Team looking to change smoke and mirrors approach

The Dallas Stars nearly pulled it off. For 84 regular-season games and the first four of the playoffs, the Stars were able to use tireless work from their smallish forwards and the patience of-well, Bob Gainey-to frustrate opponents. In the second round they ran into the Vancouver Canucks, who used their size and a measure of the same patience to end the Stars’ first season in Texas, four games to one. “I think what we did this season worked well enough to camouflage our weaknesses,” said Gainey, the Stars’ coach and general manager. “In defeat, those weaknesses become more apparent and teams take advantage it.” The biggest shortcoming for the Stars was their inability to score first. They accomplished that just once in nine post-season games. “The story was written early in all of the…

Best of the best

Will the San Jose Sharks’ playoff run boost rookie coach Kevin Constantine’s chance of being named NHL coach of the year? It should, but it won’t. The Jack Adams Award was voted on by members of the NHL Broadcaster’s Association at the end of the regular season. We don’t think that’s fair. Playoff success alone shouldn’t be the deciding factor in judging coach of the year. If it were, John Muckier of the Buffalo Sabres would be out of luck.

Clarke departure linked to power clash with Torrey

Bob Clarke sounded like someone with the dream job last November. The Florida Panthers’ general manager had his expansion team winning, had made several shrewd deals and he was learning to wear shorts in December. “I don’t have players mad at me because of their salary or playing time,” Clarke said. “I’ve got one of the best jobs you can have.” So why, six months later, is Clarke about to leave his job to return to the Philadelphia Flyers as president and part-owner? Some of the answers are obvious. Clarke spent his 15-year, Hall-of-Fame career in Philadelphia before working seven years in the front office. Philadelphia always will be considered home to Clarke and his family. He also received a great offer from Flyers’ owner Ed Snider that includes a piece of the…
