08:24 AM ET 04.02 | Former player Joe Nieuwendyk may be more wired to fight for a playoff spot than sell at the deadline, but the Stars haven't come up with much lately. This time, it seems the decision has been made for Nieuwendyk. The Stars are 16-16-3, good for 35 points. They likely need to get 54 points just to be in the mix for eighth place in the West. If they went 9-3-1 in the final 13 games, they would get exactly 54 points. The problem is they don't have that winning streak written anywhere on them. ... So armed with the information, Nieuwendyk must ponder trades for Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy and Eric Nystrom, and he might even have to listen to offers for Stephane Robidas. In fact, he needs to listen to every offer.

If they had a guy like James Neal they'd be right in there...oh, never mind.

I'd love to see Nystrom on the Isles.

Ha....
Actually when Richards left it made sense to deal Neal because he needs a good center.
He all but disappeared while Malkin was injured.

"We'll just have to wait and see. We've got 48 hours here. They're difficult because these are very difficult decisions. They're never easy." - Joe Nieuwendyk during 2nd intermisson last night

I'd say the decision got a whole lot easier...

He doesn't need a personality. He needs a first line centre to play with.

He's quite happy playing with himself.

As long as their development process is in good order and their highly touted youth develop, the stars will be fine.

Not a fan of Niew(...however you spell his name)'s moves...but hopefully he can flip a few roster vets for something good.

Did anybody mention to Niewendyk that Sean Avery is available?

Sean won't play with anybody (even himself Canuck) unless Torts is coaching.
