08:21 AM ET 03.22 | GM Joe Nieuwendyk, whose Stars have only once been more than three games away from .500, finds himself in a precarious position -- yet again. On one hand, his team is not out of the race and getting into the playoffs would be a big deal for the organization. However, Nieuwendyk also has to determine if it's worth hanging on to players like Brenden Morrow, Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy the way he did Brad Richards a few years ago. Richards stayed in Dallas because the Stars thought they could get into the playoffs. They didn't make it and Richards left, leaving Dallas with nothing in return. Nieuwendyk likely would not want to allow the same thing to happen.

Good point and the Stars have to be honest with themselves. Even if they make the playoffs they are going very far. Sell!

Hanging on to players isn't Nieuwendyk's only precarious situation.

I'm starting to think there need to be changes... which leads me to wonder how Gaglardi views this team.

Yes, and Dallas basically let him walk and become a FA.
