Am I the only one still pissed?

The 2 things that have me on the verge of not being pissed and wanting to be giddy?
1. green jerseys
2. knowing my fantasy team is going to kick everyone's ass!

Apparently the report about the NHL memo to teams is changing. It did say a 48 game schedule was likely ... but it could change. It said training camp would likely start Saturday .... but it could start as early as Thursday.

The popular word right now is it was actually very vague rather than a guarantee this is going to be a 48 game schedule starting on the 19th.

I'm just going to stop following this until they make the damn thing official.

Now they are saying camp starts Saturday or Monday ....

The following is a list of notable UFA per NBC Sports. I don't think Dallas would have any interest, but is there anyone that tickles your fancy?

Stars PR (via Twitter) announced the players in town are skating in Frisco today in about an hour.

Sounds like Stepneski and Heika will be there. Should get some player quotes today!

Arnott. Plant his ass right in front of the net and call it a game.

With 4 or potentially 5 new faces in the top 9, I can't see the Stars doing a whole lot more than talking to Benn from here until puck drop.

Interesting new detail...

@mirtle Another emerging detail from new CBA: The floor will be at 15% below the midpoint, not exactly $16-million below the cap. A good change.

@TheFourthPeriod NHL Deputy Commish Bill Daly confirms to me that all 30 teams will not be playing Jan 19, contrary to what I was told last night.
Dallas should be playing a home game since we already have had a home game set for Jan 19. Also was pretty obvious, imo, that not all 30 teams could play if there were not going to be any East vs West match ups this year.

Gulutzen made more comments today.

He confirmed what we all speculated. There is 1 D spot open and 1 to 2 forward spots open. He said 2 to 3 D and 2 to 3 forwards will legitimately compete for those spots.

IMO, the 2nd spot is tied to their decision to carry 22 or 23 players ... or more specifically 13 or 14 forwards. The other spot seems to obviously be on Eakin's line with presumably Morrow. So that would look like ....

Eriksson-Benn-Jagr (The line GMJN said they'd start with when Jagr was signed)
Whitney-Roy-Ryder
Morrow-Eakin-OPEN
Nystrom-Fiddler-OPEN
Wandell-Garbutt

I think Vincour is a lock, but he could theoretically end up on the 4th line. His competition could potentially be Fraser, Sceviour, Rithie, Stransky, Faksa, and apparently Arnott (Maybe?Huh?).

If Wandell or Garbutt win the 4th line role, they could decide to carry just 13 forwards.

Here is one take on Arnott:

Quote:
The remaining UFAs may not be superstars but several of them could probably be solid pickups for NHL teams looking to fill their roster for the shortened season.

We take a look at who these remaining UFAs are and what we expect to happen to them.

Jason Arnott, forward, St. Louis Blues, $2,875,000 cap hit for 2011-12

There are always NHL teams looking for veteran leadership along with someone that can put the puck in the net here and there.

At 38 years of age and still unsigned, centre Jason Arnott is at the point in his career where he can full the above-mentioned roles. In 72 games with the St. Louis Blues last season, Arnott had 34 points (17 goals and 17 assists), so there is no doubt that he can produce.

Arnott, whose last deal was with the St. Louis Blues for one year at $2.875 million, might be a good fit for clubs such as the Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers.

Nieuwy is on the Ticket right now, FYI. About to talk junior and AHL players in camp.

Nieuwy said Faksa and Ritchie could come to camp. He did not mention Stransky.

Bob asked if they were long shots, and Nieuwy said yes. This is mainly to get them acclimated to Dallas.

Dallas has every intention of re-signing Derek Roy. The organization is impressed with his work ethic to get healthy, but he also has been impressed with Dallas.

Whoever wins D role in camp is not guaranteed to stick with team. We could see all three, Dillon, Benn, or Oleksiak at points this season.

I wouldn't mind having Arnott for a year. It might give the team a 4th line that can actually score for once.

Bingo. Could help the development of Eakin as well.

Interesting, but I'll believe it when I see it. Not to mention how he produces first.

There's one major drawback. Assuming the NHL waiver rules apply, and I don't see why they wouldn't, if Sceviour comes to camp he'd require waivers to get back to the AHL.

I don't mind Arnott being a Dallas Star, but I'd be pretty pissed if his presence resulted in losing Sceviour on waivers.

On the other hand, we still don't have confirmation Sceviour is coming to camp. His waiver status could force him to miss out on camp so Dallas doesn't even have to worry about exposing him to waivers.

Luckily, Sceviour isn't eligible to become a Group 6 UFA this summer.
