The defenseman carousel continued to turn in San Jose and the results haven't turned out to be any more positive for the Sharks, as they suffered another loss to a division opponent on Monday night. Jason Demers was again a healthy scratch for the Sharks, as he traded places with Justin Braun again, but the 2-0 loss will likely signal another change in the guard, since there wasn't enough defense and certainly no offense to speak of in this contest.
Demers has 1 goal and 2 assists in 11 games for the Sharks this year, a far cry from some of the scoring paces he has had in the previous couple of seasons. But he's been on the blog enough times already this year, that you know that already.
Fortunately, thanks to some of the results from the early part of the waiver draft, we know that Derek W. will be dropping Demers for Marc-Andre Bergeron, so there will definitely be an upgrade in both games played and in scoring production for Derek. I'm sure for Derek, not to mention most people in the draft, he cannot wait for Week Ten to start and have his new prize dress for his pool team.
