Once you get past July 2, the off-season goes from boring to excruciatingly boring. Yeah…I’m feelin’ it. This is the time of the year when we get ridiculously over-excited whenever someone even hints at a trade rumor.
Of course, you get your shockers like the Heatley-Havlat trade (it’s a good trade, but who’d a thunk?) and there’s the guessing game of Will Mike Modano (Finally) Retire? Even so, there’s still some Stars news, as meager as it all may be.
- Jamie Langenbrunner and Jason Arnott both signed one-year deals with the St. Louis Blues. Normally, this would be a “meh” signing, but once you realize it isn’t, it gets a lot more interesting. Doug Armstrong made these signings. The same Doug Armstrong who instituted perhaps the worst trade in Stars history when he traded Langenbrunner for Arnott. Oh the irony.
- Apparently Sergei Zubov is the new coach of St. Petersberg, per @ReporterChris on twitter. Good for him.
Now, darlings, I have some news. I got a job, so I can’t ensure that I’ll have enough time to post things anymore. Not that there’s really anything to post in the summer, but whatevs.
Since I can’t guarantee that I’ll be around here, you can find me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/SLStarsFan) or check out my Tumblr (http://bloominginbarbedwire.tumblr.com ) if you want to talk hockey.
Until then, see you later honeybees!
