Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars’ Goalie Expansion Plans

What should the Stars do with their goalies prior to the expansion draft? Senators and Capitals both get playoff wins, Goligoski had a 2nd-half surge, and the league needs to clarify goaltender interference.

As one fan commented this week about beating a dead horse. Mike Heika looked at the Dallas Stars goalie situation as it pertains to the Expansion Draft. Teams can only protect one goalie. So the teams with 2 good goalies like the NY Rangers, Pittsburgh and Washington will have to trade a goalie or risk losing one for nothing.

If a team does trade for a goalie they would have to protect him which would make the Stars an ideal candidate. The Stars could protect their new goalie and Vegas would not select Kari Lehtonen or Antti Niemi due to their sizable contracts. More here. (SportsDay DFW)
