Default Zubov's career with Dallas Stars likely finished

Sergei Zubov's 12-season career with the Stars probably will come to a quiet end this summer, a natural progression of age and business in the NHL.

Zubov, the franchise's all-time leading scorer among defensemen, is recovering from December hip surgery and that is enough to make the Stars cautious about offering him a new contract.

Zubov became an unrestricted free agent July 1 and his agent, Jay Grossman, has been shopping him around the NHL.

Grossman confirmed Tuesday that nine teams have shown interest in Zubov. Grossman believes Zubov, who will turn 39 on July 22, will sign with a new team sometime in the near future.

"We have made good progress in talks with several teams, and I believe we'll get something done soon," Grossman said. "I can't say it's going to be the end of the week or anything, but there is interest out there and we're going to pursue that interest and look for the situation that is best for Sergei."

The guy can still put up points when healthy. I'd put him a half step ahead of Schneider still.

A sad loss to Dallas in many respects. Stars fans should never underestimate the hole Sergei has left in the roster.

The D-men we have coming through the ranks are looking useful but we don't seem to have the puck-moving / shooting D that Zubov was for us.

No doubt it's going to be interesting to see who steps up and fills his skates this coming season.
