Horrendous start from the Dallas Stars has made them go into comeback very early. They have plenty of time to dig themselves out of the hole they dug, and they’re already starting to do that.

Dallas’ most recent win came last night over an Avalanche team that’s not at full strength. Either way it’s a big division win. The Stars are now 7-3 over their last ten and won four-straight overall. They’ve made up for the hole they dug themselves in and right back where we thought they would be.

I love Dallas’ full team makeup. They have a nice blend of young stars and veteran stars. Tyler Seguin got off to a slow start, but he’s returning to form with 11 points now. Alexander Radulov is also picking up steam. Once these usual big guns of the roster get back to normal, watch out for this team.

The Stars are still just as good, if not better, than the team that shocked the Predators in the first round of the playoffs and played the Blues very hard in the second round. Wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually take the top spot in the division, but I’m going to reserve going that far for now.
