And given Wilson's statement, Pavleski might be available if a team has what the Sharks are looking for.

I.e.; as you pointed out....Wingers are a priority. And looking at their roster, they have some holes to fill on D. (Murray is long in the tooth and slower than molasses.)

So the Sabres have players at both positions that would interest the Sharks.

Just speculation, no inside knowledge here.
We should probably debate this further under the Sabres' offseason thread rather than this generalized NHL thread.....
