A Different Angle On The Dallas Stars

from Daryl Reaugh of Razor With An Edge,

At this time of year everybody has a take on the upcoming season.

The general consensus from pundits, scribes, “insiders” and “experts” is that the Stars will be a bubble team (again). And that despite the changes made in Big D since the conclusion of last season; they will again be a non-playoff club in the West.

Fair? Accurate? Safe guess? Misguided hooey?

Well how about taking three different angles of evaluation of this team; Pessimism. Realism. Optimism:

The Dour Perception: (Negative Nelly)

The defense isn’t big enough or good enough.

40-somethings Whitney and Gonchar are slowing down and fading in effectiveness.
