The Dallas Stars made some headline splashes signing Joe Pavelski to three-year $21 million contract in the offseason. That will make Pavelski a Star until age 38. Pavelski made the All-Star team last year so don’t expect him to slow too soon.
The Dallas Stars come into the 2019-20 season featuring a stellar goalie in Ben Bishop with a formidable backup in Anton Khudobin. This is a better tandem than the Blues currently have in Jordan Binnington and Jake Allen.
On defense, the Dallas Stars have probably the closest thing to match the Blues’ defensive core in terms of talent and point production in the names of John Klingberg, Esa Lindell, and Miro Heiskanen.
