    The Dallas Stars staved off Nashville and Phoenix last year to grab the 8th and final spot in the Western Conference, only to see Kari Lehtonen let 20 goals go by him in a six-game series loss to the Ducks in the first playoff round.

    The Blackhawks had the same issue as everyone else in the Western Conference playoffs - a Game 7 loss to the eventual champs. It was an off season of spending in the midway.
