Dallas Stars 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

Dallas Stars 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

Last year, the Dallas Stars advanced to the Western Conference Final where they were eliminated by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights. Dallas made the playoffs in four of the previous five seasons and was in top-three position in the Central Division as the NHL All-Star break approached. Second year head coach Pete DeBoer has been a winner wherever he has gone and has vastly improved the Dallas offense without sacrificing defense. Dallas remains a team that operates in relative anonymity. Squares often ignore the Stars for bigger name brands, with the result of enhancing their wagering value.

Dallas Stars History

Founded as the Minnesota North Stars in the 1967 NHL Great Expansion, when the league doubled from six to 12 teams, the franchise moved to Dallas in 1993. When the North Stars couldn’t get a new arena, they decided to head to Texas. The Dallas Stars were a major hit from the very start and won the 1999 Stanley Cup championship.

When the Stars arrived in Dallas, it was at the height of the Dallas Cowboys dynasty in which they won three Super Bowls from 1992 through 1995. The Cowboys were bigger than life in those days, yet the Stars could carve out a niche for themselves. Dallas played to sellout crowds for their first several seasons in Big D. Although interest eventually waned on the Stars, that was due to a mediocre product on the ice more than a hockey problem.

In 2011 Tom Gaglardi bought the Stars after a year of negotiations while the franchise went through bankruptcy. Gagliardi worked hard to rebuild the front office. Most importantly, he brought back Jim Lites as the team president. Lites had previously served in that role for the Stars under previous ownership.

Gagliardi hired general manager Jim Nill in April 2013. Nill was an executive for the Detroit Red Wings before taking the job. At that time, the Wings were considered a modern NHL franchise in which Nill had a leading role. The management team has brought the Stars back to respectability and a berth in the 2020 Stanley Cup Final.

Dallas hosted the Winter Classic at the famed Cotton Bowl on January 1, 2020, in front of over 85,000 fans in a 4-2 win over Nashville. It was the ultimate testament to their popularity in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
