The lockout sure knows how to mess up a plan, doesn't it? The season felt like it had just ended when we started talking draft and free agency. Then Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill remade the roster in a span of a few days with some big trades and acquisitions. It's been a bit of a whirlwind since the end of the season. Now that the proverbial dust has settled and we hit the duldroms of the hot summer days of August, we take a look back at the season and close out what was by picking the plays of the shortened season. Today, we look at the goal of the year.You can see the hit of the year here. You can see the save of the year here.
Goals of the year...the best part of the season highlights. We can relive the celebrations and the glory of the boys in
black soon-to-be-victory-green beating some of the best goaltenders in the league. Not a bad way to end the work week.
What is your goal of the year? There's some good ones to choose from...this one won't be easy.
