Dallas Stars Daily Links: Bringing It All Together

Lindy Ruff talks about what each new Stars player brings to the team. Plus, Jim Nill's expectations for Valeri Nichushkin, and the best stories from 2014-15. After a whirlwind week of acquiring Patrick Sharp, Stephen Johns, and Johnny Oduya, all was quiet on the Dallas Stars front this weekend.

How concerned should we be about Trevor Daley?

With Trevor Daley essentially replacing Johnny Oduya on the Blackhawks' blue line, many have already begun to push the panic button. How worried should we be? On Tuesday afternoon, fans of the Chicago Blackhawks were hit with the inevitable: Johnny Oduya will not be returning to the Hawks on a new deal. An unrestricted free agent, there was a glimmer of hope that he'd return after the Hawks dealt Brandon Saad and even briefly after the Patrick Sharp trade, but with a defenseman that has had the success that Oduya has had in Chicago, this was likely always going to be the end...

Patrick Sharp and Chicago Blackhawks Fans Look Back

This is a sad post. Chicago was pretty fond of Patrick Sharp, and Sharp was pretty fond of Chicago. There has been a large outpouring of love between the two in the wake of the trade that sent Sharp to the Dallas Stars for Trevor Daley. Sharp took out a full page in the Sunday Chicago Tribune thanking fans for their support: Second City Hockey has had quite a bit to say about Sharp too. Their career retrospective is worth a read despite being sad. He could see his number hoisted up into the rafters as a result. He's certainly deserving. But whether or not that happens, Sharp is...

My favorite memories from Patrick Sharp's amazing career with the Blackhawks

Ten years, three Stanley Cups and a whole lot of great memories. Patrick Sharp's time with the Blackhawks kicked ass. How many players get to be part of taking a franchise from embarrassing afterthought to beloved champion? Patrick Sharp did a lot of things during a decade with the Chicago Blackhawks that are worth remembering, but nothing comes close to his role in making the team what it is now. Sharp arrived in the middle of a 25-43-13 season for the Blackhawks in 2005-06. His teammates included a 22-year-old Duncan Keith and a 20-year-old Brent Seabrook, the earliest seeds of what would...

Analyzing the return in the Patrick Sharp trade

The return for the Blackhawks in the Patrick Sharp-Stephen Johns trade may have been underwhelming, but Trevor Daley and Ryan Garbutt will be important pieces for the Blackhawks next season. When you're trading a player that has the type of longevity and success in his career that Patrick Sharp has had with the Chicago Blackhawks, no return is going to seem like enough. Not only was he a fan favorite, he was a dynamite player for the majority of his decade with the team. Replacing him will be an extremely difficult task, whether on or off the ice. But considering the situation Stan Bowman...
