Souray Would Like To Stay In Dallas

from John Tranchina of the Dallas Stars website,

Now that Souray has proven he can still contribute at the NHL level, he made it clear that he’d love to remain in Dallas for at least another year, but with his contract expiring on July 1, acknowledges that the decision isn’t solely his. Recognizing there are several blue-line prospects in the organization’s pipeline, Souray is realistic about his chances of staying.

“I think what I have learned this year with this group is that they have a number of young defensemen they have made long-term commitments to that they’re going to have to play and have take bigger roles,” Souray noted. “So where I fit in that, I’m not sure, but I know what I have left and I know what I want to bring to the table. And I know I can still do that. Hopefully, I can come back.”

While the Stars have exclusive negotiating rights with Souray until July 1, he’s been around the business of professional hockey long enough to know that Dallas may want to wait until then to keep their options open, and possibly pursue other free agents. And if that occurs, Souray admits he’ll have no choice but to consider offers himself from other teams, but he’s made his hopes and intentions clear.

“If it goes to July 1, we’ll see what’s out there,” Souray said. “We’ve talked and they have some time to make their minds up, but come July 1, options open up (for me), too. I’d like to stay here. I know they’re going to make changes, if anyone here thinks they’re not making changes, they’re all a little naïve. Hopefully in the year that I’ve been here, they see me as part of the solution moving forward. I really like it here, I don’t want to leave here. We’ll see.”

Now thats a big body the Red Wings could use .. and a huge shot from the point.  He’d be cheap too. Maybe he could teach Ericsson how to hit something.

Paul this is off topic but I wanted to know is the ability to stop certain bloggers from showing up in my feed still available? I only really feel like puking when I see articles from one guy, who will remain anonymous.  But recently his articles continue to pop up despite me unchecking him in my preferences.  Is it a glitch? OR has it been disabled.  Thanks.

Me too L-i-m-h. I’ve unchecked him and he still shows up. I’m guessing we’ve stopped wanting to “here” this guy’s posts.

To answer the questions…  I am aware of the issue of blogs appearing on the KK homepage even though you requested that they not appear. 

KK will be having a software upgrade at the end of June which will correct that issue.

If you don’t want blogs to appear in your rss feeds, the only way to do that is select the indvividual feeds for the blogs you want to appear, and unsubscribe to the KK Homepage feed.

You can select which blogs you want to subscribe to here.
