This is definitely part of it. Because the Sharks have been in win-now mode for quite a while, they've shipped out a bunch of 1st and 2nd round picks as well as prospects for roster players in recent years. From 2008-2011 they only had one first rounder (Coyle who was traded) and last year they took Hertl, who I've heard nothing but good things about so far. They have a fairly decent group of D and goaltending prospects, but Pavelski and Clowe aside they flat out stink when it comes to drafting forwards, first round and otherwise.
