Earlier in his career I know he had unbelievably bad luck with injuries, but he's played 73 and 67 games over the last two years, so while his injury history is worrisome it's not necessarily a deal breaker for me, at least not any moreso than Willie Mitchell's would have been.

Dangle a Torrey Mitchell or Jamie McGinn (or a not-1st-round pick) at St. Lou and see if they bite, perhaps. It certainly shouldn't cost much more than that.
St. Louis said they want a scoring forward, so that certainly eliminates Mitchell, if not both of them. Sharks need to think big when they go out to acquire a dman, no more stop gaps. We need a stud or future stud.
