Report: Stars to acquire Richards
The Dallas Stars will acquire Tampa Bay Lightning center Brad Richards in a multi-player trade ... an executive within the league said Monday night. The Stars have looked to make a splash since Les Jackson and Brett Hull took over in the co-general manager role for the fired Doug Armstrong earlier this season. The source said Dallas is expected to package veteran checking center Jeff Halpern, backup goalie Mike Smith and young defenseman Mark Fistric to the Lightning.Well, he's reporting this one as a soon-to-be done deal, and the Richards-to-Dallas rumours have been coming early and often the past week or so.
I'm going to wait for more official confirmation before offering more.
