San Jose Sharks Free Agency: 5 Players Who Should Be On Their Radar

The San Jose Sharks' inability to get passed the Western Conference Finals has some wondering whether or not GM Doug Wilson will decide to redesign this team for the future.

The Western Conference runner-ups will have to deal with 23 prospective free agents on their current team this summer.

No, these free agents will not affect the core of the Sharks. However losing them will alter both the depth of San Jose and which direction they wish to take the defense.

Notable free agents for the team include Devin Setoguchi, Ian White, Niclas Wallin, Kyle Wellwood and Scott Nichol.

Setoguchi—a restricted free agent—was involved in trade rumors throughout last season. There is speculation that his time in San Jose may be coming to an end.

However, many must believe that a primary focus of the Sharks is on their blue line, which is why the spotlight this offseason will be on their dealings with White, Huskins and Wallin.

Who will stay, and who will go?

Odds are that they sign one of those three players. This will leave free agency as a great time to pick up a star defenseman.

The hoopla begins on July 1—the national day of Canada—when the country to the north celebrates both their national holiday and the hectic start of NHL free agency.

Here are five players that should be on the Sharks' radar when the pandemonium begins.
