Iginla-Lots of movement but best offer is two young top 6 forwards and a pick. He will likely get moved by tonight
Giordano-A lot of interest but not too much that's interesting me.
Tanguay-Interest has been very lukewarm. He's absolutely available
Cammalleri-Getting some interest. We'll see how it goes.
Bouwmeester-Appears to be staying
Schneider/Luongo continue to receive offers. Schneider will take overpayment. Luongo will take a reasonable return but nothing too extreme, a 1st and/or good prospect should be involved... or a Top 6 W.
Joe Thornton has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Joffrey Lupul and Toronto's 1st round pick in 2012 (5th overall). Toronto will also receive goaltender Harri Sateri.
We're looking to get younger, a fresh start with the forwards who have been struggling for the last couple of years. We also believe that Logan Couture has risen above expectations, and we believe that he will be able to handle more minutes even at such a young age.
The Sharks would like to thank Joe with for his services and wish him the best in Toronto.
We're very happy to add Joffrey to the Sharks. We've kept a close on eye on him since his start in Anaheim, and we believe he is the type of forward that would mesh really well with the current group. Also, a RH shooter on the left side is something we could really use, and we're happy Joffrey could be that guy.
With the 5th overall pick, we've had our eye on a couple of players that we hope to still be available at that spot. We're looking to get younger, and what better way to do that than with a top-5 pick in a very good draft year?
