The Dallas Stars are one of the toughest hockey teams to defend, carrying scorers on every line. Whether it's Jason Robertson or the rapidly rising Wyatt Johnston, the Stars can score at any minute. Having forward depth that rivals the Vegas Golden Knights will make for a difficult challenge.

However, it isn't just the forwards that are problematic. The Stars defensemen also get in on the fun, with Miro Heiskanen (45 assists this season) leading the charge. Dallas might prove to be too much offensively, even for a defensive-minded team like Vegas.
