Don't even need to skate by with an electoral college win.

That's based entirely on my twins being at OU this year.

I would love for McKenna to get a job as a TV analyst. Dude’s great at conveying information.

I'd rather keep Dobby than Bishop. Bishop is often hurt.

Ehh Bishop is pretty good. Dobby is not a starter, he has caught magic in a bottle for these few weeks, which happens sometimes. But Dobby is probably going to get more on the open market than we’re currently paying Bishop. The prudent decision is to keep Bishop.

Even with load management and maintenance days, Bishop still breaks down a lot. Khudobin has never been a starter.

With either guy, I'd expect Oettinger to see 30+ starts beginning as early as next season.

Even with Khudobin’s playoff heroics, at 34 do you really think he’ll get a 5 million dollar contract? There are also a few good UFA goalies Holtby, Lehner, Markstrom, plus Kuemper is reported to be available. All younger than 34. He’s definitely going to be in demand, but I think the Stars still have a shot at signing him. Add in the flat cap and I feel like many teams are gonna be more prudent with their dollar this year. Ha ha I know.

I keep thinking the flat cap, depressed revenue streams and general uncertainty are going to severely impact free agency deals. But then I see some of the contracts which have been signed or the asks from folks like Pietrangelo and wonder if I'm totally off base.

For teams, this may be the best off-season to have limited money to spend because this is not a good UFA year for forwards, so after Hall and Hoffman get overpaid, there isn't much else to fight over.

TSN article about Dallas' D trying to survive TB, including a buncha those fancy shot stats, I don't fully understand.
Dallas has proven this postseason that they can win in a variety of ways. The Stars proved capable in a high-flying, up-tempo second-round series against an Avalanche team with incredible offensive firepower. The Stars then faced a completely different animal in the Western Conference final. Vegas expectedly owned the puck all series long, hemming the Stars into the defensive zone on a regular basis. There, the Stars leaned on quality interior defence and white-hot goaltending from to advance.

Tampa Bay poses a different challenge. They have the individual shooting talent at the top of their lineup that compares well with the likes of Colorado, but they also can possess the puck for extended periods like Vegas. That’s why the Lightning have been regarded as the most talented team in the league for a few years now, and it’s tested Stars head coach Rick Bowness.

Khudobin has been given a starter's workload in the past and failed badly. He's an excellent backup but not "the guy."

Any chance for Hintz or Faksa to come back next game? Feel like we are on fumes and could use fresh legs.

Holy crap, I could never make this kind of move. I'd just run into the other dude or, if I tried this, I'd break both my ankles.

I'm thinking Faska broke his hand???

I remember him hurting his hand in game 3 of WCF. He finished the game but obviously hasn't been seen since.

Yeah, Faksa is probably done. No clue about Hintz or Comeau.

Comeau appeared to hurt his shoulder. With three games out now, I'm not too hopeful.
