First and foremost, these Stars can skate and make games interesting; yes, Dallas lost their first two games in overtime shootouts and it’s a tough way to start the year.
But they looked great in both of those games, regardless of the ultimate outcome.
Marty Turco, who in many circles (both fans and beyond) is being talked about as trade-bait, still looks great in net and has proven he can still make remarkable saves and is a professional goalie.
In addition, and it’s sad but true
Here’s the thing with the 2009-10 Dallas Stars hockey team, though: They have the talent. They have the speed. They also have the defensive presence to really make a name for themselves in this league
With returning forwards to the franchise such as Modano, Morrow, Loui Eriksson, Jere Lehtinen, Steve Ott, Mike Ribeiro, and Brad Richards
The 2009-10 Stars also have a new coach at the helm in Marc Crawford
In addition, Dallas returns this season with a solid defense
The Stars return to the rink on Friday, Oct. 9, against the Calgary Flames on the road
Look for Dallas to come out quick and aggressive as they aim to pick up their first win of the young season this Friday against Calgary.
Morrow, Neal, and Brunnstrom are looking good early-on this year offensively for this Dallas hockey team, and it’s only a matter of time before their teammates get involved and the Stars start racking up some goals and some wins.
Let’s hope that win-streak begins this Friday against the Flames…
