Dallas Stars owner Tom Gagliardi thinks Kari Lehtonen could feel more at ease in 2015-16.
"I think it is pretty hard on Kari when we give him a night off and we never win," Gagliardi said referring to the lack of success from the team's backups. "Kari had an off year, and while we don't think that will happen again, our backups haven't been good enough since I have been here (became Stars owner in 2011). So we discussed the 1A/1B view because there are so few backups now." Lehtonen's understudies have combined for a 14-23-1 record over the past two seasons. The Stars will have Antti Niemi battle with Lehtonen for starts and they are hoping it makes both of their goaltenders better. The competition may take some pressure off of Lehtonen's shoulders, but it also might result in him sitting on the bench more than he wants to. Aug 11 - 10:12 AM
