Stars sign Dvorak, Fiddler, Pardy, and Dowell

http://stars.nhl.com/club/news.htm?i...id=DL|DAL|home

Quote:
“We’re very excited about the additions we made today,” Nieuwendyk said. “We identified the players we wanted to acquire and were able to get them. We’ve added six good players to our club and we feel we have improved our overall depth. We did a lot of research and today was an important day for us. I’m very pleased with the players that we acquired.”
Adam Pardy - 2 years - $4,000,000

Quote:
Pardy, 27, signed a two-year, $4 million deal. He played just 30 games last season with the Calgary Flames due to a shoulder injury.

"Adam Pardy has been on our radar for quite some time as an up and coming (player), with an arrow pointing up in his game. He's had some injuries, but he's feeling good and healthy," Nieuwendyk said.
Radek Dvorak - 1 year - $1,500,000

Quote:
Dvorak, 34, signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract. He had 22 points in 66 games last season with the Florida Panthers and Atlanta Thrashers. Three of his 7 goals were game-winners. A veteran of 1,118 NHL games over 15 seasons, Dvorak has 215 goals and 341 assists with the Panthers, Rangers, Oilers, Blues and Thrashers.

"He brings an element of size and speed and is a terrific penalty killer, and has proven he can score 15-20 (goals) in this League," Nieuwendyk said.
Vernon Fiddler - 3 years - $5,400,000

Quote:
The Stars also signed veteran center Vernon Fiddler to a three-year, $5.4 million deal. He had 22 points in 71 games last season with the Phoenix Coyotes. He won 53.9 percent of his faceoffs and was the top forward on the team's penalty-killing unit.

"He's a guy that's a meat-and-potatoes guy that is just a player you win with," Nieuwendyk said. "That's what we tried to do here. We tried to add guys that we feel add to the culture and character of what we're trying to do and Vern Fiddler exemplifies that. He's been a well-liked teammate wherever he's been. He's a versatile player in that he's a great faceoff guy and a tremendous penalty killer. He's just a warrior in that bottom grouping of players that you win with."
Jake Dowell - 1 year - $800,000

Quote:
Dowell, 26, had 6 goals, 15 assists and 63 penalty minutes in 79 games last season, his first full NHL campaign. In 109 NHL games spread across parts of four seasons, the 6-foot, 199-pound center has 9 goals, 17 assists and 80 penalty minutes.

"Jake is a player who gives everything he has every game," Nieuwendyk said. "We were impressed with his work ethic as a rookie with Chicago last season and feel he will bring the same effort and intensity to our team. We're excited to have him."

This has certainly increased my awareness of Adam Pardy's existence.

If those terms are correct, this is an incredibly undeserved contract. I don't think the guy has truly proved he is even worth 1 million.

Well, wasn't sure if you guys even knew who he was. I wouldn't if he was a player on a different team than the Flames.

Anyway, yes, your suspicions are entirely correct, he's A 6th or 7th guy. Sorry.

I think Fiddler has some potential, but I'm not sure what Dvorak or Pardy will be able to bring to this team

Hopefully they're our 4th line players not our 3rd line.

So do we have any room to sign anyone else.

Fiddler got 5.4mill over 3 years with us. He's a solid player.

Razor's take on Dvorak
Dvorak was a Panther when Joe was in their org. Good countryman to tutor and comfort young Vincour.

Only signing that is questionable is Pardy who doesn't deserve 2 million but we need to get to the floor so it isn't bad.

Dvorak will be a strong 4th liner and Fiddler will be an excellent addition to our third line and PK.

3 years, 1.8 a year for Fiddler.

I like the Fiddler deal. Blah on other two.

Big fan of Fiddler's game. Not so sure about the terms but it's not a questionable signing that's for sure.

Pardy is nothing special but he's a pretty safe guy. He's better than a 6/7th on this team. He's not worth 2 million, though.

Dvorak intrigues me. To be honest, I don't really know what his game is like anymore. As mentioned it'll be nice for Vincour to have a vet that he can really relate to and show him how to be a pro on the squad.

I think Fiddler and Dvorak could be decent 3rd or 4th line players, I see Pardy as no more than a 6th or 7th Defensmen.

We still have some money to play with, and there are still some solid guys on the board so I am still keeping my faith that Joe will bring a bigger name here that can produce right away. We will need to if we want to even think about competing in the Pacific Division.

One year for Dvorak is ok by me. Not a multi-year deal, which makes me happy.

Fiddler is 1.8 a year for 3 years.

Idk why we paid Pardy 2 million, there's no way he had that much demand from the league.

They must obviously think Pardy can be a guy that earns a 2 million dollar contract in a bigger role. He is probably only worth about 1-1.5 at BEST so its definitely an overpayment buts it only 2 years and we need to reach the floor. Can't really say I hate it. Happy with Fiddler and Dvorak. Should a better PK this year for sure.
