The Sharks have a surplus of forwards, such that they can scratch Joel Ward and still beat Calgary badly.  But questions loom on the horizon.

    File this under highly unlikely but
    Braun + hertl for shattenkirk ?
    Vlassic – shattenkirk pair would look really nice together plus if the Sharks are going to lose a d-man in the expansion draft for nothing might as well get something.

    My healthy forward lineup card:


    With Goldobin, Carpy, Goodrow, Sorensen and O’Regan nipping at their heels.

    D doesn’t need adjusting, but I’d like to see Martin or Dillon get a few nights off.

    Then there’s Heed, Mueller and Ryan with the ‘Cuda waiting for their chances, too.

    Love the organizational depth at the moment. DW really deserves a lot of credit for this.

    P.S. Donskoi is exempt from the expansion draft.

    Great episode. Though I am not convinced Marleau is gone next year. Right now, he’s a much better player than Boedker, who was signed to replace Patty. Marleau is playing over 20 min a game, on the top line. You could not trust Boedker with those kind of minutes. Someone needs to be a left-handed top 6 forward.

  5. James says:

    Good episode guys. I didn’t know Ward had a no-move clause. Best case draft scenario: Boedker catches fire and starts scoring, Hertl comes back healthy, Sharks protect 8 skaters including Braun and Hertl, then Vegas picks Boedker and we can keep Tierney.

  6. Theo says:

    You mentioned Ward must be protected, but Kurz’s article says otherwise. 4th period lists him as having a “limited” no trade clause. Who knows if “limited” no trade contracts must be protected. I’m sure we’ll hear more about the rules as the trade deadline approaches.
