Could be, but it's hard to imagine that the Sharks are pushing out Drew. Let's not forget that Drew already left once to be closer to his family. He could do it again.

IMHO, from everything I see with Drew's popularity with the fanbase, it's hard to see the Sharks wanting to force out Drew. IMHO, it's more likely that Drew has told the Sharks he may not return and that the Sharks themselves should groom a replacement. If Drew has to leave again for family reasons, I'd rather have Jamie then try another Marty McSorely experiment (Went from doing in-studio analysis for Ducks/Kings in 05-06 directly to color commentary with Randy Hahn in 06-07) that's for sure.
