I guess you have to give Dean Lombardi credit for being able to develop players. I mean I haven’t seen many players out of San Jose who are superstars. Probably the two strongest ones in the organization that Doug Wilson drafted are Logan Couture and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Marleau was drafted by Lombardi but I can’t say that was a good choice considering the long term results. Doug Wilson is good at getting star players from other teams and keeping them though. Case in point: Joe Thornton and Dan Boyle. Thornton even took a pay cut to stay here. I guess it is debatable as to which skill is more valuable.
Shane Doan. We should trade away Patrick Marleau and try to acquire Shane Doan. He is a free agent this year and 6.9 million dollars in cap space freed up by getting rid of Marleau will give us spending flexibility. That guy actually plays like he cares. In the playoffs, he’ll be making all the big plays and leading when even the coaching staff isn’t. I’m starting a campaign right now: Shane Doan to the Sharks…well, we’ll have the cap space up until we acquire Rick Nash. Man, Doug Wilson better be as shrewd as he makes us think he is. Nash+Doan. It will make the Sharks a force to be reckoned with.
So I’ve done a few recipes on dinners. So I figured I’d look for a desert. I rarely eat deserts so I had no idea where to start…until I saw this.
