Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 130: Keep On Dancing

New, comment

The Stars are that team for whom nothing is a surprise, whether good or bad. Wes and Mark ponder this truth as the Victory Green Gang prepares to face the music, again.

NHL: Dallas Stars at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Stars have three games and only two points in the bag so far this week. But Saturday’s road war with the Nashville Predators gives them a shot at that ever-so-precious four-point swing against their closest #Disco rivals. Will they get the bounce, or will the bounce get them?

The only way to find out is to keep on dancing. Wes and Mark sat down for a heart-to-heart after the latest Tampa Bay Lightning shutout, and the result is the Stargazing in front of you.

In this edition:

  • How much of their destiny can the Stars control?
  • Is the schedule their biggest opponent right now?
  • Will Tyler Seguin, and a possible return to high-event hockey, arrive in time to make a difference?
  • Can Joel Kiviranta help goose the scoring in the meantime?
  • Can Jamie Benn keep up the pace – and can the team see a future for him at center?
  • What will the forward lines look like for the rest of this race?
  • And what does the future hold for the Stars’ pending free agents? (Jamie Oleksiak, looking at you.)

It’s time to get aggressive. It’s time for a meeting with the latest episode of Stargazing. (Yowzah, yowzah, yowzah.)
