I'm really liking our team this year. Getting a lot of enjoyment in how we play. Don't know how well it will translate to the standings at the end of the year because there just is no top-notch offensive talent on the roster, but the D is very good, Bob seems like he found a franchise where he fits, and there seems like there will be tons of effort and lots of heart. Good stuff, overall.
Hockey fan NooB here with a question about the Stars since that is who I started following when I moved to Texas just before the start of last season. I am reading that they are pretty close to finally signing Jamie Benn. My question is how often is it that an NHL team doesnt have one of their best players signed before the start of the regular season? Does this occasionally happen in hockey or is this a pretty rare occurance that a team's possible best player isnt signed by the first regular season game?
In comparison with the NFL: There are hold outs or unsigned players every season and sometimes that player will sit out training camp and some preseason games; however, they'll typically work out the contract issue & sign before the regular season actually starts.

Colaiacovo is made of glass. He was hurt multiple times a year every year he was in St Louis. Some of its was just bad luck but some of it is him just being a big baby. I know the Wings are thin on the blue line but not sure Cola was the answer.
