Esa Lindell locked up for six years, 5.8M AAV. Will be a bargain.

Heiskanen, Klingberg, Lindell is as good a top-3 as you'll find in the league, and I think they're favourites to sign Karlsson. Just a hunch.

The instinct is to add to the second line, and they'll do that too, but with Spezza off the books and Hanzal on permanent IR, they've got room and an elite goalie they need to ride right now.


The fancy stats are saying that's a big overpay for Lindell. He plays lots of minutes but he's carried by his partners.

Honestly surprised by the unflattering stats. Looked good to me.

Yeah, I thought Lindell was good when not trying to draw a call from the refs. That said, I thought that was a bit of an overpay, but whatever, Stars were not in the driver's seat on this one.

Now I wonder what they do with Julius Honka. I still think the talent is there but the organization has clearly soured on him.

Personally I would've preferred Big Ben get the Vezina, but Vasilevskiy is no slouch.
