Either way, I don't think DW should be closed off to the idea of adding any snipers than can skate. Speed and hands are at a premium right now for sure.
He's not going to come here even if that was the case. He'd be further away from Russia, and as a few people have pointed out he doesn't speak english well and there are no Russian players on the Sharks. As far as I know the only Russian player we even had in the system was Sobchenko until he died. The only reason I could see him coming here is because he get's overpaid, and DW does not overpay for star free agents.

Honestly, I think we have a better shot at Parise, and that isn't saying a whole lot.

Nash is more likely followed by Ryan, or someone totally out of the blue.
