Stars may prefer to avoid LTIR
Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News: It’s still not known if Dallas Stars defenseman Stephen Johns will be able to play next season. If he can’t play again, he can be added to the LTIR and would give them access to an extra $2.35 million.
If he’s LTIR’d, the Stars are more likely to bank the cap space during the season and use it at the trade deadline.
If the Stars use LTIR, any performance bonuses paid out after the season will count against their 2021-22 cap. Ideally, the Stars wouldn’t have to use it, but they are already close to the cap and injuries could force their hand.
Seguin and Bishop out five months

Scheifele back on the ice and training for next season
“I’m 100 percent, no question,” Scheifele told NHL.com Tuesday. “Skating every day. I don’t know anyone who skates more than I do. I love being on the ice. That’s my No. 1 thing. I get on the ice as much as I can.”
Scheifele didn’t require surgery. He was off the ice and not training for about a month after the August 11th injury.
