  1. Hey, what's going on with all the one-year contracts? Aren't we going to have this same problem again next year when all our players are free agents again?

  2. 1 year deals at this level are pretty common. They give the parent club the most flexibility when it comes trade and draft time.

  3. Also, the Dallas Stars are facing a lot of what one might call "financial uncertainty". One year contracts make sure that the Stars don't over commit themselves for the next few years.
