Yeah that's an interesting hypothesis. Maybe if SJ doesn't feel like they have a chance at the Cup they'll trade him.

They'd have to do it at deadline and they're in a division where they'll easily get a top3 spot.

To me it's bery unlikely they'll trade him.

More interesting is the case of Pavelski's re-signing along with potential Karlsson's extension..

It's unlikely but it's still possible. If not, they wouldn't have add that to the trade IMO.

Henrik Zetterberg officially is done, will not play again. Going on LTIR. Degenerative back condition. He didn't practice last season and played 82 games anyways.

Feels bad, man.

I was so hyped at July 1st hoping for Tavares, then there was almost complete silence from the Sharks and now this blockbuster! PHEW! I really do hope that they can convince him to re-sign with the team :-k

It seems they're confident he'll re-sign.

Contract will most probably be based on Doughty's, and that's fair enough for EK65 imo.

It's gonna be hard for them to resign Pavelski though but I guess Thornton doesn't have many seasons left, so it will free cap space.

It's very likely Thornton's playing his last season, and I'd let go Pavs (34yo) if I it means keeping Karlsson for 8 years..
