    For GDT, I wouldn't be against it being a first come, first served thing. If you log in the day of a game and don't see a GDT, create one. If it's closing in on game time and there isn't one, I'll create one. Or LT could, whoever is around at that time.

    If there is a specific game you wanna do the GDT, DM me or LT. If there are enough requests I'll create a sticky with the list of requests and keep it updated.

    I can manage the GDTs as best I can. Some help with a template would be great.

    Sounds like we may carry 8 dmen, which means putting another forward on waivers or sending Hintz down...oof. Better not be the case cause Polak can easily be put on waivers

    Then again, Shapiro also said he thought Smith would be the forward sent down so they really have no clue at all. Tough to say though cause we will have 2 extra forwards and 2 extra dmen. I suppose Smith could be put on waivers if they really want this. May be concerned about Johns' health going forward

    Don't mind the 8 man rotation simply because it's most likely gonna be a rotation of the older guys.

    Doesn't really matter if it's 8 D because the guys sitting I don't care about their needed development.

    The problem is, what is going to happen with the forward to accommodate? Smith on waivers I guess?

    Waiving Smith or sending Hintz down to keep Polak around would be dumb .

    He is clearly being serious, young guys need time to develop in the AHL.

    I believe when Johns returns Carrick may be our 7th. Whether or not Nill eats Polaks deal, we’ll see. If one of the bottom forwards isn’t making it we’ll have another Hateful Eight.

    At that point though if/when needing a forward call-up Gurianov should get that chance.

    It's really not worth losing any sleep over the possibility of losing Gemel Smith. I also don't see how Shapiro could be sharing anything other than his opinion on this. The Stars have no need to commit to a roster move until they are ready to activate Johns. Circumstances and plans could change.

    It's mainly annoying because it's a clogged roster for no reason burning cap space for no reason. Polak's $1.3 million isn't a lot when looking at a total season's spend, but if this team looks good at the deadline, $1.3 million then equates to being able to acquire a guy with a [$someone else do the math] contract. By signing Polak to sit in the pressbox for 65+ games, Nill set a pile of cap space on fire for no reason at all and limited his options for later in the season.

    Best GM ever.

    He apparently had decided to trust Honka and Miro, but wanted some bet presence on a young D corps. He apparently had decided that Heatherington and Bayreuther weren't NHL material (at least yet) He took what he thought was the best available. After seeing Polak be Polak, and seeing Johns injured, he started looking again.

    It is definitely easier being a GM with 20/20 hindsight. At the time, we all thought $1.3M wasn't that big a gamble. Still isn't, and the chance that RP's $1.3M will be the seasons difference maker is slight.

    Just a question, but can they cut him without paying his full salary or counting it towards the cap this year? Hide him in the AHL to remove the cap?

    This is how I understand it - if he's waived and unclaimed, we can put him in the AHL and save 900K towards his cap hit. That negates 2/3 of it roughly, and it gives us much more freedom to acquire a player later.
