And I guess we just disagree on the plan of this team. You're right, I do have trouble seeing management go for a big youth movement, but personally I think that's what needs to happen.
The Sharks aren't going to sacrifice next season, we both know that. The only way they deal for futures, even if it is just one year away, is by trading excess/replaceable players.

Thornton isn't that kind of guy. I don't think the team needs a big youth movement but they need to start thinking about getting value for certain guys and finding ways to get depth, speed, and youth throughout their lineup.
