Dallas Stars 2019-2020 Season Thread

Hot take I think Jordie Benn in place of Polak makes the team better.

 

Nevermind just realized Polak is a righty. Finding one of those D is like a left handed pitcher.

Man I've had tickets for tomorrow night about 9 rows up on the defensive side (1st and 3rd) of the glass near the blue line for the last month. I bet this shit gets cancelled. FML.

Out of curiosity, have you gotten a refund for these tickets?

btw, FSSW is showing all of the '99 Cup wins starting tonight with the first two wins against EDM. Kinda fun to watch again.

I'll probably watch some of the WCF, but the weird thing I remember about that team is that when they were playing really well, I didn't think, "Wow, these guys are great!", I thought, "Man, this team they're playing can't do anything right."  They just destroyed the opponent by suffocation.

WTF? No hockey on Abbott's list of pro sports that can apply to have games without spectators ... but basketball and football are ok?

I'm sure it was an oversight. Not sure how some of those others would be OK but not hockey.

I'm not sure I want to consider Stanley Cup playoffs with no fans in the arena. I think they might be better off just bagging the season and concentrating on starting again in October with the hope of having actual butts in seats in early 2021, if not the fall.

"it's not the same without fans so we should cancel the whole thing" may be the dumbest argument I've ever heard. For anything. 


Matt Duchene says it better than I did:

Bag it. Hit the reset button and start getting ready for 2020-21. I can wait until October.

new playoff format being voted on soon.  it's conference-based, instead of division-based.  Dallas gets a bye.  doesn't get screwed like under the other proposed system.

Quote

The NHL Players’ Association’s executive board is voting on a 24-team playoff proposal as a possible return to play format, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the vote was still ongoing. The results of the vote could be in as soon as Friday night.

Even if the executive board votes to approve the format, it doesn’t yet seal the deal for the NHL season resuming. The league and players union still need to negotiate other details, including health and safety protocols.

But the format is a substantial piece of the return to play puzzle.

Under the plan proposed by the joint NHL/NHLPA Return To Play Committee, the top four teams in each of the Eastern and Western Conferences would play each other for seeding while the remaining 16 teams face off in a best-of-five series play-in round to set the final 16 to compete for the Stanley Cup.

That would mean byes for Boston, Tampa Bay, Washington and Philadelphia in the East and defending champion St. Louis, Colorado, Vegas and Dallas in West. Pittsburgh, Carolina the New York Islanders and Rangers, Toronto, Columbus, Florida and Montreal would also make it in the East and Edmonton, Nashville, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Minnesota, Arizona and Chicago in the West.
