They traded for Playoff Warhorse and overall general pain in the ass Claude Lemieux - could be a good move for Dallas - they seem to acquire character players these days even faster than the NY Rangers of the Neil Smith Era

Claude Lemieux wore out his usefulness a while ago.

If by "character player" you mean "cheap shot artist", then I whole heartedly agree.

Good point - I forgot to put "character player" in quotes - he is a poor man's Esa Tikkanen

I'm by no means a Claude Lemieux apologist, but I'll be damned if the guy doesn't score 20 points virtually EVERY postseason.

Yes, true but we {Dallas} got him for virtually nothing. Scott Pellerin was a constant scratch. Head Coach Dave Tippit forgot his name.

I am not sure Claude has done anything worth while since the Red Wing's series and Chris Draper.

Good pick up, but I still think they are going to need more then that, to get past the beast of the east!

Your OTTAWA SENATORS!

All the Dallas Stars have to do to get past Ottawa is throw money near their goalie and when he goes to pick it up, shoot the puck into the goal.

Claude Lemieux is one of those guys who brings "intangibles." Most people just think he's good at getting both his team and the opponent good and riled up (see Draper, Kris and Red Wings, Detroit). But he's 7th all-time in playoff scoring. And only Gretzky and Hull have more game-winners in the playoffs. That's a serious stat; figure that puts him ahead of guys like Maurice Richard, Mario Lemieux, Bobby Hull, Guy Lafleur, Bobby Orr, and other "proven playoff performers."

Tikkanen was a genius at getting under skins, but he never produced in the clutch like Lemieux (gifted player, yes; power playoff performer, no). One thing Tik did better than Lemieux was get under skins without necessarily resorting to cheapshots.

Dallas actually has another player who could be a first-class NHL shit-disturber -- John Sim is "in the system" although he actually has a ring from playing with the Cup-winning Stars of a few years ago. When I played against him he was probably the most effective tormenter I'd ever seen except possibly his older brother (who was not quite as talented and, thus, not in the NHL).

::sigh:: Well, it's not like I didn't totally expect this. I predicted Sens in 5, and that's what I got. Congratulations, Ottawa fans.
