Every year, the draft next season is supposed to be great while the one just completed is terrible. Then, you get to January and February and people start talking about how the next draft is horrible, and it build until draft day, when everyone wishes that draft was as good as the one before it.

Rumor is that it's a good draft in the top-10, and then a big drop-off after. If we're at 15, then I think we could move up 5 spots.
The chances of Sgarbossa being the next Eberle, Giroux or Ennis are not very good...he had a phenomenal final year in Junior but I still think his NHL upside is a great 3rd liner, average 2nd liner. Yes, he can always surprise and be a 1st line talent but I wouldn't cound on it.

This draft is very deep on D, not so on forwards. The high end forward prospects will very likely be gone in the first 5-7 picks - so unless the Sharks have someone very specific they want I don't know that they'll have to move up.
