Especially when we could get a winger like eager for nothing more than a 5th rd pick? The 2nd is a non-issue as the sharks are looking to win now not rebuild.

When making a proposal you need to attempt to fill the needs of both teams, not just yours. What do the sharks need? A top end dman. Does your proposal give the sharks what they need? No. Therefore, why even bother making the proposal? If it doesn't meet the needs or some of the needs of both teams, then this is a value of thread not proposal.
Because Setoguchi isn't helping them much at all this year, and Dupuis is not only a much better player than Eager, he would currently bring more to the Sharks than Setoguchi.

And like you say, the Sharks are looking to win now.

But as has already been pointed out, the acquisitions of Wellwood and Eager have created a bit of a forward glut for the Sharks.
