    Seems like every season there's a Stars game that is either postponed or played in front of a VERY small group of fans, due to some (relatively) bad winter weather in the area.

    You'd think over time that the powers that be would learn to prepare for the next one, y'know?

    Maybe this is the straw that broke the camel's back.

    The Saturday game of Tampa @ Dallas is postponed as well. Why the league couldn't merely flip things to have Tampa host the Stars for these games is a mystery.

    Is this real? The games haven’t even changed on the nhl website?

    Edit: Nevermind, searched it up

    I can’t even imagine trying to juggle all the postponements and makeup games. . What a shitshow

    When this happened 10 years ago in El Paso, they spent the money to winterize power plants. But El Paso is not part of ERCOT and they didn't have any electrical generation problems this year.

    Texas, via ERCOT, is specifically avoiding complying with US Federal laws and this is the result.

    It hit -10 F (-23 C) for a few nights in Milwaukee recently. We were below freezing temps continuously for 2 straight weeks. We had no power problems at all. We did have problems with finding places to put all of the snow that we received. The snow is piled up waist high here and down in Chicago. The lawns have 2 feet of snow, about as much as I can remember.

    It was colder by Watertown, about 50 miles away, -17 F (-27 C) or so. For people from warmer climates, that temperature leads to frostbite in 10 minutes for any exposed skin.

    Postponing hockey games in Dallas to conserve electrical power was the right thing to do. Not winterizing at least some of the power producing equipment was the wrong thing to do.

    Insane that the North division has 4 teams with at least 20 games played while the other 3 are at 17,18,19 games played.

    honestly, will the US divisions get to 56 games played?

    I really do feel like the NHL is using a coin to decide whether to postpone games or not.

    Last week, Nosek got pulled off the ice and was put into covid protocol, yet the NHL didn't cancel the next game.

    One Sharks player goes into protocol and tomorrows game gets postponed.

    The nhl makes no f***ing sense with this crap.

    They use the same wheel that decides suspensions.

    The state of texas removed themselves from the national grid in the US. Also they don't adhere to national regulations in turn because they aren't apart of the national grid. One of the regulations they would have had to adhere to was building a grid that could survive extreme cold temperatures. So there are 3 fundamental problems in Texas.

    1) Not a part of the national grid, so when power shortages come, they can't be supplied more easily.
    2) A system not built for the cold because there are no national regulations adhered to. Texas made rules get texas made results.
    3) Currently the Great State of Texas is run by a Good Ol', Canadian born, Cuban by descent, Texan boy who has the mental capacity of an ant. The worst part is that the State of Texas won't learn anything from this tragedy and Elect Ted Cruz again.

    So while people are dying, freezing, starving, Ted Cruz goes to Mexico blames his kids, and some citizens go on social media to burn snow to show it's not melting calling it fake snow and not real snow.
