Found July 03, 2012 on Around The Rink:
Dallas-stars-colorado
July 2, 2012 The free agent frenetics of July 1st found the Sharks barely making moves this past Sunday. The only movements of any significance was adding forward Adam Burish and the loss of Torrey Mitchell to Minnesota for $1.9 million. The Wild paid way too much for a less-than-average player; while Burish will cost the Sharks about $1.8 million. The only catch is that it is a 4-year contract. Age 29, Burish scored 6 goals with 13 assists and 19 points with Dallas last year in 65 games. He was a 4th line player, where he will be for San Jose, I am assuming. Before Dallas, Burish played for Chicago. Between both teams, he played a total of 6 seasons. He’s from Wisconsin and friends with Joe Pavelski. The two work out together during the summer. He’s also outspoken and one of the things that I like about him is his calling Chris Pronger an “idiot”. He’s said many quotes filling many writers stories since his signing, including sticking up for Joe Thornton, and that has a very endearing quality. There’s been a much too quiet level of accepted complacency hovering around the team in that few years and hopefully, this is the start of that fog lifting. Let it rise and evaporate. I know it is only July 2nd, so I hope there are more significant trades in the works. They are needed. Today, smaller additions were made, moves for the future for San Jose, perhaps, but for now, they help the Worcester Sharks. Center Bracken Kearns, defenseman Matt Irwin were added. Goalie Al Stalock is back, although Tyson Sexsmith is not, which is disappointing. Danny Groulx, who played in the KHL for two years is back in the US and has signed with Worcester. Last minute announcement of Jon Matsumoto being signed also was announced tonight. I read his tweet myself a couple hours ago. He last played with the Florida Panthers. Word has it that the Sharks are still in trade talks for Nash, but I’m not sure how serious to take those. I will blog as soon as there is more trade news to report. Martha Hughes

Just business

NHL Free Agency 2012, Day One Today started off pretty well for the sort of spectator I am.  I like to track the movements of ex-Sharks as well as the arrival of new Sharks and really anyone who has ever caught my attention.  Torrey Mitchell promptly signed with Minnesota, I got giddy over a Flyers signing, and Brad Staubitz went to Anaheim.   Although he has never played for...

After opening free agency with John Scott, Darcy Regier made a major decision in parting with Derek Roy, part of the post-Drury core. Not only does Roy’s departure rid the Sabres of one of their undersized forwards, it...

Stars Sign Ray Whitney

The Stars signed Ray Whitney to a two year $9 million contract with a partial NMC today. It's a move that I personally love. He may be 40-years-old but he's still one of the most consistent scorers in the game (seven straight seasons of 55+ points, the last two with a offensively challenged Phoenix Coyotes team) and provides that great scoring depth to the Stars. He'...
