The Rant In Dallas

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Why all the fuss? Jim Lites, an expensive suit doing the bidding of a fellow who can afford to wear an even more expensive suit, didn’t even call Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin “fat puss-ie toads.”

Now that would have turned the Stars’ CEO’s wildly entertaining premeditated rant against the franchise’s two top-paid players into something almost Steinbrenneresque.

But no, this was no such passion-fueled tirade as the one the late Yankees’ principal owner once regrettably unleashed against the late Hideki Irabu. Wasn’t passion-fueled, but rather premeditated and likely more scripted than an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” And of course, it was delivered by a hired hand, not the owner himself.

We get it. Owner Tom Gaglardi is fuming over the uninspired play and disappointing production of Benn, the captain, and Seguin, the No. 1 center, both of whom are on lavish, market-based contracts Lites so identifies as not the problem that he feels compelled to insist no one resents the money after citing the money more than once.

continue plus more topics like this...

Remembering the Whalers in Raleigh, N.C., in the final game before Christmas had nothing to do with selling more licensed green merchandise and everything to do with honoring the Hartford heritage because the owner Tom Dundon is such a romantic, I’m pretty sure that’s true.

Afternoon Line- Jim Lites

"But for me, it's pissed me off, what nobody says is what is completely obvious to me: We are getting terrible play from our top two players."

"If 14 and 91 don't lead, we will not be successful. I think this is the most talented and deep team we've had in years here. Certainly, this is the best team that we've put together from a talent perspective since Tom Gaglardi's owned the franchise. Tom has allowed us to do everything we needed to do to be successful. Whatever it's taken, he's done. And I am tired of getting emails from him saying 'What the hell is going on with our best players?'"

-Jim Lites, CEO of the Dallas Stars.  Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas News has more.

Video- Does Flames Goaltender David Rittich Have A Legitimate Complaint?

from Wes Gilbertson at the Calgary Sun,

Calgary Flames goaltender David Rittich was steamed.

Because he’d just moments earlier allowed an overtime marker, with Dallas Stars sharpshooter Tyler Seguin capitalizing on the first shift of three-on-three to lift the out-of-town team to Wednesday’s 4-3 OT triumph at the Saddledome.

But mostly because he didn’t think that Seguin’s glove-ide snipe should have counted.

Stars captain Jamie Benn had bumped the masked man as he tried to sneak through his crease and although the NHL’s review crew determined that Rittich had enough time to reset to face the shot after that contact, the Flames’ emerging fan favourite certainly didn’t see it that way.

“He hit me so I was a little bit set, but not 100% ready for anything,” Rittich protested post-game. “Everyone saw it — I had a little bit of time, but not the full recovery of the shot.

“Maybe next time I will lay down for a half an hour.”

“Ken Hitchcock Hockey”

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Is this it, Edmonton? Is this what we get now, 0-0 hockey deep into two of the last three games?

Is this (gulp) Ken Hitchcock hockey?

“For me, personally, I’m happy with this,” said Oscar Klefbom, who found his first goal of the season in overtime as the Edmonton Oilers outlasted Dallas 1-0 in a Tuesday snoozer. “For the game of hockey? I’d rather win 5-0 and have a lot of goals and a lot stuff going on. But for me as a defenceman, when we have Mikko (Koskinen) in the net, that’s a solid game for us.”

There’s a balance in this success-starved town. The tickets are expensive, but a spot in the playoffs would be a nice change.

Klefbom gets it.

“When I was a kid and would go to see my hometown team and it was a 1-0 game? I was mad. ‘What’s going on here? I came to see some goals.’ But now, I’m happy, as long as we win.”
