You're probably right, but I wish one of these years (or should I say, one of these decades) I'd like to see the Sharks trade (or acquire through waivers or even free agency I suppose) for another team's garbage and then such player in our system flourishes into a superstar (or very good), like the Panthers waiving Grabner and the Isles pick him up and he scores 34 goals that year. I know Grabner was a 1st round pick, but still, somehow he was exposed on waivers and showed up huge for the Isles.

I say once a decade because it doesn't happen often, but when it does it's beautiful. Would be spectacular if you do it when you are a contender and it elevates you to a Cup contender/champion.
