The Stars have yet to ice their full lineup, but the way they deployed their lines through the first three games tells us quite a bit about how they intend to do things once everyone is finally together, which could be as early as tonight. Given all of the injuries we're going to ignore how Gulutzan used his guys Saturday night. The table you're about to see has the Stars forwards clumped together with their linemates. Shown is the offensive zone start percentage for each player and their Corsi Relative Quality of Competition (a stat used to measure the average quality of competition a player faces). The table is below in all of it's meaty glory, but we'll go through it bit by bit if you want to slide right past it for now.
