That'd be the least of my concerns. It's a business and he was cold and calculating in his decision. It's done and I'm over it. I'm more concerned about the $6.667m hit till 2020 if he continues to play like he's played this season and combine that with the expected retardation in skills due to age, it just isn't worth it.

Interesting.
In the incredibly unlikely event that the Stars would trade for him, and somewhat less likely event that they'd sign him if he were Gomez'd, I'd really only like to see Draft picks/Change of scenery players in the deal.
He had his chance to resign, and didn't.
I'd hate to see (a) quality player(s) uprooted as the cost for his change of heart (Assuming Trade; NTC).
I bet, though, that if he came back, he would be totally humbled and **** and wreck shop.

Didn't want Richards to re-sign then and don't want him now that he may be under-achieving.

With Gainey on board, I am always anxious about a major ****-up happening via trade.

The Stars added an extra forward to each power-play group during a 40-minute session. Loui Eriksson and Derek Roy each worked at a point, a spot usually held by a defenseman.
Loui on the point may be interesting, but I'm not sure if he has the shot to get it through traffic when needed.

Up to 11th in the league at 19.5%

Curt Fraser, Jagr, or both?

Finishing anywhere close to Top 10 with the PP after last season would be amazing.

I hope they're practicing the PP this week.

How many more shorthanded breakaways against until the 4 forwards set bites the dust? Or do they figure out how to make it work?

Zero, they had better be changing it right now. If it was just shorthanded breakaways against I might have more patience, but when they can't win the faceoff, enter the zone with possession, or get a shot on net there isn't much of a reason to stick with what they are doing.

I didn't understand why they had Ciasson of Nazzarath taking a draw to start the PP.

I think you would understand if you did some research into career fo% of various Stars players on the 1st unit. Also if you thought about the kind of guys who generally take the 1st shorthanded draw and their career fo% you might come to some interesting conclusions.

Apparently both 1st and 2nd units continue to be 4 forward configurations according to Heika's notes from this week's practices. So that will continue for a while.

Giving up on it already might be premature, but my patience for futility is running out.

Minnesota was running a 4 forward look pretty well last night. We'll probably see it tomorrow night. Pominville helps make that work though, not sure we have a forward quite like that.

Too bad they don't track shorthanded breakaways against.

Hopefully the organization does. Those were both the result of bad play by the Stars and not so much hard work by Minnesota.

I think moving Whitney to the top unit was a good idea, and I hope minutes on the pp will spark his production. He had his best game by a long shot against Colorado.

Put the Kevin Connauton cannon next to him and we might actually have something to fear. I guess you could put Seguin next to him but a 5 forward unit would be bad.

How bad must Connauton be to keep getting scratched in favor of these guys on D?

verteranocity for the win. Can someone explain how invisible Garbutt has to be before he gets scratched?

A couple of years ago when the Stars set the franchise record for powerplay futility at 13.5 percent I thought it can't get any worse than that. 13.5 is looking pretty good right about now.
