Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 117: Are You For Real?

Wes and Logan ponder a killer Klingberg, Captain America’s superpowers, and the Stars’ emergence as — wait for it! — an elite NHL team.

NHL: Nashville Predators at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Stars are two games into a COVID-delayed season, and also two wins up on their perennial divisional rivals the Nashville Predators. Clearly, something is going right. Could it be that this team is...the genuine article?

Wes and Logan discuss the signs that point to the emergence of the post-2020 Stanley Cup Final Stars as one of the NHL’s elite squads. The evidence:

  • a truly powerful power play,
  • a John Klingberg who has found a new level of super-Stardom,
  • a Joe Pavelski who has not looked this good since his heyday with the San Jose Sharks,
  • and scoring lines that look more than capable of holding the fort until Tyler Seguin (and Jamie Benn?) can recover.

Will Wes ever pronounce Roope Hintz’s name correctly? Listen and find out!
