Will Jim Lites' comments impact Dallas Stars ability to sign free agents?

Free agency is around the corner. The St. Louis Blues hoisted the Stanley Cup, reminding us all of the cruel puck luck that struck Jamie Benn in overtime of game seven a mere month ago. With any luck at all on the open net wrap around he missed, St. Louis doesn't hoist the Cup. We all know it. He knows it. Potential acquisitions know it. They know how close the Stars were to being in the Western Conference Final. So, the Stars should be a prime free agency destination, right?

Breaking down the comparable contracts and other factors for Mats Zuccarello's next deal

After he was traded from the Rangers to Dallas at the trade deadline for a pair of conditional draft picks, Zuccarello instantly developed chemistry and conjured creativity in the team's top six.Almost four months later, he still fits with the Stars. His playmaking ability added another dimension to the Stars offense both at even-strength and on the power play, and could again be the piece the team adds to deepen their top six behind Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Alexander Radulov and Roope Hintz.There's just the pesky contract he now has to sign.Zuccarello...

Dallas Stars End-of-Season Grades: The Top Six

At one point a glaring weakness, the Stars’ top-six forward group finally came together by season’s end. It’s hard to evaluate the Dallas Stars’ top six forwards for the 2018-19 season.
