The lynx Chronicle: Brighter future for a classic team

This is a classic retro Jersey of Ilves Tampere from the 1960′s. Source of picture: Third string goalie A more modern jersey looks like this Source of picture: Gamewarnauctions  Not sure how to compare Ilves Tampere with or what classic NHL team. I’d guess though that you could choose any team, between Detroit Red Wings [...]

What A Few Good Drafts Can Do

    Rewinding this franchise all the way back to the mid 1970′s, the North Stars were just plain bad. There’s really no other way to put it, unless awful was your choice of wording. Much like our current version, the franchise missed the playoffs in five of six seasons from 1974 – 1979. With [...]

Who Will The Stars Add?

The Dallas Stars did some major revamping so far this off season. From GM, to coach, to nice new green-based uniforms. But changes to the guys in suits and some fancy new threads on the ice won’t bring the once Dallas faithful back to the AAC, at least not for long. There are definite holes [...]

Close But No Cigar (The Story Behind The Stars And Vigneault)

  Well, it’s possible there’s cigars but there is no coach. Not yet anyways. The Dallas Stars had their man pegged and they pursued him hard. Former Canucks bench boss Alain Vigneault was the top choice and it came down to the wire. The Stars had a five year contract on the table for him [...]

Stars Hot After Vigneault

My sources say Jim Nill has his preference for the Stars’ new bench boss in his sights, and Alain Vigneault is that man. The New York Rangers have also been in talks with Vigneault as the two sides met up Tuesday. It’s worth mentioning that the Rangers have also been considering Mark Messier to fill [...]

Can The Stars Build A Winner ?

  The popular belief is that the blueprint to success is drafting that elite player atop the prospect heap to lead the charge. Without a doubt the Pittsburgh Penguins are the main root of the belief – and rightfully so. Drafting Marc-Andre Fleury; Evgeni Malkin; Sidney Crosby; and Jordan Staal from 2002 to 2006 certainly [...]

Stars can't have delusions of grandeur

The Stars have been pretty up and down this season – looking like a playoff caliber team one week only to look like a lottery team the next. So which one will management view this team as now that the 2013 trade deadline is just days away? Obviously the goal at the start of the [...]

So long Captain Morrow

Over the years we’ve seen the likes of Mike Modano, Derian Hatcher, and Neal Broten pack their bags for new destinations – and now another warrior who for years has pumped blood through the very veins of the Dallas Stars organization is saying goodbye. Brenden Morrow is on his way to Pittsburgh along with a [...]

Michael Ryder traded to Montreal

The Stars swapped veteran goal scoring wingers with the Canadiens today, shipping Michael Ryder out and bringing Erik Cole in. Ryder was signed as a UFA on July 1, 2011. He exploded for a career high last season with 35 goals, finding chemistry with Jamie Benn and Loui Eriksson for most of the season. The [...]

What should the Stars do with the veterans?

  There are three ways to acquire assets: via free agency, via draft, and via trade. Some teams attract the big name free agents – the Dallas Stars aren’t that team. Some have had the fortune (if you want to call it that) of drafting high enough to add high end talent to their lineup [...]
