There had been speculation in Dallas for weeks that Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan was going to be fired at the end of the lockout-shortened 48-game NHL season.

Well, at least for now, Black Monday did not get the coach, but the GM instead.

On Sunday night, the Stars fired general manager Joe Nieuwendyk after four seasons, two coaches and no playoffs appearances.

The Stars ended the season with a 22-22-4 mark and out of the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

The 46-year-old Nieuwendyk is a former NHL center playing for Calgary, Dallas, New Jersey, Toronto and Florida from 1987-2007.

For now, Dallas has an option on Coach Gulutzan for a third season.
