Talked with co-GMs Les Jackson and Brett Hull today about the current state of this Stars team. Les said everyone is frustrated with the situation, considering the expectations. Hull was a bit more blunt:
"Either they need to kick themselves in the (butt) or we're going to do it for them," he said. "What it is, you don't know, but something has to change."
Hull said everyone will be sitting down tomorrow to start figuring out what needs to happen here. Well, he knows what needs to happen here: The players have to start playing the way he and Jackson knows they can.
As far as the talk from Marty Turco and Mike Modano on Saturday night, both GMs were all for it.
Jackson: "I don't blame them for what they say. If that's their true feelings, then that's good. You have to be accountable. Those guys are great team players, always have been, and I totally respect where they're coming from."
Hull: "I don't care how they do it, because they need to be held accountable to each other. I've been on Mike for years to start getting vocal. It's your team, and if you want something changed, let it be known."
