With all the GREAT news this off-season it might be easy for a Stars fan to get caught up in the new, and potentially forget the old — but how could we forget about the greatest line-mates in all of hockey? Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are two of our young leaders on this awesome team and last year they showed just how awesome they can be! So, show your love and your Benneguin’s pride!
In March of 2014 we faithful saw Modano’s number hung in the rafter during a tear-filled retirement ceremony – not a dry eye in the house! There are those of us, though who believe it was only the start to what this organization owes to it’s history. On the heels of hearing Bob Sturm talking about Zubov deserving the rafters and ESPN talking about him deserving the Hall of Fame, we want you to have a way to show your support and ask the organization to make it right – let’s get Zubov and Lehtinen up in the rafters, LEHTS #MAKEITRIGHT!
This morning, I flash back to that sad April day,
When the Anaheim Ducks abruptly ended our play.
The Stars were up 4-2 and things were looking fine…
Only 2 minutes left, everyone was having a great time!
But as fate would have it, the Ducks would score twice more,
Sending us to overtime…..and then once more they scored.
Out of the Playoffs, we were over and done.
That being said, that round one sure was fun.
Now it is a new season, some things have greatly changed,
New players have come but the sting of defeat remains.
I expect for the fans to be rowdy and loud.
Our boys still have reasons to be proud!
We will be on the lookout for dirty plays tonight,
I expect there will probably be at least one fight.
Corey Perry should wear earplugs to drown out the jeers,
And certainly Getzlaff, Smith-Perry & Maroon won’t get cheers.
The goal of the game is to play smart and be quick,
It’s Halloween, I want treats and no tricks!
The Ducks lost last night, I hope they are tired.
Ours fans will be loud and the crowd will be wired!
This season is still new, so I think we are in luck,
I don’t want any Ducks in the way of our pucks.
Our offense is solid, the defense needs to step up.
We must get closer to lifting the Stanley Cup!
Opening day is finally here!
Put on your jersey and grab a beer!
The summer was a long but busy one,
Time to test what Jim Nill has done.
The pieces of our puzzle appear to fit just fine, I believe we have four
Can’t wait to see the magic of Seguin & Benn, And I’m expecting a great year for
With the awesome addition of Hemsky and Spezza, Our opponents should be fearful!
Yep, you betcha!
Finally got Dillon and Eakin signed,
I really think our Stars are aligned!
I can’t say enough about Fiddler and Roussel.
They give our team a spark, I hope they both do well.
Kari struggled a bit in the pre-season,
But worry? Right now I have no reason.
We fans are super excited and hyped up!
Tonight begins our quest for the Stanley Cup!
