Devin Setoguchi: Was San Jose Sharks Trade Worth It?

I didn't watch the NHL draft.

Yesterday, I watched the NBA draft, because the Warriors had the No. 11 pick and I was incredibly anxious about what they'd do with it. There was also heavy speculation that they would make a move during the draft.

But today, I did not watch. I had little interest in what the Sharks did with the No. 28 pick and assumed that Devin Setoguchi was going to stay after signing a contract extension earlier this week.

As it turned out, the Sharks teamed up with the Minnesota Wild to make headlines greater than the No. 1 pick himself and probably the biggest blockbuster trade this offseason so far.

The Sharks sent Setoguchi, Charlie Coyle and their first-round pick to Minnesota for Brent Burns. Both fanbases are excited, to say the least.

However, this was not necessarily a "both teams get better" move. Both the Sharks and the Wild took tremendous risks, trading seemingly vital cogs for hopefully perfect pieces.
