The Stars got things cranked up today (well, sort of, in between all the photos, physicals and such) in Frisco. It wasn't the usual organized sessions we'll see from here on out, but nevertheless all the big names were out there. And there was a line that certainly makes you want to say, "Hmm..."
It was Brad Richards centering a line with Mike Modano and Sean Avery on the wings. Like I said, "Hmmm..." Yes, it was just Day 1. But this is a combo that the Stars may be working with for a bit to see where it goes. The potential is there, certainly. For Modano, it's leg-saving and, as he's said before, he doesn't have nearly the responsibilities out there as he does smack-dab in the middle. I'm kind of liking the idea, myself.
Oh, here were some of the other combos:
Ott-Lundqvist-Eriksson (I really like this one, too; big fan of Lundy and Eriksson together from last postseason)
So food for thought, kids. Whaddya think?
