There has been much discussion of the San Jose Sharks' trade options so far this offseason. The slew of rumors around this team has gone from the franchise being wildly interested in Rick Nash to Patrick Marleau being on the trade block for the umpteenth time, and even the Sharks shopping Martin Havlat.
San Jose is in desperate need of a change of image, but there are some who may be taking these rumors a little too far.
General manager Doug Wilson, who is the mastermind behind several big trades over the past few years, is accustomed to this at this period of the NHL offseason. With a reputation like his, the Sharks are an obvious choice to make significant moves this offseason.
If the Sharks are to contend next season, change needs to be made. These rumors insinuate just that for Wilson and company, but we will lie in wait to see if they are true.
