It's too late to get any confirmation, but capgeek is reporting on its site that the Stars have signed defenseman Dan Spang to a one-year, one-way contract for $525,000. Check out the link here: http://www.capgeek.com/players/display.php?id=2064 Spang , 27, is a talented defenseman who had 37 points (10 goals, 27 assists) in 77 games for the Texas Stars last season. He also played for the Las Vegas of the ECHL (coached by Glen Gulutzan) in 2008-09 and was part of an unlikely run to the Kelly Cup Finals. Keeping Spang would make sense, especially with his ties to Gulutzan (who is expected to become the next head coach of the Dallas Stars). Keeping him on a one-way contract would have all sorts of implications in regards to unrestricted free agents such as Jeff Woywitka, Karlis Skrastins and even minor leaguers such as Brad Lukowich or Trevor Ludwig. If indeed Spang is under a one-way contract, the Stars would have: Stephane Robidas _ $3.55 million with no-trade clauseTrevor Daley _$3.5 million with no-trade clauseAlex Goligoski _ $2.75 millionNicklas Grossman _ $1.75 millionMark Fistric _ $1.25 millionDan Spang _ $525,000 all under one-way contracts. That just seems strange, given that the team could have some money to spend and would seem to need to spend it on defense. Maybe capgeek is wrong and Spang has a two-way contract. We'll check in the morning, but this is fairly curious right now.
