Dallas Fires GM Doug Armstrong

From the Dallas Stars,

Dallas Stars Chairman of the Board and Owner Thomas O. Hicks announced today that he has relieved Doug Armstrong from his duties as General Manager of the hockey club.

What A Comeback

Normally I don’t do game recaps, but last night the Kings were down 4-0 going into the 3rd period and came back to win 6-5 in OT…

from the AP via NHL.com,

Marty Turco didn’t seem too rattled after Dustin Brown spoiled his shutout bid with 7:14 left in the third period. After all, the Dallas Stars still had a three-goal lead, so what could possibly spoil it?

How about five goals on six shots?...

“The whole third period was brutal,” Turco said. “Other than embarrassing, it’s a total lack of respect for each other. You can’t just sit back and wait for it to go your way. You’ve got to make things happen. And we haven’t been making enough happen. We were just lucky to get a point out of all that.”

Watch the comeback…

President Bush Calls Modano

from the Dallas Morning News,

The Stars center was on the ice playing the Phoenix Coyotes when a call came from the White House. So he had to wait until Friday morning to take the call in which President Bush offered congratulations to Modano for becoming the all-time American-born point scorer in NHL history.

“He was great,” Modano said. “He just told me how special it was and how I should be proud.”

Modano Gets it Done

From the CP via TSN,

Dallas centre Mike Modano broke Phil Housley’s NHL record for career points by an American-born player with two quick goals in the opening minutes of the Stars’ game against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.

Modano’s two goals in the first 4:24 gave him 1,233 points in 1,253 regular-season games _ 242 games fewer than Housley played.

Housley Feels For Modano

From Mike Heika at The Dallas Morning News,

Phil Housley feels for Mike Modano.  He thought his record would be broken earlier in the season, too.

Housley, the owner of the NHL’s all-time scoring record by an American-born player, has been waiting for the phone call telling him that Modano had eclipsed his total.

But Modano’s slow start has allowed the record chase to drag on a bit.

“It’s tough on him, I can tell,” Housley said by phone as he vacationed in Arizona on Friday. “But I know he’s going to get it. It’s just a matter of time.”

Modano Has No Plans To Waive NTC

from the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

Called up Mike Modano and asked him about the Eklund rumor that he might waive his no-trade clause for a chance to move somewhere else, and Modano said he has not thought about that and doesn’t plan on asking for a trade or waiving his no-trade clause.

“Yeah, I heard about that, too. It’s not true,’’ he said. “I plan on being there tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that. I’m just going to keep showing up and work myself through this.’‘

more and thanks to Spector for the pointer…

How many of these made-up rumors have come true?  If you are a true fan of the game, stick to people who actually know the game!

2 Goal NHL Debut

From David Pollak at the Mercury News,

The guy hasn’t been around the locker room long enough for the Sharks to agree on his nickname - Coach Ron Wilson calls him Seto, Joe Thornton refers to him as Gooch.

Either way, rookie Devin Setoguchi was the difference-maker Monday night, scoring two third-period goals in his first NHL game to lead the Sharks to a 4-2 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars.

My vote is definitely ‘Seto’. Anyway, just for the heck of it, here’s the video from ESPN showing his career highlights thus far.  Nice way to start.

USA Hockey Milestones in Reach Tonight

From Mike Heika at The Dallas Morning News,

Tonight could be a memorable night for USA Hockey.

Stars center Mike Modano sits two points shy of tying Phil Housley for the most points by an American-born player. San Jose forward Jeremy Roenick is two goals shy of becoming only the third American-born player to record 500 goals in his career. Roenick said he’d like to see both milestones attained on the same night.

“It would be nice, because Mike would be in the building,” said Roenick, who contemplated retirement in the off-season. “He’s one of the guys who told me, ‘Hey, you’ve got to stick around,’ which meant the world to me.”
