The Dallas Stars And Their Underdog Tag

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

The wonderful thing about the story the Dallas Stars are writing during this depressing time, making it to the Stanley Cup Final against all odds, is the number of people they appear to be making happy.

And that’s really remarkable here in Hub City, considering the number of occasions the Stars eliminated Edmonton in those sensational playoff series a couple of decades ago.

Whether it’s individually or collectively, the Dallas Stars are an easy team to embrace and a fun team to follow.

Everybody loves an underdog and they are the ultimate underdog, picked by most to lose every series they’ve played — as will quite probably be the case with the next one, too.

For one thing, there are few teams to ever bring hockey statisticians such joy.

Monday after the Stars sealed the deal to force the Vegas Golden Knights to check out of the bubble, the fun facts were flying about this Dallas team that was receiving the Rodney Dangerfield get-no-respect treatment since they showed up.
