There's a new Heika article on the Morrow situation but it's behind the paywall.

I’d love to be a part of the solution next year, and hopefully management agrees.”

Management said the plan is to go forward with Morrow and help him become the best player he can be.
“First and foremost, I would like Brenden to get healthy,” Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. “With everything he dealt with this season, I think we have a good plan now. The doctors don’t believe he needs surgery, and I think we saw at the end of the season he was a lot closer to the Brenden we know. So I think we work hard, and we get him healthy, and then we move on from there. He’s a very valuable part of this organization.”
nothing really groundbreaking

His other paywalled article was pretty interesting, it was a pretty in depth Q&A

For one he thinks that godard is going to be bought out, Secondly he thinks that not all four of morrow/robidas/ott/morrow will be back with Robidas(ughh) being the most likely to stay, and lastly what i thought was most interesting was him saying that they are going to take a run at suter, parise or both

Yeah just same ol core that will come back next year and fall apart like usual. Seriously if Morrow is here at the start of next season and is still captain, then whatever team there is next season will repeat the same crap like the past 4 seasons.

Come on Joe Morrow has been sucking up and down these past seasons and needs to go, he is not apart of the solution just like RobiDUH is mad they didn't make it again and he isn't taking some of the blame that he sucks as a defensemen. They need to go and go fast.

Larsen on Denmark's team.

Glad to see that Bachman was chosen.

This will help raise Bachman's profile league-wide (moreso if he performs well obviously) and potentially his trade value.

While I do agree, I think it's most prudent to see how he recovers from offseason surgery first. His value is at an all time low, and there's always a chance he comes out on fire next year when healthy.

Neither party is wrong here. Kari wasn't in top form the last few games, but the team was a lottery team all year when he wasn't playing Vezina caliber goaltending.

2nd year in a row that Kari's play faded down the stretch. 2nd year that the goalie rotation was abandoned at points during the season...

"Looking to join" as in he wants to play but hasn't been asked?

Or has he for sure been invited?

I would hope it's the latter.

Bachman and Campbell both? How's that going to work? I'm assuming Miller will be the starter, not sure about anyone else.

Heika just tweeted, Eriksson to Sweden and Vincour to the Czechs.

So that's 8.

I was really hoping Vincour would get invited by the Czechs. I doubt he's on a scoring line but this experience can only be good for him. I'm going to have to watch the Worlds somehow. Are the games on the NHL Network?

Yes, that site is blocked because it is utterly worthless.

Also, I love how Loui is so loyal to Team Sweden. He never comes up with excuses why he can't go to these things despite being one of their premier players.

They weren't last year I don't believe. Haven't seen any announcement of it being on there this year either.

And that bleacher reported "article" is a complete embarrassment. Dude is a Toronto fan and has obviously never watched a single game of Stars hockey in his life outside of when Toronto plays Dallas.

I believe Miller declined an invitation to play this year. They'll probably wait and try to pick up their third goalie after the first round of the NHL playoffs and hope a decent American goalie is eliminated and willing to play (Quick, Howard, Schneider, etc.). If that fails then they probably try for somebody like Montoya or Boucher. Either way, Bachman probably ends up as the #3 goalie, and I doubt he gets a start.

Campbell was the #3 last year wasn't he?

Yes he was. I believe that he dressed for one game but didn't get any ice time. I would expect Campbell's experience from last year and his international experience at the junior level to give him the edge over Bachman as the #2 goalie.
