Mike Heika briefly addresses what I occasionally wonder about: How does the two-headed beast that is the Dallas Star GM-ship go about doing business? Not that there’s really an answer. Heika reports that co-GM Brett Hull seems more interested in winning in the present, while co-GM Les Jackson is a little bit more interested in preserving the Stars’ future.
Obviously, as the trade deadline moves closer, there’s going to be a lot of rock-paper-scissor going on in Dallas.
Also, the Globe and Mail had a rather complicated piece on the NHL possibly returning to ESPN. It may or may not be impacted by NBC’s decision to renew its NHL package. I don’t know. It can’t be good for the NHL to switch networks every few seasons. I’m not sure, but I think I might have watched Toronto-Buffalo on the Food Network. Is that possible?
(Thanks to Watchdog for the tip).
Also, how do you celebrate ending a four-game losing streak? If you’re the St. Louis Blues, you announce you’re raising your ticket prices. The Blues had a two-game winning streak between the end of January and the start of February. I bet they wish they had thought to make the announcement then.
