Tonight is the Dallas Stars Casino Night, and it's going to the first one I'm attending, despite being a season ticket holder for the last 5 years or so. It seems like it's a great event, yet there are scant details about it online. A couple years back there was a post reviewing it, but not one last year. I'm wondering if anyone from defending big d will be in attendance tonight. If so, I'd like to swing by and say hello.
I have to say with the massive change that the team has had over the last couple of years, I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the new faces. Steve Ott, for one, was well known for being a very approachable guy off the ice, and I'm wondering about who will lead the new Stars in the friendly and fun categories.
This post is meant as much for an open invitation to the community as it is a statement. I'd love to take the chance to give back to the community that takes hockey even more seriously than I do, and that's saying something. Are there any pictures that you guys would like to see from this evening? Any burning questions than can causally be asked over a game of blackjack? I'm happy to do what I can to bring some data back, even if it's not advanced stats.
Obviously I'll follow up tomorrow with a rundown and some photos of the action. Leave your requests in the comments and I'll do my best to oblige.
