The Dallas Stars cruised past a Minnesota Wild squad made up mostly of ‘bubble’ players and AHLers Tuesday night. With the 4-1 victory, the Stars improved to 3-2-0 in September. They’ll close out the preseason Saturday in the Twin Cities, where they’ll likely face a dramatically different Wild team. It’s easy to dismiss preseason games;

However, when you start to peel the onion back, barring a trade, it becomes clear the Stars cap flexibility is, in a word, nill (pun intended). Forwards (14): Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Alexander Radulov, Jason Spezza, Martin Hanzal, Radek Faksa, Antoine Roussel, Brett Ritchie, Tyler Pitlick, Devin Shore (two-way contract), Curtis McKenzie, Brian Flynn (two-way

The Dallas Stars were busy this summer signing arguably the two best unrestricted free agent forwards on the market to multi-year contracts. First, they signed mountainous Martin Hanzal to a three-year deal worth $14.25 million. The 30-year-old Czech native is 6 foot 6 and 230 pounds. Hanzal excels at faceoffs and brings needed help to

On August 15, two former college hockey players became high-profile National Hockey League, free agents. Will Butcher and Alex Kerfoot, both previously drafted, can now sign with any NHL team. Butcher is former University of Denver defenseman. A fifth-round pick by the Colorado Avalanche in 2013, he has the offensive skills many teams covet. He

Why did the Dallas Stars sign Martin Hanzal? Virtually all of the Stars’ other offseason moves are easily understood: The team needed to make a coaching change, so Ken Hitchcock was hired. To improve their last line of defense, they traded for Ben Bishop and signed him to a six-year deal before the giant goalie

It’s been more than six years since the Dallas Stars used their first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft to select a 6-foot-7 defenseman from Northeastern University. To say Jamie Oleksiak’s development hasn’t happened overnight would be an understatement. However, good things come to those who wait, right? Players of Oleksiak’s stature tend to

The Dallas Stars are building a formidable prospect pipeline, thanks to the Detroit Red Wings. Between 1990 and 2017, the Red Wings qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs an amazing 25 consecutive seasons. Key to that run was the ability to consistently identify and draft NHL-caliber talent, whether near the bottom of the first round

After a 2016-17 season as disappointing and frustrating as the Dallas Stars and their fans endured, some changes were needed. General Manager Jim Nill and his staff have been hard at work for almost three months, and their efforts are bearing fruit. Though Nill still has work to do before he can take a break,

WARNING: This article is grossly unfair to the Dallas Stars. It’s unfair because A) drafting 17- and 18-year-olds is a crapshoot, B) hindsight is 20/20 and C) you can plug in any other team name and write virtually the same article. Disclaimer aside, an autopsy of the Stars’ performance at the 2003 NHL Entry Draft

What can the Dallas Stars get for Cody Eakin? That question must be on General Manager Jim Nill’s mind as June 17 approaches. On that date, he’ll submit a list of protected Stars to the Vegas Golden Knights for their expansion draft. For Eakin to be protected, the Stars would likely have to expose feisty
