    They get a B+ prospect and a 2nd Round pick for a guy that will leave a year from now

    And they would get much more from 10 other teams.

    Go ahead and propose some of those offers and see if other fans will take it for an expiring UFA.

    I love it when people come in and say “that’s not enough” or “he’ll get more elsewhere” and have nothing to back it up. Be constructive or be quiet.

    For a guy they can sign in free agency in a year? No shot any team gives up a 1st and a A prospect.

    They'd get more than that at the TDL next year.

    I guess we'll have to see. I just don't think the Sharks take that package.

    Maybe idk. Another package I think could work is something like Kuzy+2/3 for Hertl would get it done. Washington gets an guy who is better rn while San Jose gets a high upside guy who, if he can get his act together, can either be flipped for more picks or could be the guy San Jose builds around for years to come.

    I think the biggest issue is SJ's plan. They seem lost. I can't tell what direction they're headed. I'm a fan of theirs by the way, so that should tell you something.

    One thing people on this site don't know is that Hertl is a fan favorite. Imagine Marleau being traded in his prime. Regardless of what you'd get, the damage to the franchise would go beyond the trade.

    Yeah I get that, I was reading through some of the SJS Armchair GMs and half of them were calling for a rebuild while the other half wanted the team to go all-in

    True but if it makes the team better in the long run I think most people would forgive (especially if the FO spins it). Like if Kuzy went out and shined for the team and you were guaranteed 4 more years of him I think most fans would forgive.

    Side note: is there any chance SJS trades Evander Kane? If so what do you think he would command

    He just led the team in scoring, but anyone can get traded. 1st for sure and a good prospect.
