Few teams were busier this offseason than the Dallas Stars, who capped off a frenzied period with the summer acquisition of talented but controversial young winger Tyler Seguin. Most general managers know Seguin has talent in spades and nothing but time to development, but is his maturity hampering his performance?
Whether or not Seguin’s a distraction and a personal enigma, the Stars are willing to take a chance on him. They’ve stacked him up front with arguably their most skilled winger not named Seguin (Jamie Benn) and fellow young phenom Alex Chiasson, who scouts across the league believe could break out this season. Chiasson had 6 goals in 7 games last year and has netted 2 in the early days of this season. This year the Stars are focused on veteran depth, however. They brought over Ray Whitney, Shawn Horcroff, Erik Cole and likely future Hall of Famer Sergei Gonchar, a group of players who were much more valuable 5 years ago, but still pack a punch today.
The Stars also feature massive Russian rookie Valeri Nichushkin, who at 6’4, 202 pounds will only grow bigger as he gets older. The 18-year-old will certainly have a lot to learn from guys like Whitney and Gonchar. This eclectic mix of young talent and established veterans will make the Stars one of the more entertaining teams to watch this season.
At American Airlines Arena this season, Stars tickets will be, on average, $129, a figure that’s up 13 percent from last year, when seats were $114.
