Yannick Weber - RH-D (RFA) - promising puck mover with a heck of a shot - fair defensively but still young and his development has not peaked - Mentored by Boyle he could turn into a gem.
Danny Kristo - RH-RW (NCAA) - Was key to USA.Jr team. Speed & Skill. A very high prospect for MTL.
Rights to Alexei Yemelin (KHL) - LH-D - Has all the requirement of a defensive stalwart - Is proven and recognized in the KHL.
This is not a thumbs up or down, but the Sharks have Braun in the minors who is effectively a Weber clone. Demers has the same attributes as well. The Sharks do not need another RH dman who is effective on PP. They are more in the market for an experienced puckmover with defensive abilities (think more along the lines of Gorges).
