Stars' goaltending creates concern just days into camp

The Dallas Stars insisted all summer that they intended to focus on defense first following a 2014-15 campaign which saw them finish fourth-to-last in the NHL in goals allowed per game.

San Jose Sharks trade rumors: Cohesion is key

Antti Niemi As the trade deadline approaches, we can expect some headline-worthy moves to be made and for some big names on the trading block to start making waves, but it’s unlikely that those moves or big names will make their way to San Jose. Although it is entirely possible for San Jose Sharks general manager, Doug Wilson, to, at the last minute, decide to make a splash, the...
