It's 2014. After a phenomenal game against the Los Angeles Kings on New Years Eve, it appeared as if the Stars had things figured out. The flu bug that was running rampant in the room was starting to clear itself out and defensemen Trevor Daley and Sergei Gonchar were on the mend and set to return from their respective injuries. What could possibly go wrong?
Famous last words.
Dallas has lost 4 games in a row, being outscored in that timeframe 19-8. They only netted 50% of the possible 10 points during their 5-game home stand. They went from being one point out of the final playoff position to trailing Minnesota for the final wild card spot by 6 points.
Last night after falling to the New Jersey Devils 1-0, many of you had some strong opinions regarding the team:
Man, the Stars are trash. Trash, trash, trash. Can't get into the opposition's zone to save their lives. God bless...— Hunter_Maki (@Hunter_Maki) January 10, 2014
@Stars_Insider The team just sucks all around— Eric T. Ready (@eric_ready) January 10, 2014
Then you've got people who are clueless and unable to move on from the new jerseys:
These Dallas Stars uniforms are awful.— Feesh (@uffeesh) January 10, 2014
I still don't like these Dallas Stars' new jerseys/logo— Danica (@Jibbs_x) January 10, 2014
