I couldn't find this posted anywhere? I know we have speculated that he might get a try-out or signed for some 4th line grit.. but now it's official:

Wonder if Phoenix would be interested in acquiring Stemps again.

60% of 33 faceoffs is too small a statistical pool to really draw conclusions from. To show you how volatile that stat pool is, consider that the two years before, he was 25% in Faceoff % (2 for 8 both times).

Any chance he is getting an opportunity to play for the sole reason he knows about the Sharks and their system? Food for thought I guess.

Don't really see the need for another 4th liner especially a winger.

I think he might be here to give Jackman a bit of a push to be better or be replaced by a comparable player. The same way the rumours for trading for Ryan Smyth may have been intended to give Tanguay a push to re-sign quick.

I didn't think Jackman was that bad last season and if this season comes down to Jackman stepping up his game we are screwed.

Yeah but Jackman could be better. Remember when he was nicknamed Crosby and he was on the 1st power play?

I don't think it is fair to compare him to his career he he scored almost half of his nhl goals and points that year in 23% of his games. I agree he could be better but I don't think bringing in more players will do that he like the rest of the team struggled last year. Jackman's job is safe as far as I am concerned since he is the only guy on the team that can/will fight outside of Iginla.

Jackman was the only one who showed up in alot of games last year.

I always got a laugh when our whole team slacked and Jackman was rifling off wristers from the top of the circle 4-5 times a game.

He had 14 fights last year our entire team only had 35 in total. 2nd highest was Tko at 5. It was the most Tim Jackman has ever fought in the nhl in a season.

Jackman was absolutely AWFUL last season. I honestly can't see how you could defend his play.

As ridiculous as it sounds you could make the argument that our fourth line was a major reason for this teams struggles (Not the only reason, but a significant one nonetheless). 1 goal in 75 games and a -21 against fourth line competition is putrid.

Working your butt off only gets you so far these days.. He needs to be better.

Jackman wasn't awful last season he was just back to normal after playing way above his skillset.

If Winchester earns a spot then fine. If Begin earns a spot then fine. Key word being earn.

Wow it seemed less than that. That probably includes a scrum gone a little aggressive. Or maybe he's not as noticeable in general, but either way, it can't hurt him knowing his job can be given away to someone else if he doesn't help win games.

Didn't Jackman garner interest last year at the trade deadline?

I believe that was the case but I think there was slight speculation he had interest in him from top teams looking for toughness. But of course feaster thought the flames were a playoff team so we were not sellers.

I believe TSN said it was either Jackman signed an extension or he would be traded so he signed.
