Benn negotiations remain confounding

Team executives in our major sports negotiate contracts all of the time and therefore see all sorts of scenarios. But, the rarest of them all is when they have a mountain of money and want to give it to a player, only to find out that his camp is somewhat reluctant to accept it. That appears to be the situation here, 72 hours before opening night in the NHL, as the Dallas Stars...

Stars give NHL greats new roles with team

DALLAS-- Thursday was a big day for the Dallas Stars. Not only did the club announce a number of initiatives to commemorate the franchise's 20th season in the Lone Star State, but the organization also announced the addition of three familiar names to the front office in a variety of roles. Former Star Mike Modano, who retired from the game prior to last season, will re-join...

Stars still well squared away in goal

DALLAS -- When the Dallas Stars open the shortened, 48-game version of the 2013 NHL season on Saturday night against Phoenix at American Airlines Center, they will do so with a familiar face in goal in veteran Kari Lehtonen. Of course, the Finnish netminder has firmly established himself as Dallas' No. 1 option between the pipes ever since he came over in a trade with Atlanta...

Modano returns to Stars for 20th season in Texas

Mike Modano is returning to the Dallas Stars for their 20th anniversary season, though he won't be on the ice. The Stars on Thursday announced the hiring of Modano as an executive adviser.

Stars seek end to playoff drought in short season

The Dallas Stars are a long way from playoff relevance after four straight years without a postseason trip. Such a drought was unthinkable when team captain Brenden Morrow was a rookie in 2000 and Dallas was in the middle of a four-year stretch that included 73 playoff games. Getting back to the playoffs will require the Stars to navigate the NHL's version of a short season...

The Dallas Stars Start Celebrating Their 20th Anniversary

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars kicked off the club's 20th Anniversary by announcing several season-long initiatives in celebration of two decades in Dallas. The team officially announced the hiring of Stars great Mike Modano, who re-joins the club as Executive Advisor and Alternate Governor. Three-time Stanley Cup champion Mark Recchi has been hired to bolster the hockey...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Morrow's Stars Swan Song Season?

As the Dallas Stars approach the lockout-shortened 2013 season, they do so facing the very real possibility that it will be the final campaign that long-tenured team captain Brenden Morrow will spend as a member of the team. It would not be surprising at all, in fact, if Morrow does not finish the season as a Star if the team is not in serious playoff contention by the time the...

2013 Preview: 10 Big Questions About the Stars

1) Can the team find their chemistry quickly enough with the shortened season? There’s a lot of roster turnover on the team and the lack of a real training camp really hurts, but I’m going to say yes. Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney have been around long enough that they should be able to pick up the system quickly. Jagr’s been sort of a mercenary for the past decade so he’s...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Ice Breaker Event, Larsen Expectations

The Dallas Stars' Ice Breaker event is something that predates the NHL lockout. However, this year's version is being done on a much bigger scale than in past years. As with many NHL teams, the Stars will be opening their home arena doors for free in an event that is partially a routine practice session moved to a larger venue and partially a fan-oriented spectacle with a...
