Lundqvist Not Returning

by Kristine

The Stars have so many free agents this summer that it’s no surprise that news is already starting to roll in about who’s staying and who isn’t. First out of the gate is Joel Lundqvist, who told a Swedish media outlet today that the Stars have already told him they will not be offering him a contract. He will become an unrestricted free agent in July. I don’t think this surprises anyone. The writing was on the wall – or should I say, on Brian Sutherby’s contract. With Sudsy in, it was pretty obvious there wasn’t room for Lundqvist. I felt like he spent all season trying to play catch-up after his injury, and he never quite made it. Mark at Andrew’s Stars Page points out that he had only six points in 43 games. Hopefully another team will see his potential and offer him a contract. Another option would be for him to play in Sweden.

Mark’s report is here, and features a link to the originial Swedish article.
