Jamie Benn's Art Ross Presentation Was Perfect: A Short, Soft-Spoken History of Public Speaking

If you weren't in on the joke, Jamie Benn being played off the stage at the NHL Awards may have come off as an insult. But it was really a clever way the Art Ross Trophy winner could laugh at his own weaknesses. When we write about how far Jamie Benn has come, we're usually talking about his play on the ice. After all, the Dallas Stars captain and 2014-15 Art Ross Trophy winner started his career as one of those marginal prospects deep in the draft, so far down the radar of some scouts that the line "We’re not sure if he’s really that slow, or he just refuses to move" was written about...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Jamie Benn is a Star at the NHL Awards

Jamie Benn and John Klingberg got (some of) the recognition they deserve during the 2015 NHL Awards. Plus, Patrick Sharp on the hot stove, and Tyler Seguin in the altogether. Ahh, the NHL Awards: hours of cringe-inducing television punctuated by seconds of genuine emotion. Thanks to some Very Important Stars, Dallas fans actually had something to tune in for. First of all, there was the moment we've all been waiting for: Jamie Benn receiving his due as the 2015 Art Ross Trophy winner. Plus Jamie was selected to...the 2nd Team All Stars. (WIth an Art Ross Trophy? What does a brother have to...

Hart Trophy Voting: Jamie Benn 12th place

Stars captain Jamie Benn comes in 12th place. Jamie Benn was nominated for the Ted Lindsay award as the MVP as voted by the players. However, he wasn't nominated for the Hart Trophy - the official MVP. John Tavares took his spot there. Carey Price picked up the MVP after earlier winning the Vezina. Jamie Benn came in 12 place despite the players recognizing how special of a player he is. Here are the results: No other Dallas Star received a single vote. I'm not surprised that a Dallas Star didn't ultimately win the award, but this is a pretty surprising showing. Especially for...

Ted Lindsay Award 2015: NHL players vote Carey Price the league's most outstanding player

The 2015 Ted Lindsay Award winner is Carey Price. The 2015 Ted Lindsay Award, given to the player voted the most valuable to his team according to the members of the NHL Players' Association, belongs to Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price. The finalists for the award were Price, Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn, and Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin. This is probably an omen for the last award of the evening, the Hart Memorial Trophy.

2015 NHL Awards: The Jamie Benn Show

The NHL Awards are happening tonight and we're all gathered around to watch the festivities. Use this stream to keep up to date on all news that breaks. The NHL Awards are cringe-worthy every year. This year we actually have a reason to watch though. Jamie Benn has already won the Art Ross Trophy as the league's leading scorer. He's up for the Ted Lindsay Award, the MVP as voted on by the players. He should be named to a post-season All Star team too. The Jamie Benn Show should make this bearable. The NHL Network pregame (pre-Awards?, pre-show?) begins right now. The actual awards show...

NHL 16 Cover: Jamie Benn a Prime Candidate

The NHL 16 cover athlete will be revealed tonight at the NHL Awards. Why not Jamie Benn? The last time a Dallas Star graced the cover of a video game was when Marty Turco graced the cover of NHL2k6. It's time for a change. Tonight EA Sports is going to announce the cover athlete for NHL 16 at the NHL Awards Show. Jamie Benn is already leaving with the Art Ross and he could pick up the Ted Lindsay Award. Why not complete the night and walk away as a cover athlete for a video game? Yeah, he does have some competition. P.K. Subban Subban lost to Patrice Bergeon last year when EA put...

Anyway, on to the most important part: the Ted Lindsay breakdown. Formerly...

LBC Mock Draft: Kyle Connor goes 12th overall to the Dallas Stars

The speedy USHL standout could slide into the top 10 on June 26th, but in the LBC Mock Draft, he's going a bit later than that. We've now passed the Florida Panthers' selection (Mikko Rantanen) in our LBC Mock Draft, but there are still 19 more picks to go until we finish. Up next is the Dallas Stars, who had a rough year as an organization. They already had Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin on the roster, and an offseason trade brought Jason Spezza over from Ottawa. Despite this wealth of talent, the Stars failed to make the playoffs and will have a tough road to the postseason next year, as the...
