"Stars have acquired rights to Ottawa defenseman Sergei Gonchar, 39, for a conditional 6th round pick. Hope to sign him to 2-year deal."

And here I thought they were trying to get younger?? :?:

SMH - two years $5M per?

Seen that they said Gonchar can help with the young kids, me thinks they are just going to flip him at the deadline for a 1st or 2nd rounder. :|

Not unexpected. The Stars have lots of cap space to work with and I've expected them to mop up whatever they want.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

So I guess this means trades are allowed before the Finals are over? Can teams still playing be involved in trades? I mean not to help their team this year but if they wanted to make a trade for next year could they?

I was wondering the same thing. I always thought the trade freeze lasted until after the playoffs were over.

Good signing by Dallas.

Newsy Lalonde calls him the best passing defenseman he's ever played against

Guess it'll remind them of Zubov.

Preds announce they've re signed Roman Josi 7 years 28 million

$4M AAV first contract after his entry level contract, good thing Tanev's offensive contributions are really low.

Wow, good deal for both. Preds don't want to be losing any more players to FA so lock em up for a while.

Josi ranked 30th among D-men for average icetime in the LEAGUE. He matches up against the top opposition lines every night with his partner Shea Weber. He put up 30+ point pace over 82 games at 23 years of age. He improved significantly from his rookie year from everything I saw.

Tanev quite simply is not comparable to Josi and isn't just lack of offensive contribution but the lack of those extra 6 minutes of icetime a night facing the best opposition. Tanev has been quite the find to be sure but my gut feeling is he is a #5 guy that can step up to the top 4 in times of injury. a 18-20 minute a night guy rather than a 23-25 minute a night guy. And that is the difference between a guy who can demand a long term $4 mil a year deal and a guy who will likely get $1.3 mil per on a year or two deal.
