NHL.com continues its preview of the 2013-14 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.
No team saw more wholesale changes over the summer than the Dallas Stars. After missing out on the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the fifth consecutive season, the team's new ownership decided to make major changes, starting with the hiring of Jim Nill as general manager. After years of serving in the front office of the Detroit Red Wings, Nill's first act as Stars GM was to hire longtime Buffalo Sabres fixture Lindy Ruff as his coach.
The changes didn't stop there, and the end result is a roster featuring a mix of young skill players and experienced veterans.
