SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed defenseman Justin Braun to a five-year contract extension. The extension, which will commence next season, places Braun under contract with the Sharks through the 2019-20 season.
"Justin has emerged as one of our most well-rounded and dependable defensemen," said Wilson. "He's an excellent skater who excels in matching up against the opponents top players on a nightly basis and fits in well with our core group of younger players. We feel Justin has just scratched the surface of his talent and we are excited to have him under contract for the next six seasons."
The weather forecast last night went something like this: “No change in sight, lows in the 50s tonight, clear tomorrow with a high of 78.” That’s kind of how I feel about the Sharks roster right now: no worries. I’m a fairly easy sell, but I think in this case I’m not being unreasonable. For what it’s worth, Brodie Brazil is running a poll on FaceBook to see what FB fans think. So far, team “improved” is winning.
In a Twitter discussion yesterday that I can’t believe I horned in on, a certain magazine writer insisted that last season’s Sharks were better than the current roster, that if they had just kept the same group, they would have done better this year. He didn’t specifically say we need Wallin and Huskins back, just said last season the team was better.
