from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
One point out right now, what does Nieuwendyk do in 11 days?
He’s got three prime-time rental players he could sell in Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and captain Brenden Morrow, all pending UFAs.
Do you move them all? Or just one or two of them, keeping in mind you may still make the playoffs?
You also need to keep in mind this is a very deep draft on June 30. If a contender offers up a draft pick you can’t resist, doesn’t Nieuwendyk have to think long and hard, especially after not getting anything in return for Richards two years ago?
Oye, tough, tough decisions once again in Dallas.
Here’s what I would do: check the standings April 1 and make your call 48 hours before the deadline. If you’re within two points of eighth, you keep Jagr and try to move Roy and Morrow.
