The Dallas Stars have signed Tyler Seguin to an eight-year contract extension worth $78.8 million, the Stars announced Thursday. The deal will pay Seguin $9.85 per season which is more than Stars' captain Jamie Benn's $9.5 annual salary. Seguin was reportedly disgruntled that a deal hadn't been agreed upon heading into the 2018-19 season but he can rest easy knowing he got a very good payday. https://twitter.com/DallasStars/status/1040285920858136576 Seguin has been a member of the Stars since the 2013-14 season following a trade from the Boston Bruins. While he showed a lot of promise and potential in Boston, the team elected to trade him for reasons that are still not quite clear over five years later. In Dallas, however, Seguin has proven to be a superstar and at 26 years old, the best might be yet to come. In his five seasons with the Stars, Seguin has scored 173 goals and 384 points in 387 games. He's recorded upwards of 30 goals four times in that stretch including a...

NHL Rumors

In today's rumor rundown, the Dallas Stars and Tyler Seguin are talking again and may be closer to working out a deal prior to the start of the season. In Columbus, things don't look as promising as the team and star players Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky don't seem to be on the same page. Eric Staal has made it known how he feels about the Minnesota Wild and Darnell Nurse may miss camp for the Edmonton Oilers. Seguin and Dallas Talking Again After earlier saying he was “disappointed” when it came to the status of his contract situation in Dallas, Tyler Seguin and the organization got back together almost immediately after that and began talking again. According to Mark Stepneski of NHL.com, belief is things are going well and GM Jim Nill said, "We are deep in discussions. It’s moving in the right direction. We’ll go from there. I’d like to get it done before the season starts, but with negotiations, you never know. But I think both parties would like to get it...

In the NHL—and really all professional sports—the offseason is meant to be a time when general managers reflect on the state of their respective teams and formulate a plan to get better. After all, the name of the game is improvement. No team wants to stay stagnant and miss the postseason year after playoff-less year. But that's been the story for the Dallas Stars. Only two trips to the playoffs in the past decade is a disaster for a team's fanbase. It's a long and arduous 82-game year, and to not enjoy the thrills of playing hockey deep into April and May is frustrating to say the least. It's Dallas general manager Jim Nill's job to ensure that when the Stars hit the ice, it's the best 23 men he's got. And despite a relatively quiet offseason for Nill and the Stars, the team has gotten decidedly better than the 10th-place team of yesteryear or the below-.500 squad from 2016-17, both of which failed to secure a spot in the postseason. This season will have a different outcome....

For the last few summers, the Dallas Stars have become known for making a big splash. Whether it's from acquiring new players through trade or free agency, a change in coaching staff or front office, or drafting a generational talent, the team's exciting offseasons have made up for the lack of playoff hockey. But however quiet or busy the offseason is for the Stars, the question remains the same each and every year: Is the team better? For Dallas, it's been a decade of doubt. The glaring issue is, the Stars have enjoyed only two playoff appearances in the last 10 years. For a squad that's bursting at the seams with young talented players like Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, and John Klingberg, their playoff drought is shocking. They are close though. Season after season, the Stars have come up just short - a couple more wins, a few one-goal games shy of postseason play, an injury or two from playoff glory. But those are excuses. In sports, it's not about making excuses - every...
