Staurt and Sharks agree to deal

The San Jose Sharks and restricted free agent defenceman Brad Stuart have agreed to terms on a new multi-year contract.

The deal will pay Stuart $1.25 million this season, although he will lose a portion of that for missing the first part of the season, and will pay him $1.75 million in the second year.

There is both a player option and club option for a third year that will pay him slightly in excess of $2 million, the precise amount being determined by which party exercises the option.

    I have watched the Sharks for a while, and they needed this move pretty badly. Especially watching the team last night against the Rangers, they were dominated for 40 minutes. The 3rd period was great for the Sharks, and Blackburn was great and it was a bad call by the refs on the penalty shot given to Marleau, but the Sharks have trouble in their own zone, without a doubt. John Davidson mentioned something that i missed, that the Sharks can’t make that sharp first pass from the defensemen to the forwards, and that is where they miss Stuart and retired Suter.

    Lombardi should have had this complete team by game 1, i do think he should get part of the blame for the Sharks slow start of the season.

    This should improve the team as time goes on and Nabokov and Suart will get their games back.

    This is definitly gonna help the team! Too bad they couldn’t have gotten this done along with Nabokov before the season started!

    San Jose made a great move on resigning this up and coming defenseman, he really brings a spark with him every night. Great move for SJ

    Plus this helps me out FINALLY, this guy is on my Fantasy Team!!
