from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Vernon Fiddler took less money Wednesday to come back to the Dallas Stars, and that’s what the “culture” of Jim Nill’s makeover can create.
“Honestly, I had better offers. But I wanted to stay with this team and finish the job,” Fiddler said after signing a two-year deal that will pay him $1 million next season and $1.5 million in 2015-16. “There is a real attraction to playing here and playing to win, and seeing this through. I think this is going to be a really good team, and I want to be a part of that.”
Fiddler completes the off-season for Nill. The general manager said he is done with acquisitions after trading for center Jason Spezza and signing winger Ales Hemsky, goalie Anders Lindback and forwards Patrick Eaves and Fiddler as free agents. The Stars have a full roster, with the only thing to be determined is how many kids from the AHL-champion Texas Stars earn a spot on the team in training camp.
