In every sense of the word Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are the future of the Stars.

Benn 24 was just named captain while Seguin 21 was acquired in a trade with the feeling he will be the team’s No. 1 center for the next decade. Benn has four years remaining on a five-year deal that averages $5.25 million. Seguin just started a six-year deal that averages $5.75 million.

They are the combined “face of the franchise” in terms of success and sellouts and both management and fans would love their runaway relationship to start with an explosion of points and praise.

But that hasn’t happened yet.

Benn and Seguin have been just OK in their first two NHL games together. Following a preseason when the duo appeared electric at times they have only waded into regular-season competition. Each has an assist each is even in plus-minus and the two have a combined six shots on goal.

Mix in the fact Seguin is winning just 32.2 percent of his face-offs (10-of-31) and you see there’s room for improvement.

Seguin’s face-off numbers however reveal a lot for both players. Seguin played his whole life as a center until he was drafted second overall by Boston in 2010. The Bruins were rich in center depth so Seguin played the wing for his first three NHL seasons.

Seguin took only 45 draws in 2012-13 and 106 in 2011-12 so he still has to learn the intricacies and artistry of winning them at the NHL level. Just as he has to get used to learning the subtleties of playing center again.

Likewise Benn played left wing in junior hockey and in the AHL and he was switched to center for the past three seasons with the Stars. Now he has to adjust to playing left wing again.

“It’s a learning experience” Benn said. “You just have to go play games and you learn something new every game. We both played these positions before so it comes back quicker but we still have to get to know each other.”

Seguin said he has seen progress but knows that the challenge is difficult.

“It won’t happen overnight” he said. “We have to play a lot of games and get used to each other and just learn where the other wants to go or where they want the puck. That just takes time.”

Seguin was one of the top shooters playing wing in Boston. He led the team with 161 shots on goal in 48 regular-season games in 2012-13 ranking 10th in the NHL. So he’s clearly looking to pass first with only two shots in his first two games.

Benn meanwhile appears to be shooting the puck more. He had 19 shots on goal in five preseason games and finished with four goals in exhibition play. He would like to increase those totals in the regular season.

“Definitely I want to shoot more” he said. “But I think both of us just need to find what works.”
