Is there a team more excited for the season than the Dallas Stars?
Okay, yes. I see you Nashville and Winnipeg. Calm down.
Of all the teams in the Central Division, the Stars may have improved the most this offseason. A top line that already enjoyed Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, added the fearsome threat. That would be Alexander Radulov.
Yes, Nashville. THAT Radulov. The one that scored 95 points in over two seasons with the Predators from 2006-2008. Then he left to play in Russia, came back, went home, and then played in Montreal last season. All during that time one thing remained constant: he can score.
Can they score enough outside of the top-line? That is the main questions. Last year, the Stars scored 223 goals. It was better than two playoff teams (Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks), but still sixth best in the division.
