TIMING IS EVERYTHING: SPORTING NEWS' Jesse Spector wrote Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk's moves have "steadily become less impressive, culminating in" yesterday's trade of RW Jaromir Jagr to the Bruins. With the NHL trade deadline not until this afternoon, it is "curious that Nieuwendyk felt that this was the best he could do -- a deal that the Bruins did not even have to think twice about." The Stars always were a team "building for the future, and the point of bringing in" Jagr, C Derek Roy and LW Ray Whitney before this season was "to contend for the playoffs while waiting for prospects to come along -- and if it did not work, make the most of the chance to sell at the trade deadline." Having four picks in the first two rounds of the draft will "help further the future, but by failing to maximize the return for his top trade chip in Jagr, Nieuwendyk has sold the Stars short" (SPORTINGNEWS.com, 4/2).
