Stars Opt for Change from within

The Stars have been shopping for a solid puck moving top 4 defender for a whille but found the market crazy people asking arms and legs for 35+ year old vets with huge contracts and decided to shop smaller. Top 6 improvement but yet again the market didnt make sense for the Stars GM.

"Ive been known as a GM who maybe overpays when he wants to make a push for the playoffs maybe thats why the prices are so high right now i dont know". "At the end of the day however ive decided to be more patient and pay what i feel comfortable with and so far there has been nothing i like" Stated GM Z.Niece.

The Stars however announced that the look of the roster will change. Veteran Shut down defender Jeff Schultz will be taken out of the line up in favour of Johnathan Blum who should help bring a more offensive approach and speed to the 3rd pairing. Schultzs has been criticized early on for being out of shape and too slow. It appears as if the Stars has realized the same -8 which is among the worst on the team is on the block and will rotate with a healthy Blum for the 6th and final spot.

Other rumors are that the Stars will continue to shop some vets in exchange for younger talent or that missing piece but only if the price is right GM Z Niece states

Probably a very good move.

I do think the prices will drop when people realize that they can't find any takers. Its a really odd market - only a handful of teams have any cap space (don't look now at the Avs $77 million dollar gambit!) - and even fewer are buyers.

Thanks to the 21ov rule no player with a 67ov or lower counts towards my cap, so if someone wants to buy cap space, send your bad 1-year contracts here.
