Stars entering a stretch that can give them the respect they deserve
The Dallas Stars are no doubt the most surprising team of the season. But Dallas has yet to really earn the respect that they deserve. Yes, those that do weekly power rankings have them at or near the top, as they should, but the hockey-knowing fan outside of Dallas likely could care less about the Stars being so high up in the standings at this point in the season. This next stretch of games, however, could change that.
