Good morning, Stars fans! Hopefully your Tuesday has started off the right way! If not, I hope it gets better! Quick note: It doesn’t look as though a random winner will be selected for the first trivia question released yesterday considering the post is still a good bit away from 150. But we’ll have to see.
Now on to the main story: I know I’ve said it a million times, but I’m gonna say it again…
In Jim Nill We Trust:
It started as a simple hashtag on Twitter, but it truly sets the story for the Stars success over the past year. Ever since Jim Nill walked into the Dallas Stars’ front office on April 28th, 2013, he was making sure the Stars were set back on the right path. Nill started out by hiring a washed up and deemed worthless coach in Lindy Ruff, to which many responded hateful and uncertain. Then he traded for a partying and drunken Tyler Seguin in exchange for Loui Eriksson, to which even more put-downs and hopelessness was received.
But where did the Stars go? UP. The Stars had a fantastic year that saw a new dynamic duo established, an energetic roster full of young kids, and a postseason berth for the first time in six years. But Jim Nill is not planning on a berth and first round exit this coming year. Now Nill has added a sharpshooter and veteran leader in Jason Spezza and another young piece to the puzzle in Ales Hemsky, along with a helpful and proven backup goalie in Anders Lindback. Nill is simply “just getting started”. He will look to continue on a successful path and prove to everyone that the Dallas Stars are the NEW team to beat.
The Stars are just getting started, and Nill is the cause of this. Who’s ready for more? Who’s ready for the Cup contention? In Jim Nill We Trust, just to get your morning started off with a little pep.
