Is Richards headed for Dallas?
The scuttlebutt has been that if Lightning center Brad Richards was going to be dealt to the Stars, it would be for highly regarded goaltender Mike Smith. But Yahoo Sports is reporting a deal might also include checking center Jeff Halpern and defenseman Mark Fistric.
The Lightning said this morning no deal had been made and Richards' agent Pat Morris said late Monday night his client had not been approached about waiving his no-trade clause. Of course, that was about 10 hours ago, so stay tuned.
