Then add on the fact that you are sending 2 Centers when the Sharks are already stacked at that position, and this trade makes sense from any angle at all for the Sharks. It's probably good for the Flames, but it utterly blows for the Sharks.
Nemisz is our #2 ranked offensive prospect... he is not on the hockeybuzz list yet because he hasn't been signed since being drafted in the 1st round of the '08 draft...

and this trade is just as bad if not worse for the Flames... we already suck in the playoffs why do we need Thornton to compound that
