STLTODAY.COM The relatively calm NHL free-agency season rippled Tuesday with center Craig Conroy choosing the Los Angeles Kings over a return to the Blues, while Blues winger Scott Mellanby awaits an offer from Florida and winger Brett Hull nears a meeting this week with Dallas.

Dallas seems the most likely fit.

"It's a slow process for everyone this summer," Hull said. "I think I can be a little bit choosy. I can quit tomorrow and know I've had a great career and that I've made enough money for a couple lifetimes. But I have some goals I'd still like to meet."

"I have a home here, I played here before, I have friends here," Hull told the Post-Dispatch.

One goal in particular: No. 800.

Hull, 39, who is 59 goals shy of the benchmark, just completed his third season with Detroit, where he won a Stanley Cup to go with the one won with the Stars. During a recent charity softball game in Dallas, he suffered a torn muscle. He said the injury is fine; he's "back on the bike."
