Seguin Re-signs with Stars

Recommended Posts

Kinda falling through the cracks today as the Karlsson trade has dominated the news but Ty Seguin just resigned with the Stars for eight years at 9.85 million a year.

 

 Just a few days ago Seguin commented that he was frustrated that his contract was still not done,  with Karlsson now out of the equation the incentive to get Seguin locked up was higher. 

  Overall not a bad contract. More or less matches the deal that Benn is playing under, the Stars have issues of course but locking up your blue chip players long term is always a great idea.

Falling through the cracks (media-wise anyways) indeed.

Not very often a player of Seguin's ilk AND any large contract he would command gets put on a side blurb, but when the main topic of conversation is an elite defenseman in his prime, who plays more like an elite forward than many forwards, well, we can see why the "Seguin Story" played second fiddle.

 

Anyways, Seguin's significance should not be underestimated.

He is just as important a re-sign (or "acquisition") as Stamkos was to TB and Tavares was to Toronto.
Side note and fun fact.... all three of those players wear #91 :)

 

But, UNLIKE those big, big re-signs or acquisitions by TB and Tor, in the case of the Dallas Stars, Seguin, Benn and Radulov represent what the Stars are hoping to be...…. unfortunately, they also represent almost all the threat from the scoring up front on the team.

Stamkos and Tavares have team forwards depth to back them up. Seguin has Benn and Radulov…..and not much else.
I'd say that makes hanging onto Tyler EXTREMELY significant.

 

Big cap hit at $9.85M, which won't kick in until next season, but that will be offset quite a bit by Jason Spezza's $7.5M cap hit coming off the books after this season.

Also Marc Methot's (33 yrs old) $4.9M cap hit is up after the season as well....so that is even more money that could possibly stay off the books, unless Dallas decides to make him an offer to stay.

 

What that all adds up to is the Stars keeping a prime player to continue to anchor the potent top line, while leaving some money to be able to find some badly needed secondary scoring.

 

Dallas' defense and goaltending has always been a sorespot, but even those have been improved.

In goal, Bishop is not elite, but better than Lehtonen and whomever else they've had over the last few years.

And the defense is slowly becoming better with the likes of Klingberg leading a crop that includes Lindell, Johns, and Honka.

 

But good, smart keep by the Stars.
The Central division is killer already, and they will need every bit of offense they can muster.....I can't help but think that if the Stars can get a legit scoring 2nd line, that Seguin and his linemates would be that much more effective.
