Wes and Mark can talk about more than Wyatt Johnston, you know. Welcome to another After Dark edition.

The Dallas Stars are in the series against the Golden Knights now, in large part because Wyatt Johnston can put the team on his back now that he’s (almost) old enough to partake of adult beverages.

But what will they need to quiet the house in Vegas again? Well, for starters, Wes and Mark would like a sixth defenseman who can get more than eight minutes a game. But they have a wish list, and they’ll gladly share it with you – at the low, low price of about 36 minutes of your time.

You can’t sacrifice Round 1 while you’re planning for Round 2. Play the game in front of you. Let’s go Stargazing – brought to you, as always, by BetOnline.

Andy hey, let us know if you actually use this as pregame listening! Also, your rate, review and/or share helps keep us alive. (No pressure.)

The 2024 NHL Draft is over, free agency is in full swing, and the Dallas Stars are right in the thick of it. But are they making the moves that will matter next season? NHL.com contributor and DBD editor-in-chief Taylor Baird joined Wes and Mark on the first day of silly season to sort through the Stars action. On this week's episode of Stargazing, we present a wide-ranging conversation that included topics like these: why a Chris Tanev deal didn't (and couldn't) happen <li>what Dallas can do with three right-handed D-men,</li> <li>how the Matt Duchene deal fits into the plan,</li> <li>what to make of the Casey DeSmith signing,</li> <li>and ever so much more.</li> If you're fretting over fourth-line deployments, you actually may be doing pretty well. Let's go Stargazing. See if you agree. It's brought to you by our buddies at BetOnline. For future reference, is winning the division an amateur move? Let us know at Defending Big D, or DM us @WesALawrence or @KETibbetts on the short app. (We're there for you.) And please don’t forget to rate, review and share. Let's keep the Stars in summer.
