I disagree. There is a third option that creates a headache: he thinks he's fine, plays a bit, but still misses significant time with injury. You know, like every season of his the past half decade or so. This means they end up paying both he and Khudobin at full cap rates plus upwards of half a season of Oettinger. Oettinger isn't expensive, but every penny counts for this team.

Maybe so. I think he's probably done, or close to it. He's not young in hockey years, and missing an entire year is usually a death knell for a career.

Gagree, he seems done. Too bad Jamie Benn didn't waive his no trade too we could protect Dicky. Seattle wouldn't have taken Benn either.

Oettinger is still exempt from waivers, yes? So send him down for the 10 games Bishop is off IR and call it a day.

'Bishop Kraken' is a pretty kick-ass cartoon villain name.

It's funny to hear Stars fans wail about losing Dickinson, when literally zero national-level articles have mentioned him even once as expansion fodder. For Dallas, it's always someone like Riley Tufte or L'Esperance.

Also no national level articles mention Dickinson because they don't pay attention to Dallas.

Exposing your Dick is generally a no no in the #metoo era.

Whoever will fill a bottom-six role for the Stars if they lose their Dick?

I bet Dick could easily fill a hole in the Krak lineup.

Gotta assume that the other one is the Avs (born in TX, raised in CO).

UPDATE: the list is actually three teams, and it is Chicago, Dallas, Florida.

I wonder what the contract is going to be.

8x8 is a safe bet.

I don't think they'd be so coy if it was only a bridge deal

8 X $8.45. That seems good.

Alrighty, so with Miro's new contract officially on the books, that leaves us with 5.8 in cap space now.

Dicksinon (who is the lead candidate now to be taken by Seattle) is still a contractless RFA, so no money would be saved by us in that scenario.

Seattle taking former lead candidate Khudobin would have given us an extra 3.3, but with him protected now, the only way we can add more cap space is to put Bishop back on LTIR for an extra 4.9 ...

So in theory, we'd still have a hurt starter, and roughly 10.7 to re-sign Oleksiak and add Coleman.

I personally think that we should trade Lindell LOL.

Miro also did Gaglardi a huge favor by pushing back the cash a couple of seasons.

They should absolutely trade Lindell.

The Stars are now paying him like a top guy. Time for him to start putting up more points.

I wouldn’t worry, guys who sign high dollar long term contracts here always increase their production once they’re getting paid.
