3 Things To Be Excited For...

Here are three things I am excited for as a fan this offseason and looking to next season:

1. The continued development of Nichuskin

I believe that we have only scratched the surface of what this kid is capable of. I know many will say he is not good enough to play on the top line, but neither is Chiasson. I think we need to keep Val up with Benn and Seguin so he can develop into the player he is capable of being. When he does, Dallas could have potentially the best top line in the NHL.

2. Player X

I think Jim Nill is going to make some sort of blockbuster trade this offseason and bring in a star. Who knows if that will be a Kesler or a No. 1 defenseman, but there will be a new face for the 2014-2015 season. Someone like Kesler could help improve the power play and be a legitimate #2 center, as I believe Eakin is a #3 center.

3. Not sweating it at the end of the season

I think if the first two things happen and there are no significant injuries, Dallas will secure a postseason birth much earlier in the season and will fight for seeding, not for a playoff spot.

It's a good time to be a Stars fan. As a kid I grew up watching the teams of the late 90's and early 2000's, so to see this team moving in the right direction excites me and I look forward to more banners in the rafters soon.
