5 Players That Could Put the San Jose Sharks over the Top

July first has come and gone and the majority of this year's free agent crop have already found new homes throughout the NHL or overseas. The Sharks have been relatively inactive in the free agent market thus far, bringing in only two role players in rugged defenseman Jim Vandermeer (one year at $1 million) and center Michal Handzus (two years at $2.5 million).

General manager Doug Wilson did make a big splash earlier this week in the trade market, however, by trading sniper Dany Heatley to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for speedy winger Martin Havlat. By completing this deal, Wilson freed up $2.5 million in cap space, providing him with enough wiggle room to fill out the Sharks' third and fourth lines and possibly add another depth defenseman.
