Everything Is Going Wrong For The Dallas Stars

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

It was another failed test, and one that Ruff will have to study intensely. Because the time for gut checks and resets is quickly slipping away.

“I’m really disappointed,” Ruff said. “You have to work for what you get. The worse you play in your own end, the less you get. I thought our running around allowed them to create more zone time.”

more on the 5-2 loss to Winnipeg last night.

Plays like these by Ryan Garbutt certainly don't help..



Below, even the video operator for the Stars should re-think about the graphics they display...

Two slew-foot incidents in one game is pretty amazing, but from the same player in the same game? This guy needs to go away for a few games.

Dallas is a train wreck.  They have so much offensive power, yet the D is horrible and the goaltending is bad.  They can’t score enough to make up for awful mistakes by the D.  Stupid slewfoots and an awful PP don’t help.

Could Lindy Ruff’s days be numbered?

Ruff is a very good coach (with little to show for it) and Nill is the GM Detroit deserves. Dallas really should be much, much better.
