Hatcher back in Dallas?

TSN Reports that Hatcher, who was recently bought out by the Red Wings, may be coming back to Dallas.Derian Hatcher’s agent isn’t ruling out a possible return of his client to the Dallas Stars. Hatcher was placed on waivers by the Detroit Red Wings yesterday in preparation for buying out his contract, while there are apparently sources in Dallas suggesting the Stars might be interested in reacquiring their former captain.

Another possibility for the Stars is Adam foote, who was bought out by the Avalanche. Both would help the Stars but Hatcher would probably come at a cheaper price.

Well no surprise here. The Dallas Stars bought out the rest of Pierre Turgeon’s contract to free up $4.56 million.

“The Stars will owe Turgeon two-thirds of the $4.56 million, which is about $3.04 million. That buyout money will not count against the Stars cap since Dallas exercised the buyout before Friday’s compliance buyout deadline.

Turgeon, who was in the final year of a six-year, $32.5 million contract, was placed on waivers Wednesday morning. If he clears waivers the Stars will then buy him out.

The Stars Wednesday also decided to exercise the club option on forward Jaroslav Svoboda, who is due $456,000 this season.”
