Stars closing in on a couple of records

Like many of you today, I'm sitting at work not able to really concentrate because of the home opener tonight.  Very, very excited for tonight.  Anyway, in my work boredom, I decided to check out and do a little research on past Lincoln Stars statistical history.  I'm sort of a stats geek, so this is something I enjoy doing.  Here's what I found:

Current total franchise wins:  490 (overall record of 490-263-68)

Current total franchise goals scored:  2,959

This might be a great idea for a new poll question, or a B³ blog contest.  Which USHL team will the Stars earn their 500th franchise win against?  Which current player will score the GWG in win #500?  Which goaltender will earn the "W" in franchise win #500?  I guess the dream scenario would be a home win against the Omaha Lancers. 

Also, which current Stars player will score the 3,000th goal in franchise history?  Will it be a home game in which the goal is scored, or will it be a road game?  An even-strength goal, short-handed goal, or a powerplay goal?

Anyway, as you can tell I have way too much free time on my hands.  I'd love to hear from all of you regarding these two records.  I'm going to post a new poll question about win #500, so make sure you vote.

Sooo...which team will win #500 come against?  Who scores goal #3,000?

See you all at the IceBox tonight.  Go Stars!

Now you have started something Yeti - we need some rules, points, deadlines LOL. I agree with Bells, it sounds like a fun game/contest to monitor the Stars' progress to meeting those franchise accomplishments! But no pressure :)
