Dallas has the money to make the splash they so desperately need....

Lets look at some facts guys.

What do the Stars need?

They need a 2nd line Center. They Need a Top end Defense men. They need a Quality Back up Goal Tender. and a Forward.

What catches your fancy?

Everyone has the thoughts on who fits where and when. But lets look at some things before I get into what would work and not.

With Ray Whitney, Vernon Fiddler, Chris Mueller and Tim Thomas gone this creates some space on the cap.

Dillion, Roussel and Eakin needing to be resigned this year.


Next year Horcoff, Cole, Peverlay and Gonchar all coming off the books saving a whopping total of 20 million dollars.

This could get interesting, The Cap got bumped up to 71 million dollars. Dallas is currently 20+ under the cap.

So what do you do?

1st things 1st. What do you do for the best of the team? Do you try and go with a internal solution tot he problem that the Stars think they have?

That's up to them to figure out.

But what if we trade?

Jason Spezza is the hot commodity so is Ryan Keslar.

Top FA I would look at are Paul Stasney and Mikhail Grabovski

SO with all this said what should the Stars Do???

Offer up a package for Jason Spezza and Make an offer to both Paul Stasney and Mikhail Grabovski on a first come first serve kinda deal.

Meaning if 1 of them except the other deals get pulled off the table.

a Fair deal for Spezza (1. a contract extension atleast 4 yrs) Sergei Gonchar, Scott Glennie, Alex Chaisson and a 2nd round pick. This would help the Senators with the Cap hit and the Stars as well.

Paul Stasney offer him a 5 year deal worth around 7 million per deal. 35 million total


Mikhail Grabovski offer him around 3.5 million per over 3 years with a buy out on the last year

Who ever excepts first is the winner.

Defense men

Im honestly contacting the Sabres and asking them about Tyler Myers. If they would be willing to except a decent trade I would jump at it. I mean he would be the only guy besides Matt Niskanen I would be looking at.

A forward

Ales Hemsky or Mason Raymond would peek my intrest

a Goalie thats a decent back up

in house stop bringing in these over glorified back ups and let one develope
