While you wait for the Stars’ game against the Hurricanes to start, check out Sean Shapiro’s latest mailbag, where he answers all of your Dallas and Texas Stars questions.
That includes a look at which Stars—namely Patrick Sharp and Patrick Eaves—might be in new uniforms by the trade deadline.
Eaves has a very favorable cap hit at $1 million and is going to have a career high in goals this season. He could fit in very well on a team looking for depth on the wing that has a bit of a cap crunch (I’m looking at Chicago).
Sharp is a bit harder to move because of his contract, but will be a hot commodity on the open market with a trio of Stanley Cup rings and his recent concussion issues behind him.
