    At least post that Marcus Johannson went to NJ for a 2nd and 3rd round pick.

    I'd rather have ~2 Johannson's than 1 Kuznetsov.

    Seriously sick to my stomach that Marleau is no longer a Shark.

    Can't even right now.

    Can't wait to see a bunch of ECHL kids, lobbing 30 pucks a period through the slot, to a 48-year old Ovechkin at the top of the circle.

    I wonder if they gave Ovi the choice and he picked his countryman over Johansson

    Looking at the Sharks lineup with out Marleau, and woof. I'm projecting something like this:

    Pavelski - Thornton - Meier
    Boedker - Couture - Hansen
    Karlsson - Hertl - Donskoi
    Labanc - Tierney - Ward

    That is definitely not a Cup winning lineup. They need a scorer on Thornton's wing, but there are very slim pickings right now. They're best bet is probably trying to get Neal (barf) from LV. I the Pacific is going to be a tough division once again, and the Sharks are in some real danger of falling down the standings. Hope Dougie can work some magic.

    Oh for fuck's sake.



    I thought by letting Haley walk the Sharks were finally moving away from gritty (read: useless) "character" players. This addresses 0% of what we need in the lineup.

    Edit: fuck, I shouldn't have looked at his stat line. 23 points in 241 games.

    $86 million of that is signing bonuses. Also, the Oilers wanted to give him more, but he felt bad. I already have a feeling they'll be in a cap nightmare in a couple of years. Kid may have saved them a little bit of stress.

    Another player I was hoping the Sharks may be looking at re-signed.

    They better not trade my large, beautiful, American son.

    I'm already mentally preparing for, like, two or three years from now when Kessel is completely worthless on the ice. I am training myself now to never hate him and always remember the good times.
