Defenseman Kris Russell is joining Dallas in a costly trade-deadline deal with Calgary that will get more expensive if the Stars make the long playoff run they covet. ''We have very good depth within the organization,'' Nill said Monday after trading young defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka, forward prospect Brett Pollock and a conditional 2016 second-round pick to the Flames. The pick becomes a first-rounder if the Stars reach the Western Conference finals and Russell is active for 50 percent of the games in the first two rounds.
