Assume you don't bite on this, but it is about as good as Sharks could afford.

Pavelski (whose value to us is such that a straight up pavelski for RNH is about right, but would have been insulting to you).
Actually, Boyle and Clowe are probably better than you give them credit for. At 36 with 1-1/2 years left on his contract, Boyle is still a top 10 defenseman in the NHL and a top 5 PP QB. Clowe, despite his current snakebit/slightly injured season, is a top 6 with grit and an awesome leader, so is Boyle. Think he and Boyle are exactly what your players need to learn the power game. So, I offered a top pairing D with 2-3 years left in the tank, and a UFA top 6 power forward (if re-signed, probably 3 more "good" years left, too). Assumed it was not enough. I certainly was not trying to be insulting.
