2013-2014 Season Preview: Defensemen and Goalies

Brenden Dillon Dillon was the single biggest and best surprise from last season. Entering the year fans were hoping that he would be a solid contributor. Dillon ended up being best defenseman on the team and was getting top-pair minutes by the latter stages of the season. He was largely (and criminally) ignored in the Calder conversation though, so he’s still largely an...

The Dallas Stars defensive struggles: part 2

(Read part one by clicking here.) There is a silver lining for the Dallas Stars defensemen, however. As the saying goes, “defense wins championships” I compared the Dallas Stars defensemen to the Chicago Blackhawks defensemen from last season using the formula below: Y=Σ ((GP1TO1)/PT1, (GP2TO2)/PT2,…, (GPnTOn)/PTn) In simple terms, this analyzes the teams’ defense in terms...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Expectations for Chiasson, Dillon, Oleksiak and Roussel

What Are Realistic Expectations for Dillon, Chiasson, Oleksiak and Roussel? One of the most pleasant developments for the Dallas Stars in a disjointed 2013 season was the play of a group of rookies who spent time in the NHL after the lockout.

Staubitz ejected for spearing Dillon in groin

This is the second spearing incident in the NHL in the last 24 hours, and I really hope this is not a new trend.  Anaheim Ducks forward Brad Staubitz tried to disguise his spear as a blocked shot attempt, but the referee was not fooled.  Dallas Stars defenseman Brenden Dillon returned to the game, but that doesn’t making watching this any less painful.  There has to be some...
