When Jim Nill first met with the media in Dallas after being hired as the general manager of the Stars, he spoke about change. He planned on changing the culture in Dallas to make the Stars a team that hovered around the playoff cutoff, hoping to sneak in. He wanted to build a consistent winner.

"We're going to restore this franchise back to what it was," he said. "And in order to to do that, you need high-end talent. You need strength down the middle."
