There's just no guarantee that we get good value in return. Plus, even if we move all those guys, I still don't think the Sharks are bad enough to get a top 5 pick.
I think DW's biggest failure as a GM thus far has been trading too many picks/prospects for rentals.
We just need to hang on to our 1st's and 2nd's from here on out and we'll be fine.
The other issue is that it's not ever going to be as simple as trading those guys for picks or prospects. Most teams that are contenders that they would be willing to go to, with the exception of Boyle because his clause is specific and more open, is that those teams won't likely have the cap space to take on that kind of contract unless the Sharks took back cap space.
