The Dallas Stars are hoping that a change of scenery breaks Erik Cole out of his season-long slump.
"Yes, definitely," Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk said. "He's a top-six forward who had 35 goals last season, and we expect him to play at that level." Cole has just three goals and six points in 19 games. It remains to be seen exactly where Cole will fit into the Stars' lineup, but it's a good bet that he'll end up on one of Dallas' top two lines. If Cole's been dumped in your league, now is a good time to grab him on the chance that he gets hot in Dallas.
