Tyler Seguin should follow Jamie Benn, not Drew Doughty, when negotiating his new contract

Drew Doughty signed a massive contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings for $88 million over the next eight years. Tyler Seguin is going to be signing his own extension before too long, but he would be risking a significant amount of money by following the structure of Doughty's contract. Jamie Benn's contract is a much better model for Seguin to follow.Benn's contract guarantees him a significantly higher percentage of the money he signed up for than Doughty's deal because Benn's deal is effectively buyout proof. Benn is getting most of his salary, especially towards the end, in signing...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: The Summer of Benn

The captain has had quite an eclectic summer. Plus, it’s lists and rankings season, a Miro sighting, and more! Happy Friday, everyone! I hope the upcoming weekend finds you well. I don’t have much to say today, so we’ll get right into it. Enjoy some baseball, life, family, friends, or preseason football, if that’s your thing (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Jamie Benn has stayed busy this summer, seemingly having a good mix of fun and work. Mike Heika sat down to ask him some questions about it: On the music he likes to listen to: Benn: A little bit of everything,...

How Ken Hitchcock's time with Mike Modano helped mold Tyler Seguin's transformation last season

How Ken Hitchcock's time with Mike Modano helped mold Tyler Seguin's transformation last season

Editor's note: This was originally published April 1, 2018.It seemed perfect that Mike Modano was on hand Saturday when Tyler Seguin scored his 40th goal of the season.It was the first time Seguin tallied 40 goals, and he became just the third player since the team moved to Dallas in 1993 to hit that mark -- with Modano and Jamie Benn being the others. And while that paints a picture of toe drags and dekes and one-timers, the manner in which Seguin tallied these numbers is the real story.He did it by playing defense.Well, by letting his defense lead to his offense.It's a well-worn strategy in...

National writer: John Klingberg's contract ranks among best in NHL, gives Stars a 'favorable cap situation'

National writer: John Klingberg's contract ranks among best in NHL, gives Stars a 'favorable cap situation'

With Jamie Benn's paycheck already on the books and the anticipated extension of Tyler Seguin on the horizon, the Stars have been on a mission to find great value at every position for a few years now. In fact, every team in the NHL is.But the Stars have done a really great job.For example, John Klingberg. The Stars control the best offensive defensemen in the league for a cap hit of only $4.25 million.This has always been a big deal, but Klingberg's value largely went unnoticed until his breakout season in 2017-18.ESPN's Emily Kaplan recently pointed this fact out in her recent ranking of...
