This article is gonna look, feel, and probably be moot. The Dallas Stars have $15M to work with. Most of that will go to Miro Heiskanen. A dash of that will go to Jason Dickinson and Joel Kiviranta. The rest will go towards one open spot at forward and one open spot at defense.
In the universe where Jim Nill gets exactly what he wants, those open spots will include bringing back Oleksiak, and getting the big, middle-six fish in Blake Coleman; who is doing everything in his power to be more expensive by the game.
