Its clear by asking for Saad that Stars had no interest in trading with Blackhawks ,, Which sucks cause Grossman could have been helpful as #4/5 dman
Understand why Stars woudln't trade with team they are trying to catch though
We had interest, or we wouldn't have spoken with you guys at all.
Joe was smart though, and was either aware that overpayment would be required, or that was what it would take for him to move Grossman to a competitor over Philly.
And Joe obviously wanted him in the 2nd round at the draft. He's a significant upgrade over Ritchie.
