Flames Prepare For Avery

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,

Dion Phaneuf is well aware Sean Avery will be coming after him tonight.

At least with his words.

Avery, one of the NHL’s premier—to put it politely—disturbers, doesn’t usually need a specific reason to verbally spar with opposing players.

Phaneuf, however, is a big target for Avery when he and the Dallas Stars take to the ice to face the Calgary Flames at the Saddledome.

Phaneuf’s is in a relationship with actress Elisha Cuthbert, who previously dated Avery.

At A Loss With Another Loss

from Five for Fighting,

We went down to the locker room and this was the scene: Guys like Krys Barch, Toby Petersen, Matt Niskanen, James Neal, Loui Eriksson… those were the ones remaining (wait, sorry, Sergei Zubov was in there, too). Now Marty Turco did come out, as did Darryl Sydor, but otherwise, most were cleared out by then.

Just don’t know what you can say at this point. There’s no building on positives with this group. They get behind and they fall apart. Coach Dave Tippett said this team needs its goaltender first and foremost:  “Everybody has to do their part. Certain players we expect a lot more from, and it starts in goal with marty. Right now with our lineup, we just have to have good goaltending to give ourselves a chance.”

Lemaire vs. Turco

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog,

“Turco pushed the net,” Lemaire said. “It’s the third time that Turco does that, just against us. He goes like he’s going to stumble, and he just lays on the post, that’s what he does. It’s a trick, but now they’ll know. Next time, they’ll watch.”...

When told that Lemaire said that historically speaking, Turco had a history of doing that, Turco replied:

“When he played, they had steel pegs in there, and the net wasn’t coming off, And I don’t know how many times he was in front of the net, anyway…historically speaking.”

What Happened To Dallas

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Welcome to the Stars, where the harder the team digs in, the deeper the hole gets.

At some point in the transition from Western Conference finalist to NHL doormat, the Stars probably got too cocky.

Management probably looked too hard at taking the next step and adding the piece that would “beat Detroit.”

Players probably believed too much in the hype that they were Stanley Cup contenders and felt the magic would instantly return once they hit the ice.

Coaches probably trusted the players too much and allowed them to skate through a lackadaisical preseason.

Morrow Shocked By Knee Injury

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog,

Brenden Morrow spoke to the media at the morning skate, and said he was stunned when he found out that an awkward fall in Thursday’s game would keep him out for six months with a torn ACL in his right knee.

“I’m a little bit shocked,” he said. “I don’t really feel that bad. I kind of expected a game or two, and the six months recovery kind of caught me off guard.

“I’m walking around here today and can’t really believe it, he added. “I can walk fine, how can’t I play?”

Nothing Here, Go There

via Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

As part of the budget crunch, we have cut back on our coverage of the NHL _ with the belief that you would rather us dedicate our space to coverage of the local team.

But in the interest of providing what we don’t, I thought I’d direct you to ESPN.com’s coverage of the NHL at the quarter pole. It’s very comprehensive, and they even have some Stars references.

Anyone else find this kind of strange, not sure if Mike is doing this with tongue-in-cheek.

Morrow Out With Torn ACL

FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the left wing Brenden Morrow is out indefinitely with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will require surgery. He is expected to miss up to six months. The club also recalled right wing Landon Wilson from Grand Rapids (AHL).

“We are obviously very disappointed to hear the news about Brenden’s knee,” said Co-General Manager Les Jackson. “As our captain, he will obviously be missed, but we have every assurance that he can and will come back from this injury at 100 percent. There is a lot of hockey left to be played this season, and we are confident our team will rally together and keep pushing.”

Name Those Stars

Will Smith met up with some Dallas Stars at the premiere of his movie Seven Pounds

Can you name all the Dallas Stars in this photo off the top of your head? To be honest, we—and a few other hockey people we asked—actually struggled for a few minutes trying to identify one of the guys in this picture.  (But we’re betting you’re sharper than we are…)
