from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN
, “It obviously makes you a little nervous,” Ott told ESPN.com after the morning skate. “I’ve been with the Stars since I was drafted. When your name gets mentioned in the rumors, it gets to you a little and you think about it. But truthfully, I do take it as a huge compliment. Obviously if there’s playoff contending teams that think I’m a puzzle piece, I take that as a compliment. But I want to stay here. I want to be part of the solution. But I can only control what I can control.”
Ribeiro, who has another year on his contract next season at $5 million, is taking the rumors in stride.
“If I’m traded, I’m traded, not much I can do about it,” Ribeiro said Tuesday. “Obviously I’d like to be here with the Stars. I want to re-sign here and stay with Dallas for the rest of my career. But you can’t control that. There’s a few more days and we’ll see after the 27th if I’m still here.”
