1. The Sharks are only a season removed from 2 WCF appearances. The majority of the blame for the 1st round exit last season is on the coaches, not the players.
2. I already elaborated how the Sharks won't be a mediocre team in a few years. Thornton and Marleau will be 2nd liners at worst. Pavelski will be in his prime. Couture won't even be in his prime yet. Their d-core will be more than solid.
3. You haven't proven anything. Like I said initially, you're speaking hypotheticals without giving any specifics. Who are they trading Thornton and Marleau for that will make them "contending for a while".
