Dallas Stars Daily Links: What Winning Now Means for NHL UFAs

Dallas Stars Daily Links: What Winning Now Means for NHL UFAs

The new face of free agency looks a lot like the NBA’s. Plus, Hemsky joins the Habs, and other free-agency moves. The Dallas Stars are in win-now mode, and their signing of RW Alexander Radulov in free agency shows that he thinks so, too. Meanwhile, Patrick Sharp and Brian Campbell both took discounts to return to the Chicago Blackhawks. GM Jim Nill talked with AP hockey writer Stephen Whyno about why NHL free agents like Kevin Shattenkirk, who gave a hometown discount to the New York Rangers, are looking more and more like NBA players and choosing destinations based on a variety of often...

Patrick Sharp's hip injury not a concern for the Blackhawks

He’s already skating, according to GM Stan Bowman There were two major concerns held by those who questioned the Chicago Blackhawks signing of Patrick Sharp to a one-year deal on Saturday, bringing back one of the longest-tenured players in franchise history. First off, Sharp turns 36 this December. And there’s no telling how much his age will affect his performance on the ice. But Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman met with the media on Saturday afternoon and tried alleviating the second concern: Sharp’s hip injury, #Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman said Patrick Sharp's hip injury...

The Case For Free Agent Sam Gagner

The Case For Free Agent Sam Gagner

From a noted Sam Gagner enthusiast. I’m sure everyone is incredibly surprised that noted Sam Gagner fan Ann Atkinson is here to tell you why the Stars should sign Sam Gagner. I’ll pause to let you recover from the shock. So here it is: the Stars should sign Sam Gagner because we need more veteran forwards, he’s available and (probably) cheap, he just had the best year of his career playing mostly on their fourth line. Ales Hemsky, Jiri Hudler, and Patrick Sharp are all pending UFAs who, between the three of them, took up 11.9 million in cap space last season. Hemsky missed most of...

Blackhawks looking to bring back Patrick Sharp, per report

But now is not the time for another nostalgia trip. Regardless of how you felt about the outcome of Friday’s blockbuster trades involving the Chicago Blackhawks, I think we can all agree that general manager Stan Bowman showed he was not afraid to make an unpopular move if he feels that it will help his team in the long run. It was the type of shrewd move that GMs have to make if they’re going to preserve whatever is left of this current run of annual contention for the Hawks. Time will tell if Bowman’s move was the right one, but at a minimum I can appreciate the effort. And then I...

Blackhawks make Draft Day trade with the Dallas Stars

It was not to re-acquire Patrick Sharp For months, it was rumored that the Blackhawks wanted to make a “splash” with the city of Chicago hosting the 2017 NHL Draft. They took care of that with a couple of morning trades. But that didn’t stop the Hawks from diving back into the trade pool on Friday night. As TSN’s Darren Dreger first reported on Twitter, the Blackhawks traded their No. 26 pick in the first round of the draft to the Dallas Stars, receiving the Stars’ No. 29 pick in the first round and an additional third-round pick (70th overall) The trade gives the Hawks a second...
