It has been said that games 40 to 60 - more accurately 41-60 or "3Q" - tell a team's General Manager what he has.

So what did the 2011-12 Dallas Stars tell Joe?

There are many signals, behaviors and factors for him to consider when disseminating info from the 20 games, chief among them injuries to Captain Brenden Morrow, Benn, Ribeiro and Souray, but also an arduous schedule with a ton of travel in the month of February.

All that aside, here are the cold, hard statistical facts he will most certainly be mulling over:

Record 7-10-3

Home 3-5-1

Road 4-5-2

PP 8 for 53 (15%)

PK 54 of 67 (80.5%)

GF 41

GA 51

Won two in a row once

Scored 2 goals or fewer in 14 of the 20 games

Allowed 2 goals or fewer 10 times

Four wins in regulation

Ten regulation losses

I'm really interested to get Joe's take on Q3 and how his evaluation of the segment will impact what he does or doesn't do prior to Monday's Trade Deadline.

Bet you are too.
