Bye Bye Boucher <3

September 3, 2009

After 17 years with the NHL, Philippe Boucher has decided to call it quits.  He was an extremely loved player in his time here with the Dallas Stars and the NHL is going to be without one fantastic defenseman. 

We’re going to miss you Bouch <3

There’s two positives

June 30, 2009

Stars have extended an offer to Fishsticks, which makes me extremely happy.

But not as happy as them signing Jere Lehtinen to a 1-year deal.  Thank God.  I have been having nightmares about a lack of finns on this team.

Now onto nightmares of being Russianless

Thank God, Modano

May 11, 2009

Well hello there.  Been a long time hasn’t it?  I’ll get around to start doing some summer updatings.  I promise.

Here is some fantastic news; Modano is OFFICIALLY returning for the 09-10 season.  Bless you Modano.  BLESS YOU!

I can put my crafts aside that I was going to use to make OMG DON’T LEAVE ME MO sign to hold up at the baseball game.

Nuff said

And we thought it couldn’t get any worse

April 3, 2009

Yet again, I have been proven wrong.

First off, I will apologize for lack of updates; last Saturday I had previous made plans with friends for a birthday, and all this last week I was serving jury duty.

So what’s been going on?  Well, since the last game I updated the Stars are 1-2-1.  Great run for the playoffs, guys.

How did it get worse?  Heika is now reporting that more than likely, Turco will NOT play in the final home game of the season tomorrow night against the Blue.  UM WHAT?!  An undisclosed lower-body injure.  Are you serious Hockey Gods?  What is this nonesense?  It is undeserved!  

Mike Modano was also on the ticket this morning, saying he is unsure if he will return for the 09-10 season.  Why…WHY MO!!  Don’t. Leave. Me.

March 26, 2009

You can pretty much count on these for every game remaining this season (unless a personal obligation gets in the way).  Prepare for another interesting/close game between these 2 teams.

1st period

Positive #1: Daley was at least able to leave the ice upright.

Positive #2: Kings take a penalty.  WOO!! (bout 15:00)

Positive #3: Stars managed to kill the Kings power play.  Phew

Positive #4: Fishsticks out with Robi!!!!

Positive #5: Wandell smiling at the camera.  <3

Positive #6: Kings take another penalty! (7:05)

Positive #7: Barchie finally fighting with Ivanans after he knocked Daley out of the game.

Liveblog: Stars vs. Canucks 03/24/09, Happy edition

March 24, 2009

So, I am going to liveblog the game, but only mention the positives so it’ll be a tad different.

Might be the shortest liveblog ever.

Pregame
They start with a mention of Tippett and him being safe.  As Rhadigan said “as he should be” should be included in any mention of that.  Period.

Razor is interviewing Robi, one of the few players who leaves everything he has on the ice.  Robi speaks of his infinite wisdom.  Listen grasshoppers.

Postive #1: Robi’s nose is still in tact.

1st period
Positive #2:
Luongo took a stupid pill and played the puck in the corner at 19:19.  Penalty on Vancouver

Positive #3: Begin has returned to the lineup

Postive #4: Brendan Morrison makes it 1-0 Stars, with assists from Fistric and Begin.

Positive #5: That was Morrison’s 500th NHL point, against his old team.  Good job Sonny.

Positive #6: Swede-tastic line of Lundy, Brunnstrom and Wandell.

Positive #7: Fishsticks pushes and holds Burrows on the boards(10:33).  I still hate Burrows from the 07 Playoffs.

Positive #8: Otter is getting Burrows, which pleases me greatly.  (8:02)

Positive #9: Otter half stripping in the penalty box.

Positive #10: Begin returns to the game.  Woo.

Positive #11: Somehow, the Stars managed to outshoot the Canucks 14-7

Hello from California!

March 5, 2009

I am currently in LA for vacation (and heading to the Stars game tonight), and even though I’m sure everyone saw, the Stars have claimed Brendan Morrison.

I was always slight annoyed by him when we played against him to hear Brendan Morr… and get all excited, only to realize they were talking about the -ison not -ow.  So I will be calling the new Brendan Sonny.  Just cause I can!

It’s nice to keep it all in the family, seeing as Sonny is Razor’s Brother-In-Law!

Peace out, yo

The New York Rangers have claimed Sean Avery off waivers.  It wasn’t a secret the Rangers wanted them back.  They were who allowed Avery to go to their farm team. 

Can’t say I’m sad or that I’ll miss him.  Good Riddance.

Jussi Jokinen returns to Finland

March 2, 2009

In extremely sad news, Jussi Jokinen has returned to Finland because of the death of his Father.  This is incredibly sad news and our thoughts are with Jussi and his entire family.
