A couple of notes for your Tuesday morning.
*NHL.com is breaking down all 30 NHL teams over a 30 day span. Today the focus in on the Dallas Stars and how they make up for the loss of Brad Richards. An excerpt:
Despite the loss of Richards, the Stars are still a team to look out for in the West. Nieuwendyk did a good job of addressing the team's needs in free agency by taking Richards' expected salary, and divvying it out to a handful of role players that make Dallas deeper on all fronts.

*USA Hockey has trimmed 15 players from the roster at its National Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid, NY. Among the 29 players remaining are Stars prospect Jack Campbell, which is no shocker. Also still on the roster are Plano natives Stefan Noesen, a first round pick of the Ottawa Senators in 2011, and Seth Jones, who at 16 is the youngest player at the camp. The players remaining will take part in the remaining international games against Sweden and Finland at the camp. The USA Hockey release is here.
