Talk about amazing defense.
Wallin wouldn't be a depth signing. He's the #1D we've been missing since he left. Notice how with him we got all the way to the 3rd round and without him patrolling the blueline we even failed to make it past the 1rst round? Coincidence? I don't think so.

rough stuff? You mean by getting his ass kicked every time because he can't skate and can't fight?

Exactly this. First thought in my head when I saw this was "nice knowing you, Douglas"

How would #sjsharks fill blueline without Burns/Demers/Braun? McLellan: "With young players that have earned the opportunity to be there"

How much Kent would a Huskins Husk, if a Huskins could Kent Huskins?

Why, a Huskins would Husk all the Huskins he could Husk, if a Kent could Husk Kent Huskins.

He only got beat down in one fight that I saw last year and was really just a couple punches. he still performed the job. The rest were standard NHL ties. The fact you say he can't skate tells me you don't know what you're looking at. He's actually a pretty good skater especially for his size. Not out right fast but he has very good lateral mobility. Saying he can't skate is frankly ignorant.

I agree. Sharks aren't tight against the cap, but they don't have a ton of room to work with. They'll likely need to rely on Worcester call-ups to fill out the rest of the line up. Better long term solution than free market replacement players anyway.

I felt good about Winchester and Vandermeer at the start of last season, but by the end they didn't do very well and their physical contributions were overrated. The Sharks need better depth players and already have them in the system, but with so many injured players in SJ and Worcester they may end up needing to bring in free-agent fillers anyway...

That all said, if McLaren makes a spot on the team out of camp over someone better I am going to kick someone's dog.

It's a cheap two way deal and w/ re-entry waivers gone it's a no risk signing.

Injuries are going to be a big story this year for everyone, last I heard Hamhuis wasn't 100% and I think Garrison was dealing w/ injuries during the off season / lock out as well.

They could also be planning to move someone/Ballard.

I'm on the dump Wallin bandwagon as much as the next guy due to his poor seasonal play but I seem to remember he was actually good those playoffs, is my memory broken?
