Goodbye, Zubie!

The Dallas Stars have posted an article on their website bidding Sergei Zubov farewell. Ralph Strangis examines Zubie's ability on the ice, as well as his modest avoidance of publicity through the years he spent with Dallas.

"He is, above all, a hockey player, frequently the first on the ice for practice and just as often the last to leave. Once there he is a gregarious and radiant, and a unique talent. Dallas fans will always remember the eighty-foot passes up the gut and on the tape, the ease with which he toted the puck through and around frustrated opponents, the ever-so-slight shoulder shake and quick move to the forehand for a shootout winner, and his improvisational brilliance quarterbacking the Power Play."
