We're rolling out a special feature this summer here at Defending Big D: Dallas Stars Play Of The Year. We want to put it to the Stars fans and the readers of DBD to determine just which play was truly the most exciting, the most game-changing of the season. We're going to break it down by month, picking a winner for October, November, December, etc before having a vote among all the winners for each month. We'll present a video highlight of each play and you -- the readers --- will vote on the winner.
We've narrowed down the field month by month, and now it's time to vote on the play of the year. Really, we should call it the "Jamie Benn Play of the Year*" (*with a few other plays by some other guys to make it seem fair...)
On with voting!! Tell us which is your play of year.
