Additionally Neal put up his goal#'s playing primarily on the 3rd line this year w/ an aged Modano and at times Sutherby as his center. Would love to see what he can do next year in a full season w/ a healthy Richards as his center.

As far as a defenseman, the Stars really do need a top pairing guy. I wouldn't mind seeing them put up a package involving Niskanen and/or Daley, and a pick to see what they could fetch. Not sure if this is enough to bring anything of value back though. If they could pull this off and somehow Zubov comes back for a low, incentive-laden contract next year, I think they'd be doing okay:
New #1, Zubov, Robidas, Grossman, Fistric, Vishnevskiy, Hutchinson

Dallas has a logjam of LW's, so could even throw in an LW if needed. Morrow, Neal, Eriksson(Currently playing RW - his offwing), Brunnstrom, and Jamie Benn in the pipeline.

Would rather see them retain Morrow, Neal, Eriksson, and Benn, so Brunnstrom would be the oddman out if needed. Althrough I am curious to see what he can do next year.
