...and drink no wine, and are therefore no good at parties
I had this big post written up about how the Sharks were trying to get Scott Niedermayer, a veteran defensman who is one of many players up for grabs in the current crazy NHL post-salary-cap free agent market.
Then he went to go play with his brother Rob in Anaheim
. Oh well.
Apparently the Sharks are still gunning for winger Paul Kariya
who averages 31.1 goals per season (37.6 in season where he plays at least 70 games), and had a high of 50 goals/108 points in 95-96... though recently, his numbers haven't been quite that good.
Still, Kariya's a leader and would be a good addition to the Sharks squad...
Though I'd rather have had Niedermayer, especially after blueliner Mike Rathje... a San Jose draft pick in 1992... left to the Philadelphia Flyers, along with a bunch of other brand-new flyers (including superstud Peter Forsberg).
Anyway, go Sharks!
