Kevin Martin teams up with John Morris; Ferbey’s rink stays intact

The jockeying for the 2009 Olympic trials has officially begun…

[photopress:martin.jpg,full,alignleft]In a rather unexpected move Kevin Martin has informed his old team of Don Walchuk, Carter Rycroft and Don Bartlett that he will be leaving to form a new Alberta rink with (former) skip John Morris. TSN has more on the story here.

Should be interesting how these 2 successful skips adapt to playng together on the same team and whether Morris finally gets a chance at realizing his huge potential.

At the same time – perenial powerhouse rink – Team Furbey – have decided to stay together. hey will likely win some nice cash over the next 3 years, but the temptation of Olympic glory was too much for them and they have decided to keep a good thing going. TSN has the full scoop here.

  • Have always liked John Morris – but he just could never seem to win the big one.

    This could be a good move for him, playing with a proven winner like Martin…

  • I think maybe we give Martin too much credit – he certainly doesn’t seem to be the player he was in his glory years…nn1nn1nn1
