Slow-starting Stars return from break with eye on playoffs

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Jason Spezza won't deny that his arrival in Dallas helped create expectations that the Stars struggled to meet early in the season. He's just glad the weight wasn't enough to ruin the season before the Stars reached the All-Star break. ''When you're a team that makes the playoffs and then you add a couple of pieces, the expectations take another step,'' said Spezza...

Handing out the Dallas Stars midseason grades

The Dallas Stars are 21-18-7 going into the All-Star break. They sit in eleventh place in the Western Conference and are just four points out of a playoff spot. While most people around the league expected Dallas to be considerably higher in the standings, the season thus far has been good enough to stay in the hunt heading into the final months of the regular season. But just how...

Vernon Fiddler defies odds; plays 700th NHL game

Stars’ center Vernon Fiddler played in his 700th NHL game this week. That’s quite a feat considering Fiddler was undrafted and toiled over eight season in the minors in such places as Kelowna, British Columbia and Medicine Hat, Alberta. After eight seasons in the lower leagues, the Edmonton native was called up from the Milwaukee […] The post Vernon Fiddler defies odds; plays...

The NHL All-Stars somehow found a way to make the All-Star Fantasy Draft entertaining

The typical pattern for a sports broadcast is engaging commentary from announcers and analysts, mixed with often dull-as-dishwater quotes from the athletes and/or coaches themselves when grabbed for an interview during a break in play. That was reversed in Friday night’s NHL All-Star Game Fantasy Draft, though, where the professional broadcasters couldn’t get out of their own...

Tyler Seguin: My Time In Boston Will ‘Unfortunately’ Be Defined By My Exit

Tyler Seguin is telling his side of the story. After an unceremonious exit from Boston, the young Dallas Stars center has blossomed into the player the Bruins hoped he could be when they drafted him second overall in the 2010 draft. Seguin, among the league leaders in goals (28) and points (52), has kept relatively mum about his time in Boston since being traded in the Fourth...

Ray Whitney's legacy: Leadership, humor, underappreciated skill

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Examples of individual greatness are easy to spot on the ice. An electrifying goal, a game-saving stop, a momentum altering hit or a how-did-he-do-that pass. Great leadership is much harder to define. While there is plenty of hyperbole devoted to the term, rarely does a moment jump out, smack you in the face and proclaim. 'This is leadership.' It did on April...

Comparing Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn To Other High-Scoring NHL Duos

The Dallas Stars have undergone quite the transformation at forward since Jim Nill took over as general manager following the 2012-13 season. In two offseasons, he’s acquired two top-six centers in Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza to lessen the scoring burden on captain and first-line left winger Jamie Benn. He also signed top-nine winger Ales Hemsky as a free agent last summer....

Tyler Seguin-Jamie Benn ‘Bromance’ Making Them One Of NHL’s Top Duos (Photos)

The Dallas Stars have found something pretty special in the combination of Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. The two players were fine young talents before being united, but ever since Seguin was acquired by the Stars in the summer before the 2013-14 season, they’ve turned into one of the NHL’s most dynamic duos. Seguin and Benn are at it again this season...

Dallas Stars’ playoff push a matter of improving from within

The Dallas Stars currently sit fifth in the Central Division with 49 points (20-17-7), just two points behind Calgary for the final wild card playoff spot.

Dallas Stars are “probably a ways off” from hosting outdoor game

Now that the NHL has hosted an outdoor game successfully in California, will the league target southern areas such as Florida or Texas? Gary Bettman has already rained on the idea of Florida hosting a Winter Classic or Stadium Series game, but is Texas still a possibility? According to Dallas Stars president Jim Lites, an outdoor game in Texas is “probably a ways off.” Lites’...

Julius Honka Gives Finns 1-0 Lead In Important Match Against Germany

For Finland, this game meant more then anything. The 2014 World Junior champions, Finland is hosting the 2016 World Juniors, and getting relegated could have meant that they would end up losing the event. The team last played in the relegation round in 2013, a year before they won it all in Sweden last year. With that in mind, Finland began the game strong. With three minutes off...

Dallas Stars a disappointment, Tyler Seguin is not

Coming into this 2014-15 NHL season, the Dallas Stars were the sexy pick by many to make some serious noise out of the Western Conference. Not that those types of predictions weren’t justified. Coming off of a season in which they improved a great deal off of their brief rebuild, they made some very notable additions, including the likes of Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky, among...
