Simple question: What's his value?

I don't know but I think Dallas would like to hold on to him.

He's valued as a potential top pairing defenseman. He's part of Dallas's core now, so he won't be traded but right now he's likely worth:

1st 2013 (Top 10)
Top 6 winger

This is what I believe he's worth, and as a Dallas fan I'm likely overrating him.

^I wouldn't go that far, but he's as close to a cornerstone blueliner as the Stars have right now.

He won't be moved.

His value is much higher to us than any team would be willing to pay at the moment. Like the others said, he's becoming a new cornerstone of the franchise, and possible top-pairing Dman.

8 points in 48 games is not too appealing, so I am going to assume he's a shut down guy?

What else is good about him? Speed? IQ?

Points aren't everything. He's a physical monster.

Yeah that's why I was trying to understand his game, I've watched him maybe 3 times.

For an in drafted free agent, they got an absolute steal. Think a bigger Barrett Jackman. Physical as all hell and a good shutdown guy.

He's also a decent skater, showed spurts of great offensive awareness.

Dillon was the perfect case of a late-bloomer.

He was still twice as big as me
It's unreal growing up with a guy, and then seeing Value of: threads about him.

He's quasi untouchable only in the sense the Stars don't have anyone on the roster who can do what he does. If he was traded, the Stars would be very small on the back end and would be down to very few guys who can actually defend.

Well instead of just saying "not a chance" or "he's not being moved", I'll play along.

Passed over in two drafts. Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Seattle in the WHL. And like the post above said, the epitome of a late bloomer. Dillon was easily our best defensemen last year. When looking at our D-core, that may or may not mean much, but he's the cornerstone of our D if not our team (Benn), and our (I believe should be) future captain. He's extremely physical, has some real nice wheels, and is essentially everything you'd need in a shutdown defenseman. Those 8 points in 48 games don't tell the full offensive story, as well. I think it'd be fair to say that once a game he'd pick the pick up and skate all the way up the ice. These plays didn't necessarily turn into goals, but he can create chances with his skating and IQ.

And in addition, he has some of the best flow in the game

As far as what it'd cost/his value, I agree with the post above. It'd take a 1st round pick +. I wouldn't say that's what he's actually worth, but what he's worth to Dallas. It'd take an extreme overpayment, that's for sure. Many people believed he, (and Brodin, for that matter), should've been finalists for the Calder. Unfortunately defensive defensemen/shutdown defensemen rarely if ever get noticed for trophies or awards.

Overall, he's one of the cornerstones of the Dallas Stars. We love him, and it seems like he really loves it here. He's young and just getting started. It'd take a MASSIVE overpayment to pry him away from Dallas.

I hope that helped haha.

K let's not get crazy with what it'd take to acquire him. He's not that good yet.

He was great this year. I didn't hear the interview today, but Ruff sounds like he really likes what Dillon brings.

Galenchuk would make me think long and hard. B. Schenn wouldn't be enough. MacKinnon yes.

Dallas would require a good young potential franchise center to even consider moving him though that's more value than he's worth.

You too? I went to elementary school with the guy and just knew he would make the NHL eventually.

From a Non-stars POV I would offer a top 15 pick plus young roster player with top 6 forward/top 4 D.

From buffalo, something like this:
MINN first (16th)+CoHo
for
Dillon plus VAN second (54)
