Sharks acquire Jets captain Andrew Ladd from Winnipeg.
2013 2nd (Conditional on T. Mitchell re-signing)
Sharks GM Matt trick: We are thrilled to be bringing in a two time Stanley Cup Champion in Andrew Ladd. In addition to being a 30 goal threat, he is excellent defensively and can be counted on for clutch goals. Ladd helps us fix our bottom six now, while also providing a perfect fit our up and coming core of Burns, Vlasic, Demers, Braun, Nieto, Sgarbossa, Pavelski, and Couture long term. Given our weakness of winger depth beyond 30 year-old Marleau, Clowe and Havlat, he is a tremendous fit for our future. On the downside we gave up two quality players in Niittymaki and Mitchell, and two key future assets in Doherty and our 1st in 2012. We have agreed to honor Ladd's LNTC which goes into effect next year.
San Jose will continue to pursue a 9 right wing. We believe we can spend up to 4.5 million on that player (although we need to confirm our cap numbers), and are willing to trade Petrecki, our 2013 1st, and 2012 2nds to get that done.
