Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk was on NHL Live! this afternoon and talked about Brad Richards, who is a hot topic with the NHL trade deadline looming on Monday. Here is what Nieuwendyk had to say about the possibility of trading Richards before Monday's 2 p.m. deadline.
"I've discussed it with some teams. All options are in play here. It's certainly not my first choice. I've maintained all along that we'd like to keep Brad as a Dallas Star for a long period of time. There's a lot of uncertainty with our side as far as ownership that are a concern for them. But all options are open. It's certainly going to have to be a good type of deal in order to pry him away from us because we’re sitting tied for eighth right now and have a lot of home games coming up in March."
