What if the Sharks traded Boyle? Assuming they got no rosterable assets back, they'd have a lot more to play with; money I would use to sign a replacement D-man:
Good point. Personally, I am betting that, win or lose this season, this is going to be the case.

The D and in the net, we have no re-building to do and up front, Thornton and Patty are still of decent age with a few years ahead of them, followed by some young players in Pav's, Couture, Desjardins, Wingels, Sheppard, Kennedy and Galiardi (aside from any newcomers via free agency and/or trades or one via the system). So, a bit of work in the forwards but, nothing of major necessity other than depth and a skilled addition(s). That is without mentioning Havlat and Clowe in there whom are as well still of decent age but, yet to see what will be done with them this summer 'if' anything. Wondering if Havlat will be a buyout if he cannot turn himself around and bring some much needed offense.
