Benn, Seguin excited to have Sharp playing for Stars

DALLAS -- Patrick Sharp wasn’t a player any of the Dallas Stars enjoyed facing during his 10 seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks.

That was particularly true over the past two seasons, when he scored six goals and had nine assists against Dallas in nine regular-season games.

But after a trade with the Blackhawks earlier this month made him their teammate, several Stars were more than happy to welcome Sharp to town.

Captain Jamie Benn was joined by defenseman Jason Demers and forwards Tyler Seguin and Ales Hemsky at American Airlines Center on Monday for Sharp’s introductory press conference. It was obvious they’re excited to play with Sharp, who helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup three times in six seasons.

“A good two-way player. He’s a clear winner,” said Seguin, whose 37 goals led the Stars and were tied for fifth in the NHL last season. “I’ve always been a little bitter towards him since I feel like he stole the Cup from me in Boston [in 2013], but I’m really excited to see what he can do. I know he’s a guy who likes to shoot the puck and he’s a guy that he really seems to find his ways to get open out there.”

Sharp: Trade to Stars 'reignites passion to play'

DALLAS -- Patrick Sharp is the type of player the Dallas Stars felt they needed if they are to take the next step in becoming a perennial Stanley Cup contender, so they went and got him in a July 10 trade with the Chicago Blackhawks.

"When you win Stanley Cups, you do things right on the ice, you do things right off the ice and you do things right in the community. It's hard to find those type of players," Dallas general manager Jim Nill said Monday at Sharp's introductory press conference at American Airlines Center. "We think that [Sharp] is going to be a great addition for us.

"We've got a young core here. I know they're going to learn from him, and he's going to be a great addition for us."

The Stars acquired Sharp, who won the Stanley Cup three times in the past six seasons with Chicago, and defense prospect Stephen Johns from the Blackhawks for defenseman Trevor Daley and forward Ryan Garbutt.

Martin St. Louis: 'Earned everything I got' in NHL

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Martin St. Louis expects to miss being around the guys in the dressing room, being one of them. He can see his future, watching a New York Rangers game this season, thinking he can do it better, that he should still be on the ice because he definitely can still play. He's confident it will happen during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Coming to grips with those feelings of expectation and anticipation wasn't difficult for St. Louis; he came to grips with his decision to retire from the NHL, a decision he made official July 2 in a press release distributed by the Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning.

"It was the easiest tough decision to make," St. Louis said Monday in his first public remarks since he announced his retirement.

It was because at 40 years old St. Louis said his heart wasn't in it anymore. He didn't want to go through another summer of training to get ready for what would have been his 17th season in the NHL.

Blues' Brouwer won't attempt to emulate Oshie: report

Monday, 07.20.2015 / 10:17 AM / News

T.J. Oshie was a very popular player with the St. Louis Blues. Troy Brouwer is fully aware of that, but he hopes the fan base will accept him for the player that he is.

Brouwer was acquired by the Blues from the Washington Capitals, along with goaltender Pheonix Copley and a third-round draft pick, on July 2 for Oshie.

"I'm not going to try and be Oshie," Brouwer told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He's got his following. He's one great player and he deserves every jersey that's out there in the stands. But sometimes you just have to move on, and I'm hoping that I can be an exciting player for the fans to cheer for as well."

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
