Owner Tom Gaglardi talks Stars\u2019 season so far, Ryder-Cole trade, realignment and more

I talked with Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi Tuesday afternoon about the team’s play so far this season, the recent trade for Erik Cole, next month’s trade deadline and more. Here is a transcript.

On the team’s play so far this season

“I’d say average. I think we are where I thought we might be. We let some games slip away that we shouldn’t. We had that amazing statistic of winning with leads after two, and we’ve let some of those get away from us. I certainly see improvement, our shots on goal count. The penalty thing is really disturbing, although I think you can argue we’ve done a better job of that of late. I like our team 5-on-5. I feel like we can play with any team in the league 5-on-5. It’s a little bit like our team last year, but we start getting into penalties. But I think we have a chance at the playoffs. We’re in the mix. But I would say it’s been an average result so far.”

On the young players the Stars have mixed into the lineup this season

“I think it is ten first or second year pros, which is more than any team in the league. It’s kind of funny because guys talk about all the youth movement in Edmonton, but we’ve got more first and second year pros playing than they do. I think that’s great. We’ve tempered it with some age and some veteran presence, and I think we’ve had some success with that. There have been a lot of games this year where the young guys have been our best players. I think that is promising. I am bullish about our future. I think our record could be better than it is, but nonetheless we are in games. And I hope some of the bad habits we’ve seen are starting to creep out of our game.”
