Just to make a point. IMHO, since elite UFA's in their prime with no connection here have ever signed with the Sharks, there is no point in discussing. IMHO, it's like discussing whether the Sharks will play any games next season on the moon. But again, IMHO.

As to hockey media, when they discuss where elite UFA's in their prime with no prev Sharks connection will go, and they want to say they'll go the Sharks, they need to acknowledge that the Sharks landing such a player is extremely unlikely given the history (which hockey media never seems to know since they think since elite players who get traded here love it, that somehow means elite UFA's with no connection will want to be here too. Doesn't work that way, as Sharks franchise history has shown) and would be a first in franchise history. Without that, these articles saying Parise or Suter or whomever of that ilk is going to the Sharks (unless they played here before) has no credability whatsoever.
