Close to league minimum. I was curious if the announcement would call him a winger or d, and they’re calling him a defenseman.

I think that’s a really good signing. He’s solid and you can’t argue with the cost.

Seems like a minimum-wage replacement for Janmark on the PK.

He’s going to be fighting for a bottom pair d spot with Hanley, Sekera, and Fedun.

Faksa's deal is done



As is the AHL deal for L'esperance

Great deal for Faksa at 3.25 mil cap hit. Less than I expected.

Stars cap space left.


Fantastic deal on Faksa, I'm surprised he didn't get more.

And because it's Nill, Faksa's deal has some NTC protections.

So if Seguin has surgery that takes him out for 4 months, does that mean we can put his salary on LTIR?

Pysyk --- Very good prove-it deal at the minimum salary and duration. A no-risk deal that gives the Stars flexibility as he can be used on both D and F.

Faska --- I was expecting such a deal, though I'm a bit surprised with the 5 years. Not a fancy player but useful in the crease, in the faceoff circle and for the PK.

No surprise to see Janmark go. We couldn't offer him a reasonable deal at $2M for the same role as Cogliano, Dickinson, Comeau and Faksa. In fact I would try a line with the Dick, the Cog and the Com. This could be splashy.

Execs Unfiltered: Thoughts on Hall, trades and every NHL team’s offseason so far

There’s been a lot of external speculation that the Dallas Stars will have to slash money off the payroll but so far the Stars have only been spending. The Stars anted up to get Anton Khudobin signed and got Radek Faksa on a long-term deal for a very reasonable $3.25 million per season. The Khudobin signing might have been longer than people wanted but there’s no denying the fit in Dallas.

“He’s a good fit,” said an exec. “You sit there and would you rather that deal be two years? Yeah. But it had to be three years to get it done and he deserved it.”

It didn’t make headlines but another executive highlighted the signing of defenseman Mark Pysyk for one year at $750,000.

“Pysyk for 750? Pysyk isn’t an All-Star but 750? That’s unbelievable,” he said.

We need a "remind me" feature for posts. I think the Pysyk signing is great. I'd like to be reminded of this post in 7 months when he blows coverage and we give up game-ending goal in a "win and you're in" last game of the season.

They’re losing some slowness with Perry departing, so this move could make sense.

Stars still need to re-sign Gurianov and Hintz with a bit less that $7M available. Even on a 1-yr/$1M deal, I don't see that happening.

Stars can send Fedun down to the AHL or any other number of similar moves to clear up some minimal cap space. Also, I don't think Hintz and Gurianov are going to get big money.

Make sure to pay Hintz and Gurianov enough that you won’t be able to afford to match when someone offer sheets Miro next summer.

If we have to have one old guy, I'd prefer Thornton over Perry. Jumbo had more points and seems to drive play more than Perry did.

Thornton just signed with HC Davos.

Edit, I guess it doesn’t preclude him from signing with an NHL team later. Which will allow teams to evaluate his old age.

It fact it's only during the NHL off-season. He already played there twice during the previous lock-outs and met his wife there. It's all benefit for Davos because Thornton has the swiss passport and the club doesn't need to activate an additional license for him.

Perry was able to do great things when the puck landed on his stick near the net, but he otherwise was just a dumb penalty machine. If Thornton can bring the immobile puck magic and stay out of the box, it's an upgrade.

Good price for the team's best goal scorer. $2.55 per year
