With all our young players, we need experience, leadership, and responsible play. Douglas brings all of that, and we're thrilled to add him." Isles GM TribalPhoenix stated in a conference call today.

"This club has been building a prospect base, and it is starting to pay dividends.We beleive this to be a time where we take the next step and bring in players who can help us win now."

Confirm. We like and respect Douglas and wish him all the luck in the world with the Islanders, we just don't believe that he fits in with the Sharks' system anymore. We think Casey Cizikas is a great prospect that has shown a lot of promise in the AHL. We hope for him to center the 3rd line as soon as next year.

Welcome to the Sharks, Casey!!
