Stars Lose Preseason Game To Wild 5-2

Stars Lose Preseason Game To Wild 5-2

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports A shorthanded goal, an injury to a forward, and a newcomer scoring their first goal all in this one. The Dallas Stars dropped to 1-2-0 in their preseason record after a 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild on home ice. On the plus side, the fans in attendance tonight saw actual goals scored, unlike in the first preseason game where they got blanked. They’re still evaluating the roster and instilling their systems. But there’s a few things we can take away from this contest. LET’S GET OUT OF THIS ALIVE, OK? Dallas had quite a scare in the...

Wednesday Links: Forwards, March

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Marchment scores twice, Faksa gets two assists...what is this, offense?! Plus, Central-on-Central violence, Ken Dryden on the Summit Series, and more. The Dallas Stars took their first preseason victory on the road last night, and fans just might be encouraged about how Pete DeBoer’s system will look in action. The 4-3 overtime win over the Arizona Coyotes featured two goals from new guy Mason Marchment – but the real news may be the return of Radek Faksa’s game. Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika brought back notes from...

The Curious Case of Ryan Suter

The Curious Case of Ryan Suter

Photo by Derek Leung/ Ryan Suter is a bit of an enigma and there are two camps amongst Stars fans with rather different opinions about him. So which one is correct? Or are both sides right? Probably no other name has been more divisive on the Dallas Stars Twitterverse during the last summer than the 37-year old native of Madison, Wisconsin: Ryan Suter. A player who was one of the most dominant defensemen of his generation. Also a player who has been labeled by his former teammate and a former Dallas Star, Jason Arnott, as one of the biggest locker room distractions...

Stars Shutout In Preseason Opener to Blues

Stars Shutout In Preseason Opener to Blues

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports A team with a system that’s been in place for a long time outscored one trying to implement a system they started working on four days ago. The Dallas Stars played their first real-world hockey under coach Pete DeBoer. Against the St. Louis Blues, a team that has been playing their system for years, the Stars — on just day four of their system implementation — looked outmatched. The Blues coasted to an easy 4-0 win. There were some good things to take from the game, and some things to work on. Let’s dive in. Matej Blumel and...

Monday Links: Break Up To Make Up?

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ An unscheduled reunion has added even more intrigue to this season’s forward combos. Plus, who could win an opening-night spot, where to stream tonight’s preseason game, and more. Say it with me: Jason Robertson is rejoining the Dallas Stars’ starting lineup sooner rather than later. But as it turns out, his scheduled absence from training camp is having knock-on effects that – wait for it – just might end up helping the team. So says Saad Yousuf, who’s been covering Stars training camp for The Athletic. He does have receipts, and...

Stars Open Training Camp With Excitement, Pace

Photo by Brian Babineau/NHLI via It was a long grind of a first day on the ice. The Dallas Stars training camp opened with on-ice sessions that were fast and hard-working. How did captain Jamie Benn, one of the older forwards on the ice, prepare for the new puck-possession style new coach Pete DeBoer favors? “Just tried to get faster,” Benn said. “All these young guys are coming in and they can skate. I ain’t getting any younger,” he joked. The captain is sporting a Vikings-esque hair cut tied into a top knot and looks relatively lean to the naked eye. In...

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports The right-handed defender sees an opportunity to shine with the Stars. Plus, a new top-200 ranking, a hazing scandal in junior hockey, and more. The Dallas Stars traded draft picks, including a conditional first-rounder, for Nils Lundkvist. And we know how highly Jim Nill values his draft picks. Dare we imagine...they’re a little hyped about it? Certainly, the Stars’ new Swedish right-hander has a stat sheet that suggests a bright future in the highest league.

Nils Lundkvist Acquisition A High-Ceiling Move By Jim Nill

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The young Swedish defenseman has a lot of potential - and the Stars made a shrewd gamble to acquire him. It’s not often Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill has made a trade for a player under the age of 23 since he took the helm in 2013. Since acquiring Tyler Seguin on July 4th that year, Nill has traded for only two players under that age threshold - Mattias Janmark, whom he acquired from the Detroit Red Wings in 2015; and Dillon Heatherington, whom he acquired in 2017. Janmark went on to play four full seasons with the Stars, and suffer a...

Stars Finish off Traverse City Tournament with 7-1 Blowout of the Blues

Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via Matej Blumel scores a hat trick. Everyone gets sprinkles. The Dallas Stars didn’t have their legs early against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday morning in Traverse City. A 14 hour turnaround will do that, especially with a Blues team coming in with a full day off. In their first game of the tournament, against the Toronto Maple Leafs, an aggressive forecheck led to a cascade of goals. On Sunday, Matt Murray looked every part of an AHL number one netminder, keeping the Blues off the scoreboard during what turned out to be the most critical...
