Stars Fans Upset With GM's Recent Trade
March 16, 2019
The Ticket Sports Radio in Dallas was inundated with calls this morning from angry Stars fans as they woke up to find out that Wayne Simmonds has been traded.

"We're in a playoff on his race, and he decides to trade away our leading goal scorer! What's he smokin'? I want some!". This was the general sentiment of Stars fans calling in. It seems like GM Decelles finally awoke the fan base with this deal.

The Stars are currently embroiled in a tight race in the West, currently sitting 5th but only 5 points up from 9th place Calgary, whom they just beat 6-2. Trading Simmonds who had been leading the team with 26 goals is viewed as a head scratcher by many. What message does this send to Stars players? Are the playoffs not important to management?

"Everybody calm down" said GM Decelles during the media scrum after the Stars morning skate. "Simmer is great and we will certainly be a team calling him this summer when he's a free agent. The reality is, the road to the Cup this year is through the East and there is an arms race going on. We felt strongly about acquiring assets that will help us in the future, knowing our chances of winning this year are essentially nil. I know that's hard to hear but we do not want this club to live in mediocrity for the next decade. We believe in our current roster and this move allows some of younger players to play more minutes and gives us a glimpse into their talent".

It will be up to the Stars scouting staff to salvage this trade in the 2019 draft. The Stars picked up a 2nd and 4th round pick in the deal.
