They reveal a small weight room, painted red on the bottom half of the walls, white on the top half and connected by a metal ceiling that looks more like...

Finland, loose laces and dull blades: How Stars defenseman Miro Heiskanen developed into an elite skater

Editor's note: This story originally published at on Jan. 24, 2019. On a fall Thursday morning in Boise, Idaho, in the unblemished shine of a new season, the shadow of past failings and the promise of a new savior, Miro Heiskanen arrived. He was the teenager from Finland too prized to part with in trade negotiations, whose adolescence radiated through his boyish face and soft-spoken voice. Heiskanen was the 19-year-old present the Stars were waiting to unwrap, to see if his skills could translate to the NHL and if he could become the next great Dallas defenseman.He unfurled his skillset...

Stars Will Need Khudobin to Step up Again

For as much as Ben Bishop deserves praise for his Vezina-worthy 2018-19 season, it has unfortunately cast a shadow over his number two, Anton Khudobin. Yes, the Dallas Stars regularly highlighted Khudobin’s contribution, but the Khazakhstanian netminder’s performance warrants recognition on a national level. The Stars would have struggled to secure a playoff spot without […] The post Stars Will Need Khudobin to Step up Again appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

The Sharks made a business decision to let Pavelski walk to the Dallas Stars, but he leaves a vacuum, and that's not the only question for the 2019-20 team.

Can Stars’ Sekera Stay Healthy and Strengthen the Blue Line?

Coming off a tumultuous two years, Andrej Sekera will be given the opportunity to make a difference on a well-balanced defensive unit of youth and veteran grit. The 33-year-old Slovak was signed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars in July as part of a trio of free-agent acquisitions.

Stars Must Limit Expectations, Ice Time for Perry

It’s odd to think of Corey Perry as an ex-star, but that’s exactly what he is. Oh, he may have just signed with the Dallas Stars, but, as an ex-Hart Memorial Trophy winner (2010-11) coming off a 10-point season, Perry is not the top-line player he once was. The Stars must realize just that with […] The post Stars Must Limit Expectations, Ice Time for Perry appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Are Dallas Stars contenders after busy offseason?

Are Dallas Stars contenders after busy offseason?

The image of Jamie Benn coming inches away from eliminating the St. Louis Blues in game seven of round two is going to be one that sticks in the minds of fans for a minute. Already as the 2020 (!!!) season approaches the Stars being "inches away" from eliminating the eventual Stanley Cup winners is being used as a way to take the measure of the state of the franchise. Logically, they must be mere inches away from being a legitimate Stanley Cup contender, yeah?Maybe.Let's take as much bias as we can take out of this for the moment by doing some simple math using Evolving-Hockey's Goals Above...

This part of Joe Pavelski's skill set could help the Stars improve their offense in 2019-20

Before the Stars signed Joe Pavelski to a three-year contract worth $7 million annually, coach Jim Montgomery dissected the film. Video coach Kelly Forbes assembled all 38 of Pavelski's goals into a package that Montgomery could sort through by strength and analyze the clips.The broad takeaway was simple: The Stars needed Pavelski's scoring, and the variety of ways he can do so. The other conclusions were more nuanced: how he positioned his body, how he drove the net, the surprising effectiveness of his one-timer and what particular areas of the game Pavelski's skills could help the Stars,...

During this period, hockey fans and experts alike try to pass the time by doing exercises such as predicting point totals, forecasting next season's playoff bracket, and creating lists of the top players in the league for everyone to debate. NHL.com has done just that, as they have begun releasing their annual lists of the top 20 players at each position in the league, with centers coming first. The top of the list comes as no...
