The Stars lack scoring
There is no denying that, when Jack Eichel is healthy, he will lead his team in offense.
The Dallas Stars finished 16th in NHL scoring last season, an unfavorable fact we mentioned the other day. Big D’s offense was a tad less productive in 2019-20, but stout defense and clutch moments propelled the Stars to the Cup final. Regardless, many fans disagree with how the Stars are currently oriented.
We asked Twitter what the Stars need to do to win the West in 2022 and received a few replies along the lines of:
For Dallas, a transition to a more offensive-focused team starts with getting Eichel into a victory green sweater. If Jim Nill agrees with Stars fans, he is already (covertly) working out a trade for Jack Eichel.
