The Stars need to improve on defense, everyone in Dallas knows that. However, with that $3.75 million contract attached to Bieksa, with only one year remaining on the contract, would it be worth it? Plus, who would you trade?
I have a feeling that some people might throw Matt Niskanen in a trade proposal to Vancouver, but I would still hold on to him just to see if he does get his act together. Stars fans know what he is capable of doing, but the only solid play that he showed was when he was paired with Sergei Zubov. Zubov is gone and ever since he has left, Niskanen has shown to be confused at times.
So, if you were Joe Nieuwendyk, and you did in fact have interest in Bieksa, who would you trade and why?
