The San Jose Sharks have had a very active offseason. Roster retooling and refining has been underway since the Setoguchi-Burns trade on draft day, and the Sharks seem to have a couple more moves up their sleeves.

Most fans and writers have pointed out two glaring holes on this team. The first is the lack of an offensively gifted winger on the third line, and the second is the lack of a steady veteran to anchor the fourth line.

Many ideas have been thrown around. Jamie McGinn to the third line. Re-signing Kyle Wellwood. Signing J.P. Dumont and Chris Drury. Many more.

The Sharks don't have the forwards on their team right now that will make these problems go away, but with some out of the box thinking, the Sharks can vastly improve their depth before making any moves.
