Stars sign Jason Dickinson to a 1 yr contract

Postby Troy McClure » Fri Jul 06, 2018 11:48 am

$875k one way deal for Dickinson. Yes, a one way deal. That means he's on the roster next season.

There's a decent chance he's on waivers by the end of camp.

Good. After Honka and Gemel, no one got fucked over harder by Hitch's vet fetish than Dickinson. It'll be nice to see him play more than six minutes a game every other week.

I guess he has a shot at 4th line center if Hanzal is hurt. We'll see.

Dickinson is not going to be on waivers by the end of camp. And Shore is definitely going to get a contract. Come on people. They are not that terrible.

You need to score 40+ goals in a season, or else you might as well be cleaning the dumpster behind Arby's.

Shore I like a lot. Dickinson I haven't seen enough of to know.

There has to be some middle ground of expectation between:
(i) we need 40+ goals or you suck; and
(ii) scoring only two points in the NHL and not being all that good in the AHL is more than a satisfactory step in your development.

Dickinson had 18 goals in half a season in the AHL. When he was called up the first time, he was just under a goal-per-game and was leading the league.

Then Hitch happened.

I would like to propose a unit of measure by which we can rate the effectiveness of our prospects.
The “Janmark” represents a capable middle tier forward who can easily slot into the 2nd or 3rd line and produce satisfactory output.

For example, I would rate our forward prospects thusly:
Matthias Janmark at 1 Janmark
Devin Shore at .6 Janmarks
Remie Elie at .3 Janmarks
Gemel Smith at .2 Janmarks
Jason Dickinson at .015 Janmarks.

Good scale, but Janmark’s injuries kept him out for 1/3 of his career so far, so really Janmark = 0.67 Janmarks.

I can abide by your Janmark scale, but Dickinson should get an incomplete.

Also his whack injury makes things a little interesting. Janmark would probably be 1.5 on the Janmark scale, but his injury is scary.

Good scale, but what is Janmark in Faksas?

Faksa is a 1.75. He has intangibles.

He’s our Toews. Let’s give him $10 million.
