Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk signed seven free agents this past summer with the stated goal of improving the organization’s depth, and after suffering a spate of injuries recently, that additional depth will be severely test...

So whatâs the deal? Was the hit by Dallas Stars D Mark Fistric a clean hit or not? Do we know if Brendan Shanahan has called the Stars to discuss the hit? Has he seen the video from the various angles that are available?

What's always fascinating about these plays are the varying degrees of outrage...
Nino Niederreiter was the recipient of the hit. Fistric did not receive a penalty for the hit, but did get two for roughing when Matt Martin jumped in. Martin received two double-minors for roughing.
What do the 2011-12 NHL season and The Essential Billy Joel have in common? Both are full of questionable hits. Yeah. Billy Joel sucks. Deal with it.
Anyway, here's another one of those questionable hits. Midway through the first period of Saturday's tilt between the New York Islanders and the Dallas Stars, Nino Neiderreiter was cutting through the neutral zone when Mark...
One wouldn’t think the Dallas Stars would be affected much by the relocation of the former Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg this season, but the truth is, that one development has set in motion a series of events that could have a profound im...
