A lot of you have asked for some goalie talk, so here are a few answers for you.
Marty Turco did not reach the triggers for his no-trade clause this season, so he can be traded.
Also, while his cap hit is $5.7 million, his actual contract cost is only $5.4 million, so that does make the deal a little better.
Bottom line, I think if the Stars wanted to move him, there would be probably be interest (Philadelphia, for example, has no goalie signed). However, the Flyers have $50 million committed to next season already, and that will be the problem with a lot of teams.
We'll see. My guess is the team is committed to Turco for next season and would hope that he will have a great year as he faces unrestricted free agency. But if the Stars win the Jonas Gustavsson sweepstakes and a team wants to trade an expensive defenseman for Turco, I could see that as an option.
As for Gustavsson, his mom is having some health issues and he is considering all of his options going forward. Farjestad has given him a May 15 deadline to make a decision about going to the NHL. There are some who believe he might stay in Sweden another year because of his mother's health. He would then be able to negotiatie a better contract next summer because of his age.
If he decides to sign this summer, I believe the Stars are still right in the mix with Toronto.
But I believe all recruiters are giving him some time and space right now.
