Brenden Morrow Out 6 Months With a Torn ACL

You know, I've been predicted every season for the past 6 seasons that the Stars were going to falter, and every season they've made me look like a jackass. This season I finally don't predict a letdown and this looks like the season they finally falter. Just thought you'd like to know how this is affecting me personally.

I admit- that was my first thought too. I picked them to miss the playoffs last year, and buckled like a belt this year. I only care about Morrow insofar as it affects me. It's the American Way.

Yeah, I've been waiting for Dallas in the Pacific basement for years and years.

I'm even torn on the Ducks game tonight. Should the Blues win, that would put the Stars in 15th place in the west.

Well, let's go to OT and see what happens. :)

Dare I say that this opens the door ever slow slightly for a Kings playoff run? No, I daren't.

Earl Sleek said...

It might not be a bad year to get slightly optimistic, Rudy. I mean, we're essentially a quarter into the season, and who looks like a lock for the western playoffs?

San Jose, Detroit, with probablys from Chicago, Minnesota, and Vancouver. Point is, it's not as many "lock" teams as usual.

The last several years, there's been maybe two or three playoff spots to fight for. This year it may be up to five, and I'm not ruling anybody out.

Not even these Morrow-less Stars.

Ducks are probably 3-4 years behind the Stars. Sharks 4-5. Let it be so!

I'm not a Dallas fan but I'm a big Morrow fan. Too bad.
Couldn't happen to Avery, could it?
I guess the Spleen was enough punishment from the gods.

Ducks are probably 3-4 years behind the Stars. Sharks 4-5.

So what does that make the Kings, 20 years behind?

RudyKelly said...

I believe we are 2-3 years ahead in this scenario. The Coyotes are in the present, which is kind of sad.

Earl Sleek said...

I guess the really sad thing about the Stars this year is their start feels very similar to the start Anaheim had last year. Injuries and a lot of sloppy play from all positions.

It's like a cup hangover without, you know, the cup. It'd be tragic if it weren't so awesome.

Nut said...

no we are zero years behind, i.e. behind right now.

Yeah, we all wish our rivals have so much more success than our own team. I feel your pain, Rudy.

season FAIL!

I understand why you parallel it to the Ducks woes last year, but I think the Stars mirror the other Dallas teams closer. This reminds me of the Mavericks' season last year: a miserable clusterfuck that will eventually get its coach fired.

Too bad Dave Tippett doesn't have an awesome cajun accent.

haha me too. I thought the dallas stars would suck every year, but they dont. I think the signing of Avery sure screwed them over. Remember modano's comments on ott and avery? the team is on the decline and theyre screwed without morrow. Time to rebuild!! my thoughts http://jib-sports-culture.blogspot.com/2008/11/morrow-out-for-season-stars-are-done.html
