    Never seen it coming….why would the stars go after one of the laziest men in the game…theres better players out there for a smaller amount like Murray, Czercawski and Kariya…they will give a much better effort than Hull…not saying hull is bad but he could do better if he tried harder, then he would be one of the leagues top scorer.

    At first Hull wanted to go back to Dallas because it was where his heart is and dallas was going to sign him for that. Now the Stars are doing the same like they did with Guering, they are competing for him, If it were possible i would forget about Hull and go sign Kariya.

    Forget about the Stars signing someone like Murray or Kariya. Those types of players would never accept a one year contract. And they would cost less than Hull? Murray wants 4-5 million and Kariya the same. Hull is a fan favorite and thats really the only reason why we want him. That and trying to jump start Modano and Lehtinen.

    I have a 50-50 take on signing Hull. First off, it might not happen, and second, he is older and less productive than he used to be. He will be going to a drawn out team that isn’t expected to do much next year. Younger and much different than what he is used to.

    Although he could chip in 20+ goals, and be a nice addition.

    Here’s hoping its the latter.

    Czercawski!?!? GIVE ME A BREAK! I’d take a 50 year old Brett Hull over a 25 year old Czercawski anyday!

    Czercawski only wants 1M and lazy hull wants 2-2.5M…Do the math

    I am not trying to make any acusations or anything and correct me if I’m wrong. But wasn’t there a note saying not to copy articles from other sites cause they wouldn’t be posted. I am not sure if you added anything or not but just wondering. Don’t worry StarsFan I am not making an acusation and it doesn’t matter to me. I actually did that a few times.

    Your point? For one Czercawski isn’t leaving the isles, and two he’s lazier than Hull any day and is inconsistent at best. And I’m pretty sure Hull was looking for a deal closer to the $5 mil mark. I think that’s around what the Yotes are offering him.
