Stars signing John Tavares seems crazy, but can be done

Stars signing John Tavares seems crazy, but can be done

I try to ignore the John Tavares talk as much as possible. The Dallas Stars pursuing Tavares seems like something I would do: moderately irrational #yolohockey roster management. It isn't often that you have players as good as Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, John Klingberg, and Alexander Radulov to build around so you better go for it, the thinking goes. Adding Tavares to that group sounds like pie in the sky nonsense that I would dream up while saying to hell with the future, win now.And yet......it is now popping up.I wrote about the idea of Tavares to the Stars recently, but the idea was to...

Flashback: A must-read behind-the-scenes look at the Stars' 1999 Stanley Cup and why it was so special for Dallas

Editor's note: This was originally published on the 15th anniversary of the Dallas Stars winning the Stanley Cup. We're bringing it back to take a look at what key members of that team said winning the Cup meant to them. Some minor edits have been made.===From former Stars beat writer Mike HeikaFor some, it was one of many championships. For others, it was the only one in their career. But for all, the 1998-99 Dallas Stars winning the Stanley Cup was a special memory.When Brett Hull scored early in the morning of June 20 in the third overtime of Game 6, it ended not only one of the longest...

This bizarre Ken Hitchcock memory about Stars' Stanley Cup involves Dallas preparing to play a Game 7

Editor's note: We're bringing this back since it is the 19-year anniversary of the Dallas Stars starting Game 6 and eventually winning their first Stanley Cup in the early hours of the next day.===The general manager making midnight phone calls from the dressing room.It is the curse of any great coach or athlete that the losses stand out more than the victories. And so it's perfectly appropriate that, as he moves on from a lifetime in coaching, even Ken Hitchcock's memory of his greatest triumph -- a triple-overtime Game 6 victory in Buffalo to bring the Stanley Cup to Dallas -- bends towards...

2018 NHL Entry Draft: Notable Dallas Stars Targets For Rounds 4-7

With enough hard work and a little bit of luck, hidden gems can be found in every round of the draft Draft week is finally upon us. By this point, after weeks (and months) of widespread coverage, you’re probably sick and tired of reading about Rasmus Dahlin, Andrei Svechnikov and many other prospects who are projected to go in the 1st round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. However, every year the draft goes far, far beyond just the opening round. Sure, the later the draft goes, the less likely that any of the players picked will go on to long, successful NHL careers. That doesn’t mean,...

How Jim Montgomery could bring some old-school Cowboys draft strategy to the Dallas Stars

FRISCO -- Will new Stars coach Jim Montgomery bring the Jimmy Johnson Effect to the Stars' work in the NHL draft?Johnson moved from a championship run at the University of Miami to take over as the Cowboys' head coach in 1989. Johnson gave the Cowboys an extra asset in their drafts early in his tenure with his fresh and in-depth knowledge of college players.Montgomery comes from a similar background: coaching powerful University of Denver for the last five seasons, winning an NCAA title in 2017. Montgomery knows the college game.The NHL draft, which begins Friday, differs from the NFL because...

Comparing Valeri Nichushkin to Alexander Radulov using four years of passing data

This morning Ryan Stimson, now of The Athletic Buffalo, made two announcements. One was that he now works for The Athletic Buffalo, and the other was debuting a Tableau tool showing four years of tracked passing data.Stimson and his crew have been tracking an irresponsible amount of information. There are probably hundreds of posts along the way across the internet with conclusions drawn based on data from the project. The initial post is here if you would like a good primer on what they did, but any work you come across dealing with the data is enlightening. When I saw this was out my first...

Texas Hockey History Center showcases vast and rich history of the sport in Texas

I collected an aggressive amount of hockey memorabilia when I was younger. I'm not sure why, but I was always drawn to it. Growing up in Fort Worth we would go to Brahmas games when they were in North Richland Hills and the occasional Fort Worth Fire game. I remember getting a miniature goalie stick from one of these Fire games, and I hadn't thought about that thing in easily 20 years - until this past Saturday.On Saturday I got to go take in the Texas Hockey History Center being curated by the Dallas Stars at the Farmers Branch StarCenter. The ribbon cutting ceremony is Wednesday night, and...

NHL draft profile: If there is a run on centers, this quality defenseman could be best available for Stars at 13

NHL draft profile: If there is a run on centers, this quality defenseman could be best available for Stars at 13

Oh, a defenseman. You may have thought there were literally none in this draft due to our complete lack of profiles of defenders. Alas, there are many. The Dallas Stars really need to find dynamic talent up front so our focus has been on the forwards. Many quality blueliners will likely be available at the 13th pick, including Ty Smith of Spokane in the WHL.With Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic NHL reporting that teams might be focusing on centers at the draft, it's entirely possible that the Stars are staring square in the face of a quality blueliner being the best available player. Ty Smith...
