Joe Nieuwendyk: Contract extension talk for Derek Roy can wait
One of the most asked questions from fans after the Stars acquired Derek Roy on Monday was concerning the fact Roy has just one year left on his contract (at $5.5 million) and then is eligible to becom an unrestricted free agent.
Here’s Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk on the issue: “I think we want to see what’s going on with the CBA. There’s still a lot of uncertainty with the CBA. I think we’ll all catch our breath now, he’ll get situated in Dallas, and we’ll go from there.”
