Dallas Stars Relieve Joe Nieuwendyk Of His Duties

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars Owner and Governor Tom Gaglardi announced today that he has relieved Joe Nieuwendyk of his duties as General Manager of the hockey club.

"Joe Nieuwendyk has represented the Dallas Stars extremely well as the club's General Manager and has helped put pieces in place that will once again turn this team into a contender," said Gaglardi. "I would like to thank Joe for his contributions to this hockey club and wish him and his family only the best in the future.

"However, I believe it is time to take this organization in a different direction with our intentions set on returning to the elite of the National Hockey League. My commitment to the Dallas Stars is unwavering, and I am confident we have found the right General Manager to return us to the pathway of success."

Nieuwendyk's contract was set to expire at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season.

The Dallas Stars will introduce the club's new General Manager on Monday morning (April 29) at American Airlines Center at 11 am CT.

Well, this was totally expected.

The same tomorrow…Jim Nill as GM.

I am certain that Mike Ilitch, Ken Holland, and the entire Wings organization wish Jim & his family great success & happiness…just as they did Steve Yzerman.

The real fascinating question for the Wings is who will Devalano & Holland bring in to replace Nill.  That guy may well be Holland’s hand picked successor…(in training).
