The ‘Detroit Way’ In Dallas

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

 If anyone knows about trying to build on the lessons of the Detroit Red Wings, it’s San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan.

Once an assistant under head coach Mike Babcock, McLellan was snapped up after the Red Wings’ 2008 Stanley Cup victory and named head coach of the Sharks. Since that time, he has built San Jose into a puck possession machine and pushed them to a 217-100-47 record.

So when he was asked if his old Red Wings bunkmate and new Stars general manager Jim Nill could help spread the message of "The Detroit Way,’’ McLellan nodded in agreement.

"I think you’re starting to see some of that there, with faceoffs and puck possession. It’s pretty easy to spot in certain areas,’’ McLellan said. "But I also think that Jim will do `The Detroit Way’ with a flare. Jim recognizes that your identity is ever evolving. He’s open to doing things different.’’

Valeri Nichushkin Opening Eyes In Dallas

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

The fact Valeri Nichushkin is the first 18-year-old to play for the Stars since the franchise moved to Dallas in 1993 tells you he’s different.

The fact he’s the first Stars rookie to score four points in a game since Jere Lehtinen did it in 1996 tells you he’s gifted.

The fact teammates believe he’s only scratching the surface of his potential tells you he’s special. Maybe very special.

“Val’s play continues to grow. For me that’s really important,” Stars coach Lindy Ruff said after Nichushkin had a goal and three assists in a 5-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday. “He made a couple of really good plays on those goals, and physically, he’s been dominating some battles.”

Nichushkin learned the game on Russia’s bigger rinks and only started playing in North America this season. That might have been a factor in his being held to two points and a minus-3 in his first 12 games. Since then, he has 13 points and is plus-12 in the past 15 games.
