That would be an absolutely massive failure. Either re-sign them, or trade them (if you can) this off-season. Those are the only options I would consider.
Who said Marleau or Thornton are going to waive their NMC? An educated guess is that Wilson is going to sign Marleau and Thornton to a reduced salary, and give Couture a significant raise. Pavelski and Boyle are the only tradable assets the Sharks have moving into 2014. Moving Boyle takes away a lot from the backend and Pavelski will create a black hole in the bottom 6 as well as a the top 6. Unless they are getting a solid young prospects like a Couturier.
