It is safe to say that the Dallas Stars also need help defensively. Their best left-handed defenseman is a 34-year-old, Dan Hamhuis. The Stars currently only have four defensemen under contract through next season. Only one of them is a left-handed defensemen and that is the man who was stated before, Hamhuis.
The Stars need help on the left-side of their defense in the worst way possible. The Stars also have something that the New York Rangers need which makes them potential trade partners. After sending backup goaltender, Antti Raanta to the Arizona Coyotes, the Rangers are in the market for someone to backup Henrik Lundqvist.
The Stars currently have three fringe-starting caliber goaltenders signed. They have Ben Bishop, Antti Niemi, and Kari Lehtonen and they only need two of them. If the Rangers and Stars can work out a deal involving Holden and one of those goaltenders, it could end up being a win-win trade for all parties included.
