Seriously.

Having Justin Shultz and Boyle as your first PP is ridiculous.
If they don't trade him the Sharks may end up having to buyout Boyle. At a cap hit of $6.6M and a year left on his deal there is no significant market for a soon to be 37 year old smallish offensive defenseman with 12 points in 26 games.

I think that the Sharks would seriously consider Jones and N. Schultz for Boyle and Clowe if they decide to blow it up.

From the Oilers perspective, if they sign Clowe and keep Boyle they have added a significant amount to their cap next year. YOu are looking at $5-6M more in cap space over Schultz and Jones. I am not at all sure they would do this, and certainly they would not if it was also at the expense of their 1st.
