Sharks resign Stalock and Mike Brown
The calm before the storm here. Perhaps the fact that they’ve resigned Stalock means that they are possibly making Niemi expendable or part of a trade package elsewhere, but other than that, there’s no real news here other than necessary roster bolstering. Mike Brown made a bit of a name for himself during the Kings series and I feel like had Stalock been given the full opportunity maybe he could have saved some of those LA shots in Game 4,5,6 and 7. Keep your ears to the streets, because I think the big trade is going to happen very soon. And by soon I mean, probably the end of the summer because I just jinxed it. There’s been some rumors about Brad Marchand going to the Sharks for Marleau which would fit in theory with Marchand being younger and Marleau going to get a cup with the Bruins, but I don’t think either guy fits the proposed new team’s system as well as the fact that the money doesn’t sync up. But for real, keep your head on a swivel. Couple more smaller signings like this then all of a sudden we’re gonna wake up to find out Jumbo and Patty are gone. It’s coming.
