It's a good time to be a Dallas Stars fan. Jason Robertson is officially the new Mike Modano. Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski have renewed our faith in Veteran Savvy with record-breaking performances. And Miro Heiskanen is still Miro Heiskanen. All this, plus Jake Oettinger, and the 2023 postseason looks like a bright light at the end of the regular-season tunnel.
And while it's technically possible for the Victory Green Gang to fall out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, it's probably time to start scouting Western Conference matchups. Wes and Mark are, as always, up to the challenge. In this episode, they discuss:
- why every first-round opponent will be challenging,
- why some will be more challenging than others (file under: just about any Central Division team),
- why the Stars should try to make a statement with every remaining regular-season game,
- and why the persistent specter of getting goalie'd fades during a playoffs series.
Is it true that if you say "Murder Death Kill Division" three times, Gabriel Landeskog will get a hat trick against you? Share your suspicions...with Stargazing. It’s brought to you by our sponsor, Greening Law, P.C.
