that we are 3 wins away from reaching the Cup Final for the first time since 2000.
  6. The Stars are so mind boggling. They had an anemic offense all year, and then have scored 5+ goals in 5 of their last 7 games.
  7. If the Stars can continue to play like they have in Game 6 vs. Calgary and Game 1 vs. Colorado, they have a legitimate shot at the Cup this year
  8. Jim Montgomery, the second year Head Coach for the Dallas Stars was fired, and the organization and NHL are being very tight lipped about it. Rick Bowness will replace him as interim head coach. The Stars are currently 17-11-3, and play the Devils tonight https://www.nhl.com/news/dallas-stars-fire-coach-jim-montgomery/c-312390558
  9. I gotta say, as fun as he is, his hockey takes are way out of touch now. He doesn't understand how the game is changing from brawny, dump and chase brawlers, to smaller skilled guys with tons of speed. SN should have retired him 5 years ago
  10. Rangers need to make a very hard run at Gerrit Cole. A rotation of Cole/Lynn/Minor would be a great start

  13. There are some reports that the Rangers are in some serious talks with David Murphy as well
  14. I think Mazara gets the chance in LF this year before Gallo does. Mazara doesn't have the huge holes in his swing that Gallo does, plus more speed and a natural outfielder Also, if Delino suffers any lengthy slump, look for them to call up Brinson to take that spot, unless James Jones absolutely wows everyone
  15. Anyone else watching this show? I thought it was hilarious for the first episode, but then again, I love Craig Ferguson.

  17. And there goes harelip with the curveball. I'm sorry that reading comprehension isn't your strong suit
  18. This gives a whole different meaning to walking a mile in another man's shoes
  19. And that's what makes it a great country. You can continue to try and tell someone what they should do if they don't something and that person can continue to do whatever the heck they want, because what you think and want has no bearing on their travels or comments. Thank God for rights
  20. Man, if I had the kind of opportunities that these guys do, I would be taking my happy butt to the house every chance I could. Forget all this night life stuff That's the problem. It wasn't a non issue to begin with. He continues to put himself in these kind of situations.
  21. I can't change the channel. Most of the other ones in here are garbage!
