Let Turco go unless he's willing to sign for $1 million and take a reduced role.

I was just going off IB's website, and he only has info for Fistric through 2009.

let's look at next seasons numbers for a second:

Forwards:
Brad Richards - 7,800,000
Mike Ribeiro - 5,000,000
Brenden Morrow - 4,100,000
Mike Modano - 3,450,000
Fabian Brunnstrom - 2,225,000
Sean Avery - 1,937,500 (assuming he's claimed on recall waivers)
Loui Eriksson - 1,600,000
Steve Ott - 1,425,000
James Neal - 821,667
Raymond Sawada - 750,000
Tom Wandell - 600,000
Krys Barch - 575,000
Toby Peterson - 550,000

Total(f) = 30,834,167

Defenceman:
Trevor Daley - 2,300,000
Stephane Robidas - 1,500,000
Nicklas Grossman - 975,000
Matt Niskanen - 850,000
Ivan Vishnevskiy - 846,667
Andrew Hutchinson - 550,000
Mark Fistric - RFA

Total(d) = 7,021,667

Goaltenders:
Marty Turco - 5,700,000
Tobias Stephan - RFA

Total(g) = 5,700,000

TOTAL = 43,555,834

It seems to me that the Stars first priority this off-season should be re-signing Sergei Zubov and Jere Lehtinen, and depending on what those two players sign for (with a potential value of 0 if they both retire or sign somewhere else) there is potential for further significant upgrades to an already strong lineup.

but of course the main problem (as laid out in the first post) is that we have a number of good young players we need to re-sign in the summer of 2010. So I guess the question becomes is it worth potentially sacrificing one or more of these players to make a large free agent aquisition and by doing so increasing our chances of winning the cup next season?

I would say that unless Zubov retires this season we should roll with what we have already - our only moves in the off-season should be potentially re-signing guys like Brian Sutherby, Joel Lundqvist, and the RFA's (both of whom I think can be key contributors in the future if given a chance to play). If Zubov does retire I think we need to look at bringing in Bouwmeester to anchor the defense core, despite the fact that the large cost of doing so may make it impossible to retain the services of all of our RFA's..

I dont think they will are should sign Sergei Zubov back. He has had two season where he has had a season ending injury and he started in playoffs. He isnt worth the money that we are paying him to get hurt. If he will take a reduced salary by a long shot I think they should go for it and use his veteran leadership to help us out but we need to find a young prime d-man to take the number one role. Dont get me wrong zubov is still a beastly player, he isnt worth getting hurt. I hope to see him back but for a reduced salary. Now for Jere Lehtinen I say they should resign him for a decent amount. He is an awesome leader on the team. dont be hating my view its just view.

Other than that I really hope to see the stars draft a young good player.. Who will play his rookie season at 18-19 .

TxDude has argued before Zubov should not be re-signed due to his age and inability to stay healthy. I also believe he's indicated he wants the team to save the money for Zubov and spend it on another d-man.

Now, just what was he trying to write in the quoted excerpt, I have no idea.

Zubov won't sign until he is 100% healthy. Hopefully that will be a little later in the year (Decemeber/January) saving Dallas some cap space.
