Career backup coming back from hip and shoulder surgery at 36. Sure we can bury him again but that just takes a spot away from a young guy in texas

A lot of people treat Faksa like a cap dump. He can still turn it around on a new team or even in Dallas. He was overused by Bowner the passed 2 seasons.
28 with 3 years left at 3.25. It shouldnt be that bad of a trade.</div></div>

Eh maybe, but if you believe any of the reports coming out of Dallas, it sounds like he's on the ice skating and trying to work his way back. I don't know if he'd be putting in the effort to come back if he was planning on retirement. It's certainly possible that he gives it a go &amp; finds out that his body just can't do it anymore (ala Ben Bishop), but until I hear anything from a reputable source that states that then I'm going to keep in the mindset that he'll return at some point this year

As far as Faksa goes, he is a cap dump right now. His offense is abysmal (to be expected. I don't judge him on his offense), but the area of his game that he was signed for was his defense and that has taken an absolute nosedive since he signed his contract extension with Dallas, all while playing for extremely defensive-minded coaches. The only area of his game that he is currently even above average at is the faceoff dots (where he excels). In this cap environment, with his lack of production, and with the term remaining on his contract the Stars are going to have to pay a mid round pick MINIMUM to get a team to take his full contract from the Stars.
