Signings and Trash Talk

Jeremy Roenick just signed with the San Jose Sharks. This allows me the first opportunity to trash-talk during the new season with my Sharks-fan-friend, Jim.

Jim commented on my posts about Roenick back in July:

Roenick=washed up, done, loudmouth, that still thinks he can play like he did 10 years ago, he should have left a very very long time ago, kinda feel the same way about Tkachuk.
I gotta give the Roenick props. His personal website (which most hockey players don't even have) already has the news updated. Kinda funny though, his site links to the TSN article about it, not the Sharks page making the announcement.

In only partially related news: The Predators just signed another two-way prospect forward, Josh Langfeld. Of course, this is a 'prospect' that is 30 years old, so i think this is more about depth than future.

well I would have updated on this, but my role at work doesnt allow for much net surfing, nice scoop.

My stance stays the same on Roenick, I dont care for him and dont think he will do much more than Guerin did for us late last season (waste of $ if you ask me). I quote Doug Wilson.

“We feel he can add something to our talented group of players on our club and we feel that this is an environment where Jeremy can be successful.”

He can add "something". I think veteran locker room leadership is what he is referring to here. I dont think he will make it the entire season with us. I am scratching my head on this pick up really, he doesnt have the skills anymore. On the otherhand, he will be on a team that wont require too much from him. Just be there when we need you, make the plays, rally the troops. I am conflicted. He could thrive on a team of stars, where he isnt needed to be 1.

the season will tell. This is a suprise for sure.

I will say this though. He will dow more with the Sharks then if he did sign with the Preds. I dont think in a role where he will be relied upon to be 1 of the core stars, he will produce.

btw I didnt see any trash talk in your post. Or was pointing out my dislike for JR consider trash talk? ;o)
