Tampa Bay Lightning: Before the Tampa Bay Lightning scattered to their offseason homes, GM Jay Feaster had one important one-on-one meeting. Feaster said he had a good session with goalie Nikolai Khabibulin, who was benched for Game 5 against New Jersey in what turned out to be the Lightning's final game of the season. Dallas Stars: After team owner Tom Hicks announced he was no longer trying to sell the Stars, that ended one piece of uncertainty for the team. Another bigger piece still remains but might fall into place after Hicks' decision -- whether soon-to-be unrestricted free agent defenseman Derian Hatcher re-signs with the Stars.
