Plus, the Sharks don't have a pick until the 4th round, and DW loves his picks/trading them away. Knowing him, he may even trade the pick away to get more picks.
I also think the other player would be someone like Carle since he is an offensive defenseman that the Jackets need and is young. Plus, Carle makes about the same amount as Zherdev, so the Sharks would basically be dumping close to 6.5 million in salary that can be used directly to re-signing Campbell.
