So yesterday was a good day to be a Dallas Stars fan. Between Valeri Nichushkin and Jamie Benn's performances, the Stars' offensive leaders got some well deserved attention after the games.
Jagr's right: Valeri Nichushkin is going to be a star.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) February 13, 2014
A reminder that nine NHL teams passed on Valeri Nichushkin in the draft last summer. Silly wabbits.— Adam Proteau (@Proteautype) February 13, 2014
I presume "Nichushkin" is Russian for "flying train"— Bruce Arthur (@bruce_arthur) February 13, 2014
Wouldn't expect anything less. Short side cheddar @jamiebenn14 Congrats buddy— Adam Cracknell (@ACracknell79) February 13, 2014
Tollefsen has been a human wrecking ball for Norway but not a great investment is trying to hit Jamie Benn— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 13, 2014
@dstaples Funny thing is I was on the fence about Benn's inclusion on Team Canada. Sure looked good early, though.— Jonathan Willis (@JonathanWillis) February 13, 2014
