Sharks Sign Paul Martin To A Four-Year Deal

  View image | The San Jose Sharks have signed D Paul Martin to a four-year deal. Martin registered 17 assists in 2014-15 with Pittsburgh. A four-year deal is rather unusual for a 34-year old that hasn’t played a full season since 2006-2007, but Martin was reportedly their number one target in free agency. He’ll be joining the likes of Brent Burns and Marc...

The San Jose Sharks have found their starting goalie by acquiring Martin Jones

Don Sweeney has been justifiably getting killed online for the early returns of his first draft. He sold low on Dougie Hamilton and brought in prospects that were way off the board in the first round. He also locked up Adam McQuaid to a four-year deal and traded another solid asset in a third-round pick for Zac Rinaldo. All-in-all a tough week for the rookie GM. Well, Sweeney has...

Blues acquire Konrad Abeltshauser in a trade with San Jose

The Blues have traded a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for German defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser. The trade barely registers on the noteworthy meter and likely won’t factor in the team’s roster for 2015-16. Abeltshauser skated in 50 AHL games in 2014-15 with the Worcester Sharks. Over that time, he produced three goals...

Its other meaning sat in the fact that the Sharks, the AHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks since 2006-2007, are moving to […] The post Holy Cross hockey takes new role as Worcester’s only...

Three Things Peter DeBoer Needs To Do As Head Coach In San Jose

The Sharks made their official announcement today naming Peter DeBoer as their new head coach. Now I obviously with any move there is often a split in the fan base of those who approve and those who do not. My personal take is that DeBoer got more out his teams than he should have on multiple occasions and while I can understand the hesitation based his NHL Record (217-200-77) but...

Joe Thornton tells Sharks GM Doug Wilson to “Shut his mouth”

There might be no more fascinating—in a “can’t look away from a train wreck” kind of way—team than the San Jose Sharks right now. After years of building a hockey team the right way, of dominating possession and making the playoffs consistently, the lack of advancing to the Cup Final has taken its toll. This summer, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson stripped Joe Thornton’s...

Antti Niemi’s name was thrown around quite a bit heading into the trade deadline. The San Jose Sharks appeared willing to make a change in net as they prepared to make a last push for a playoff berth. Confidence in Niemi was lacking to say the least. The rumors persisted, the deadline passed and Niemi is still with the Sharks. What happened? According to the Mercury News,...

Pavelski discusses Sharks' slipping attendance

Attendance has been a hot topic in San Jose. The Sharks have drawn an average of 17,385 fans through 29 home games and that’s a pretty respectable number compared to other teams in the NHL. That average checks in at the 18th spot so far in 2014-15, but the team has failed to post a capacity crowd in 15 of its 29 home games. The Sharks are actually averaging more fans this year...
