Jason Spezza With His Thoughts On The Trade Process

from Ian Mendes of TSN, After the Senators missed the playoffs in the 2013-14 season, there were rumblings that Spezza was on the trade market. General manager Bryan Murray confirmed that Spezza and his agent Rick Curran had requested a trade in May, which created a ton of media interest leading up to the NHL Draft weekend at the end up of June. Spezza declined an opportunity...

Taylor Hall Or Tyler Seguin?

from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, The Taylor versus Tyler drama at the 2010 draft was, really, driven more by alliteration than uncertainty. Taylor Hall may not have been a slam-dunk first-overall pick ahead of fast-rising Tyler Seguin, but by the time the Edmonton Oilers brass walked to the stage in Los Angeles, it would’ve been genuinely surprising to hear them call a name other...

Dallas GM believes Jason Spezza will sign an extension

When the Dallas Stars acquired Jason Spezza in a trade with the Ottawa Senators, one of the concerns was that Spezza would take off as soon as he completed the final year of his current contract. Trading for Spezza appeared to be a risk due to his advancing age and the possibility that an extension wouldn’t develop and the organization would have paid a hefty price for a one-year...

On if the team is a Stanley Cup contender: “Stanley Cup contending teams are teams that make the playoffs. The NHL has changed. The parity in the league is so close.

Should Dallas be worried about its ‘Zoolander’ defense?

The Dallas Stars revamped their offense and have No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen locked up for some time, which only seems to shine a brighter light on what’s believed to be their biggest weakness: team defense. The Stars front office seems confident that they’ll improve from within after a quiet offseason in that area (but, again, certainly not on offense). The team’s website...

Dallas Stars Top Five Scorers

The Dallas Stars made it into the playoffs for the first time since the 2007-08 season thanks in large part to the team’s offensive efficiency.

Here are the Stars top five goal scorers! 5. Ryan...

Dallas Shooting for the Stars

The Dallas Stars are going to be the team to watch in the 2014-15 NHL season in my opinion. Jim Nill is doing amazing things in Dallas and the on-ice product is going to be outstanding. In the past two off-seasons alone Nill has added Shawn Horcoff (bet you didn’t think I’d start there), Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, Ales Hemsky, and Val Nichushkin. The best GMs in the league struggle...

Stars putting their hopes in Lehtonen

The Dallas Stars have high aspirations for this season, but whether or not they can actually succeed in being a serious Stanley Cup contender will be largely dependent on their goaltending. The Stars defense doesn’t look like a Cup-caliber group, so they’ll need goaltender Kari Lehtonen to help pick up the slack. Is he up for the challenge though? Well, there’s two obvious...

Bar has been set high for Nichushkin

When Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill acquired Tyler Seguin, he was giving the team one of the best young duos in hockey. Seguin and Jamie Benn combined to score 71 goals and 163 points in their first season together. More often than not, rookie Valeri Nichushkin was playing alongside them and while he didn’t put up nearly as many points as Seguin or Benn, he did have a solid season with...

After five straight missed postseasons, they finally made it back to the playoffs in 2013-14. And with Jason Spezza on board for 2014-15, some believe they’ve become legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. Off the ice, however, the hockey team still has a ways to...

Remarkably, the club set franchise records for largest single-game crowd and smallest single-game crowd during the 2011-12 season. Since then, attendance figures have been pretty ugly. The team averaged 79.1% capacity, the worst mark in the NHL, during its home games in 2013-14. The tide is starting...
