Frustrated In Dallas

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Brad Richards is as frustrated as you are.

He’d love it if Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk and Richards’ Toronto-based agent Pat Morris could sit down today and tomorrow and hammer out a contract extension while the Stars are on this road trip. He’d love to stay in Dallas and help the team build for the long-term. But because of the ownership issue, it just isn’t going to happen.

“I’m not going to lie to you, the situation is what it is,’’ Richards said when talking to the media in Toronto this morning. ``It’s not something that isn’t talked about, and it’s not something that Joe and I haven’t talked about. We know a trade’s not ideal for this time being ... but obviously, we’re open and talking about it and giving the chance for ownership to come in. But I’m a Dallas Star, and that’s where my focus is right now”

It was a bit of a confusing answer, but what Richards was saying is that he knows there could be trade talk, he knows that the ownership situation is unsettled, and he’s just trying to deal with it day to day. Nieuwendyk said it’s just as frustrating for him.
