The San Jose Sharks are heading down the stretch and preparing to put their team through the playoff push that will test their mettle and toughness.
With the deadline fast approaching, this is again that time of the year that provides change and projections for many teams both in the hunt and out.
The winds of change have begun to blow through the Shark roster, with the recent additions of Ben Eager and Kyle Wellwood. With the Western Conference as tight as ever, and the Eastern Conference playoff picture slowly rounding out to form, player movement is right around the corner.
With teams falling out of contention for the playoffs, pending free agents, players that have fallen out of favor and players valuable to playoff teams will be dealt to acquire assets for the future.
By now the inconsistencies of this season are clearly evident, and the need to bolster the Shark blue line was never more prevalent than now.
Here is a list of possible trade targets and teams for the San Jose Sharks.
For the purpose of discussion, I have excluded movement clauses on contracts for this article.
