The Stars are 2-8 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The Canucks are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a losing record and 6-14 in their last 20 vs. Western Conference.

The Canucks have been fade material pretty much all season long as they continue this brutal losing stretch, and now they're playing a team in the Dallas Stars who they've lost 13 of their last 16 tries to. Not sure how you pass up the Stars and the cheap price in this spot. Vancouver has been dreadful all season.
