Dallas Stars Daily Links: Hoping “Something Will Get Done...”

Talks between the Stars and #91 have apparently progressed since Seguin publicized his frustrations. Plus, The Captain, new faces, and drinking beer out of the Cup.

While talks of trading for Erik Karlsson this offseason have certainly been enticing, I think that most Stars fans would agree that re-signing Tyler Seguin is priority numero uno at this point in time for Dallas. Seguin aired his frustrations with the front office a couple weeks ago, and evidently his words had the desired effect:

“There’s been some dialogue now since the last time I talked to the media at BioSteel Camp,” he said. “I’m hopeful something will get done in the next little while.”

While that’s not the most glowing endorsement of all time, it is progress, and it sounds like Seguin really does want to stay in Dallas (fingers crossed/knocking on wood/throwing pennies into a wishing well). To leave you with happier thoughts, he also said this:

“I think I’ve earned things in Dallas that made it more of a fit. It’s home for me,” Seguin said. “I still envision being a Dallas Star.”
