exactly what I was thinking. If you are not planning on resigning him and someone asks for him why not get something where you would have had nothing.

If Hitch isn't right, then it's no big deal. Also, does anybody really see Jody getting any ice time with the Sharks in the playoffs?
I seriously doubt he even stays with the big club the rest of the season. Hypothetically if he gets sent down prior to the deadline would it be a complete punk move to claim him off waivers? Just trying to think outside the box here is all. I can't see him sticking into the playoffs with the them is all.

I don't care if it would be a punk move, I'd do it. But I get attached to people that way.

This is either a precursor to another move, or simply as Howson said - The oppurtunity for him to play as he wasn't gonna get the ice time here.
yes it does. and even if it doesnt, how in the world does it hurt us. Playing Jody is what would hurt us.

Anybody remember when a few people on this very board were saying Jody Shelley was a "deal-sweetner" ?

some of you people need to get your heads checked. Jody is one of the worst nhl'rs i have ever seen. The guy sucks. He is a glorified punching bag. He's not even that good of a fighter. We just got a 6th round pick for a guy who i wouldnt put on my echl team. The guy hurt us way more than he helped us when he played. He took some of the worst penalties and never added anything (every 20th game maybe). Who would you play him over? Boll? HECK NO. Murray? HECK NO. Brassard? HECK NO. Not to mention the guys at the Cuse who I would play over him.

As for the 6th pick being no help. First, you can use 2 6ths to move up to 5th to get a guy you like. A 6th and 5th to move up further, etc, etc, etc, etc. These picks matter. Can't remember exactly where these guys were picked, but we have a few guys i like in our system drafted around the 6th. Methot, Starkov, Dorsett, Marquardt, York.

Nobody ever said that they loved Jody Shelley for his playmaking talent.

Stop the hating. Accept that he was loved, and move on.

If he was so terrible and had no value at all to the team, Howson would have moved him in October when San Jose called the first time.

Quit bashing the guy because obviously you aren't a long time fan or you would appreciate the early days when the only reason to tune in was to see who he would fight. Nobody cares about the draft pick or the money, a lot of us long time fans are sad to see a good guy go so just go bash him on the San Jose boards. I would take him in the lineup over Vyborny at this point any day of the week.

When guys were taking runs at Nash, Zherdev and Brule in their rookie years Shelly was always the first one to start a scrum. I'm sure those guys have appreciation for what Jody did for them and you could show a little too.

Sure Jody has AHL level talent and our organization depth has left him behind but no reason to take a giant **** on the guy who always stuck up for his teammates and the organization.

Why does everyone think this is so bad?? Because the Shelley fans thought we should've got at least a roster player for him??
I agree. Howson was most likely not going to resign him next season. If that is the case, it is better to trade him now and get something in return, then to just let him walk and get nothing except memories.

Plus, this creates another roster spot, and frees up some money for a potential deal (if one is going to happen).

Good Luck Jody!

If 400 games equals the NHL Pension, Jody is at 380 (TSN) will he get blades on the ice 20 more times this season?

I'm actually glad to see him gone. I understand everyones love for him from when the team first started, I just don't think there is a roster spot for him if the team wants to make a run at the playoffs. I'd take a playoff run over keeping any certain player on the team. In my mind I would pick anybody on the roster to play over Shelley. I wish him the best of luck in San Jose.

You want to debate the pros-and-cons of the Jody Shelley era? Cool.

The intelligence levels of fellow posters are not a topic of discussion.
No more personal attacks please and thank you.

Thats great. no one is saying anything about that. last i checked, Nash isnt a rookie anymore. we are in 2008 now. You dont keep players cause they brought something to your club 3 years ago.

When did I ever say that? In fact, I agreed with you that our organizational depth has lapsed Jody Shelly and there is no place on the team for him. Go back an read my post.

Look RDriesen, I think you're an intelligent poster and I like reading your comments. I usually stick up for you but all I'm asking is to not take a stab at Shelly when we all know he has, in one way or another, contributed to this club in past 6 years.

Now that he's gone I would rather focus on the good things he did for us rather than rake him over the coals for no good reason.

So, clearly Hitchcock, Howson, and the whole team are liars, or uneducated when they explain what he brought to the team in the current era. Right? It's all just fluff for the media?

Everyone 'gets' what you are saying.

Everything is always negative.
