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...

Mike Heika examines the factors involved in this year’s superstar extension. Plus, Vegas loves Fleury, Mascherin signs up, the Karlsson Saga plods on, and more. The NHL Draft is over, free agency has gone quiet, and the 2018 offseason stretches as far as the eye can see for hockey lovers everywhere. For Dallas Stars fans, the wait for word on a Tyler Seguin extension is making the summer that much longer and more uncomfortable. But should it be? Certainly, Seguin himself is saying all the right things, writes Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika: “My focus is I have another year with...

Taking a look at the contracts of the Stars’ middle guys. Plus, free agency updates and more! Happy Friday, my friends! I can’t wait to get off work tonight, head home, and turn on some Step By Step and Dinosaurs on TGIF. Not the Mama! Hopefully the following statement will soon be outdated as well, but as of writing, Tyler Seguin is closer to being the Dallas Stars’ third highest-paid center than he is to being No. 1. This, of course, is due to the misused, bad fit for Hitch’s system, and DBD commenter trade fodder that is Jason Spezza. Spezza was quite productive for the Stars...

Can the fan fave become a core player? Plus, a summer recap, a Tyler Seguin sighting, an offer-sheet wish list, and more. The renaissance of Mattias Janmark was one of the Dallas Stars’ most enduring bright spots of the past year. After a diagnosis of osteochondritis dissecans canceled his 2016-2017 season, and very nearly his career, the sturdy Swedish forward played all but one game during the 2017-2018 campaign. He also scored 34 points, including four game-winning goals. But can he claim a spot as a long-term core player? Josh Lile took on this question in a new article at The Dallas...

Between runs at John Tavares and Erik Karlsson, here's the little-noticed element of the Stars' offseason

The Stars' off-season has included runs at center John Tavares and defenseman Erik Karlsson, no extension yet for center Tyler Seguin and some workaday free-agent additions.There is one other, little-noticed element. The Stars have stocked up on spare parts, adding three players who can shuttle between the NHL and the minors on two-way contracts and provide depth for the organization.One or more of these probably will appear with the Stars in the coming season, filling in when a need arises. A look at the human insurance policies added by the club:Winger Erik Condra has the most NHL...

Hold the phone on Erik Karlsson... This 30-goal scorer could also help the Stars right now

Reaching a new deal with Tyler Seguin appeared to be the Stars' primary goal of the offseason. But when high-profile names are on the market, priorities change.When Dallas learned it didn't win the race to sign free agent John Tavares last week, the Stars' attention shifted to making a trade for Ottawa defensemen Erik Karlsson.How's that working out? Nobody really knows.And until general managers league-wide know whether Karlsson is getting dealt or staying put, all other offseason business is on hold. Sorry, Seguin.That being said, if Jim Nill is still itching to make a trade, there are...

Stars’ Seguin Still Shining in Dallas

Five years ago, newly-appointed general manager Jim Nill forged his legacy with the Dallas Stars when he made “The Trade.” On July 4, 2013, fireworks filled the skies, but none burned brighter than the fireworks at the Stars’ front office in Dallas, Texas. Nill pulled the trigger on a blockbuster seven-player trade, acquiring Tyler Seguin from […] The post Stars’ Seguin Still Shining in Dallas appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Thursday Links: On Tyler Seguin Day, Questions Linger

Should he stay or should he go? In that answer may lie Jim Nill’s legacy. Plus, coaches and players on the move, and big “ifs” in the Erik Karlsson circus. The Erik Karlsson circus, like the John Tavares sweepstakes before it, has provided a big, shiny fan distraction from the Dallas Stars’ regular business. But one element of it is constantly bubbling under the surface – and that’s the Tyler Seguin contract extension that doesn’t exist, or hasn’t been announced yet, or is just around the corner, probably. Maybe. July 4th, 2018 marked the fifth anniversary of GM Jim Nill’s...

Five years ago today, the Dallas Stars stole Tyler Seguin from the Boston Bruins in a trade

Editor's note: This post has been brought back and updated.There have been plenty of Jim Nill moment in his time with the Dallas Stars. There's been the good (2015 Jason Spezza, Ben Bishop) and the bad (2017 Jason Spezza, Antti Niemi). But nothing really compares to what he did five years ago today.Nill had been with the Stars for just over two months when he traded for Tyler Seguin. Inversely, the Bruins pulled the trigger on the deal just 10 days after losing in the Stanley Cup Final to the Chicago Blackhawks.The deal: Boston sent Seguin, Rich Peverley and Ryan Button for Loui Eriksson,...
