Hey, you Dallas Stars, WTF was that on “Guarantee Night”?!
What’s that? Dan Ellis was a fort in the opener and an Earl Grey tea bag last night. All right, I’ll take that as a legit excuse. And Jason Arnott, he lost the ceremonial face-off to Morrow yet never seemed overly eager to get the puck back much after that. Shea Weber – did he play?
Yes, Nashville was pop-gun frightening in Opening Night 2.0 but credit those Stars who had their boot on the trachea of the Preds immediately and when they did lift it for a moment, Marty Turco was there putting in his best night in net in recent memory.
As far as nights to provide free tickets because you shot your mouth off prior to the season opener and lost big financially because you guaranteed the home squad would crush the lesser opponent or you would furnish all in attendance tix to another game while targeting this weirdo double-dip of Predators at Stars for the first couple home games of the season – well, I got my money’s worth.
Thank-you DStars for putting on a show for the ticket sales/marketing arm of the franchise, and your welcome fans that chose to crush my cash reserves by collecting on one very misguided guarantee.
(And by the way, it’s 214-GO-STARS not 555-HEY-RAZOR if you want to sample the product again – on your own dime.)
