Dallas to Grind it Out

The Dallas Stars are hosting the Boston Bruins tonight and I thought I would enter in a brand new team update, as I really haven't done one for them in quite some time.

The Stars will rely heavily on their number one goaltender, Marty Turco (Dieter). Turco opened up the season on Wednesday with a 4-3 loss to Colorado and will look to bounce back against the Bruins tonight.

The big rebound potential out of Dallas will be from Mike Modano (Dennis) and Brendan Morrow (Box 3). Both players suffered through injuries last season and should have it on their priority list to make up for lost time. Modano actually made it through the Sherpa's draft for quite a long time before being picked by Dennis.

The Stars, previously a free-spending team, are managing their books quite well. The active 23 on the team is worth just over $44 million, while Mike Ribeiro (Dale B.), when healthy, will be earning $2.8 million.
