Full season bubble won't work.

The thought is next season will consist of more back-to-backs against the same team to reduce travel.

From Shapiro

“18. The Ottawa Senators announced they were buying out Bobby Ryan on Friday.
It wouldn’t stun me if the Stars were in the group of teams reaching out to Ryan in free agency and looking to the former Senators player as a replacement for Corey Perry with a similar games-played, incentive-laden deal.”

For a similar deal to Perry’s, sure, but he’ll get more that than that.

Perry's deal ended up over $3 million thanks to bonuses. It was a bad contract.

Counterpoint: it got Pierre MacGuire to notice us for more than 30 seconds this season.

Together, they cost almost $6.5 million to generate a Ludwigian amount of offense.

I like it. The bubble can either be gas or electric depending on the situation.

How do you feel about Gerard Gallant? He seemed to be the hot name when the Stars sucked before the stoppage. I don't know much about him.

I think Gallant would be perfect. Talk about a guy who always gets the most out of his rosters. He's apparently the second-most liked coach in the league (voted on by the players), after Cooper. Gallant took that Vegas team and had them absolutely FLYING in his first year.

But he also seems to butt heads with management. Florida literally kicked him to the curb, and Vegas fired him after something like a four game losing streak, even tho they were leading the Pacific (or close to it).

Well we prolly can’t afford Gallant now, so ...

What's going on with Mike Babcock? I see he is an unpaid assistant for the University of Vermont hockey team. Is he persona non grata after the stuff he pulled in Toronto? I'd have to imagine Nill's familiarity with him would lead to investigating the possibility.

Pass on Babcock. Also, I don't think he's PNG like Bill Peters, but why be in a hurry when the Leafs are paying him like $6MM a year to do whatever he wants?

I don't want Babcock. He's just a guy Lidstrom made seem special.

It’s also cheaper than a known coach with a reputation.

of not costing a lot, yes.

Keep in mind, Hitchcock was an internal promotion.

I'm thinking Bowness likely comes back on a 2-year deal. A few interesting wildcards in this calculus are:

(1) internal Stars budget constraints because of the revenue issues from the pandemic (both the Stars and Gaglardi's other businesses);
(2) uncertainty with respect to how the 2020-21 season is even going to work;
(3) conflicting desires to have some level of continuity in the coaching staff after a turbulent year and some level of long-term certainty.

Some ahl/cap updates




Some players contracts are more valuable when they make less than their cap hit.
Stars should look into trading Radulov, he doesn't have a full ntc.

Come home, Henrik. We drafted the wrong Lundqvist, and we’re sorry.
