Dallas Stars Season Preview

Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi watched his team practice Friday and expressed optimism about the upcoming season.

“I like our team,” Gaglardi said. “We’ve improved our club from a year ago. We acknowledged our top six wasn’t as deep as it needed to be, so most of our moves were focused on improving that. I think we’ve done that. Obviously, it would be nice to have (unsigned restricted free agent) Jamie (Benn) here, and hopefully he’ll be here very soon. In the meantime, I think we have a deeper team and better top six. I expect our club to do better than last year.”

The Stars believe that the additions of Jaromir Jagr, Ray Whitney and Derek Roy provide a boost to their top six, and that Jagr and Whitney bring valuable experience. Both players have been in the league a long time and both know how to win.

“We went after established leadership,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “When you get guys that have won Cups and played 20 years, and you’ve got Ray Whitney, who is a real strong personality and a great leader for us, and you add it to the mix here, I think that is what (GM) Joe (Nieuwendyk) wanted to solidify.”
