There was some question about Hanley's availability for tonight's game since he was put on waivers Monday and available to be claimed by another team. But he cleared waivers just as the Stars' morning skate was concluding at the AAC. Hanley is available to be sent down to the AHL and likely will be in the near future to open a roster spot as John Klingberg (hand injury) gets ready to come off injured reserve, but he is going to stay for now and play tonight.

Since he cleared he’s safe for a bit, I think.

How long after a guy clears waivers are you allowed to send him down?

I’m interested to see how Rads does on the first 4th line.

Val couldn't score a goal if the lives of every living member of his family was on the line. Is there an advanced stat for "makes above average plays that actually wind up having exactly zero impact on the game?" Cuz he's tearing that one up tonight.

So Bishop gets clipped in the face and goes down like a sack of potatoes, then they leave him in the game for five minutes before deciding it might be a good idea to run the concussion protocol?

Oddly enough, if Polak would re-sign for the same cost, I wouldn’t mind bringing him back. He’s been fine and reliable enough, and having him as depth couldn’t hurt.

They should swap Dickinson and Shore so you can have Val-Dickinson-Gurianov line of all first round busts.

I think it’s too early to call Dickinson a bust. Wasn’t he a later first round pick? If so, third like forward is not a bad outcome.

Although that makes your joke not as good.

Botched. I thought they should have called it a 10 and a game. Clearly targeted the head and made no attempt to avoid.

It was their 4th game in 6 days, I think. Let's slow the roll here.

1. If they didn’t win that game, no matter who the opponent, or the injuries, the world might have ended. So good job.
2. Polack is not slow, like I thought he would be.
3. Dickinson is not even close to a bust. 29th, with the Boston pick from the Jagr trade. Thank you Jaromir.
4. Val is overfuckingdueski. Serious. :)

Val is simply not a good NHL player. Period. He's also not a good KHL player. I wonder if he would score in the AHL.

Suck it Reddit Stars fans.
