Marleau - Thornton - Pavelski/Couture
Clowe - Pavelski/Couture - Havlat
Also of note, with the addition of Burns, Pavs won't have to play the point on PP #1 anymore. Instead he can move to a forward spot where he belongs. He will still probably play on PK #1 with Marleau.
BTW. It's very unlikely that Pavelski will be traded. He does too many things well and the Sharks are very high on him. There is nothing in this thread that makes me want to trade him.
Thanks. I think you're either the 2nd or 3rd Sharks fan we've heard from, so us Wings and Caps people have been pretty much taking a free run
I also was not aware that Pavelski plays wing too.
As far as trade goes - the biggest concern when I went to the SJS board was forward depth, so I put something together to address that. A downgrade in Filppula to be sure, but not THAT big of one, and a solid depth forward in Chimera, plus a late first.
So, if you wouldn't make that trade, what WOULD you move Pavelski for, if anything? For the record, I highly doubt the Caps are moving Semin either (or Chimera, who wears an A). Just passing the time.
