A quality 4th line the Stars haven't had in quite some time. It also gives the Stars the chance to rest Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen and Brenden Morrow a bit, as Tucker is also a respected penalty killer.

Lessard isn't all that expandable as we're rather thin on quality right wing prospects in the system, in fact, Lessard is the only one who's about offense. Erskine is very expandable with Jancevski, Nickerson, Fistric and Grossman.
this is another situation that has to change if there is a salary cap. the likely number will be $38m to $40m. Dallas will have to cut to get their, but regardless in the salary cap world the days of 4th line centers making million dollar salaries are over.
