A Motivated Tyler Seguin Visits Boston Tomorrow

from Michael Grange of Sportsnet,

Tyler Seguin will always consider Boston as something more than just another NHL city, but the question is:  How will his first NHL city will come to think of him?

As the prodigal party boy the Bruins were better off cutting ties with while the cutting was good? Or as the latest elite NHL talent the Bruins cut adrift only to watch star in another market?

Tuesday Seguin and the Dallas Stars roll into TD Bank Garden for the first time since the controversial off-season trade. He doesn’t know what to expect.

“I’m not sure if I’ll get booed or if I’ll get a little applause my first time out there or whatnot,” Seguin says. “But I’m definitely excited about going back home.”

And not just because he gets to see what he describes as “a ton” of friends he made in Boston over three seasons there. It’s his first chance to stick it to an organization that drafted him, signed him to a six-year, $34.5-million contract extension and then smeared him on his way out the door.

Jack Campbell May Make His NHL Debut Tonight Against The Ducks

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Stars coach Lindy Ruff said injured goalie Kari Lehtonen (lower body) is not ready to play and will not be activated from IR on Sunday. That means the Stars have a choice between playing Dan Ellis on a quick back-to-back or giving Jack Campell his NHL debut.

While Ruff would not say what his choice is, it’s pretty clear Campbell is playing tonight.

The 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft, Campbell has carried high expectations for a while. He’s been a big game goalie in his career, helping the United States to World Cup gold in 2010 and bronze in 2011. He was named top goalie at both of those tournaments....

In his step up to the pros, he’s been solid. He went 19-13-3 last season for the Texas Stars (AHL) and posted a 2.65 GAA and .905 save percentage. His biggest challenge has been that he’s an extremely high energy player. He works out with intensity, and he plays with intensity, and the Stars have been trying to find a balance in his approach.

Every Dollar Counts

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

In just one summer, the Stars added $8.2 million to their payroll and climbed to within $2.2 million of the NHL’s $64.3 million salary cap.

And yet they sit 19th among 30 teams in salary cap ranking.

Welcome to the 2013-14 season, where a lockout-induced reign of parity could help determine everything from final standings to the level of activity on the trade market. And nobody is really sure how it all will play out.

“It’s a different world, for sure, and you have to really do your planning,” said Stars general manager Jim Nill. “There are a lot of details that could end up being very important at the end of the season.”

Lindy Ruff On Protecting The Goalie

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

“It doesn’t matter to me who is on the ice,” Ruff said, delivering maybe the most important message of the discussion. “If someone is taking advantage of your goaltender, you all respond…all five guys respond.”

Old school? Ruff was asked.

“Old school,” he said. “Everbody ropes, everybody rides.”

Saturday’s cross-check of Kari Lehtonen was confusing on a lot of fronts _ like why isn’t it a penalty when you cross-check a goalie in the head? But if one thing comes out of the incident, it will be that the Stars have a very clear message on what to do if someone messes around with their goalie.

more on protecting the goalie but first watch the cross-check to Lehtonen's head below from the Caps/Stars game a few days ago.  The goal was waived off due to goalie interference but no penaly was called on Backstrom.
