I’ve talked to new Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk and he has issued an official ``no comment.’‘
He said he is not ready to talk about anything at this time.
Because I have to confirm these things through direct sources, and because Dave Tippett is not returning phone calls, that’s all I can say at this time. I do not have official confirmation yet.
