In 10 years #9 and #56 will be added.
I see you're still rocking the banner sig.
I have two issues with the Stars' banners.
1) Western Conference Champions Regular Season isn't a recognized award/trophy. it's an accomplishment for sure but it should not be up there. In two of the three cases, they also won the Presidents so it's a given. It seems like extra fabric for no good reason. Pull those three banners and hoist the 5 North Stars banners up there. Those 2 Campbell and 3 Norris are well deserved and should be displayed. Broten, Goldy, Modano and others helped earn them - they're in your history.
2) The retired numbers kind of get the shaft. Now I realize they inherited 2 from Minnesota and were not obligated to hoist them and the the third accomplished more in Minnesota and as a Devil than as a Dallas Star. For honoring those players I am grateful. However, sticking them all on one banner seems cheesy. Now with Modano and Zubov coming up I hope they separate them out. Give each their own banner, make the banners either generic enough and uniform (perhaps match the white conference banners) or go all the way and have them represent the various eras of the players.
As much as I would love the last remnants of the North Stars, those three players, to have their own banner and for two of them to have green-era banners (Broten would get black), I don't think Dallas will be acknowledging the North Stars with that kind of tribute.
Truthfully, I am just very appreciated that they continued to honor #s 8 and 19 as retired. I was also appreciative that they retired Broten's number, primarily on the things he did in Minnesota. I'll be content if they just keep them hanging in the rafters. Actually, I wish Minnesota had retired Cicerelli's number, but he was still playing when the team left. I would not think Dallas would do so since he never played there. I wonder...is Dino's number retired anywhere? He's one of the leading goal scorers ever.
