"How do you deal with the problem? You have to make them aware that they are not good enough – with or without Jamie Benn and Mike Ribeiro in the lineup – to not be a hardworking team. That’s the message. They are just not good enough." "You have to work 60 minutes. We have to work 60 minutes every night with everyone in our lineup if we want to play in the playoffs. If we don’t, then we won’t play. That needs to be learned."

Glen Gulutzan after the Stars' 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay Friday night

Klingberg goes back to Sweden.

13

There was an article in site of Jokerit Helsinki. I won't publish it since it's in Finnish. But it goes like this: Klingberg goes back to Sweden, to Elitserien. Jokerit wanted him to stay next year, he wanted back to Sweden, so it goes down like this. His new team will be announced later. Good luck to him. Update: His new team is Skellefteå AIK.

SB Nation Officially Opposes SOPA

32

We usually keep politics out of DBD, but this is important and has everything to do with our blog and SB Nation. I'm sure most of you have heard of SOPA and the legislation that is in progress. This could have incredible effects on the internet world wide and threatens to take away many of the freedoms we've enjoyed. Today, many major sites are "blacking out" in protest of SOPA, a measure that is driven by corporate lobbying and is not something that is for the good of the people. We join that protest and we hope that, in this case, the right thing will be done in the end.

Per our sources at the game tonight (Brad...), Glen Gulutzan stated after the loss to the Red Wings that Jamie Benn has not been ruled out for the All-Star Game and could possibly play next week against Anaheim. That would be a 10-day hiatus after his surgery. Gulutzan also stated that Larsen should be ready for Friday's game -- so, are the Stars keeping eight d-men for now, or is someone else being sent down?

Tomas Vincour Activated; Wathier Sent Back To Texas

6

The Stars announced this morning that they have activated Tomas Vincour officially from IR and have sent Francis Wathier back to the Texas Stars. This makes Vincour the Stars' 12th healthy forward for now, meaning either he will play tonight against Detroit or the Stars will use seven defensemen. Wathier played 5:25 last night and recorded 3 hits. I'm betting Vincour plays despite not having practiced, but we'll see what Gully says here in a bit.

Just a reminder that Taylor and I will be out at the official Stars watching party tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe in Dallas. Stop by and say hello if you're in the area and watch some puck.

Stars trade Roman for Esposito

15

The Dallas Stars made a move in their minor-league system late Friday afternoon when they sent prospect left wing Ondrej Roman to the Florida Panthers in exchange for center Angelo Esposito. Both players were selected in the 2007 draft - Roman in the 5th round by the Stars and Esposito with the 20th overall pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Neither player will have to move far. Esposito is currently with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage, where he has two goals, three assists and and eight penalty minutes in 16 games. He also spent three games in the ECHL with the Cincinnati Cyclones this season. Roman has spent most of the season with the Texas Stars, where he has one goal and four assists.

Stars trade Ondrej Roman to Panthers for Angelo Esposito

Esposito is a center, but I don't know much about him. He was a first-round pick in '07. Does he have potential at the NHL level or is he an AHLer? Thoughts?

Ribeiro Still Not Skating; Out "A Few More Days"

2

"Ribs is still sore," said Glen Gulutzan today in Frisco. "He's got a significant injury there. He hasn't even started riding the bike yet so he'll be at least another few more days." The Stars play three in four nights here coming up so a few more days sounds to me like he's very likely out for Monday and Tuesday's games, and those are tough ones against the best teams in the league. With some luck hopefully he can be back for the three contests leading up to the All-Star break; winnable games against the Lightning, Wild and Ducks.
