Eddie Leaves Dallas

Eddie Deserves Better...

Eddie and Guy

Unfortunately, when a team doesn't win the finger pointing always starts with the man between the pipes.  If you have even casually followed the Stars during Eddie's tenure, you will know that placing the blame on him for the embarrasing season is unjustified.  The team's lack of performance defensively and offensively is only the tip of the iceberg.  Lack of leadership in the locker room, the willingness to put forth an effort every night, and inadequate aquisition of players in the off season and during the season are what the fans had to endure during the 2001-2002 season.
