I believe I've seen contracts at $450,000, but it might just be for rookie call-ups, etc..

If one of Staubitz and Shelley goes out every shift and fights and accumulates a hilarious amount of PIM's then I'll be cool with it. If you're going to only play 5-7 minutes per night like those two will, you might as well get into at least two fights per night so you don't get suspended after the 3rd. lol

Yes.

It was 475k last year. It will stay at 500k next year and go to 525k the following year.

MINIMUM PLAYER SALARY

What is the new minimum NHL player salary?

The minimum NHL player salary in 2005-06 and 2006-07 will be $450,000; $475,000 in 2007-08 and 2008-09; $500,000 in 2009-10 and 2010-11, and $525,000 in 2011-12 (to the extent the CBA is extended by the Union).

What happens with players who have contracts for 2005-06 for less than the minimum salary?

The player's contract may be bought out. If the contract is not bought out, his salary must be increased to the League minimum.

To clarify, according to Led Zappa's info, the $450k I saw was from contracts several years ago. Contracts today are $500k minimum, but I do believe that Pollack claimed the signing was "in the neighborhood" of $500,000, so it could be a bit higher.

I think Staubitz will become Nichol's pupil - more agitator, drop gloves when needed, rather than FT enforcer. I'm going to think of Staubitz as our version of Carcillo/Brad May
SJ is looking at McLaren to be far more than an enforcer...which is why I don't expect him to play in SJ this season (barring injuries, of course).

Do you see him becoming a top 6 in Clowe mold, or just a really good third liner that teams would love to have. I will say him size would be a great compliment to McGinn and Mitchell on a killer third line.

I see him as a 3rd line/PKer...he made HUGE strides in his game in the second half of last season in Worcester when he focused on being a hockey player as opposed to just a fighter. He ended last season on one of Worcester's top two PK lines (Worcester had more of a 1 and 1A as opposed to a set 1 and 2).

This is good to hear, I was worried Dougie was gonna sign him for 1.2 mil...

I guess Staubitz has a role on the team, but I'm still gonna be pretty unhappy when he plays his 4 minutes and manages to take two minors during that time every game.

Yeah, they can play hockey. to the bare minimum required of them to at least be in the NHL. Go find another team that dresses 2 tough guys and one legitimate checker as their 4th line. It doesn't happen, and it doesn't happen for a reason.

Also, nice of you to automatically assume that anyone who doesn't drop the gloves as their primary skill is a sissy. A nice, healthy strawman sure makes defending a skill-less goon line (and Nichol) a whole lot easier.

I just want guys with actual skills relevant in more than one facet of the game. Shelley and Staubitz have their place on the team, and they have their place on teh 4th line. But not together.

with the amount of capspace i doubt that would be close to possible. the sharks will have 2 scoring lines, an energy line and an enforcing line.

But in reality, it would be terrific. Imagine you put a 4th line against the opponent's 1st not only to defend against them but also intimidate them.
There is no purpose in a 4th line full of enforcers if the opposing team has one of their own. Defeats the purpose and they hit/fight one another instead of going for valuable players.

Speaking of 4th lines, I wish we could swap with Anaheim. Parros is awesome and Brown is a jerk who destroys Euro faces, like Hudler's. I want that on my team.

And they have 6'4 skate like the wind Evgeni Artyukin. Not much of a player but he adds some offense is tough and mean. Would love to have a guy like that on our 4th line.

From Twitter (and I guess Brad's agent):
walsha: I am pleased to announce Brad Staubitz has signed a 1 yr contract with San Jose. He is a gritty player that can play either forward or D.

Agree. I'm not at all convinced that Staubitz will be on the opening night roster unless its just a salary issue and we need to dress a $500k salary. Shelly's best fighting days are behind him but at least he is a better skater than Staubitz, and if that's who we have for an enforcer, so be it. He's at least willing and wins some fights. Staubitz just looks lost at times. Unskilled toughness isn't the teams problem. Bottom scoring is. Nichol has some skills beyond being a tough player. He can shoot and pass but he has to have some NHL players who can shoot and pass or its just a Hanson's brothers line. I have to believe that someone, maybe Ortmeyer (sp?), or one of the young guys be the guy to line up there. At best I expect Shelley and Staubitz to trade off, or perhaps skate Staubitz as a reserve defensemen on some nights when we have 3 players who can all skate, pass and shoot on the 4th line.

Ortmeyer, Helminen, or whoever else isn't going to provide any more offense than Staubitz. At least Staubitz does something those guys won't and that's fight and play tough.

Don't think so. He's been working on "grappling" techniques this summer to improve (non hitting aspects of) his fighting skills.

I like a good fight (not so much a grapple) as much as anyone. But loading up on the Hansen brothers didn't work last year and its hard to envision DW, who knew he needed more from the bottom lines, just throwing out a tough line for toughness sake.

The third line this year has to be able to score some points and the 4th line needs to bring energy, play defense, and chip in too. Nichol is a wasted pickup if he isn't going to use his offensive abilities as well as his other talents.

I haven't seen Ortymeyer play but I have seen Staubitz play and he shouldn't be on the same line with Shelley. I'm not yet convinced he is more than an injury call up at this stage. Without the fight against Tatoo, the boards wouldn't be that high on him either.

My guess is our 4th line will be Shelley - Nichol - Ortmeyer and that Staubitz will be our scratch forward, stepping in for injuries etc.

I don't think that's a disastrous 4th line for what it is, what it can do and considering how few minutes it will get.
