My issue with any trade is the cost. They have some decent pieces.
Realistically, the Sharks should take the opportunity to find out what they have in their own kids and give them the NHL time to mature. Braun, Joslin and Moore are older and if they aren't going to cut it soon will need to be cut loose. There really isn't a lot of time for them to develop in the AHL any further. Heck, Moore has a one-way contract for next year.
Totally agree Jeasy. Look at Brauns performance thus far, being he has gotten an opportunity! The longer we hold on to the likes of Wallin and Huskins, the lesser chance we have to see what our AHL staff will give us. Braun has been a very decent surprise (albeit, it is still early for him and he could turn out to be a bust but, without the chance, we'll never know). Let's see when all come back healthy if he will continue to get the opportunity. Moore is another whom we could be wasting away with. This guy definitely deserves a 'consistent' shot with the big club.
