Eric Nystrom traded to Dallas

Eric Nystrom a Star... Stars give up future considerations...

Twitterverse

Quote:
The Dallas Stars announced today that the NHL club has acquired forward Eric Nystrom from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for future considerations. The club also assigned forward Tomas Vincour to the Texas Stars, Dallas’ primary affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Nystrom, 28, has skated in 286 NHL games, scoring 23 goals and 28 assists for 51 points. The 6-1, 193-pound forward from Syosset, New York, skated in every game last season for the Minnesota Wild and registered 12 points (4 goals and 8 assists).

“Eric is a hard-working forward who kills penalties and will help with the depth of our current roster,” said Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk.

Nystrom is a 4th line LW, career high 11g and 19pts. Signed for 1.4mil thru next season. Sucks we had to get another year commitment to a 4th liner to solve this issue.

Vincour sent down to Cedar Park as expected.

Yeah, I would've preferred signing a vet to a 1 year deal. Nystrom's salary is the same as his cap hit too, so they're going to have to find a way to pay all of that. Seems like a strange move unless they just really like the player which would also be weird since no one else in the league wanted him for half his contract.

not crazy about it, but it had to be done. But IMO it makes our depth that much stronger.

Dallas made the trade instead of picking him up on waivers because they needed to reach the Cap Floor (due to Avery being sent down to the minors by NYR).

Is Dvorak playing third/fourth line minutes this year? If so, this is his replacement for next year since he's only signed for one year.

Soild pick up if you ask me.

I have a feeling he sticks around to play with Vincour.

But that is one thing I didn't think of.

And he should be getting 3rd line minutes for most of the season.

Nystrom is overpaid and if Minnesota is cutting him from his roster he can't be that great. The less we see of him the better in my opinion.

"The re-entry and trade move makes sense as Dallas needed $1.2 million in salary to reach the cap floor after Sean Avery was waived by the New York Rangers (who coincidentally had claimed Avery off of re-entry waivers). Rather than picking up Nystrom at 700K on re-entry waivers, they now get two years of Nystrom at $1.4 million and stay above the cap floor."

Yes, but we've debated this to death on the trade board, and in our salary cap thread. So you're literally telling us the obvious. I think Russo and Heika (Minny and DMN reporters, respectively), covered this in their latest releases.

Mainly worried about whether or not Nystrom would be there after re-entry.

You should realize that this has been beaten to death not only on the Stars boards but the main boards as well. Reading is fundamental!

Good enough move, i guess. Too bad the future considerations wasnt barch instead. Itll probably end up being nothing tho so thats nice. Vincour wasn't looking to great so he was probalby going to the AHL anyway. We are still closer to the cap floor than I think a team should be comfortable with but it is what it is at this point.

ridiculous pick-up-total spare was not even wanted on reentry-now Vincour sits and waits -yeah lets has played lights out but this team is weak-I really don't post anymore because it is clear this team is biding time and trying to fool fans. The Texas Rangers used the opportunity to rebuild and are a force. Not the Stars. they keep Richards at the deadline, keep Robidas. They refuse to get younger and bring in guys like Pardy a 6/7 d-man at 2 million who probably would have given his right nut for a one way deal much less 2 years at 2 million. Now, Nystrom on a 2 year deal. Look this is an NHL team that has Petersen, Barch, Nystrom, Raycroft. All are AHL fodder and are basically garbage.

On top of that, their prospect pool lacks top end talent especially at center. Hopefully, they are all out at the deadline but judging by the 6000 fans that showed up , they are out now, at least in the eyes of Dallas fans.

They should look into trading Morrow to Toronto and Robidas to EDM but no. Instead, we play a game pretending this team is a playoff team. A fast start is the worst possible outcome but I have come to expect the worst from Newy.

Hopefully, we get a new owner who sacks Newy and his ECHL coach until then we only make the inevitable rebuild more difficult by pretending we don't suck.

And who would you have picked up in order to fulfill our salary floor needs while all the same getting "younger."

You realize if we traded Morrow and Robiadas we'd be 6 mil off the cap floor. You want to get younger but how? By rushing prospects up from Juniors and the AHL and ruining them? How exactly do you sell off your old vets and get younger when you don't have any prospects ready to make the jump, nor do they make enough money to keep us within the cap floor.

This team is rebuilding but its also a transition, our youth isn't developed enough to make the jump to the NHL level. Ignore that and you turn into Phoenix or Columbus by rushing kids who aren't ready yet in the name of "getting younger." Plus with a 43.6 mil cap floor that isn't really an option like it used to be, see Florida this year signing 6 vets. Ottawa can get younger because they have a ton of really bad contracts eating their cap space. Our youth movement will come in a few years when our blue chippers are ready to make the jump, and we'll have a ton of open cap space for big FA aquisitions. We have the luxury of not being tied down by any bad contracts. But I guess that's a bad thing in your eyes rofl.

You're just spewing talking points without any actual thought process. Please keep avoiding these boards and do everyone a favor.

Decent depth signing. Given the situation we couldn't expect anything special. Happy with the addition, hope he competes hard for a spot in the lineup with great results for the overall performance of the team. I did like him when he was playing for the Flames, not too worried what his deal was with the Wild. Don't mind the fact that he's also under contract for next year. Lots of capspace, even with the contract extensions of Benn, Goligoski, Grossman, Burish...The new owner will sort those out, given the need for prestigious signings to start his era as the new owner.
Also, maybe it'll be a good connection next year between Nystrom and Godard, given their same past with the Flames.
