<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jamnjon</b></div><div>Chicago probably needs to add to this trade. Puckpedia's pick value suggests they'd add pick 69 to have fair value and the Hawks have 67 and 72. The Athletic's pick value chart suggests 0.3 GSVA in favor of Chicago, but the team trading up in the first round typically overpays by 10-20%. 0.3 GSVA is anywhere from pick 116-139 to make it even, 10% overpay on the combined 14+42 would need 1.01 GSVA (pick 65-68), and 20% overpay on the combined picks would need 1.72 GSVA (46-48). If it's just the overpay on 14 and fair value on 42 10% overpay is 0.81 GSVA (pick 73-77) and 20% overpay is 1.32 GSVA (pick 56 or 57).

My guess is either one of their thirds gets it done, but I'd think the Sharks would wait until draft day and see how things unfold to see if a player they want slips to 14.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bedsy_Burner</b></div><div>The value is good, it even favors CHI a little bit. I'm just not sure what the move gets us at this point, and I'm not a fan of giving up the 34th OA pick. I want to be there right at the beginning of the 2nd round to snag whoever slips. But it's not a bad idea. Maybe it is a whole lot more alluring as a draft day trade, if there is someone there KD really wants.</div></div>

I've updated the trade given the puckpedia/GSVA analysis to reflect a slight overpay by Chicago.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AStovetop</b></div><div>I feel like Carrier is going to have a lot of people interested, not sure he'd have a ton of interest in SJ. I could see Carolina picking him up ifPesce doesn't re-sign.</div></div>
You're right about interest from other teams, so we'd have to promise more money (which we can) and an expanded role. It's unclear if he would prioritize that over a more competitive team. But, if we have to outbid other teams, we really don't want to pay above market rate for a middle tier player.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AStovetop</b></div><div>Chatfield would be a nice pick up. I'd also think Roy, Pesce, maybe Dumba would be some guys Grier will be looking at if they price themselves out from other teams. I'd also be ok with having Ferraro or Vlasic play full time on the Right side to allow Thrun &amp; Shakir develop on their strong side.</div></div>
I'm glad you agree on Chatfield. I'm inclined to believe his great results in safer minutes could project to an expanded role.

I feel the same argument you made against Carrier can be used for Roy. He will demand even more interest. That's not too say we shouldn't sign him, but he's also a bit older. All three UFAs I targeted are 27 currently, and their career trajectory might line up better with our rebuild.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AStovetop</b></div><div>In terms of forwards I think Gushchin more than deserves an NHL spot to start like Bordeleau and Eklund had this season. Graf has been fantastic as well. If they're going to have vets take young guys spots than they need to be better players than Mikheyev or Trenin. That second line would destroy Celebrini's development.</div></div>
Graf should play the majority of his minutes in the AHL next season. Unless his physicality and skating improve significantly over the summer, he's not likely to start on the opening NHL roster. That's not to say he won't play at all for the Sharks. Injuries and slumps will open up opportunities for Gushchin, Bordeleau, and Graf, but we shouldn't just hand them the spot.

I don't know why you're so down on Mikheyev. He has had great underlying numbers in Vancouver and Toronto. Also has decent speed and size. He would instantly be one of our top 4 forwards.

Trenin is maybe a bit superfluous since he is more of a role player and you don't need to sign those so early in rebuild. But, I believe he would improve our putrid PK. His size would also fit with Grier's philosophy, and again, he is on the younger side.
