Defending Big D Discusses Joe Nieuwendyk's Comments

General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk held a press conference to announce the Stars’ decision to part with the best player in franchise history, and DBD has a good deal of commentary on his thoughts:

“That’s really the strength of our team with Brad Richards, Mike Ribeiro, Jamie Benn at center. Steve Ott can play there and the guy everyone forgets about, Tom Wandell. So that’s a strength of our team,” said Nieuwendyk.

It’s not only a strength, but perhaps the primary area of development this year. We can hope these young d-men continue improving, but the big steps forward this season need to be taken by Jamie Benn and Tom Wandell.

Good stuff, check it out.
