The Stars have signed a new deal with Victory+, which will allow all fans in their regional broadcast zone to watch every single one of their games for free.

With the increase in streaming services over the last several years, more and more people have been making the switch from television to the digital world to watch NHL games. Now, Stars fans will be able to watch every single game of their team for free, and Gary Bettman is furious as he's expected to lose millions in revenue.
The Dallas Stars announced a new streaming service on Monday that will allow the team to stream all regional games for free starting next season.

It will be interesting to see how other teams react to this latest development. Will a snowball effect begin where other teams do what the Stars have just done?
If that's the case, Bettman will not only lose millions, but rather billions in lost revenue. It's no question that free streaming will grow the game among fans, but will Bettman be willing to risk all that money for the sake of fan interest?

Bettman has historically been known to step in and make changes when things haven't gone his way, so it will be interesting to see how long this free streaming service the Stars have launched lasts, as Bettman's pockets may start emptying a little too much for his liking.
