Korolyuk to stay in Russia

Per sjsharks.com

This leaves San Jose with almost no forward depth...unless Wilson trades/signs for someone like Friesen, the Sharks look terrible heading into the season.

Shame...this guy could have really benefit from the new NHL. He showed big time improvements in 03-04 but its a family thing and you can't knock a guy for that.

I believe the Sharks are going to come crashing back down to Earth. Not because of this loss, but add the losses of Damphousse, Ricci and Rathje. They traded for Curtis Brown and lost him as a FA and lost assets in a trade just to get Brown in for 29 games.

I know people expected them to suffer from the losses of Nolan and Selanne in the past, but aside from having more holes to fill (which they haven't addressed yet) they have lost a lot of leadership.

Their defense will still maintain with McLaren, Stuart, Hannan as the top three and Preissing and Ehrhoff sticking around with Rob Davison possibly being the 6th dman and Fahey is still another option.

Up front they have Marleau, Cheechoo, Sturm, McCauley, Ekman, Michalek, Thornton, Dimitrakos, Goc, Primeau, Smith and Parker as the likely 12 dressed forwards.

Not a bad group, but there really isn't much in that lineup that would pose to be a scoring threat aside from the skaters on the top line.

The interesting nugget from the Sharks PR is this:

Despite an arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday, Sharks winger Alex Korolyuk has decided to spend the 2005-06 season playing in his native Russia instead of returning to the NHL. The arbitration hearing will move forward as scheduled.


Despite Korolyuk’s decision, upon his return to the NHL, the Sharks will still own his rights for one season at the financial number awarded by the arbitrator. This will be the case, even if Korolyuk returns at an age that would normally make him an unrestricted free agent.
The Sharks retain his rights, and if/when he comes back to the NHL, it is under the terms of the arbitration award.

This has serious implications for Roberto Luongo if he gets so pissed off at Keenan and decides to play overseas - he apparently cannot sit out / play in Europe for two years and come back as a UFA in '07.

The loss of Brown won´t hurt as at all... It was a move that did not pay off and we threw away Brad Boyes along the way, but that won´t hurt us... He would not have been able to outplay Marleau / McCauley / Goc anyway...

Brown was brought in to replace Sturm which he was never capable of... Sturm is healthy again, so no loss there... Michalek and Goc are ready as well...

Losing Rathje and not getting veteran help on D is a risk, but let´s see how that plays out...

Loosing Alex now really hurts, I have to admit... But I just can´t see DW standing pat again...
