Daily Dasherboard - Friday November 4 2011


Yesterday we peered at some Buffalo Sabres recaps, as well as some interesting views around the Eastern Conference.  Today, we head out West to find out what is happening with the “other” conference. 

The Colorado Avalanche have a Stanley Cup to their tribute.  Out of 30 NHL franchises (active) there are 13 that have never won a championship.  Without looking how many can you name?  Check your answers here with Mile High Sticking.

Traveling over to see whats happening with one of the worst teams in the NHL right now, and we see another women’s perspective on the Movember movement. 

 How about an up and close look with Stephane Robidas of the Dallas Stars?  Get inside with the Stars defensemen along with Blackout Dallas.   

Not that many people are complaining, but the Detroit Red Wings are laying an egg this year compared to their air of dominance since, oh just about forever.  I don’t know if you can compare them to the other greatest hockey team in the world that wore red and white, but they were damn close and picking a roster of NHL players that would dominate this league for many many years.  Take a look at the top three worst seasons in Detroit history with Octopus Thrower.

 We all know Lindy can be a master juggler when it comes to his lines.  Sometimes his player swapping works, other times it blows up on him.  Phoenix has been the quiet underdog (no pun intended) under the watchful eye of Dave Tippett the past several seasons.  His new line combinations seem to be keeping the Desert Dogs on the right path.   

Is there a goalie curse in St. Louis?  I sure have a goalie curse, picked up Ryan Miller and Jaroslav Halak in my fantasy league this year.  Needless to say they have been doing very little to help my stats out – or their respective teams.
