If you follow the Stars closely, then you already KNOW that Esa Lindell is an ELITE defenseman. But TONIGHT I will explain to those who aren't Stars fans just how sick this guy is.
A Thank You to the team that gave me a lot this year.
To the people on Twitter saying the Stars need to trade Esa Lindell: You're wrong.
John Klingbeg's injury raised questions about the Dallas Stars' defense and how it would be without their number 1 defenseman. Esa Lindell has shoved all those questions right back in doubters' faces.
Dallas is still thought of as the team that missed playoffs 5 years in a row. The team that crashed season after season and it a "lost sport" in the football capital of America. But let me tell you this: This team, this season is different. John Klingberg is one of the reasons why.
Last season, it seemed as if the Stars had a solid spot in the 2017-2018 playoffs.. that is until they dropped 8 games in a row eliminating them from first round contention. The extended summer felt disheartening, not only for fans I'm sure.
