    We've seen the Rangers in the World Series and the Mavs win the NBA Finals, and on Tuesday I was reminded just how great a Stanley Cup run can be when former Stars' goalie Ed Belfour and current GM Joe Nieuwendyk were elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. They'll officially be in ... More >>

    Stars Keep Brad Richards, and their Playoff Hopes

    ​The Dallas Stars have been falling, from the top of the NHL's Western Conference down to eighth place. But as yesterday's trade deadline came and went without any deals, the message is clear: The Stars aren't giving up. It's not only a bold move. It's the right move. Leading scorer and ... More >>

    Ten Sports Items From Yesterday That, In My Humble Opinion, Are Worth a Look-See

    What's Favre's legacy? You tell me.​10. Christmas came early for Mavs fans, as Dallas ended the Heat's 12-game winning streak with an entertaining 98-96 victory last night in Miami. My wrap-up is forthcoming, but until then, Wilonsky over at Unfair Park showed us the team's official Christmas gift ... More >>

    Falling Stars

    ​The Dallas Stars cleared out their lockers yesterday. They long ago vacated our minds. Once upon a time Stars games were Dallas' see-and-be-scene. The hockey team won. The bold and beautiful watched. Even as recently as two springs ago we were staying up late and digging in hard for Dallas' ... More >>

    Dallas' Fantasy Roster

    No. 12 in your football program ... No. 12 on our fantasy roster.​When I say No. 22, who comes to mind? Do you immediately think of the Dallas Cowboys' all-time best runner? Or their all-time best rusher? Or perhaps instead the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of the Dallas Mav ... More >>

    The Dallas Stars: Rest In Pieces

    Give the Dallas Stars credit for being spunky and resilient and stubbornly fun to watch. But the season's over, right? To me it ended Saturday in San Jose. Not just with the 5-2 loss to the Sharks, but more so with another major injury. This one to Brad Richards, who broke his left hand while hurryi ... More >>

    Premature Evacuation

    One more time for all the old times. I was wrong. And, perhaps for one last night, the Dallas Stars were right on. Stars 3, Red Wings 1 needed its share of luck. Detroit hit a post early and had a goal disallowed via a horrible call. But give Dallas credit. The Stars played last night’s G ... More >>
