Thursday Morning Cupcheck - Picking Fights on Twitter, Eric Godard Edition
Looks like there will be one and/or two sheriffs in town.
Good morning, hockey fans! Last week we huddled together to survive the inevitable Bradocalypse; this week, the Dallas Stars rocked the hockey world with a single signing. I'm talking, of course, of the acquisition of Eric Godard.
Certainly, Godard is the kind of true heavyweight the Stars have not seen since Aaron Downey left; just as certainly, Godard will not play more than 20 games this entire season at the NHL level.
That said, there's already a sheriff in these parts, a lone fistslinger by the name of Krys Barch. Delving deep into the hidden, secretive world of Twitter, we were able to procur a little insight into the Stars' face-tenderizing situation for next season.
