That's what The Hockey News is insisting
today -- that Brett Hull's done as co-general manager of Your Dallas Stars. On the very day owner Tom Hicks is scheduled to meet with his peoples
to discuss the fate of Sloppy Seconds Avery
, THN.com says Hull -- who brought Avery to Dallas in the first place -- will be moved elsewhere within the organization, somewhere he can't do any further damage to a team rebounding from the hire
following Avery's six-game sitdown courtesy National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman. Notes Ken Campbell:
Several NHL sources have indicated that within the next couple of weeks
the Stars' co-GM experiment with Brett Hull and Les Jackson will be
history. Speculation is Hull will move to another area of the
organization and will be out of the decision making process when it
comes to hockey matters.
Hull's insistence on signing Avery in the face of opposition from
everyone else in the hockey department will undoubtedly be a factor in
the move, but sources also say Hull isn't really fulfilling the GM
duties beyond watching the Stars play.
Wait, geez, that has to count for something
