    Offense
    Benn Seguin Radulov
    Nichushkin Spezza Ritchie
    Dickinson Faksa Pitlick
    Janmark Shore Comeau

    Defense
    Lindell Klingberg
    Heiskanen Carrick
    Methot Honka

    Goalie
    Khudobin

    Could be a tough one. Ducks are off to a good start (3-0-1).

    Hesikanen - Carrick is an interesting combo. Not sure if it's interesting "good" but we'll see.

    Second line maybe should start skating now to get a head start.

    Working tonight. I'll probably tune into TheTicket during my shift and re-watch the game later

    I was fairy confident that the Stars would get blasted last game; they had to get brought back to reality. However, I think this game is more important and will set the tone for the first 10 to 20 games overall. How they respond to last game against an unexpectedly tough Ducks team will IMHO either set them up for a win streak early on or have them (and fans) facing doubts. In other words, it’s a sneaky important game. My guess: they play their most complete game of the season and trash the Ducks 6-1.

    Would be tough to top that performance against the Jets...which was arguably their best game in 2 years..but I'd love to see them destroy the Ducks like that.

    Our record shouldn't fool you. If we had an average goaltender, we would easily be 0-4. Gibson is the only reason we have any points.

    Agreed, overall, but best way to top that performance is two things: true depth scoring and Miro’s first NHL goal. :)

    Maybe, but wins are wins, am I right? A hot goalie could mean a brick wall vs. the Stars tonight.

    You're right, and we also play tomorrow, so you might get lucky and face Miller tonight.

    I still can’t believe how good that kid is. I never watched him play, even on TV, and kept thinking to myself, “Surely an 18/19 year old defenseman can’t be THAT good, can he?” I honestly thought the hype was desperation on the part of Stars management and fandom... until opening night (and since). Unbelievable. He skated and passed so effortlessly, with other young players around him (understandably) still looking a bit like deer-in-the-headlights. I just wonder what we will be saying at the end of the season.

    Didn’t Miller stonewall the Stars last year?

    Idk cause when fatigue sets in and all this travel starts happening and the grind of the regular season gets at its peak it will be tough on all rookies. We have to remember also that he still hasn't played a regular season road game yet either so theres that too.

    He doesn't get nervous though it appears and i expect him to be fine but he will have his low points for sure imo

    Good points. No one has a perfect rookie season, for sure. That is, except for generational player types like McDavid and Crosby, I guess. Ha!

    I think I'm gonna get a Stars jersey with "Plug" stitched on, with the number 0.
