Here’s a quote from Stars Tom Gaglardi on what he sees as the team’s needs as the Dallas Stars prepare to head off into the offseason.
“I don’t see a position that we don’t need to get better at. We need more scoring depth, clearly. Secondary scoring wasn’t there when we needed it. Our top line carried us there for a while, but once it stopped we weren’t able to muster up enough offense.
“I think we’ve got to look at our power play, finished last in the league and broke a record for fewest goals as a franchise on the power play. That’s a real concern. A lot of the power play starts at the backend.
“I love our goalie. We’ve got good depth there with the kid that came up, (Richard) Bachman. I think he did a marvelous job this year. There’s also Jack Campbell in Texas, so we’re in solid shape there and these guys are all on contract, so we don’t have to worry about that position.
“But I think we have to look at everything – our scoring lines, our power play and our defense. We want to get better. I don’t think it is any one thing. We’ve got to be a deeper team. I don’t think anything has changed. We were saying that at the deadline, we’ve been saying that ever since I’ve been here.”
