Dallas Stars Shopping for #1 Defenseman

Quote:
Co-GMs Les Jackson and Brett Hull are here and said they are looking for a trade for a No. 1 defenseman, but that it doesn't look good.

They say the cost is too high and they may just have tor rely on what they have and see if Fistric or Vishnevskiy are ready for the move up.

The most surprising part of this is that Jackson and Hull confirmed it. They usually keep this info pretty quite. I don't actually remember a time the Dallas Stars have come out and said their intentions in regards to trades.

This is actually pretty interesting, because it implies that a #1 defenseman is available for trade right now. That isn't the case everyday.

Is this really news? They made it clear over the summer that a #1 Dman was the top organizational priority.

Of course since their apparent solution was Wade freaking Redden, I don't hold out much hope that a #1 will actually be acquired.

I think it's news because the Stars and an ESPN article said the Stars weren't looking to make a move. Obviously they are.

I'll be surprised if they get something worked out though.

Could you please tell me the difference between a hockey weenie and the real deal?

Yup. They'll make their moves this offseason and go from there.

Dallas doesn't have enough that they should be willing to trade for Bouwmeester. Other than him just see if something comes available. Hell if Dallas continues to play like they are tonight they may get a franchise defenseman like Cowen fall into their lap.

I think you're right, Dallas doesn't have enough to trade to get a top d-man. With all the trouble they've had this year, pack it in and go for Hedman while allowing the youngsters like Eriksson to get playing time and develop.

Even if they packed it in, calling up Sawada and Fistric the Islanders, Bolts, and Thrashers are so bad that I don't think they have a chance in hell of Hedman. Cowen third or a guy like Schroder on the right side would help. There's a few midling defensemen who will be available this summer.

If you read between the lines nothing is going to happen unless they can get a player cheap until the off-season.

Yeah, you're right. These quotes weren't in the original story on the blog:

Quote:
"We're not not going to look," Hull said, using the double negative. "But it's a lot easier to say than it is to do. How do you fit it into your budget? How do you get one without losing your prospects, your draft picks, people who are valuable to your organization? You steal from Peter to pay Paul, it doesn't make any sense."
It just sound like Hull wants people to think they are trying to do something even though they probably won’t.

Jackson goes on to say that he doesn't think it' would be a good business move to pay players, picks, and prospects to get some helps and then turn around and given them a huge contract in the offseason. That was obviously in regards to Bouwmeester.

Not to mention the key part "budget" which means they can't take on anything other then cheap contracts.
Which explains the Hutchinson and Sutherby trades, they're going to try out both to see if they're worth keeping for next season.
Hutchinson if not, can be sent to the minors.

I've actually liked Hutchinson so far. I can't think of a bunch of mistakes he has made, which, for this team, is impressive this season.

He'll be available in February for the right price, and if he likes the destination.

He'll be getting plenty of top prospects being offered for his service, so all those Jamie Benn and James Neal lovers ... not so fast.

You think any other team would match those two players in a trade for his services? Not saying it wouldn't happen, just asking your opinion.

Dallas is not going to dish off the 2 top prospects we have for 1 D man....I just don't see Hull or Jackson making yet another mistake.
