Capped: Stars Aligning

Eric Daoust



Six Dallas Stars cap bargains to consider.


Over the last couple years the Dallas Stars have been an excellent source for new multi-category producers. These newcomers have been given favorable opportunities as a result of the team’s youth movement that even saw the departure of long-time captain Brenden Morrow last year. And when opportunities present themselves sometimes you can find some surprise fantasy hockey gems.


In cap leagues it is possible to own multi-category studs that have a bargain cap hit. A player’s ability to produce points is a significant factor in his cost. Thus, players that provide less offensive impact but dominate in categories such as hits and PIM can offer excellent bang for your buck. Combining cheaper physical monsters along with more expensive scoring stars can give you the best of both worlds and allow you to have success in every category.


Today we will look at several of the Stars’ high-end multi-category producers as well as some options down on the team’s AHL affiliate who could be next in line to make the jump to the NHL. All of them are cap-friendly at the moment. Find out which ones can continue to offer the goods at a bargain cost in the years to come.

Brendan Dillon ($743,333)


If you missed out on Radko Gudas as a top multi-cat bargain on the blueline, then Dillon is a great alternative. In his two NHL seasons he has produced similar numbers which gives a good picture of what we can expect over a full schedule for the foreseeable future.
