Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 145: Needles And Pins

The waiting is the hardest part. Wes and Taylor talk headlines on the cusp of the Stars’ preseason.

We’re about to go from zero to hockey in a period of mere days. What will you do? ...What will you do?

Wes and Taylor sat down to discuss forwards and line combos, but a sudden outbreak of actual Dallas Stars headlines gave them even better things to talk about. Among the topics:

  • How should fans interpret Saad Yousuf’s money quote in The Athletic that Tyler Seguin “only require[s] acupuncture every 36 hours”?
  • How much should we read into David Satriano’s assertion at that Ben Bishop “likely will be healthy”?
  • How much more does Miro Heiskanen have to do to impress the hockey men who create meaningless rankings and vote on the Norris Trophy?
  • How much unseen work goes into the maintenance of a professional athlete, and how overwrought do we get when we don’t understand that context?
  • How much of getting healthy is really about getting rested?
  • And how much will the return to a normal, non-punishing, non-COVID schedule help?/

All this, plus a fan question and a free review of the league’s long-term injured reserve rules – what more could you possibly want? Answer in the comments, because right now, we’re Stargazing.
