Nill wading through busy offseason 'one step at a time'

From draft preparations to free agency, summertime is quite a juggling act for the Stars general manager

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Jim Nill is always juggling something.

Some days, the Stars general manager is simply working with tennis balls or oranges. Other days, it's chainsaws and watermelons.

But there is always juggling.

Nill spent last week with his amateur scouts in Buffalo interviewing prospective draftees at the annual NHL Scouting Combine. This week, he will host the pro scouts in Frisco to get their take on players inside the organization and out.

He has signed two European free agents in defenseman Emil Djuse, 25, and forward Joel Kiviranta, 23. He has made the decision to relinquish control of Brett Davis, Liam Hawel, Jermaine Loewen and Markus Ruusu by not offering contracts by June 1.

All of it is done with much thought and reason. All of it has to fit into the big picture of running a hockey team.

How Nick Caamano has set himself up for bright future with Stars

Now evolved into a 'full player,' the touted prospect continues to show steady improvement as an all-around forward

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Empty-net goals usually aren't worthy of putting on the highlight reel, but Stars forward prospect Nick Caamano scored one last season that merits consideration.

It was late in Game 6 of the Ontario Hockey League championship series with Caamano's Hamilton Bulldogs leading the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, 4-3. With the Greyhounds pressing for the game-tying goal, one of Caamano's teammates poked the puck from the defensive end into the neutral zone, setting off a race between Caamano and Sault Ste. Marie defenseman Jordan Sambrook. Sambrook, who was hanging back on the play, won the race, but Caamano fought to get the puck back as the two battled into the Sault Ste. Marie zone.

Eventually, Caamano prevailed in the puck battle, diving over a fallen Sambrook to put it into the net from near the bottom of the left circle with 1:58 remaining.

Healthy, motivated Dellandrea welcomes Stars' expectations

A new gluten-free diet and reunion with former teammate Caamano fuels the first-round pick's positive outlook

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

For almost two years Ty Dellandrea tried to figure out why he was constantly getting ill.

"I was throwing up lots, every two days," he said. "At first, I thought I was really, really sick, like a virus or something."

That wasn't it, so he moved onto dietary changes.

"Then I tried going off dairy because I thought it was dairy."

Nope, that wasn't it.

Heika: Stars' draft has to be evaluated on sliding scale

Dallas' scouts aren't concerned with perceptions of pick positions, knowing time will grade effectiveness of process

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The new job has offered some great opportunities, and changed a lot of perceptions.

I was able to go to Buffalo and sit in on interviews with prospects for the 2018 NHL Draft, and it really was eye-opening. One, you realize how much work the scouts put in, and how close they are as a group. And two, you see just how similar all of these athletes are.

They are 17 or 18. They are well-trained in the interview process. They are hungry to become great players.
