Guerin faces possible post-Cup trade
Bill Guerin's future with the Dallas Stars will be in limbo once the
Stanley Cup is hoisted this month.
The Dallas Morning News reports that a clause in Guerin's contract
gives the Stars 45 days to try and trade him once the Stanley Cup
finals are over.
Guerin says he will provide to Stars GM Doug Armstrong a list of
teams he would be wiling to go to in a trade, however, he refused to
mention who might be on the list.
"I want to stay in Dallas, but that may not be up to me," he tells
Guerin says the 45-day trade clause was negotiated as part of his
deal two years ago because the Stars had been "burned" by no-trade
clauses in the past.
Guerin is still owed $25-million over the remaining three years of
his contract. The Stars may be forced to pick up a portion of that
salary in any deal.
Stars owner Tom Hicks said changes would be made to the team's
$44.5-million payroll following their ouster from the Stanley Cup
playoffs in April.
