Stars Still Have Interest In Zubov

from Scott Noll of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

Mike Heika just got off the phone with Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk, and here’s the GM’s take on the ESPN interview with Sergei Zubov’s agent that made it seem like the defenseman might be headed elsewhere:

From Mr. Heika:

  Niewendyk said the door still is open for Sergei Zubov, but that the Stars want to make sure he is healthy. Nieuwendyk said he would like to talk with Zubov in a month or so if he has not signed with another team.

Stars In Need Of Backup Goaltender & Sign Woywitka

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

The new Stars GM said the upside of getting a goalie like Jonas Gustavsson was worth the gamble. Yes, he would have prefered that Gustavsson made his decision earlier. Yes, the Stars would have been in on talks for other goalies (they were high on Clemmensen) had Gustavsson just made up his mind earlier..

Yes, he is both frustrated and disappointed, but he said he believes the Stars will solve the problem.

He said they have done their homework on several goalies who could be backups, and now have to work the negotiations with the goalie they like best. Again, the team is on a budget, so the negotiations could take a few days. Some goalies are waiting for bigger offers and the Stars want to get a goalie at the right price.

Turco Wants To Prove Last Season Was A Fluke

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

For all the hype about Gustavsson and his NHL potential, the plan still is for Turco to have his hands firmly on the wheel of the Stars in 2009-10.

And Turco, who will turn 34 on Aug. 13, is aware of that.

“It’s a huge year for me in a lot of regards,” said Turco, whose contract ends after next season. “But, honestly, the thing that is most important for me – like I think it is for every player on the team – is that I want to prove last season was a fluke. I want to prove that we are a much better team than we showed.”

Stars Talking To Their UFAs

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Nieuwendyk said he plans to talk to the agents for Sergei Zubov (Jay Grossman) and Jere Lehtinen (Don Baizley) and get their feelings on what it will take to sign each of the unrestricted free agents. I called both agents this week and neither returned calls, so maybe they will return them after they talk to Nieuwendyk.

My take is that each will be given a fairly low offer and each will turn it down. Each will then have the ability to shop themselves in free agency after July 1. I’ve talked to Lehtinen and I know he wants to continue to play, and he wants to continue to play in Dallas. I have not talked to Zubov, but indications from the Stars is he wants to play and he wants to play in Dallas.
