Sharks fans will be disappointed with the return.

You won't get a franchise young player in return. Not going to happen.

What you would get is three or four nice pieces back. Likely a team's top prospect (depending on said prospect, obviously), and two or three really nice prospects, young players, or picks. Teams simply do not trade franchise young players for aging stars.
