With a potential work stoppage, the Stars could guarantee a lot of money for games that might not happen if they sign Tyler Seguin

Tyler Seguin is still unsigned which is a bit of a problem. He's kind of good, and the Stars kind of need him to stick around. After this coming season he'll hit free agency. His next contract presents a problem the Stars have only had to really face with Jamie Benn and to lesser extents Ben Bishop and Alex Radulov: negotiating against the next coming labor stoppage.The NHL and NHLPA both have opt outs of the collective bargaining agreement in September of 2019 for a deal that otherwise expires in 2022. If either side opts out a new deal would need to be agreed upon before the 2020-2021...

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).

Why the Stars chose this offseason to bring back Russian forward Valeri Nichushkin

Why the Stars chose this offseason to bring back Russian forward Valeri Nichushkin

(Editor's note: This was originally posted July 1, 2018.)At the 2013 NHL Draft the Dallas Stars watched as a young Russian winger fell. They watched as the Vancouver Canucks traded goaltender Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils for pick nine in the draft, but then watched as Vancouver selected center Bo Horvat. The Stars then selected Valeri Nichushkin with the first pick of the Jim Nill era.Nichushkin came with promise, hit a few snags, and headed home for Russia after the 2016 season. Two years later Nichushkin is officially headed back to North America. Today the Stars and Nichushkin...

Devin Shore's production dropped by only a point so why are his underlying numbers important?

I recently took a deep dive into the fancy stats of Devin Shore to try to figure out why he had such a massive negative Goals Above Replacement at even strength in the 2018 season. An important question, doubt, pessimism , some word I'm not literate enough to articulate - came up.It's an interesting point worthy of further discussion. Shore's point totals went down by merely one point overall, but point totals are often misleading. Point totals don't reflect what Shore should be expected to do next season, rather they can cover for how poor his even strength impact actually was.I pulled the...

Did a gluten-free diet lead to a scoring spike for Stars first rounder Ty Dellandrea?

Did a gluten-free diet lead to a scoring spike for Stars first rounder Ty Dellandrea?

Editor's note: This story was originally published on June 23, 2018.Update: Some of the numbers Sportsnet put out on the draft broadcast are a little off. Dellandrea only played in 67 games this past season plus five at the U-18 World Junior Championships. Dellandrea did have six goals in his 14 games through the end of the month of October plus six more scoreless after that. Over the final 47 games Dellandrea had 21 goals. The conclusions still look sound, but the numbers were a touch off. Thanks for Brandon Worley and Derek Neumeier for pointing it out.Dallas Stars first-round pick Ty...
