Last season was a forgettable year for new Blue Jamie Langenbrunner. The club with which he began the season, New Jersey, had an insufferable start, and after he was traded to Dallas, the Stars slumped down the stretch and missed the playoffs in their final game.

Between the two teams, Langenbrunner had a combined nine goals and 23 assists in 70 games. It was a far cry from the 29 goals and 69 points he had in 2008-09 and 19 goals and 61 points he managed in 2009-10. In fact, the nine goals Langenbrunner posted last year was the fewest total of his 14-year career in seasons when he's played at least 50 games.

"Myself, I want to put last year behind me," Langenbrunner said today. "Before that, I had two of the best years of my career. Unfortunately, it was a tough one last year, but I want to come back and get back to the level where I was. Putting up some points, but also playing the game the right way. I think with the depth we have in our lineup, it should be able to come from a lot of different lines and take the pressure off one group to get it done."
