Early Line Projections for 2013-14 San Jose Sharks

Martin Havlat is the only San Jose Shark they do not have to find a spot for, as he will start 2013-14 on LTIR

If the 2013-14 San Jose Sharks are at the card table, they have called. If they're at the prosecutor's table, the state rests. As I spelled out for Examiner.com, it seems they will stand pat.

Because of the restrictions of Martin Havlat's cap hit, they have maybe $1 million of wiggle room once you consider they can officially start the season with Tomas Hertl in the system. That does not leave them many free-agent options.

Because of the restrictions of Havlat's predictable injuries, they would officially have a weak forward roster with only 11 players able to dress. Once the season starts, long-term injured reserve (LTIR) becomes an option, giving San Jose the room to add Hertl and a reserve forward to the active payroll.

As it stands now, the 12 forwards that will be dressed on a nightly basis seems pretty obvious. The bigger questions are who plays where, and who is in the press box?
