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.
The Stars season may have ended but two of the players are heading over to Slovakia to represent their country.
A Thank You to the team that gave me a lot this year.
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.
