Actually I remember there being quite a bit of Spezza to Stars buzz. The other ones definitely came out of left field though.

If only this site had a legitimate news source attached to it so Bishop could see how much he is wanted.

Spezza had a NTC so he got to pick (sort of) where he went, and it wasn't any secret Dallas was near the top of his list.

Just the fact that players want to come to Dallas again is pretty awesome. :)

You can feel the tension in the streets as Dallas waits for this trade to go down. Palpable.

They've even shut down part of downtown to prep for his welcome ceremony.

Rumor has it that Nill sent a robot into Yzerman's office to deliver Eakin and a 1st.

Makes sense to use the robot, as one of those assets is sure to bomb.

You know, the Stars could take a page out of the Mavs' playbook and grab Bishop's less-productive brother, Ken Bishop.

Yes. We've already discussed it at length, but we got bored and deleted the thread.

Let's not be so quick to say the trade didn't happen. Sometimes trades happen in ways we don't understand.
