"Happy Thursday. The team is here in Texas. For fans of the Stars, it's tough hearing the name "James Neal" around the rink. For some, it means another questionable move by former GM Joe Nieuwendyk. For others, it means another prized forward left Dallas too early. And for one defenseman, it means cowering in the corner all alone listening to Simple Plan on repeat." -HJN
