Too expensive and short term deal. Sharks are not going to give up the assets required to get him when they are in the process of selling off assets to ensure the future of the franchise.

It's pretty clear the Sharks planned that if they did not win the cup by this season they would start selling off assets and retooling. The way they structured contracts and the way they continue to sell in the midst of a 5 game winning streak and pretty good odds of making the playoffs.

I think it's pretty likely the Sharks trade at least one big chip in the off-season as well, possibly two (Boyle is likely one) and start next season with a group of new young assets and prospects from the draft. I just don't see any room in that plan where they bring in a 'big money scorer'.
