Dallas Stars 2010-11 Season Grades: Brandon Segal

Once again it's that time of year here on Defending Big D where we take a look at each player that suited up for 25 or more games this season (and are still with the team) and take a look back at their season.  What was good about it, what wasn't so good, and the lasting impression they left us as we go into summer.

2010 - Brandon Segal 5 5 10 0 41

Key Stat:  91  - Hits Segal had in his 41 games played which placed him 10th on the team overall in that category.

The Good:  The first half of Segal's season was actually pretty good as he provided some nice playing minutes in a third line role for the Stars.  While not counted on to be a point producer, he did prove some nice energy and physical play off the bench.  He also showed a flair for giving the odd lift to his team offensively as four of his five goals came with the Stars either trailing or tied in a game.

The Bad:  The energy he provided the Stars early int he season faded away at the mid-season point.  His ice-time diminished by a good three minutes a game and in January he cleared waivers and was sent down to the AHL Texas Stars.  He was recalled in early March once the trade deadline had passed, but by then he was more or less a warm body for the club.

The Bottom Line:  Segal is a UFA this summer, so don't expect to see him return to the Stars this fall.  Depth / role players like him are fairly common in the league and it's most likely the team would rather look internally to promote someone within the franchise to the fourth line spot he ended up playing at the end of the season, rather than bring in an unfamiliar free agent.

The Vote:  Rate Segal below on a scale of A to F (A being the best of course) based on his performance relative to his potential and your expectations for the season.
