The Dallas Stars Will Make the Playoffs

The Dallas Stars Will Make the Playoffs

September 7th, 2018 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...

August 31st, 2018 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...

Stars Prospects

The Dallas Stars have 40 prospects listed in their system. Of those, no one is more ready for their shot at the NHL than the team’s second-round selection (49th overall) in the 2015 draft. Roope Hintz - pronounced ROH-pay - has matured well, like a vintage '89 cabernet sauvignon or a 10-year barrel-aged whiskey. The young Finn may turn out to be the next young star in Dallas as soon as next season. A Rising Finnish Star To get the full scope of Hintz's hockey career, we need to go back to the 2010-11 season. At the ripe age of 14, Hintz was playing for Ilves in his hometown of Tampere, Finland, an organization he would play for up until the 2015-16 campaign. During the 2010-11 season, Hintz split time with the Ilves U16 squad in the SM-Sarja and SM-Sarja Q league, both junior tiers of Liiga, Finland's highest level of professional hockey. In 23 games split between the two leagues, Hintz potted 11 goals and 13 points, finishing sixth on the team in the Q league with a healthy...

Ottawa Senators

In today's rumor rundown, one insider from Boston is wondering if Tyler Seguin is on the Bruins' radar. There are details on Matt Duchene's status in Ottawa and Dylan Larkin's new deal is already having an impact on some other players in the NHL. A couple depth NHL'ers may be headed to Switzerland and a writer out of Edmonton who watched the Ivan Hlinka tournament can't imagine any teams giving up their first-rounders in the next NHL Entry Draft. Seguin Back to Boston? Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston is wondering if the fact the Dallas Stars haven't re-signed Tyler Seguin to a contract extension yet, along with the fact they were trying to land John Tavares and Erik Karlsson over the summer, is a sign the team might not keep Seguin. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent next July. So too, Haggerty wonders if a reunion with the Boston Bruins is possible should the Stars try to trade Seguin. While the idea of Seguin being traded itself shouldn't be ruled out, it...

NHL Rumors

In today's rumor rundown, there is some belief Tyler Seguin will hold out on contract negotiations until next summer to maximize his earnings, Trevor Daley may be a trade candidate in Detroit, there aren't as many rumblings about Torey Krug as there once were, and while one recent drafted rookie decides to join the NHL, one grizzled veteran might be ready to leave. Tyler Seguin Holding Out Until Next Summer? Tyler Seguin is poised to become the story of NHL free agency next summer. Dallas would love to get him signed right away and lock up their franchise center to a long-term deal but NBC Sports’ James O’Brien believes Seguin may choose to wait until next summer to sign.  O'Brien argues Seguin will not only want to see how the Stars fare in terms of potential to go far in the playoffs — they've recently lacked playoff success — but he stands to make far more money if he waits to play the market. The Stars have a new head coach in Jim Montgomery and without playing...

Stars Prospects

On Apr. 29, 2017, the Dallas Stars won the lottery. Quite literally. The 2017 NHL Draft Lottery was a lucky one for Jim Nill and the Stars front office. Initially slotted to pick No. 8 in the draft, Dallas was dealt a pretty solid hand (or lottery ball, rather). The winnings? The third overall pick, the highest draft position in Stars history and the highest selection in franchise history since the North Stars selected a franchise cornerstone with the first overall pick in 1988 in Mike Modano. With just a 5.8 percent chance of moving up, according to the pre-lottery odds, it was a big win for the Stars. It was a highly unlikely and very lucky occurrence, much like - well I guess - winning the lottery. Dallas was certainly thanking its lucky stars. A little less than two months later, on June 23, the Stars cashed in on its lottery earnings and snagged a shiny new blue-chip prospect by the name of Miro Heiskanen. For those of you unaware of who this is, well please allow me to...

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
