Teams over value their own players and why the Stars should have waived Joel Hanley on Sunday
A further expansion on a topic that I brought up on the podcast.
This isn’t a new concept, but it’s one that came up earlier this week when I recorded a postgame episode of Spits & Suds after the Dallas Stars 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Monday.

They should have had the foresight to waive Joel Hanley on Sunday to open up a roster spot for either Logan Stankoven or Mavrik Bourque.
I had people both here and in a Stars Discord channel ask me if I could expand on these thoughts.
