The Stars returned home very early Friday morning, following a less-than-successful five-game road trip. Though a 2-3-0 record kept the trip out of the ‘complete disaster’ category, bookending it with losses to division rivals Colorado

It seemed like a typical Friday night at Snuffers in Highland Village, Texas. There wasn’t a seat available at the bar as patrons chatted about the end of another work week, the movies playing next door at the AMC and the local sports scene.

The Dallas Stars had a good, if imperfect, week. They slid past a desperate Arizona Coyotes squad with a 5-4 win Thursday night, extending their win streak to three games and boosting their record to 4-3-0. That’s good.

It’s been more than six years since the Dallas Stars used their first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft to select a 6-foot-7 defenseman from Northeastern University.

The Dallas Stars are building a formidable prospect pipeline, thanks to the Detroit Red Wings.

WARNING: This article is grossly unfair to the Dallas Stars. It’s unfair because A) drafting 17- and 18-year-olds is a crapshoot, B) hindsight is 20/20 and C) you can plug in any other team name and write virtually the same article. Disclaimer aside, an autopsy of the Stars’ performance at the 2003 NHL Entry Draft
