New York Rangers' demotion of Sean Avery could force Dallas Stars to acquir

The Stars are studying moves to add a player because of the sudden possibility that they could drop below the NHL-mandated salary floor of $48.3 million.

The Stars have been paying half of Sean Avery’s salary to the New York Rangers since losing him on recall waivers in 2009, and that $1.9 million has also counted against the salary cap for the Stars.

However, the Rangers last week assigned Avery to the their minor league team in Connecticut , and the NHL notified the Stars that they could not count Avery’s cap hit while he is in the minors, even though they still must pay the salary.

That puts the Stars perilously close to the cap floor.

Adam Pardy is on injured reserve with a rib injury and Philip Larsen has taken his place on the roster, and that has kept the Stars above the floor because both salaries count against the cap.

However, if Pardy recovers from his rib injury — and he is expected to by Thursday — a player would have to be assigned to the minors, and the Stars would fall under the floor because they would have 23 players counting against the cap instead of 24.

“It’s an issue that we didn’t think we would have to deal with, but we do, and we are studying every option,” general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. “Bottom line, you can’t be below the floor.”

    Truckin' got my chips cashed in. Keep truckin', like the do-dah man

    Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin' on.

    Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street.

    Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street.

    Your typical city involved in a typical daydream

    Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings.

    Dallas, got a soft machine; Houston, too close to New Orleans;

    New York's got the ways and means; but just won't let you be, oh no.

    Most of the cast that you meet on the streets speak of true love,

    Most of the time they're sittin' and cryin' at home.

    One of these days they know they better get goin'

    Out of the door and down on the streets all alone.

    Truckin', like the do-dah man. Once told me "You've got to play your hand"

    Sometimes your cards ain't worth a dime, if you don't lay'em down,

    Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me;

    Other times I can barely see.

    Lately it occurres to me What a long, strange trip it's been.

    What in the world ever became of sweet Jane?

    She lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same

    Livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine,

    All a friend can say is "Ain't it a shame?"

    Truckin', up to Buffalo. Been thinkin', you got to mellow slow

    Takes time, you pick a place to go, and just keep truckin' on.

    Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window.

    Got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again

    I'd like to get some sleep before I travel,

    But if you got a warrant, I guess you're gonna come in.

    Busted, down on Bourbon Street, Set up, like a bowlin' pin.

    Knocked down, it get's to wearin' thin. They just won't let you be, oh no.

    You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel;

    Get tired of travelin' and you want to settle down.

    I guess they can't revoke your soul for tryin',

    Get out of the door and light out and look all around.

    Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me;

    Other times I can barely see.

    Lately it occurres to me What a long, strange trip it's been.

    Truckin', I'm a goin' home. Whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,

    Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin' on.

    Hey now get back truckin' home.
