As of now, Grier, Roenick, Moen, Goc, Mitchell, Plihal, Staubitz, and Cavanaugh all need new contracts, and the Sharks need the cheapest bottom 6 possible, so Doug very well see Roenick having great value.

If the Sharks win the cup, Blake could retire, but I don't think so. He bought a house and moved his family to San Jose and he is still a very effective player. If he wants to play, every team in the league would love to have him.
Except LA
Ditto. I don't see him coming back here. LA's got O'D signed through next season now, and a top 4 of Doughty, Johnson, Greene, and Quincey. I could see LA looking for another veteran dman but not at Blakes age or price tag.
