Update on McNally
hes been ruled ineligible to play for Harvard. now hes left with two options, sign with the canucks, or wait to become a free agent (which due to his academic problems would be summer next year, not this year)

McNally is between a rock and a hard place... And Benning still doesn't seem very interested even knowing they can throw peanuts at him money wise :s

I think Benning is so focused on the draft right now that's all that matters to him. Fuck I'm worried Benning is going me to make a stupid WTF move or signing dammit

Chris Jericho with Bobby Hull

TIJ - EP148 - Bobby Hull

listening to that man talk about his playing days is wonderful, and its pretty awesome listening to Jericho talk to former/current hockey players as he grew up with hockey in his blood

And, given that Benning had said all year that he wasn't going to pick up rentals at the deadline, it's not like there was a plan in place to use that cap space to pick up a highly-paid rental.

As for Luongo, he should've been dealt years ago, once it was known he no longer wished to be here. Dealing Schneider was a terrible choice (again, choosing the guy that doesn't want to be here rather than the one who does), but Horvat is softening that blow.
We didn't need Garrison's cap space this year, but it gives the team flexibility to make the moves IF the right deal comes along, or IF the need arises. Pressed up against the cap, you can't do a lick if something unexpected comes up. To me anyways, not willing to pick up a highly paid rental =/= an unwillingness to use up the cap space. But it has to be the right scenario.

Regarding Sbisa, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for last year (do we have a choice?). He's young, he'll learn. He plays a mean game, at times, which Garrison never did/would.

With Schneider getting traded, I have no problems with that in and of itself. He was the more valuable/tradeable asset, didn't have a lifetime contract attached to him, and Luongo is still a more than serviceable starter. I only wish Schneider was traded earlier to maximize the returns, not when the gun was pointed to MG's head with no takers for Luongo. I also wish Luongo wasn't so emo in his younger days, not getting a clutch playoff game start does not mean you have lost your starter's job for good and time to move on, but how much of that was also driven by local media?

I like Lack how I like Schneider, but if the deal is there you make it because he's the most valuable/tradeable goalie asset we have right now and the move needs to be made. Who knows what the market will be like as the summer goes on

Just my opinion.

Okposo on the trading block as NYI tries to recoup a 1st round pick.
Would be a pretty good pick up for any team...he's still got one year left on a low cap hit and will probably have a good bounce back year. I'd imagine the price would be pretty steep though.

Can't wait to see how the draft unfolds.

Are the Sharks gonna make a blockbuster trade? -getting rid of Thornton and/or Marleau to shake up the team's culture and dump salary?

Jumbo Joe isn't happy with the things that the GM Wilson said about him.
-will not be surprised if the Sharks get rid of him.

Sharks working on a blockbuster? - Article - TSN

Blockbuster Looming?

The San Jose Sharks made steps to implement a culture change in the dressing room last off-season, and are expected to continue that process this year.

Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area, speculates the Sharks could do something big before or at the draft later this week.

“There’s a real possibility that there could be a blockbuster in the works involving one of the team’s core players.

Would aging veterans Joe Thornton and/or Patrick Marleau prefer to relocate to a team that has a better chance of winning in the immediate future? Was Brent Burns shifted back to defense last season in order to increase his trade value? Is Logan Couture still happy here, after he was critical of the team’s “not great” culture? Is Justin Braun expendable after he struggled in the first year after signing a big contract extension? These are all fair questions.”

The Sharks also have ample cap space and Kurz reports the possibility they get in the restricted free agent market.

“Wilson has hinted for months that the Sharks could be in a position to take advantage of a club that is up against the cap. Perhaps they are readying an offer sheet or two for a top restricted free agent.

There should be plenty of options, and Wilson will weigh them all leading up to the draft and in the weeks that follow.”

-getting the teenage mutant ninja hertl on the Canucks would be sweet!

-not gonna happen though. If this trade ever happened, it would be a reverse reaction to the "WTF!" moment when Gillis traded Schneider away.

We have more players than jobs available. Would be nice to clear out some players via trade to acquire either fewer, better assets or grab futures (draft picks, prospects) rather than lose them to waivers in the fall. Obviously, not everyone on this list is worth assets in a trade (i.e. McMillan).

Choose 14:

D. Sedin (3 x $7M)
H. Sedin (3 x $7M)
Vrbata (1 x $5M)
Burrows (2 x $4.5M)
Dorsett (4 x $2.65M)
Hansen (3 x $2.5M)
Higgins (2 x $2.5M)
Bonino (2 x $1.9M)
Kassian (1 x $1.75M)
Richardson (UFA)
Horvat ($0.894M)
Vey (RFA)
McMillan (RFA)
Kenins ($0.575M) [Waiver exempt]
Baertschi (RFA)
Virtanen ($0.894M) [Ineligible to play in AHL]
Jensen ($0.863M)
Gaunce ($0.863M) [Waiver exempt]
Grenier (RFA)
Archibald (UFA)
Friesen (2 x $0.575M)

Choose 7:

Edler (4 x $5M)
Bieksa (1 x $4.6M)
Hamhuis (1 x $4.5M)
Tanev (5 x $4.45M)
Sbisa (3 x $3.6M)
Weber (RFA)
Stanton (RFA)
Clendening (RFA)
Andersson (RFA)
Corrado (RFA)

Choose 2:

Miller (2 x $6M)
Markstrom (RFA)
Lack (1 x $1.15M)

Cap is set at 71.4M this year. Higher than some predicted at just under 70M. It gives us an extra million to play with?
