San Jose Sharks Sign Fan Favorite Scott Nichol, Two Others

The San Jose Sharks are reporting that they have signed Scott Nichol to a one-year contract - terms not disclosed. The team also signed Niclas Wallin and Andrew Desjardins (Worcester) each to one year contracts. I think many fans will breathe a sign of relief that Nichol was re-signed, he was definitely brought a [...]

The Dry Season Musings Around The San Jose Sharks

My friend E-Man calls it ‘The Dry Season’, that time of year where we are devoid of contact sports - specifically no football, no hockey. Sure there is the draft and free agency, but those are things that are completely out of our control. At least during the season you feel like you [...]

Washington Capitals End of Season Evaluations - Forwards (K-W)

Boyd Kane – 3 Games, 0 Goals-0 Assists-0 Points, -1 Rating
One who will see very little, if any, time in Washington in future years; confined to providing experience and leadership to the Hershey Bears. Grade: D
Mike Knuble – 69 Games, 29 Goals-24 Assists-53 Points, +23 Rating
A fantastic signing in the offseason and fully deserves the [...]

Washington Capitals End Of Season Evaluations - Forwards (C-G)

Jason Chimera – 39 Games, 7 Goals-10 Assists-17 Points, +6 Rating
I was sceptical about the trade that brought Chimera to the Caps, as we were losing captain Chris Clark, but he slotted into the line up quite nicely at third line left wing, and gradually increased the line’s production. His speedy game contributed to the [...]

One Look And Evgeni Nabokov Leaves The San Jose Sharks

When Dan Boyle assisted in putting the game winning goal into the Sharks net in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarter Finals I saw something that might have been a bigger deal had the Sharks not made it to the Western Conference Finals. Evgeni Nabokov glared at Boyle not once, but twice - [...]

San Jose Sharks Say Goodbye To Evgeni Nabokov

The picture is coming into focus. The San Jose Sharks are reporting that Evgeni Nabokov will not return to the team for the 2010-2011 season. From sjsharks.com:
“Due to this situation Sharks will be going forward with a new goaltending situation next year, meaning Evgeni Nabokov, who has held down the top job since [...]

Washington Capitals End of Season Evaluations - Forwards (A-B)

Keith Aucoin – 9 Games, 1 Goal-4 Assists-5 Points, -2 Rating
His brief spell in the NHL was a successful one, however the aging Aucoin has never really seemed to possess the quality to play regularly for the Capitals, despite leading the AHL in regular season scoring with 106 points. Aucoin will remain in the Capitals [...]

San Jose Sharks: Patrick Marleau’s Stock Up, Evgeni Nabokov’s Stock Down

There’s a great article on ESPN about this year’s free agency pool, specifically the lack of depth around all positions except one - goal tending. The article points out that there will be a lot of known goal tenders looking for jobs come July 1st, including Marty Turco, Martin Biron, Dan Ellis, Michael Leighton, [...]

Washington Capitals End of Season Evaluations - Defensemen (P-S)

Tom Poti – 70 Games, 4 Goals-20 Assists-24 Points, +26 Rating
It was a stand-out season for Tom Poti this year. Although he didn’t shine through the first half of the season he was consistently solid, and he really improved his offensive play particularly later in the season, often stepping up to provide more attacking options [...]
