So, last summer, the Sharks did not pursue any key free agents, and did not pursue any significant trades. As a consequence, they fell behind the other teams that moved forward, and actually fell back another step in part due to some chronic injuries and poor showing in the month of February. As a consequence, the Sharks playoff streak was snapped, to the great consternation and disappointment of fans.
This year, the Sharks made a move after the draft to shore up their goal tending, and signed a handful of recognizable UFAs in the opening days of free agency.
That fills in most of the holes for the NHL roster, but there are still some openings that younger kids could fill. For the rest of the summer, many of the signings may be positioned to be for the Barracuda. It may also be that some of the try out players at this upcoming week’s development camp may allow the Sharks to fill some of those positions (or take notes for future moves). 7 of the 9 drafted players at last week’s draft will be participating in the development camp
On to the news:
To reiterate, the Sharks acquired Martin Jones on 6/30, and signed him to a three year extension (in advance of free agency opening, but it was not announced until 7/2).
On the opening day of free agency, the Sharks addressed their blueline, signing Paul Martin to a four year deal.
