It makes you feel less alone.

Really, how can you blame Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg for feeling frustrated?

While other defensemen such as Seth Jones and Zach Werenski loaded up with enormous contract extensions during the offseason, Klingberg was left out in the cold. If that wasn’t bad enough, consider that the Stars signed Klingberg to a steal of a deal, with Klingberg’s $4.25M cap hit running from 2015-16 through this season.

Of course Klingberg wants to get paid. It’s been a long time coming. Yet, he must wait. At 29 years old, this next contract is his big chance to join in the feeding frenzy, but he instead has little to chew on.

Following the Stars’ 3-2 win over the Penguins on Saturday, Klingberg addressed rumors that he requested a trade from the Stars, and also addressed a lack of progress in contract extension negotiations.

Sportsnet shared full video of Klingberg commenting on his status with the Stars:

Klingberg frustrated with slow Stars contract negotiations, addresses rumors of trade request

While Klingberg called rumors about a trade request from the Stars not “entirely true,” he didn’t exactly cement his place in Dallas, either.

“I don’t think it’s entirely true. It’s not like I’ve been going out there and asking ‘I want to get traded now,’ or something like that,” Klingberg said on Saturday. “It’s something that’s been going on with the negotiations and stuff like that. I’m not going to lie, it’s been a few frustrating years individually.”

Three trade proposals for three Athletics pitchers

  Three trade proposals for three Athletics pitchers Do you have any interest in Sean Manaea, Chris Bassitt, or Frankie Montas?Now, there has been reporting, by Derrick Goold specifically, about what kind of starter that the Cardinals would seek if they did indeed get another starter. And I’m going to share the tweet and hope that... it’s wrong, because it makes no sense. I think the general idea of what Goold shares is accurate, but probably not the ordering. And the reason I say that is...

“… For me, as a player, I don’t feel that I’ve been appreciated in that way when we don’t even negotiate. It’s quiet. For me, as a player, my agent, we talked to Jim (Nill) a couple months back. He agreed that we could start talking with other GMs and see where we were at. Negotiation-wise, the Stars have been very quiet.”

If you want Klingberg’s full comments (instead of video), here’s a transcription from Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News:

Trade Klingberg or sign him to an extension? Tricky situation for Stars

This isn’t the first we’ve heard about the Stars, a Klingberg contract extension, and the situation possibly prompting a trade. In late November, Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek reported that the Hurricanes called the Stars about Klingberg, but noted Dallas wasn’t eager to trade him.

NHL COVID news: 2 more games postponed; Gallant enters protocol

  NHL COVID news: 2 more games postponed; Gallant enters protocol The NHL announced on Sunday that two more games originally scheduled for Monday have been postponed while the New York Rangers will be without head coach Gerard Gallant.Monday’s game between the Oilers and Ottawa Senators has been pushed back to Saturday due to COVID issues within the Edmonton Oilers organization as they currently have multiple players sidelined in the league’s protocol.

Things would be simpler if the Stars were clearly a contender, or clearly a cellar dweller. Instead, they’re in a murky spot. Projections range between the Stars having a 25% and 50% chance to make the playoffs, with a four-game winning streak only complicating the outlook.

While the short-term is fuzzy, the longer view seems clear: Klingberg got bumped down the lineup as Miro Heiskanen returned. From 2016-17 through 2018-19, Klingberg averaged 23:21 to 24:32 minutes per night. During that span, Klingberg often emerged as a stealth Norris Trophy candidate.

By no means has he been buried lately, but during the past three seasons, Klingberg’s consistently received less ice time than Heiskanen and Esa Lindell.

One could understand if Klingberg sensed a creeping inevitability to a Stars exit. Last July, the Stars signed Heiskanen to an eight-year, $67.6M contract. In May 2019, the Stars somewhat surprisingly inked Lindell at $5.8M per year through 2024-25. Maybe most tellingly, the Stars brought in Ryan Suter during the offseason at a $3.65M clip until 2024-25.

Cavaliers release: The Cleveland Cavaliers and Koby Altman have reached an agreement on a new long-term contract extension, it was announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Altman will also take on the title of President of Basketball Operations effective immediately. Altman doesn’t have a great track record overall.

Could the Stars make things work with long-term deals for Heiskanen, Lindell, Suter, and Klingberg? It’s not totally unthinkable.

That said, it’s fair to wonder if a Klingberg extension would be the best idea for the Stars. After all, Cap Friendly projects the Stars to allot about $57.17M to just 12 roster spots for 2022-23, and that’s before a possible Klingberg extension.

(Fascinatingly, in early November, Steve Greeley projected a seven-year contract and $8.25M for Klingberg in a piece for Daily Faceoff. Months later, the Stars hired Greeley.)

Could it be that Klingberg is too useful to trade, but not the right fit for a big extension with the Stars?

Memorably, a very different version of this Stars franchise balked at trading Brad Richards around a trade deadline, missed the playoffs, and saw Richards leave in free agency. (Plenty would argue that most people lost in that situation, except maybe for Brad Richards and his accountant[s]?)

Kings, 76ers reportedly talked Simmons trade; Sacramento could be third team, take Harris

  Kings, 76ers reportedly talked Simmons trade; Sacramento could be third team, take Harris Ben Simmons trade talk is increasing around the league, but don't confuse that with a deal getting done.Recently, the 76ers have had “exploratory” talks with the Sacramento Kings, reports Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The Kings have shifted their position from the summer and would include De'Aaron Fox or Tyrese Haliburton in a deal.

Could a similar situation play out with Klingberg and the Stars? Or will it either be a Klingberg trade or contract extension with the Stars?

For all we know, the Stars may still need to figure out the best move here. In case you were wondering, the 2022 NHL Trade Deadline is March 21 at 3 p.m. ET.
