OK, we're back...
Got to talk to Mark Parrish after practice, and to say he's excited about the opportunity would be selling the situation short. "Estatic?" he said. Parrish said he was absolutely thrilled when he found out the Stars were interested, and a chance to catch up with some old friends (Mike Modano, Toby Petersen) was even better. He'll be wearing #37, by the way.
Updates on everyone else... Sergei Zubov was out there and looked good. Shocking. Are we surprised when he looks good? I mean really. He is who he is, and that's one unbelievable player. Dave Tippett said Zubov was in early today, so you know the guy is just dying to get back on the ice.
Little clarification on the Steve Ott. He started practice, and then he and Brenden Morrow left early with lower-body injuries. Doesn't sound bad, just letting them get off work a bit early. Jere Lehtinen did skate prior to the other guys this morning, and Tippett said they're hoping he'll practice tomorrow.
Lines today (take with a heaping spoon o' salt):
Richards-Parrish (missing bodies, although Stu Barnes cameoed on the wing!)
