Did we all forget about Rome as our #7? Or are we just talking about the future at this point?

And as I say that piqued's post appears.

Well if Dillon or Oleksiak make the team it's probably to play in the top 6 D. If Benn is the one that makes the team he'll probably be the #7 and bump both Fistric and Rome up to regular status. I think that makes the team weaker.

I was talking down the line.

I wonder seriously if Rome could be a buyout option not this summer but the following. I was surprised they permitted amnesty buyouts to occur for two summers.

EDIT: FYI ... you can use the two buyouts whenever you want or not all. It's not one per year.

Rome is cheap and a good bottom pairing guy. Kind of a waste to buy him out so soon.

It would be an amnesty buyout in the next two seasons so it's not wasteful in a cap sense.

No different then why I suggested Fiddler in the past. Dallas has so many guys coming up that the motivation to buy him out would be to open a roster spot rather than a financial motivation.

I don't know if that means scrimmage or if they'll just call up a few more guys since they are so close. He mentioned the Baby Stars should have days off (no games) during part of Dallas' camp.
Apparently he was definitely talking about full scrimmages between Dallas and Texas.

Another interesting angle that the GM has planned is a couple of days where both the NHL and AHL rosters will be on the ice together, with possible full scrimmages. The Texas Stars are playing in Oklahoma City on Jan. 13 and then in Chicago on Jan. 16. Nieuwendyk would love the AHL team to spend Jan. 14 and 15 in Frisco.

We want to make this as much as a training camp as we can, and wed like to have as much competition and real play as we can, so thats something wed like to do, he said.
This could be a way to cheat and have Sceviour in camp. You'd like just have to label it as a joint practice.

They should do a team like scrimmage like they did down in Austin the first year the Baby Stars were down there. Would definitely go to that.

Either Lites spoke to soon or Brandon Worley is wrong.

Worley just tweeted that there will be a camp competition between Nilstorp and Bachman. There is no plan in place where Bachman automatically goes down to start the year.

From a source with the Stars: The decision to send Bachman to Austin has NOT been made. There will be competition in camp.
Seems so weird Lites would say this, and then it turn out it's not true.

I know he's not the GM, but maybe it was to motivate Bachman.

Let's have some speculation fun. Who would you like to see Dillon paired with?

Personally, I'd like to see him with Daley or Larsen.

This is what it would look like (in my opinion)
Goose-Larsen
Dillon-Daley
Fistric/Rome-Robidas

I'm not sure how I feel about Larsen and Goligoski together though.

Dallas vs Texas for one or two days will be really helpful. Brings the entire organization together, everyone gets a chance to get looked at, and there will some players working really hard for a job on the NHL roster.

High level competition = Getting back into game speed for the NHL guys

I like the idea of the baby Stars and Dallas Stars together, but isn't even possible for Texas schedule-wise?

This screams a need for Oleksiak and Nemeth to get to Dallas asap.

Logic would tell you no, but it seems GMJN thinks it's in the best interest of the Dallas Stars to get as close to live game competition as possible.

Baby Stars just finished a 3 in 3. They have a 3 in 3 this weekend ending on Sunday the 13th. GMJN said he wants the team to be in Dallas on the 14th and 15th. They play a game on the 16th, and then after one day off they have a back to back on the 18th and 19th. They cap it all off with one more day off and a game on the 21st.

For those scoring at home that's 7 games in 11 days, and only 2 days off. The other 2 days would be spent going balls to the wall trying to make an impression on the NHL team. Those guys would be vibrating trying to get noticed.

It's a hell of an idea for Dallas, but man that's a tough schedule for the Baby Stars.

I still think it's a great idea ... I mean let's be honest, the Dallas Stars are the top priority.

Goligoski - Robidas
Fistric - Larsen
Dillon - Daley

Show off Fistric's physicality and defensive play, and then trade him soon. That defense is likely gonna suck this year though.

So what are the thoughts on Jason Arnott training in Frisco. Yay or Nay? Wonder if the Stars are thinking on signing him and letting Eakin get minutes in Texas. Taking him away from their roster would hurt and he is getting good minutes down there. Morrow-Arnott-Vincour could be a decent third line.

i like arnott, but i dont know if he's an upgrade over eakin on the 3rd line.

i'd consider him as a fourth liner though, if the market is really that bad for him.

No thanks on Arnott, at this point I think Eakin would be a better 3rd liner.

The more I think about this the more I feel the Dallas Stars signing Jason Arnott would be a step back for the organization. You can't preach how great your young players are over and over, and then block them with guys past their prime.

You've defined you philosophy with the fans ... there's no reason to do a 180 just before the season. A late 30's Jason Arnott who isn't in game shape and has declined steadily from each of the last 3 seasons is not going to provide as big as boost to the Bottom 6 as a fresher, younger skater.

Plus, I really don't even want to hear "leadership" come out of GMJN should he sign him. That's not an attack on Arnott's leadership ability. Dallas has plenty of voices in the locker room. Whitney and Jagr bring that, and Eriksson and Daley are emerging. They don't need another voice. They need guys that play the game at a high level.

I'm going to stop posting in the off-season thread since it's almost to a 1000. Must of the stuff we're talking about is interchangeable anyway at this point.

Jim Lites just said on Fox 4 he expects Dallas to host an open practice next Thursday (1/17). It will be an opportunity to sell season tickets and single game tickets so fans can pick their seat.

He also said 4 guys from Austin could play right now. Unless there's an injury on D, he most be talking about potentially 3 forwards starting with Dallas.
