When Did Jed Ortmeyer Join The San Jose Sharks? Sens GM Discusses Healtey Exodus.

San Jose SharksI just noticed on the San Jose Sharks website that Jed Ortmeyer some how not only ended up on the Sharks roster, but it looks like he’s going to start in San Jose despite playing only 2 games for the Nashville Predators in 2008-2009 (as opposed to 55 for the AHL Milwaukee Admirals). Checking the news releases from the Sharks website, I can’t find any mention of how we acquired him. Anyone know anything about this guy?

XM Radio’s NHL Home Ice reported that Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray, when questioned about the REAL reasons for Dany Heatley’s trade request, said that Heatley not only had issues with head coach Cory Clouston but also with other Senator players. At the same time, Doug Wilson said in a separate interview that his vetting of Heatley revealed that he’s not only a great teammate but also a good person. After suffering through Terrel Owens and Barry Bonds, I’m REALLY not looking forward to any locker room distractions - let’s hope Doug Wilson’s due diligence (and cap planning) wasn’t compromised by the pressures to make a big change for the sake of a (desperate) big change.

  2. The only thing I know about Jed…. it what’s on the Shark’s site. http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=475813

    You know…. as long as he’d quiet for the duration of his contract and does what he has been, stats wise…. I’ll back that trade. Between both Cheech and Milan, we were barely getting the stats that Dany puts up. Milan was a great player that always seemed to be haunted by his legs past…. as in before breaking them. He wasn’t the player they drafted cause of those two years. Cheech….. well it was a year of luck, among a decent amount of hustle. Other than that hustle, was he really worth $3.something Mil?

    I’m just really, really, really glad the price for Heatley wasn’t Marleau. :)

  3. I agree, Marleau had 38 goals last season (78 points), Heatley had 39 goals (72 points) - to trade one for the other would have been a wash, putting them together….

    Marleau’s performance increased dramatically from 07-08 to 08-09 so I believe he’s working to be a better player, he should be rewarded for that effort by being given another chance at The Cup with us.
