Because they still have Thorton, Marleau and possibly even Pavelski to try and convince that this team is a team they should want to stay with after next season and is committed to winning in the next few years.

If this team trades Boyle for strictly a package of futures that are years away from making any kind of impact why would those players if they really want to win a championship stay beyond next year?

1.66 million in cap space is nothing to sneeze at either. 1.66 million can buy quite the difference in players.

Anyways I'll drop the Martin for Boyle talk.

If the Sharks are serious about trading Boyle I do think you'd end up seeing a Dman with a decent size salary coming back like a Martin, Liles, Meszaros to help fill the minutes lost by trading Boyle and for the cap to work for the team trading for him.

The Sharks will need that D to because once you remove Boyle that isn't nearly as good because every player will be slotted one spot higher then they've been and their weaknesses will start getting exposed.
