The Dallas Stars have been looking for an offensive puck-moving defenseman for over a year, and almost picked up one of the game's emerging stud blueliners.

In the Fall issue of The Fourth Period Magazine, a featured story on Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kyle Quincey revealed that the 24-year-old nearly became a member of the Stars at the beginning of the 2008-09 regular-season.

Quincey, who was with the Detroit Red Wings at the time, was actually traded to the Stars, but the deal was nixed after he failed to pass a physical.

"They told me to turn the cab around," Quincey said in the article. "The Stars' doctor saw my MRI and saw the herniated disk, and they said they didn't want to deal with it."

After the deal fell through, Quincey was placed on waivers and was claimed by the Los Angeles Kings, where he put up career numbers.

Quincey was traded to the Avalanche in the summer, as the centerpiece of a package for Ryan Smyth.

So far this season, Quincey, who has expressed his extremely excitement over being a member of the Avs, is tied for the team lead in points with six (1 goals, 5 assists).

The Stars, meanwhile, are still reportedly trying to acquire a mobile defenseman to assist their powerplay.

The Fall issue of The Fourth Period Magazine hits newsstands at the beginning of November.
