John Klingberg Taking Driving Test


Fresh off his Snapchat victory from yesterday, John Klingberg is apparently taking his driving test this morning. Drivers of Austin and Cedar Park: keep a look out for a Swede. Possibly one with corn rows.

(AUDIO) Tyler Seguin Talks Stars Offseason, Trade to Dallas with TSN Radio


Tyler Seguin is currently in Toronto, working with many of the NHL's other young stars at the BioSteel camp, and the Dallas Stars sniper joined Toronto station 1050 for TSN Lunch today. Among the topics covered were the Toronto Blue Jays, the Stars goals for this season and how Seguin dealt with all the rumors that swirled around his trade to Dallas back in 2013. It's a quality interview, especially for the dog days of August, so take a listen.

Photoshop Fun: Dallas Stars Awkward Family Photo


Along with the addition of Sharp Dressed Man to the American Airlines Center playlist and of course the actual introduction of Patrick Sharp, one of the best things to come out of yesterday's Dallas Stars press conference was this wonderfully awkward picture of Sharp, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Jason Demers. There have been edits with additions of GrumpyFidds, sitcom titles andcats because of course there were. But there's still so much more that could be done.

We'd like to encourage that with a semi-official Photoshop contest. What's the prize? Other than our undying respect and maybe a place on honor on a GDT thread somewhere, we're not quite sure. But just think of laughs you could cause with a good set of edits.
