PLAYERS: Derek Roy
TEAMS: Dallas Stars
There are not too many players in the NHL for whom I feel the lockout was beneficial in the long run. But in the case of some players who were rehabbing injuries that would have forced them to miss time had the 2012-13 season begun on time, the added recuperation time could prove to be beneficial. One such player is new Dallas Stars center Derek Roy. After undergoing shoulder surgery in July,...

Stars focused on signing Benn to new deal

FRISCO, Texas-- Like every other NHL general manager, Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk doesn't really know when training camp or the upcoming shortened regular season will start as the schedule as well as the league calendar for what figures to be a 48-game regular season figures to be finalized later this week once the new collective bargaining agreement is ratified both by the NHL&...

Are the Stars a playoff team in 2013?

Now that the start of the NHL season, albeit a truncated 48-game version will be played after an extended lockout, is on the horizon, it's time to talk about whether or not the Dallas Stars will end a playoff dry spell that has now reached four years? Of course, the club was very active in the off-season, trading franchise fixtures Steve Ott and Mike Ribeiro while adding veterans...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Quick Update on Jagr

Originally, new Dallas Stars forward Jaromir Jagr was not going to play in yesterday's Extraliga game between HC Rytiri Kladno (Kladno Knights) and HC Litvinov. As with most returning NHL players, Jagr understood the need for caution. No one wants to risk injury right before heading back to North America. But Jagr isn't most players. He is an icon in the Czech Republic...

Healthy Morrow a welcome sight for Stars

FRISCO, Texas -- In a lot of ways, the rough going Brenden Morrow experienced last season mirrored exactly how things went for the Dallas Stars as a team. The Dallas captain missed 25 games due to a combination neck and shoulder injury and finished the year with just 26 points (11-15-26) in 57 games, a sharp drop-off from the year before when he led the team with 33 goals. And once...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Does Dallas Have a Playoff-Caliber Blueline?

The Dallas Stars appear to be a little weaker on defense than they were heading into last season. While the team will be able to ice a lineup with six bonafide NHL defensemen, the club could really use more size and a shutdown blueliner to play against other teams' top lines. Another big shot from the point (to replace Sheldon Souray's) wouldn't hurt, either. Currently...

2013 Preview: Goaltenders

Today we preview what the goalie situation is going to look like this season in Dallas. In other words: Kari Lehtonen, Kari Lehtonen and Kari Lehtonen. The Stars have always been a strong goalie development team and this year is certainly no different with the addition of Christopher Nihlstorp to the organization to the already fantastic crop of guys.   Kari Lehtonen...

2013 Preview: The Defensemen

Today’s post on the Stars is over the defensive side of the ice for the team. Last season, Dallas was a mediocre (maybe even a poor) team defensively. Missed assignments were abundant and any team with some speedy forwards gave Dallas a lot of trouble. Their defensive numbers would have been much worse if not for the stellar play of Kari Lehtonen and at times, Richard Bachman....
