Dallas Stars: Figuring Out Roman Polak's Role For 2019-20 Season The Dallas Stars re-signed Roman Polak to a one-year extension two weeks ago. With him back under contract, what will his new role be in 2019-20?

The Canadian-born chain will open at 8451 Parkwood Boulevard in late summer, bringing more than 40 TVs for watching sports and sports bar fare like chicken wings, a keg full of nachos, and bacon-spiked macaroni and cheese.
2019 NHL Entry Draft Prospect Profile: Victor Soderstrom Position: Right-handed defenseman. Stats: 44 games played, 4 goals, 3 assists, 7 points, 22 PIMs, - 11 plus/minus rating. NHL Central Scouting ranking: 3rd. Comparable NHL player: Anton Stralman. There's a discussion that always skewers any serious debate about a prospect.
Dallas Mavericks should consider Ding Yanyuhang for a two-way contract Two-way contracts mean that a player spends time during the season with the NBA team's G-League affiliate, and has a chance to spend at most 45 days with their NBA team. For the 25-year old Yanyuhang, this should be a perfect opportunity. He would be able to play with the Mavericks and learn with the Texas Legends.
Free Agent Profile: Anton Stralman Due to his projected low cost he has been a popular speculative target for Stars fans, as he would provide an upgrade over Roman Polak while still leaving cap space for a top-six forward like Mats Zuccarello. Of course, when it comes to cheap options, you have to ask yourself why they are cheap.
2019 NHL Entry Draft Prospect Profile: Brett Leason Team: Prince Albert Raiders. Position: Right Wing. Stats: 55 games played, 36 goals, 53 assists, 89 points, 28 PIMs, +55 plus/minus rating. NHL Central Scouting ranking: 25th. Comparable NHL player: Ryan Clowe. Let's get something out of the way. If the Dallas Stars pick Brett Leason at No.
Dallas Stars Daily Links: Is Stephen Johns On The Brink Of Return? 28 is back on the ice and "looks like himself" again, says Jim Nill. Plus, the Sharks sign Erik Karlsson to a whale of a contract, the Rangers round up Jacob Trouba, and more.
Dallas Stars Daily Links: Head Coach Hirings, Extensions, And The Vezina The 2019 offseason is here. And with each offseason comes a lot that the Dallas Stars have to keep an eye on. Here are some Monday links to keep you update…
Dallas Stars' 2020 Stanley Cup Odds Improve from +2900 to +2300 At the same time, this team is capable of winning the Cup next year if a lot of thing go right for them. That's something we wouldn't have said about them in previous seasons. The Stars do need to add to last year's team but the good news is they aren't going to lose much from the roster.
With the collapse of the Warriors' roster and upheaval across the NBA, the Mavs have a chance to be relevant next season The good news for the Warriors is that Toronto closed them out in six games, because at the rate Bay Area icons were falling in the series, the Golden Gate Bridge would have been next. And no less calamitous, at that. First it was Kevin Durant, his Achilles clipped in Game 5.
Should the Dallas Stars consider trading Jamie Benn? It was inevitable that this offseason would have people talking about a Jamie Benn trade the moment Jim Lites publicly ripped Benn and Tyler Seguin. When the nuclear option gets used, the immediate assumption is someone has to go. A Benn trade isn't something I would bet on, but the concept of a Benn trade is one worth considering.
Dallas Mavericks: How the Mavs got on the outside of free agency The Dallas Mavericks were one of the hottest teams talked about once the season ended with rumors about interest from nearly every major free agent. Now, t…
Into The 2019 NHL Unrestricted Free Agent Class: Mats Zuccarello Mats Zuccarello proved to the Dallas Stars and the NHL that he has a lot more game left. How much will that mean in free agency? We take a closer look.
2019 NHL Entry Draft Prospect Profile: Alex Newhook Team: Victoria Grizzlies. Position: Center. Stats: 53 games played, 38 goals, 64 assists, 102 points, 21 PIMs. NHL Central Scouting ranking: 13th. Comparable NHL player: Matt Duchene. One of the most important rules for scouting is to not base your entire opinion of a prospect on just one viewing.
Free Agent Profile: Matt Duchene That's a serious chunk of change for what would be a second-line center, but given what we know about Dallas's depth and what I would characterize as a relatively short remaining window of opportunity for the Benn/Seguin / Klingberg core, would Duchene be worth the salary cap space?
D'Angelo Russell would vault Dallas into an offensive powerhouse He requires a big piece of the pie, but 23-year-old All-Stars don't hit the open market often, and Russell could be an opportunistic signing that propels Dallas into an offensive juggernaut.
2019 NHL Entry Draft Prospect Profile: Bobby Brink Team: Sioux City Musketeers. Position: Right Wing. Stats: 43 games played, 35 goals, 33 assists, 68 points, 22 PIMs, +23 plus/minus rating. NHL Central Scouting ranking: 19th. Comparable NHL player: David Pastrnak. Can we talk about stats? For just a second or two?
Dallas Stars Daily Links: It's Draft Week! 18, they have to make that one count:. Dallas still holds three late-round picks, and one of them could very well end up being a late-round steal. It goes without saying, however, that hitting on those late picks is much, much harder:. You can read more from Matthew DeFranks here.
Mavs draft regrets of 1990s: Remember when Dallas took Samaki Walker over Kobe Bryant? It happens to every team. Sometimes, it's fate dealing a crummy batch of cards to you. Other times, it's a self-inflicted wound, like not paying enough attention to what's available. And, of course, sometimes stuff just happens.
