The 1-0-0 Vegas Golden Knights

from Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

When you and your friends order another round in the coming years and someone suggests a game of Trivial Pursuit All-Star Sports, remember the name James Neal.

He just became an answer.

A few weeks ago, the guy wasn’t even skating. A few days ago, it was uncertain he would dress for the season opener of the Golden Knights.

Now, he’s the man who forever etched his likeness into the pages of the NHL expansion team’s record book.

Neal scored both third-period goals in a 2-1 win against Dallas at American Airlines Center on Friday night, allowing the Knights to depart the franchise’s inaugural game victorious.

“To see how happy the guys were to start the season with a new team and a fresh start, we all have an opportunity,” Neal said. “I started my career here in Dallas, so it was funny coming back here.”


The Dallas side and condensed video of the game are below.

Dave Strader Has Passed Away

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars mourn the passing of television legend Dave Strader at the age of 62. He passed away this morning after battling cholangiocarcinoma, a form of bile duct cancer, for over a year. Strader is survived by his wife, Colleen, son Christopher and wife Karen, their daughter Sydney (granddaughter) and beloved Boston terrier Lady Stanley, son Casey and wife Dr. Mary, their son Charles (grandson), and son Trevor.

Strader's legendary television career was honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame on April 17, 2017 when it was announced that he was the recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for his outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster. He will be honored at the Hockey Hall of Fame NHL Media Awards Luncheon on Nov. 13 in Toronto, Ontario and his award plaque will be displayed in the Esso Great Hall at the Hockey Hall of Fame alongside past award recipients.

Known affectionately as "The Voice", Strader joined the Stars in the 2015-16 season. Following that campaign, he was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma and was limited to calling five games for the team during the 2016-17 regular season. In his return to the booth on Feb. 18, the Stars won a memorable game in which Antoine Roussel recorded a hat trick and Jamie Benn won the game with an overtime goal in a 4-3 victory against Tampa Bay. Following the game, Benn organized an impromptu team-wide salute to Strader, raising their sticks to the venerable play-by-play man who was stationed in the broadcast booth above them.  That game garnered two Lone Star Emmy nominations that were announced earlier this week.  Strader also went on to call a number of games for NBC during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Afternoon Line- Tyler Seguin

"There's a certain point when you're sitting in the off-season, we had a long one, you kind of reflect and you think of certain games and that was definitely one that stuck out to me individually where I look back on it and say, '(Blank), what were you doing?'

"It was a miserable last 10 or 12 games knowing we were out, you don't want to lose that feeling. And individually, there were lots of points you look back and say next year, 'I'm going to be better here' and 'I'm going to be even more consistent here' and 'I need to think more defensively there.'

"It all adds up."

-Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars.  Scott Burnside of DallasStars.com has more.

Stanley Cup Talk In Dallas

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Frustration can be a very effective motivator, if you use it correctly.

The Stars have been driven to make a run at a championship this year, in part because they have won one playoff series in the last nine seasons, and in part because they are coming off one of the most frustrating campaigns in franchise history.

And they're fine with that.

"We're not rebuilding, we said that right from the end of last season," said Stars president and CEO Jim Lites. "We've been rebuilding for the better part of a decade. We're through with that."

And so, as training camp is set to begin Friday in Cedar Park, the Stars have constructed a team they believe can win the Stanley Cup. That's right, a team that finished 24th in points in 2016-17 at 34-37-11 honestly believes it can win it all.

And with good reason.

An Important Year For Tyler Seguin

Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News did an online Q & A.

Is there really any merit in the "Seguin might be traded eventually" talk other than that it's just fun (and/or scary) to talk about? Are we discussing it just to help convince ourselves it won't happen?

It's something that happens in a lot of towns. Tampa Bay had the discussion over Steven Stamkos before he signed an 8-year deal that averages $8.5 million. The Islanders are having the same discussion over John Tavares. Heck, the Texas Rangers didn't want to get rid of Yu Darvish, but a big contract forced their hand.

Tyler Seguin has two years left at $5.75 million per. His next contract could be in the $9-10 million per year range. Are the Stars ready to commit to that deal when they already are paying Jamie Benn $9.5 million. It's a real hard question to answer.

The Stars have two years to make a final decision, but they also don't want to lose Seguin for nothing if they can't make the money work.

That's really the only reason for the discussion, but it's a pretty good reason. The Stars probably want to make a decision to sign an extension or make a trade by next summer. That's why I think this is a very important year for Seguin.
