Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 77: Regression Testing

New, comments

Taylor and Cody discuss Honka, goaltending, and whether regression will give as well as take.

NHL: Dallas Stars at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Last season, the Dallas Stars had a mighty goaltending duo in Ben Bishop and Anton Khudobin – so, naturally, everyone assumes they can’t possibly be nearly as good in 2019-20.

Or can they? Taylor and Cody look at the stats and make some educated guesses about what the Stars could get in net.

On the menu:

  • How much did the defense contribute to goaltending?
  • Which netminder is more likely to take a step backward – or forward?
  • Will the Stars get a decent return for Julius Honka...if they trade him at all?
  • What can they do to unlock Radek Faksa?
  • And what else should we look for as training camp rolls closer?
