Truthfully i don't think the sharks are interested in J.L. - DW is always talking to GMs about players and is known as a "terrible tire kicker". This is just noise in the system resulting from DWs regular GM chatter.
The fact that he's not stated anything about the teams needs at this time and appears to be not taking action is a concern. There could be lots of action, just that he's secretive and we'll not know until it's a done deal. It's also possible that other GMs won't deal with him as he'll never offer enough to swing the deal and or they feel he's just wasting their time kicking the tires so to speak. I also believe that in the cap based era, deals for high end D are hard to make do to market economics of supply (small) and demand (high).
None of us arm chair GMs will ever know what's going on until it happens - all we can to is ***** and speculate. In the end DWs judged on his teams performance in which we can't completely evaluate until the season is over or near over.
I have to believe given that we all see the teams needs that DW does also.
