It's really a question of cap management. On our team, it is possible that Sharp's contract might be one that we have to move to ensure we have the depth to be an elite contender.
It likely depends on how guys like Morin, McNeil, Danaut, Hayes etc. perform over the next year or so. If they can cheap bottom 6 guys, we may well continue to fit Sharp's contract into the mix, much like the emergence of Saad and Shaw have helped immensely in that area.
If the Hawks needed to move one of the core players Sharp would certainly be it. But I just don't think they will have to move a core player. The Hawks won't move nor should they move Sharp to sign Bickell, Stalberg or other 3rd line players. The prospect pool should replace them.
Saad is the only player right now that appears will need a large raise when his contract expires. But that doesn't happen for another 2 seasons and there are no secondary players signed past Saad's contract.
Since the cap cannot decrease from 64.3 million and will likely continue to increase, I just don't see why the Hawks would have to deal Sharp.
