The Stars’ management is unhappy with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn’s performance and they want it known.”We are a star-driven league, and our stars aren’t getting it done,” Stars CEO Jim Lites said. “It’s embarrassing, and no one writes it. Write it!” Stars owner Tom Gaglardi isn’t happy either and head coach Jim Montgomery vented his frustrations too during Thursday’s practice. Seguin has 32 points in 38 games while Benn has 30 points, so in a vacuum, it doesn’t look that bad. But scoring has been up this season, which makes their performances tame compared to the elite players around the NHL.
After all, there are 47 players right now with 35 points or more and none of them play for Dallas. Meanwhile, Benn is tied for the ninth highest cap hit in the NHL among forwards and Seguin is about to rocket up the list with his hit jumping to $9,850,000 next season.
