Word Association: Morrow and the Stars take on seven Kings

word association - Stars on Kings
We’re going a different direction this time around.

Frequent readers to MayorsManor are well aware of our Word Association features and have enjoyed them as part of our game day previews this season.  Usually though, we’re talking to the Kings’ players about their opponents.  Today, we went inside the Dallas Stars locker room to collect some thoughts about their LA counterparts.

As always, this was all done one-on-one, so nobody heard how the other guys answered – which makes things more interesting when you compare what was said. Overall, the Stars’ players did not disappoint.  Take a look at what they offered up…

Trevor Daley – Good hitter
Alex Goligoski – Big
Brenden Morrow – Peckerwood

Morrow – Skilled
Nystrom – Dangles
