Sharks Re-sign G Alex Stalock, sign D Danny Groulx

http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?...id=DL|SJS|home

http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=636969


I didn't see this posted anywhere and I thought it deserved its own thread. I like both signings. Stalock should be NHL ready soon, and who knows maybe if there's some goaltending change here he'll get his chance to play. I'm glad he's gonna keep getting experience with Worcester though so he can improve.

Danny Groulx, I think I might have heard his name once before and judging by his statistics (http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=35771) he's put up some good numbers in the AHL. Anyone know much about this guy?

Groulx sounds familiar because he played for the baby Sharks in 09-10.

Danny Groulx played for Worcester. Was good on the PP and offensively, the knock was defense. He went to the KHL and is now back, career AHLer.

In similar news,
Renaud P Lavoie ‏@RenLavoieRDS
Sharks signs John MaCarthy 2 years / $1 225 000 total. Season 2013-14 is one way.

The second year being one way is sorta interesting.

I like how Squeeven always creates threads about signings hours after we've already seen them.

BTW, Groulx's lackluster defense here a few seasons back really caused some consternation with the fans early in the season, but as the year went on you could see that he knew what his limitations were and he played within them. His offensive upside makes his below average defensive skills passable.

I've never really known this to be honest, what exactly does it mean when its a one or two way contract?

One way means he's payed the same in the AHL and the NHL and two way he has an NHL salary and an AHL salary which is smaller.

Hehe, I stole that one from a friend on Letsgosharks

But I can't wait for Stalock to take the reigns someday if/ever. We need a goalie that is confident with moving the puck to act as a mini-catalyst for this team.

STAY HEALTHY, ALEX!

Btw, did you guys hear we signed Burish?

Was this before or after we got Larionov on waivers?

Ok dude, you took one fun shot at me now be done with it, lol. I'm not on here all day and when I watch the tsn or the score, San Jose's minor league signings don't exactly make the news like they do in San Jose. Did you ever think that that's why I'm late on this stuff?

Can 201 or Speed comment on what you think the logic is of signing Groulx? With Doherty, Acolatse, Tennyson, Abeltshauser, Irwin, Pelech (assuming he takes QO) and Petrecki that's basically your 7 main defensemen. And isn't Wrenn expected to come to the AHL next year? So I don't see where Groulx fits in unless they are expecting him to play forward.

The guy seems to have a great offensive upside but is bad on D. I was wondering the same thing, why not just try him as a forward?

You are expecting a stupid trade, I assume. I think this is in preparation of that. lol

With DW I'm always expecting a stupid trade. I was hoping there was some remotely logical reason for this signing that did not point to another stupid trade. So I figured I would ask those who would know.
