  3. Stars' playoff hopes are now over

    Richard Durrett

    Well, last night's San Jose-Colorado game ended any playoff dreams for the Stars (though they really ended with a tough start to the post Olympic-break, didn't they)? Colorado's win means that at least eight teams will have a better record than th...

  4. Stars GM: 'We need to get 5 of 6 at home'

    Richard Durrett

    Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk knows how critical the next six-game homestand is for his team. And because they've won just one of the five games since the Olympic break, it's going to take a special stint at home to keep playoff hopes alive. T...

  5. Does this win alter the Stars' outlook?

    Richard Durrett

    It might. After a horrible start to the post-Olympic break, the Stars found a way to win a game no one thought they could in Washington on Monday. The way they won it might be critical too. The Stars scored three third-period goals and then won it...

  6. Should Marty Turco start Monday?

    Richard Durrett

    I think so. We all know the goaltending since the Olympic break has not been good as the Stars have given up 17 goals in three games. But at this point, I think Marty Turco gives this team a better shot to win Monday's game in Washington (despite ...

  7. Some thoughts on Stars' 6-1 loss

    Richard Durrett

  9. Wow, that was sure fun to watch

    Richard Durrett will have all the coverage from USA-Canada for you, but from a viewing perspective, it doesn't get much better than that in the Olympics, does it? It may have just been a preliminary game, but seeing Team Canada play against the U.S. in V...

  13. Where will Stars be in standings at break?

    Richard Durrett

  15. Which Stars players are on "no-trade" list?

    Richard Durrett

    Should the Stars even have a "no-trade" list? I know some fans feel like if this team doesn't really make a statement in the next three games and then struggles after the Olympic break, that no player should be "untouchable." I disagree. There are...
