    Dallas Stars History

    The Dallas Stars began life in the NHL in 1967, however, they were originally located 1000 miles away in Minnesota, under the title of the North Stars. The North Stars competed in the NHL until the late 1970s, when the club ran into financial difficulties, forcing them to merge with the Cleveland Barons, who were also on the verge of collapse.

    The North Star name was retained following the merger, which also brought with it a number of solid players, turning the North Star into a strong team, who would make the Stanley Cup final in 1981, losing to the New York Islanders.

    Over the next decade, the North Star would continue to suffer from financial difficulties, failing to turn a profit year after year. This led to the future of the franchise coming into doubt, with the clubs then owner, Norman Green, proposing a move to Anaheim only for it to be made impossible by the introduction of the Mighty Ducks.

    A redesign of the clubs’ logo in 1991 saw the North Star become the Star, and 2 years later, the franchise had moved to Dallas, the result of years of declining profits. 

    The Dallas Stars became the only NHL team in the state of Texas, and thanks to their success, they gained a lot of popularity with the locals in their first season. Such was the Stars’ success that they made it to the 1994 playoffs, where they would be eliminated in the second round by the Vancouver Canucks.

    Despite the newfound popularity of ice hockey in Texas, and the financial resurgence of the Stars, Green sold the ownership of the franchise to Tom Hicks in 1995.

    Under the ownership of Hicks, the Stars began to rebuild the club, focusing on putting together a roster that would allow them to compete for the Stanley Cup.

    The 1995/96 campaign was Hicks’ first as owner, and it would be a rather unimpressive one, however, it marked the year that the Stars signed future Hall of Famer, Joe Nieuwendyk, who would become an important piece in the team they were building.

    The Stars dramatically improved over the next 2 seasons, recording a club high 104 points in 1996/97, followed by a new high of 108 points in 1997/98, in both seasons the Stars would qualify for the playoffs, but lose before they could make the Stanley Cup Final in each season.

    Despite the Stars’ playoff disappointments, the 1996/97 and 1997/98 off seasons would be when they assembled the final pieces of their championship winning puzzle. The signings of Brett Hull, as well as future hall of famers, Sergei Zubov and goaltender, Ed Belfour, led to the formation of a powerhouse team heading into the 1998/99 season.

    The Stars went on to dominate the Pacific Division, ending the regular season with a record of 51-19-12, for a total of 114 points, which remains a franchise best. After sweeping the playoff quarterfinals, the Stars defeated the St. Louis Blues in 6, followed by a thrilling victory against the Colorado Avalanche in 7 games. 

    Facing the Buffalo Sabres in the Stanley Cup Final, the Stars convincingly won in 6 games to lift the clubs first Stanley Cup as a Dallas based franchise. The final was infamous due to an overtime goal scored by Brett Hull, which became a point of controversy regarding the leagues’ crease rule and would eventually lead to an amendment to the rule.

    In the 2000/01 season Stars followed up their title winning campaign with another dominant performance, reminiscent of the previous year. Winning the division, breezing through the first two playoff games, and once again, beating the Avs in the Conference Finals (4-3), however, history would not repeat itself, as the Stars lost to New Jersey Devils (2-4).

    The Stars remained a mostly strong side for the majority of the decade, often making the playoffs, however, they would never recapture the glory of their 1999/2000 season.

    The 2007/08 season was a return to form for the Stars, who finished the year 3rd in the Pacific Division, but enjoyed a very successful playoff run, which they would lose in the Conference Final to the Detroit Red Wings. 

    Based on the performance of that season, which saw Mike Ribeiro score 83 points, Hall of Famer Mike Modano performing at age 37, and led by their star captain Brenden Morrow, everything appeared to be looking good going into the next year.

    However, a year long ACL injury to Morrow would change the course of the entire season, and with it, usher in a long period of mediocrity for the Stars, who failed to qualify for playoffs for the next 5 seasons, setting a franchise record by doing so.

    During that time, the Stars were consistently failing to turn a profit, eventually filing for bankruptcy in September of 2011, and allowing bids from potential new owners. Current Stars’ owner, Tom Gaglardi would submit the only offer, worth $240 million, which was accepted by the NHL.

    Gaglardi’s vision was to rebuild the club by trading ageing players, focusing on recruiting well, and the development of young talent. However, aside from the Stars’ 1st place Central Division finish in 2015/16, they remained a lower-mid table, with their most recent Stanley Cup Final appearance coming off the back of an 82 point season, the 10th highest of the year.

    Following their surprise Stanley Cup Final appearance, the Stars slipped back into mid table mediocrity last season, finishing the campaign with a 60 point, 23-19-14 record for a 5th place finish.

    The 2021-22 campaign was a decent one for the Dallas Stars. As they finished the year with a record of 56-19-7. They made the Stanley Cup Playoffs but lost in the first round. They finished in 4th place in the Central Division.

    Dallas Stars Betting & Odds Preview 2022-23

    The 2021-22 season is over and we take a look back at the Dallas Stars betting history for the most recent season. We will provide more information in relation to the new 2022-23 season once information becomes available. In the meantime, have a look at the betting and odds information for the Stars before the start of the previous season:

    Following their 60 point, 23 win, 19 loss, 14 overtime loss 2020-21 season, the Dallas Stars finished 5th in the Central Division and 17th in the NHL overall.

    Heading into the 2020-21 season, the Stars were amongst the favourites to win both their Division and the Stanley Cup, but aside from a 4 game win streak out the gate, the Stars were a disappointment, winning just 7 of the next 29 fixtures and failing to recover. 

    The Stars only held a winning record against the two weakest sides in the division, the Blue Jackets and the Red Wings. They failed to perform against the top table sides, none more so than their 2019-20 Stanley Cup final opponent, the Lightning, who they beat just twice from 8 games.

    Despite such a terrible start to the season, the Stars did a respectable job to finish just 4 points from the Predators. If they can come out the gate strong next season then they should once again be competing for that 4th playoff position.
