At the NHL Draft, Stars GM Jim Nill said he "would like to sit down" with pending unrestricted free agent Patrick Sharp.
Sharp had 18 points in 48 games last season before was shut down in late March for hip surgery. The 35-year-old is coming off of a five year contract worth $5.9 million per season, and will certainly receive significantly less money or term. The Blackhawks' tendency to reacquire old players was reaffirmed last week in the Brandon Saad trade and perhaps heading back to Chicago could be a fit for Sharp if he can't come to an agreement with the Stars.

"I knew it was going to be a challenging year with my father and what he has been going through. Looking back on the season, I probably could have handled my emotions a little better maybe."

Sharp hasn't recorded a point in seven straight games and he has only 18 points in 47 outings this year. It makes you wonder if Dallas should step in and just shut him down.
