Dan Hinote

Apparently close to being signed or offered a try out. Haven't seen a post on it yet but...

I posted it in the Sharks news and notes thread.

That was the word from a source at Sharks Ice today, though I couldn’t pin down whether Hinote would be coming with a contract in hand or as a tryout, an arrangement along the lines of Jeff Friesen’s unsuccessful effort a year ago.
Not sure how that is close to being a contract though.

I like him coming in though. There will be some hungry youngsters and veterans trying for these spots.

Assuming that Mitchell is the only lock for the 3rd line we have these guys fighting for 5 spots:

McGinn
Cheechoo
Staubitz
Shelley
Nichol
Ortmeyer
Hinote
Couture
McLaren (of the Frazer kind)

And he won the cup (along w/ Blake). Hope he's healthy. Good vet depth signing.

Here's to hoping that this marks the end of Jody Shelley's time in San Jose.

He is a good PKer, and definitely in the mold of a blue collar hard working player like Mitchell and Ortmeyer.

Dan Hinote is not one that would make Shelley go away. He is not a heavyweight at 6'

I know that, I just mean in the sense that its another bottom 6 guy. Staubitz would replace Shelley essentially, granted not a heavyweight either. But Detroit hasn't exactly had any heavyweights the last few years.

They did have Downey a year ago...

Although I agree that an enforcer is not essential, what are we going to do when Parros takes another shot at Boyle? Letting Staubitz get pummeled by Parros will just give the Ducks momentum, and we really don't need Murray to be spending time in the box.

Pavs can do it, he can do everything, even fly.
really hope hinote makes the team, I loved watching him in Colorado back in the day.

Hinote was a stud when he was younger. SPEED hard work, strong..wished San Jose would have picked him up before he went to St. Louis.

I liked the younger Hinote when he was coming up with the Avs. Seemed like a real pain in the butt to play against. Hopefully he still has something left in the tank. I think one of him or Ortmeyer makes the team, not sure if both do...

Would he be a fit for the third line? McGinn-Mitchell-Hinote? Or is he just a fourth line guy?

Maybe we can do for him what we did for JR...

Allow him to go out on a high note.

For those interested, Hinote was #3 on the Blues for PK. Only Pavs, Marleau and Plihal on the Sharks surpassed his rating.

So we now have:
Marleau, Pavelski, Michalek, Mitchell, Nichol and Hinote as penalty killers. How do you like them apples.

So was I. Michalek was next followed by Grier, Goc and Moen. The dropoff from Michalek to Grier was pretty big. Moen, -6.82, was really bad. Goc started off the year near -12 and ended near -6. -6 is third pairing PK to me. -3 or better is first pairing PK. Pavs was -2.55 to lead the Sharks, followed by Patty at -2.9. Nichol was -7.5 which was good for 7th place on the Preds.

Awesome. Shelley-Nichol-Hinote sounds a lot better than Shelley-Nichol-Staubitz

I still want Malholtra ... Nichol-Malholtra-Hinote. Now that's a PK line ...

Depending on how strong McGinn comes out of the gates, I would expect he would merit PK time too.
