Dallas made waves this offseason by finally realizing a two headed monster at GM doesn't work, let alone giving Brett Hull any sort of responsibility. That was a disaster waiting to happen. Oh, you say last season was a disaster? I'd agree. Way to go Brett! NO GOAL!
Ok, sorry. I'm over it, I swear. Now since Les Jackson and Brett Hull were "reassigned," Joe Nieuwendyk took over. His first prey? Jonas Gustavsson, the Monster, or so I hear he's called. He failed, as Gustavsson picked the Leafs and playing time over tutelage behind Marty Turco.
Overall though, the Stars moved laterally, but with Zubov still wallowing as a UFA, they could potentially lose their PP quarterback, which could be a blow. Bringing in Skrastins will be good for a shot blocking and consistency standpoint, but none of the other additions really scream game-changer now do they.
Hopefully Brendan Morrow healed from that ACL injury, the collective personae of the Stars organization has recovered from the onslaught of Sean Avery, and Marty Turco remembered how to play goalie, then everything will be just peachy in Dallas.
