The story broke last week about Dave Taylor joining the Dallas Stars. The team is scheduled to make it official today, with Taylor becoming director of player personnel. According to Dallas Morning News beat writer Mike Heika, Taylor will handle the “pro side” while Les Jackson will handle the “amateur side.” For those not familiar with the situation, Taylor worked for the Kings last year even though he had been fired as GM after the previous season. Taylor still had one year remaining on his contract so the Kings had him serve it out in a different role. That contract was not renewed and it seems that Taylor has found a job that has more of a higher profile.
