team. 119. OK, so this team looked really dangerous last year in the playoffs, especially to the Blackhawks. They have star power in Jamie Been and Tyler Seguin, they can skate and are pretty deep. They also still have two starting goalies. Jim Nill made a lot of great moves so far as GM, but that wasn’t one of them. The Stars have definitely taken a step back but it’s mostly due to injuries. Benn and Seguin are holding their own, but they’re not getting much help from the rest of the team.. 6-6-4. Previous: 23rd. Dallas Stars. 19
