When Coaches Have No Answers

I want to lead off this piece with something that should be obvious: the Dallas Stars’ scoring struggles are not solely on the coaching staff’s shoulders.

Currently, not a single veteran is on pace to match their expected career outputs this season. The only players currently meeting or exceeding point expectations are Miro Heiskanen, Roope Hintz, and Jason Dickinson, each of whom has roughly as many points as they did last year with 14 games remaining.

Add in Denis Gurianov (who, as a rookie, has no prior point of comparison), and that’s just four skaters who aren’t under-performing offensively.
