Mr. Councilman, I'd like to make a motion. I motion the Dallas Stars only be allowed to play Canadian teams in the 2015-2016 season. For supporting evidence of this motion, see exhibit A and exhibit B. Two short-handed empty net goals don't just happen every day. We should give the people what they want by letting the Stars beat Canadian teams with the aplomb we've seen over the last few years. Texans support Dallas beating Canada!
In related matters, Mr. Councilman, I'd like to vocalize once more and let the record show that John Klingberg was absolutely robbed of a Calder nomination. So noted.
Every month, I walk away thinking "THIS was the best month of the year." I really don't know which month it really is on the goal-scoring front that would be the best, but January was quite fun with that 7-1 beatdown of the Minnesota Wild and then that 6-3 shellacking of Chicago on their home ice. Really, January was quite fun. Which goal is your personal favorite?
