From Gulutzan to Lehtonen, risks have rewarded Dallas Stars

There was a time when depending on Kari Lehtonen to be in your lineup on a regular basis was about as reliable as Patrick Kaleta not head-butting a guy. That changed when Lehtonen was dealt to the Dallas Stars in the middle of the 2009-10 season. The move was looked at as a big risk by GM Joe Nieuwendyk, especially since a 4th-round pick and touted prospect Ivan Vishnevskiy went...

Avs can be optimistic after loss

The Colorado Avalanche lost 6-7 in OT against the Dallas Stars in what Steve Martin would’ve referred to as a wild and crazy game. I still believe that the Avs have reason to feel cautiously optimistic after their loss, even though the team saw several defensive breakdowns and didn’t get the usual quality of goaltending from Semyon Varlamov. The reason for the optimism can be...
