Trade deadline approaches for Stars
playoff run 
The Stars entered the summer of 2017 with around $20 million in cap space and exited with less than $1 million.   The team finished second-to-last in the Central Division, experiencing a woeful drop from tops in the Western Conference a season prior to 11th. They had hopes to contend for a Wild Card spot during the month of February, but eventually fell apart and took the role of sellers at the trade deadline.
The Stars went right to work in the off season with Hitchcock onboard and retooled each key position on the ice. Ben Bishop, Marc Methot, Alexander Radulov, Martin Hanzal, and others were all added to the team by Nill in the weeks following Hitchcock’s arrival in Dallas. Two of the four signings have had a dramatic impact on the Stars to date (Bishop and Radulov) and the other two (Methot and Hanzal) have been battling injuries since their arrival. However, Hitchcock’s arrival, along with the addition of Bishop and Radulov, have boosted the output by the Stars this season. Now the Stars once again face a trade deadline while the other top 4 in the Western Conference make similar plans!
