Steve Ott

From an outsiders perspective, this guys looks like he is a cancer in the locker room.Do the stars even dare consider moving him to help team chemistry?

cancer? now that is funny! Seriously not at all. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't he a groomsman at Daley's wedding? He is a great team guy. He is a great part of this team, and if he does get moved it isn't because he was screwing up team chemistry.

From and insiders perspective, you have no clue what you are talking about.

I'd be lying if I said moving Steve Ott would upset me, but it appears he's quite popular amongst his teammates, so I'm assuming he's there to stay.

He's such a cancer they made him an assistant captain when Richards went out.

They just can't wait to get rid of him.

The common denominator between the two new assistant captains seems to be that their teammates won't stand up for them.

while I wouldn't be upset if they moved him and got a good value from him but Ott is not a cancer. He is a real team guy

Everyone piles on this guy, and most of it is unfair or woefully uninformed. This is no exception to the rule.

Many seem to assume there is no real difference between Steve Ott and Sean Avery. They are both agitators, after all. One was a cancer to the team therefore the other must be too.

But there's a stark difference between the two and anyone who has even remotely followed the Stars would know that. Avery is and was all about himself. Ninety-nine percent of Avery's quotes are about himself or something that relates to his own ego. Alternatively, 99 percent of Ott's quotes are about the team.

So from an outsider's perspective, Ott may appear to be a cancer, but a team doesn't promote an alleged cancer to Alternative Captain during the season. That should have given it away, unless the 'A' on his sweater is only visible to Stars fans.

Umm Otter is one of the hardest works on the ice!
He will not be moved.

Modano is more of a cancer than Ott.

There is an interview with Otter on BaD radio. Discussing all the things I'm sure we are all tired of talking about. I enjoyed it though

By outsider's perspective, do you really mean "I base my judgements off info from bottom line tickers on sports channels" perspective?

My guess is it's based off the long Ott thread in the main forum.

I can't remember the exact quote, but he addressed Modano's comments. IIRC, he said the game doesn't end at the buzzer for him, and that he realizes they're playing these guys in a week. It sounded like a PC way of saying he and Modano didn't exactly see eye to eye on the subject. Mainly though, he wanted to make sure people knew he didn't think it was a big deal that the team didn't jump in. The excuse was lame though. He said so many Anaheim guys were there because they were going to congratulate Giguere for the win, and the Stars were just trying to get to the locker room or something.

The interview is great though. He's trying to fill Morrow's shoes on the ice and on the air now.

I know I laughed at that, seems to be more forgiving than I would have been, and very self aware admitting he deserved to get jumped. At least he is realistic...lol
