08:05 AM ET 12.17 | The professional career of Cam Barker, a former No. 3 overall pick who has played in Chicago, Minnesota and Edmonton -- continues to head in the wrong direction. [Barker's] time with the AHL Texas Stars is at an end. The Dallas Stars' minor league affiliate has cut the former third overall pick loose from his professional tryout contract. Barker had signed a 25-game agreement with the Stars and the team opted to sever ties with him after that time was up. In his time with Texas, Barker played in 23 games and put up eight points (3 goals, 5 assists). With the number of defensive prospects the Stars were working into their lineup (Brenden Dillon, Jamie Oleksiak, Jordie Benn), Barker wound up being a healthy scratch on at least one occasion.

Around these parts the cheese, potato and bacon combo is king.
My dad's fave are blueberry perogies while I favor sauerkraut and bacon.

LOL. Please stop GB. I'm beinning to sweat and may start to eat door stops if I can't get out soon! Seriously, the Cleveland area has a lot of places that serve great perogies and fine Polish and eastern European food of all types! Very few cases of famine up here! :-)

As a Minnesotan I'll never get over this: we gave up Nick Leddy so that Cam could come stink it up around here.
