Rumblings: Sharks get their man on D in Paul Martin

Veteran defenseman Paul Martin was the San Jose Sharks' No. 1 free agent target, and they got Martin on Wednesday with a reasonable four-year deal worth $4.85 million per year on average.

The Sharks looked at how Martin meshed well with Kris Letang in Pittsburgh and saw the same fit on their team with Brent Burns.

Between trading for goalie Martin Jones and then signing Martin, San Jose GM Doug Wilson has had a good offseason so far.
