Stars New Head Coach Montgomery: A Winning Profile

July 18th, 2018 In early May, the Dallas Stars introduced its eighth head coach in the team's 25 year history. Jim Montgomery joins the Stars after successful stints in the USHL and NCAA, with the hope that the success carries over to the NHL level. Hiring an unproven lower-level coach was a risky move by...

Dallas Stars Don't Need to Make a Move

July 11th, 2018 The wild early parts of July are fun for hockey fans. It's a hectic time of year in the NHL: players are moving or re-signing, big contracts are being signed, and every once in a while, there is a big-name free agent that your team is reported to be coveting. That's been the story for the Dallas...

Dallas Stars

With the Dallas Stars snubbed at the 2018 NHL Awards last week, it is the third straight season that the club will not take any hardware back to Dallas. Jamie Benn was the last Star to capture an award, winning the Art Ross Trophy at the conclusion of the 2014-15 campaign. Before that, no Star had won since Marty Turco took home the NHL Foundation Player Award for community service during the 2005-06 season. Let's play Stars' advocate and see how the NHL Awards would shake out had they only been given to Dallas Stars players. I present to you: The 2018 Dallas Stars Awards. Vezina Trophy - Best Goaltender Ben Bishop Had it not been for an injury late in the season, Ben Bishop just may have backstopped the Stars to a playoff berth. With a 26-17-5 record and a pretty decent .916 save percentage, Bishop's stats land him right in the middle of the pack as far as goaltenders in the NHL. With a mediocre defense in Dallas, Bishop had to do a little more work than should have...

Stars Goaltending

Arguably the most important position in sports, a goalie can steal a game or playoff series. A goalie can also break the hearts of loyal fans and cost a coach their job. An NHL goalie is the ultimate last line of defense.  There has been a lot of talk about the Dallas Stars goaltending over the past few seasons. And today we review the Top Three All-Time Goalies in Dallas Stars' franchise history. A few qualifiers before we move forward with the All-Time Top Three. First, "All-Time" means we will also consider former Minnesota North Stars goaltenders. Next, all statistics or relevant performance criteria will be based solely on their time with either the Stars or North Stars. Lastly, the goalies must have played in at least one hundred games with Dallas or the Minnesota North Stars. #1 Ed Belfour Stanley Cup Winner https://youtu.be/WwW0ZgUKAuA Ed Belfour is the clear choice for number one on the list. The Stars signed Belfour as a free agent on July 2, 1997. Belfour was...

The 2018 NHL Draft has come and gone. As the teams and newly-drafted players head home, Jim Nill, the Dallas Stars, and their eight new prospects will stay right where they are. In many ways, it was a typical draft for Jim Nill and company. The Stars' GM loves the big boys, and he went big. The average height of this year's class is 6-foot-2 with an average weight of around 201 pounds, none more hulking than the fourth-round pick Curtis Douglas who clocks in at almost 6-foot-9 and 250 pounds. Also typical of Nill is his affinity for the Ontario Hockey League, nabbing four OHLers and then using his other four picks on two Swedes and two forwards from the Western Hockey League. Entering the 2018 Draft, Nill had only selected five centers with his 36 picks as the Stars' GM. Perhaps acknowledging the whole down the middle in their system, Nill used four picks on centers, the most drafted position in Dallas' 2018 class. Also showing his want for wingers, Nill nabbed three of them,...

Stars Prospects

As is tradition in the NHL Draft, nothing shakes out how most expect it to. With the likes of Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson, amongst others, who were widely considered to be top-five or top-10 draft selections, slipping out of their projected spots, the Dallas Stars still stood pat and held on to their pick at No. 13. It's fair to say that no one, aside from maybe the Dallas front office staff, expected who the Stars selected at No. 13. In front of the hometown crowd, 1988 first overall pick Mike Modano and 2007 fifth-round choice and current captain Jamie Benn took the draft stage to announce the Dallas Stars' selection of Ty Dellandrea from the Ontario Hockey League's Flint Firebirds. About Dellandrea Ranked as the No. 25 North American forward on NHL Central Scouting's final list of prospects, Dellandrea was not too much of a stretch at No. 13 for the hosting Stars. While, yes, maybe chosen earlier than most anticipated, especially with higher-rated guys like Joe...

Green to Black: Stars Graphic History, 1967-93

  Hockey fans know that North Stars owner Norm Green earned his infamy by moving the franchise from puck-loving Minnesota to Texas, where high school football draws more interest than the NHL. Fewer know that Green had already flipped the team’s cherished “N” logo over the glass... August 9th, 2017
