All good moves

Agreed. Keep our defensive depth 8-deep with young guys in Worcester still developing.

Irwin-Boyle
Vlasic-Braun
Stuart-Hannan
Reserve: Tennyson, Demers


However, after signing Kennedy, we are already over the cap. Havlat is going to need to start the season on IR and/or we need to move somebody because we just don't have the cap space.
Also, other confirmed pieces of news:

San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks

Wilson: "Stalock and Sateri will come in to camp and compete for the secondary spot", behind Niemi.


San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks

#SJSharks management and @Burnzie88 decide to move forward at forward for next season. #88 will stay up front.
Tennyson will be sent down for cap purposes

Yes, but I believe they still need to make room because I think even with Tennyson down, that barely puts us at the cap, if Sateri is backing up Niemi. If Stalock is backing up Niemi and Sateri gets sent down, then we're over the cap again. Something's gotta give.

Hmm, it's enough, but would be nice to get that entire 5 million of relief when we get rid of Havlat. Seriously, I cannot see this team having Havlat on the roster anymore by the time the trade deadline rolls around -- at the LATEST.

Was checking to see what additional stuff I could find on Tyler Kennedy. Couple years old, but still some highlights:

Setoguchi got traded to the Winnipeg Jets for a 2nd rounder. I hope Seto helps them get to the playoffs.

Havlat needs to GTFO
I was looking at the Sharks rookie scrimmage article they had up yesterday. I think it'll be interesting to see how some of these guys perform in Worcester this year. Several guys that were added late last season were posting up really good numbers right away so it'll be fun to see if they can continue that.

If you click the link, it has details of all the players' performance and notes some of the guys that are participating as tryouts: http://sharks.nhl.com/v2/ext/PDF/20130710-sharks-prospect-scrimmage-handout.pdf -- This really gives us a nice snap-shot of our farm system right now.

Sharks made some signings too. A little confused as to the reasoning behind bringing back Rob Davison. Never thought he was really anything special. Anyone think they're about to trade Demers or another defenseman? ...

Signings:

G Alex Stalock: http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=677579
F Matt Pelech: http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=677577
D Adam Comrie: http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=677579
D Rob Davison: http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=677578

The guy I'm intrigued by the most is Defenseman Adam Comrie. As a former 3rd-round pick, and based on the numbers he's putting up, the guy clearly has talent. He's still very young (22 years old) and there was clearly no drop-off from the ECHL to AHL when he moved up. He was one of the best players there and it'll be interesting to see if he's one of the semi-late bloomers that buds into an NHL contributor for us. That would bode well for a team that badly needs defensive depth in its prospect farm.
