Yes. Fired for letting a 3rd liner walk. They depleted their system of any worthwhile prospects/callups in the trades for Winnik/Galiardi and Burns. Now they're so desperate for forward depth they had to sign Scott Gomez off the scrap heap and have 31-year-old career minor leaguer Bracken Kearns filling in for Martin Havlat on their top six. On top of all this, they don't have anyone in their forward ranks who can play anything resembling a shutdown role. Winnik could at least help in that endeavor.

I'm just confused at what Wilson has been trying to do the past couple seasons. I think the window of opportunity for the Sharks has passed. They have some very tough decisions to make this offseason. If I'm Wilson I do a complete overhaul--jettison Thornton/Marleau, and try a quick rebuild centered around Couture/Pavelski.
