This really made me laugh for some reason.

Stars are now 30th (or 1st?) in the NHL in Times Shorthanded at 35.

They are 29th (or 2nd?) in Shots Against per Game with 34.1. Florida is proving stubborn to overcome. For comparison, Hitch's Blues allow 19.5 shots per game.

Luckily, that goes well with their 29th ranking in Shots For per Game which languishes at 25.6, better than only the Preds.

I missed the audio of Benn's double minor for high sticking. Can anybody explain why that isn't the follow through of his contact with the puck?

No one on the Dallas side knew.

Ralph said it was a refs decision. Supposedly suppose to be a shot on net for that to apply but it isn't in the rule.

This looks like a good article about GMJN, but I haven't had a chance to read yet. The thing I noticed is GMJN saying he wishes that he had Benn's talent.

Stars have recalled Jamie Oleksiak from minors. Guy is going to be a beast: 6-foot-7, 255 pounds and has some offensive skills.
.... after Dallas trades him because the Big D is where defenders come to die.

*I'm in a dark place with this team ....

To be serious for a moment though, it is exciting to see national/Toronto media excited about a Dallas prospect. I didn't want that to get buried in the roster move thread.

Am just dreading the day until his contract is close to being up so we get to hear from all of them how he doesn't want to be in Dallas etc etc etc

- He's from Toronto too which is way worse for us than if he was from Victoria like Benn.

He'll regress like Niskanen before that, don't you worry.

Just to make us fell a tiny bit better ... at least we aren't the team that decided to bench Adam Larsson.

I have no idea but it better be a good reason. RT @mtoggel: @coreypronman Why isn't Adam Larsson not playing?
What has happened to player development in this league? It should be pretty ****ing simple .... young players have to play games. What ever level of hockey you want them to develop them in (WHL, OHL, QMJHL, USHL, College Hockey, Europe, ECHL AHL, NHL, etc.) .... it doesn't ****ing work on the bench. Playing games is all that matters.

You mean sitting and watching game film then only playing 8 minutes the next night is not the right thing to do? Color me shocked!

We will know more tomorrow I am sure. Dillon's face might be sore. Maybe another roster move is in the works. Who knows. I cannot imagine that they would call Oleksiak up to not play him. A guy like Rome is fine sitting, as is daily victim Jordie Benn...

let's see what Oleasiak can bring. I'd be furious if we called him up just to sit.

There's no way that's possibly going to happen. No way.

Loktionov apparently asked for a trade. He's small, but he's got top 6 potential, and I think he could be similar to Eakin and possibly even converted to wing.

Just some speculation, but here are a few moves I'd consider making:

Ryder + Morrow for Bleuger + Tangradi + 2nd + 5th (I know, I'm beating this proposal to death but I like it)

Robidas + Fiddler for Ballard + 3rd

Loktionov for 2nd + 3rd (the two picks we acquired)

And the line-up ends up looking like this:

Eriksson - Benn - Jagr
Whitney - Roy - R. Smith
Tangradi - Eakin - Vincour
Nystrom - Loktionov - Garbutt/Wandell

Oleksiak - Larsen
Goligoski - Ballard
Dillon - Daley

Lehtonen
Bachman/Nihlstrop

Explain to me how that isn't realistic (besides all of those trades being made) and how that isn't an improvement over what we have now.

Not saying I see these happening, but I'd like to.

He's Russian and a flight risk. That said, I would still acquire him for a conditional.

Do you think he'll be happy with 4th line minutes here? Maybe if we sent them Jagr. So Loktionov xould habe his minutes. Pardon typos, tablet typing is hard.

If LA is serious about moving him though, I think they look to the East.

Personally, I'd rather they give Reilly Smith a real shot than acquire someone to further bury him and other guys like Sceviour in the minors.

I agree sir. Let's see what talent we have here, before we bring in more people to bench.

Loktionov is exclusively a center, shouldn't hinder R. Smith or Sceviour at all.

Agreed on them looking to the East though, and he also wants playing time, most likely top 6, which we simply don't have for him. But I figured it couldn't hurt to think about it, at least.
