Weekly Picture Fantastic

by Kristine

Welcome to the WPF! This week we’re looking at Halloween weekend up until the Flames game last night.


October 30 was Coach Crow’s 1000th NHL game coached, and the Stars honored him before the puck drop.


We finally got Lehts and Mo back November 4th against the Flames.


I’m not sure why Morrow has a black eye when the last time he fought was… last season after Brown nailed Ribs into the boards?


The most exciting new line we have this season – Swedes and Sudsy.


I have a new love of the Ice Girls for getting our Stars to pose with their pompoms. You can see more Stars with poms here.

Introducing the Weekly Picture Fantastic

by Kristine

Welcome to the trial run of a new feature here at SHR, the Weekly Picture Fantastic (WPF if that makes it easier for you). Every Wednesday I’ll be selecting my five favorite images of the previous week from various sources, including Flickr, NHL.com, and the new galleries at Andrew’s. The only thing they’ll have in common is that they’ll be Stars-related. Pictures of good plays, funny faces, goal celebrations, the starting line – it’s all fair game.

Since there’s been a lot going on the last few weeks, this first WPF has a few more than five pictures. I went all the way back to pre-season for the first few images…

Alex Auld - Sept 24, 2009 vs COL
Alex Auld got his first start in net for the Stars on September 24 vs Colorado. He looked very positionally sound.

Marty Turco - Sept 16, 2009 vs TBL
…Whereas Turco seems to have already forgotten where his net actually is.

Loui Eriksson, James Neal, Matt Niskanen - Sept 16, 2009 vs TBL
Meet three guys the rest of the league is going to be very scared of someday. Yes, even Nisky.

Jamie Benn, Darryl Sydor - Sept 19, 2009 at STL
Here we have another exciting young guy, Jamie Benn, saving former Star Darryl Sydor from a spider.

Brad Richards - Sept 24, 2009 vs COL
Brad Richards is back with a healthy body, full head of hair, and intense stare.

Mike Ribeiro - October 3, 2009 vs NSH
Finally, the real season began. I’m happy about that for many reasons, one of which is that I can go back to watching Ribs skate around looking like this during warm-up.

Matt Niskanen - October 3, 2009 vs NSH
Niskanen has looked very confident and competent so far this season. His training wheels may finally be coming off for good.

Trevor Daley, Karlis Skrastins, Brenden Morrow, Mike Ribeiro, Jamie Benn - October 6, 2009 at EDM
Our beloved Captain and his faithful sidekick are back, this time with a secret weapon: one Mr. Holy Cow Jamie Benn.

That does it for this week’s WPF. Let us know what you think of this feature in the comments; if you like it, we’ll let it stick around for the whole season.
