Our All-Time Top 50 Dallas Stars are now up

We know…this process of developing the Top 50 All-time of every major franchise is taking us some time, but we aren’t on a time limit are we?

We here now completed the top 50 for the Dallas Stars.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following:

  1. 1. Advanced Statistics, such as Cori and Point Shares.
  1. 2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Hockey League
  1. 3. Playoff accomplishment.
  1. 4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2017-18 Season.

The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in our news. They are:

1. Mike Modano

2. Sergei Zubov

3. Marty Turco

4. Derian Hatcher

5. Jamie Benn

So which team is up next?

We go back to the diamond and look at the top 50 Kansas City Royals of all time.

Look for that in a couple of months.

As always, we here at thank you for your support.

The Dallas Stars will retire Sergei Zubov's number next year

Regular visitors of know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players and executive.  As such, it is news to us that Dallas Stars have announced that they will be retiring the number #56 of Sergei Zubov next season.

This announcement follows Zubov’s Hockey Hall of Fame selection this summer.  

The Defenseman would join the Stars after being traded from the Pittsburgh Penguins before the 1996-97 Season, and he would stay there until he left the NHL after the 2007-08 campaign.  With Dallas, Zubov would go to three All-Star Games, and would be chosen as a Second Team All-Star in 2005-06.  The Russian blueliner would finish in the top ten in Assists three times and he would lead the NHL in Defensive Point Shares in 2000-01.  He was a vital member of Dallas’ Stanley Cup win in 1999.

As a Star, he would play in 839 Games with 549 Points and a Plus/Minus of +109.

This makes Zubov the second former Dallas Star player to have his number retired.  He joins Neal Broten (#7), Bill Goldsworthy (#8), Mike Modano (#9), Bill Masterton (#19) and Jere Lehtinen (#26).

We here at would like to congratulate Sergei Zubov for earning this honor.
