Benn and Seguin are doing their thing, and Nichushkin, outside of that? There's not much talent to talk about on Dallas. Yet, here we are.

Maybe these kids will be NHL studs in the future, but right now? They're young kids playing at a top level of their game.
Dallas has been about as dominant as a young team still looking for their footing in the NHL can be. They remind me of the 06-07 Penguins, but less talented.

They really need defense, or this team will go nowhere. Their disability to carry the puck up ice, and play the man with pressure really hurts them in games. Last night they would get hemmed in their own zone for 1-2 minutes at a time. It's a game that again, I can't believe they won.
