16. Dallas Stars

Previous: No. 22

Expectation bar: Matched

Dallas felt exactly like a team that would need a wild card to make the playoffs. Lo and behold, the Stars hold the West’s first wild card amid a two-game win streak. The difference has been great play at home, so they’ll need to improve on that 4-8-1 road mark if they’ll seriously contend.
