capgeek.com lists eriksson as a left wing. if there is a realistic option of obtaining him, sather should do it. he has the obvious chemistry with richards plus a cap hit of $4.25 mill for the next four years for a 30 goal scorer entering his prime.

with that said, i can't imagine the stars trading him for dubinsky + anyone.

If no Hall/Weber, then yes to Eriksson

Dubinsky + Sauer + 1st '12 for Eriksson is ok

Dubinsky + Fasth + 1st '12 + Bickel for Eriksson. Heck - they can even have Avery back as a "throwin" since they are paying him anyway
is not Fasth is a keeper + can still do deal with first option

As to:
"NY would have to add significantly...
Dubi, Hagelin 1st at the very least..."

big time NO at that price. Hagelin here to stay.

As to your first question - you are most probably right. Why make this move?
Yeah, he's putting up solid numbers and has an affordable 4.25 cap hit for 3 more years. It would take one heck of a package to pry him loose. Don't see us wanting to pay the asking price.

Yikes. That's some pretty shoddy reporting by that blogger (not your fault BBKers). It went from a question asked by a Stars fan to "Stars have interest in Dubinsky?" based on some poor choice of words.

Though that's the second time this week I've seen someone on the outside refer to the Rangers depth at center as a reason Dubinsky has been struggling. Not many people seem to realize he was being used as a winger for most of the last season and a half.

it would have to be a lot more than Dubi going back...this isn't a buy low type player...this is a buy high type player...he'd be expensive.

I'm willing to trade a 1st round pick. Would Dubi and a 1st get it done?

Smyth, Kubina, and Gaustad. Getting all 3 would make for an ideal deadline taking prices and reality into consideration.

Eriksson would be awesome, but why would the Stars do it? They traded Neal, but that's because they were desperate to add a PMD. They loved McIlrath at the draft. Dubi + McI for Eriksson? Don't see it, but stranger things have happened.

Definitely wouldnt do that. In fact they would laugh at Duby and a 1st. We're talking about a player who has hit 70 point that last 2 seasons and is on pace for just about 70 this season. Hes only 26 and has what I would consider a great cap hit on $4.25 million for another 4 years after this one.

They wanted alot for Richards last season when he was gonna be a UFA after the season and it looked like he wouldnt be back. Imagine what they'd want for Eriksson.

That "speculation" is no different than a poster on this board making a trade proposal. Nowhere in that article does Heika mention that Eriksson is even available. DeLury needs to be more careful, this is how rumors get started.

if i was to guess, id say the cost of Eriksson would be somewhere in the neighborhood of...

Stepan, A first, Kreider, and CT.

just a guess.

Seriously, so a Stars beat writer responds to a reader's question about getting Dubinsky, then a blogger links the article and says we should get Eriksson in return. Like OverTheCap said, this is no different than a member in here posting a random trade proposal lol.

how about no?

when we can sign parise next year theres no reason to deconstruct half the roster for 1 player .

if dubi and a 1st doesn't get it done, which it probably won't, then im not interested.

Too many young pieces going to Dallas for 1 player in both cases. Anyway, Joe N. just traded a young scoring winger in Neal last year. That probably means they're sticking with Eriksson and Benn going forward.

Who gives a crap how old he is, dude has 50 points...I also have no idea with what being old has to do with being a rental A more reasonable response would have been "PHX in 8th, will probably add not sell"

Would have loved to follow Weinman in the Twitter era
Zipay is a bit of an arrogant ****** on twitter. This coming from personal experience. It is almost like he chooses to take the most sarcastic route possible. However he is well informed which leads me to believe Whitney is a no no.

Yeah.. I agree. No sense in blowing up the roster for Eriksson. This team is built on chemistry and comradery and maybe people here just chose to ignore that.

Can Gaustad win faceoffs? Unlike most here, I see our "big" moves being minor tweaks like you have listed here. Perhaps a 3rd line guy that can win faceoffs and a veteran 3rd pairing d-man for added depth. As much as I'd like to "fix" our PP, adding a Smyth won't make much of a difference, IMO.

He is one of the best in the league and he is a grinder. Big body, hard to play against, good on face-offs.

Selanne is my top rental target. Not only is he a cup winning, work horse, goal scoring machine, he's also a right handed shot. Our PP could use that. Oh, and he's a PP beast as well which we need. We could actually play an effective umbrella on the PP with Selanne on one end and Gaborik on the other. I would have Stepan and Gaborik down low, Selanne and Richards up high, and MDZ at the top of the umbrella.

Smyth is probably my #2 target. He'd give the PP a different look with his butt parked in front of the crease. Generally is a great competitor, doesn't take off during the playoffs. Solid addition.

Whitney is also intriguing. Also a right handed shot. Also a cup champion. PP contributor. A Selanne light. Probably tied with Smyth as a #2 target.

I think getting a guy like Gaustad would do alot more then people realize. Winning face offs is a part of hockey that so many people take for granted. Having a guy who can take and win crucial faceoffs could mitigate the fact that this team does not have a top 10 offense.

Selanne is another guy I would love to bring in. But again, what worries me is that this team's success is hinged in its chemistry and bringing in guys like Selanne/Smyth or Gaustad would hinder that chemistry.
