On the Radar: Avoiding the ditch

The formula for the Stars to secure a playoff spot is simple: Just keep winning

by Josh Bogorad @JoshBogorad / On The Radar

The Stars have been a bit of a mixed bag lately. On one hand, they head into Wednesday's contest with six wins in their last eight games. On the other hand, they've suffered two lopsided losses over their last three, and didn't look particularly great in the lone victory. Regardless, the win came over a St. Louis team they had been chasing all season. It featured terrific goaltending, opportunistic scoring, and a last-minute hold that vaulted them into the top three in the Central Division. It certainly wasn't one of their best performances of the year, but it was one of their biggest wins.

Their ability to get it, even at a time when they are not playing their best, has been one of the stories of the Dallas season.

On the Radar: Road rewrite

An important road win in the books, it's now up to the Stars to turn Tuesday's result into consistent success away from AAC

by Josh Bogorad @JoshBogorad / On The Radar

During Thanksgiving week, the Stars played three games in four nights surrounding the holiday. The trio of games were a microcosm of the Stars season through the first two months. Dallas went 2-1, winning both of their home games and dropping the one on the road.

That's been the story so far for Dallas.

The Stars have one of the best home records in the NHL at 9-2, and have won nine of their last 10 games at American Airlines Center. On the road, however, the script gets flipped. Entering this week, Dallas was 3-8-1 through their first dozen road games -- good enough to sit dead last in the NHL. The question has been asked many times, to many people.

On the Radar: Deciding the games

The Stars' best players are engaged, producing and showing off a new identity of confidence and swagger

by Josh Bogorad @JoshBogorad / On The Radar

On Tuesday night, the Stars began a five-game road trip in Denver. They went into it riding a four-game winning streak, hoping to extend the positive results in a building that has provided very few of them in recent memory. It didn't happen. Dallas lost 5-3 and their streak evaporated into the mile-high air.

Before time expired on the game and their run of wins, the Stars were a club making changes to try and spin the outcome. They switched up the forward lines, trying to get more production from throughout their lineup. An injury on the blue line necessitated a change to how the defensemen were deployed. And about midway through a one-goal game, during a commercial timeout, Ben Bishop suddenly left the crease in place of Kari Lehtonen. Afterwards, it was that move that grabbed the headlines.

There are certain times in life when you know you are about to have something, but still must wait to actually get your hands on it. Maybe you found your dream house and your offer was accepted, but you can't close for a couple of months. Or you finally booked the vacation you've been saving and planning for, but it's not until next summer. The excitement of what is coming can be exhilarating. You searched, you studied, you planned -- and now it's yours. You can't wait.

On the Radar - SUMMER SPLASH

by Josh Bogorad @JoshBogorad / On the Radar

When the Dallas Stars season ended, a challenge was laid at the feet of the organization. They knew it. So did everyone else. This would be the most important Stars offseason in recent memory, and unquestionably the biggest since Jim Nill took over as the team's General Manager. How would the team approach it? Three months after the offseason began we now know.

The Stars answered perhaps the biggest offseason in team history with arguably the best offseason in team history.

What the Stars have done in less than 100 days since last leaving the ice is the stuff of video game GMs. Need a new coach? Get the future Hall-of-Fame defensive specialist. A goaltender? Go grab a guy who was a Vezina Trophy finalist a year before. Want to shore up the blue line? Get a big, physical, defensive-defenseman who makes his living lining up next to offensive guys like the ones on your roster. Feel like bolstering the offense? Get an elite right winger to play with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Also add one of the top two-way centers in the league. While you're at it, mix in an intriguing low-risk, high-reward young forward to lead a group of depth additions.

If you saw a lineup that read Ken Hitchcock, Ben Bishop, Marc Methot, Alexander Radulov and Martin Hanzal, you might wonder what awards banquet you were at. Instead that is the list of additions to an already star-studded lineup.

Focus on depth

GM Jim Nill bolsters depth at forward in first day of free agency

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Depth was the buzzword as Stars GM Jim Nill plunged into day one of NHL free agency Saturday. Nill bolstered his center depth with the addition of Martin Hanzal, added more forward depth with Tyler Pitlick and Brian Flynn and then added some depth in the goaltending ranks with Mike McKenna.

Hanzal was the big prize of the day for the Stars, who signed the 6-6, 226-pound center to a three-year, $14.25 million contract. The Stars were already deep at center with Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, and Radek Faksa, but got deeper with Hanzal, who plays both sides of special teams, is one of the league's best faceoff guys, can play a shutdown role and score some goals. He tallied 20 last season in 71 games while playing for both Arizona and Minnesota.

"Anytime you can be strong down the middle, it is important for your team," Nill said. "We've been fortunate that area has gotten stronger for us as we've moved along. We've got different types of players, too. We've got some speed, some scoring, some big heavy bodies, some good checkers. We've got a good mix, and I think we can match up against anybody in the league down the middle now. And we've got a lot of depth in that position."
