And after they make this weird trade, who did the Sharks keep? Galiardi, who`s been struggling for years. Meanwhile, Winnik starts the season scoring 4 goals in 2 games.
That trade is looking pretty good for the Avs. Kinda funny in that Sgarbossa was traded for one time phenom John McFarland in the OHL. McFarland plateaued for Saginaw and Sgarbossa immediately broke out. Even now, Sgarbossa is among the rookie point leaders in the AHL while McFarland initially was in the ECHL to begin this season.

San Jose had lost a ton of prospects/picks over the years, although Doug Wilson did sell high on a few guys like Steve Bernier.
