Add top 6 F
resign Nabby or bring in vet (Turco)

- This likely means the Sharks are looking to spend a lot less between the pipes.

I could see a guy like Ellis being brought in as the #1. The savings is used to sign the top RFA and one is let go in order to bring in a top 4 D.

Of course if Nabby is big in the playoffs all bets are off
I am next to certain that regardless of how Patty or Nabby play out, they're keeping Pavelski and Setoguchi. If anything, Clowe is the most expendable in terms of a big money asset they'd move to keep guys around. Personally however, I'd look into moving Douglas Murray first. And I know I'm in the minority on that but I just can't see him being the correct way to go as a top four defenseman and is paid too much to be a #5, imo.
