<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bias_it_self</b></div><div>I would rather Wiesblatt play top minutes in the AHL then 4th line. Maybe have Raska play 4th line with Viel. I think Viel-Weatherby-Raska will be our 4th line for probably the next 5-6 years come the start of next season.

Edit: I do really like this AGM. I think the Sharks already have almost every asset they will need for the future except that 1C and 1RHD. Merkley would probably be better suited to playing second paring as Karlsson enters his last years.</div></div>

I'm in the same mindset! we have lots of prospect talent but we lack a top D and 1C prospect. Karlsson is our 1 D for the next 5 years because of his deal, Couture is our 1C for the next year or two but then age is going to slow him down, and Burns is still playing well but he's not a top D anymore.
Ferraro is a stud but I don't see him as a #1 D man (more a really good #2/3 D man.) Bordeleau and Robins both look really promising but I see their ceiling as a solid 2C.
Viel is better suited as a 13th forward in my eyes, Nieto plays PK and is solid defensively and is still only 27/28 and cheap so him on the 4th line is good for me. I think your right about Weisblatt that needs this year and next in the minors before he comes up, but he has high IQ and is fairly feisty so 4th line sheltered min doesn't scare me if he shows well in camp next year, otherwise Pederson, Blichfeld, or Chmevelski would slot in on the 4th line. I prefer them over Raska only because we need more RH shots in our forward group, Raska will be up and down next year and should stick probably in 23-24
and this all is is fluid! players steping up or regressing will alter the lineup but this is my expectation/ Hope going forward.
And I'm getting this ugly feeling in my gut that Merkley might end up being a bust. but we will see.
