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.
#15 / Right Wing / Dallas Stars

|2010 - Jamie Langenbrunner||9||23||32||-18||45|
Key Stat: 432 - Games played in a Stars uniform by Jamie before his trade to New Jersey in 2002. In that time he scored 90 goals.
The Good: The moment he was brought in by the Stars, Jamie was looked upon to provide some depth scoring and leadership even with clouds hanging around him that he had well worn out his welcome in New Jersey. After a bit of a slow start, Langenbrunner did start to fit in well with his linemates.
The Bad: Jamie could just never fully gel with his new teammates and while no one expected him to light up the scoreboard, posting a mere three assists and going -3 in his final 12 games of the season has to be considered a flop.
The Bottom Line: There is no doubt that Langenbrunner's return to the Dallas Stars was a feel good story for fans of the club, but the good feelings quickly faded when Langenbrunner didn't provide the spark expected. It was made even worse by the fact that the Stars massive slump through February and March came with Jamie in the lineup.
The Vote: Rate Langenbrunner 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.
