The Stars once again failed to reach the playoffs, and it resulted in a major offseason overhauling. Dallas brought in a new head coach in Lindy Ruff, a new general manager in Jim Nill, and made the largest trade of the offseason to land Tyler Seguin from Boston for standout forward Loui Eriksson. In addition to the Seguin trade, Dallas was also able to land Sergei Gonchar to add punch to a weak power-play unit.
Others gone from last year's season-opening squad are notable names like Jaromir Jagr, who performed well before being traded prior to the deadline last spring, Brenden Morrow, the longtime captain who was dealt to Pittsburgh and remains an unsigned free agent, and Michael Ryder, who was an impending free agent and dealt for an extra year of Erik Cole in the spring. Dallas will largely attempt to fill the void left by the aforementioned trio (primarily Jagr and Ryder) from within the prospect ranks, notably Alex Chiasson and Valeri Nichushkin.
