Why Crawford is Not Sean Avery (June 11, 2009)
“Stars fans, remember that feeling you got last summer? First the news leaked… Sean Avery, coming to Dallas? Then, it became official. There was hesitation. It just looked like a bad idea. It felt like a bad idea. Then the press conference. Is he really wearing that? Is this what we’re getting into? You tried to have faith in your GMs, to reserve judgement.”

Depiction: Remembering 08-09 (May 9, 2009)
“Kristine and I took some time to gather a collection of our favorite pictures from what is otherwise a fairly forgetful season. As the second round of the playoffs gets do-or-die (go Caps! go Canes!), we’re going to take a moment to celebrate all the Stars’ good times that got buried beneath the shame of the season’s less-than-desirable end.”

Chemistry by the Numbers (March 9, 2009)
“I decided to set up a numbers system and figure out exactly who benefits from who on the Stars’ team. For example, getting a primary assist on someone’s goal gets both players more points for each other than secondary assists do. I also wanted to see how players’ primary/secondary assist ratios evened out, and the team’s win % when that player scores at least 1 point.”

Trade Deadline Wrapped Up (March 4, 2009)
“The NHL trade deadline came and went this afternoon, with the Dallas Stars partaking in no actual trades. However, the rest of the league was dealing their best in an attempt to improve their team for the future (whether that means this season’s playoffs or the seasons ahead). From the moves leading up to today from the last trades to squeak past the deadline, we’ve got it all here, and summarized neatly by team. ”

When All Else Fails, Juggle Lines (February 12, 2009)
A humorous look, complete with pictures and a story, at Tippet’s line changing during the February 11 game vs Phoenix.

Mr. Clever Clown Holds a Meeting (February 8, 2009 )
“It was a typical morning in Calgary, and Mr. Clever Clown and his teammates were preparing for their hockey game that night. Some sort of inspiration struck Mr. Clever Clown and he called over cameras and reporters and media and press until their attention was all his.”

SHR +/- Midseason Report (Jan 17, 2009)
“Now that the half-way mark of the season (the Monday game vs Detroit) has passed, and the SHR +/- has been updated to it, I thought it might be interesting to take a look back at some trends and numbers.”

Sidney Crosby is a Tool: SHR!’s View of the NHL (Nov 26, 2008)
“With the Dallas Stars slumped in a 6-10-4 hole at the bottom of the league, we at SHR! felt it was time to stop being so introspective. We’ve picked, prodded, and yelled at everyone from the players to the owner, and now it’s time to move on (at least until the next game). Team bias aside, here’s how we feel about some other players across the league this season.”

Let’s Talk Stars (Nov 3, 2008)
“With all the controversy surrounding our beloved but struggling Stars, we at SHR felt it was time to open an outlet for intelligent debate. (If you’ve visited the official boards, you know that “intelligent” is a key word here. I guess “debate” would be too. This isn’t for taking petty shots or thoughtless griping.)”

2009 Calendar (Oct 28, 2008 )
A tounge-in-cheek list of ideas for the 2009 calendar.

How to Hurt Turco vs How to Help Turco (Oct 23, 2008)
“Today we’ll focus on something our D-guys seem to have a lot of problems with: helping Turco instead of hurting him. Since there’s nothing like a visual reference, let’s start out with a picture of #28, Mark Fistric.”
