Forgot I was apart of the team! Does the GM also share my opinions on personnel, too?!

I think what gets lost in these arguments is that online hockey fans are considered a fringe in terms of their opinions. SJ is such a non hockey market that they could put together a highlight package of Dion Smash greatest hits and do a better job of selling that to causal California fans than Vlasic's strong positional play.

Sharks fans are actually quite annoying, never realized. I guess if you want to hang on to your core of Demers, Braun, Stuart, Boyle on the back-end, go for it! After-all, they're all certainly better than Dion. Sheppard might make a good return for our #1 D, not sure if the Sharks would want to throw in Hamilton, though.

As a Leafs fan, I can't criticize your team, but wow; SJ's blueline is shallow at best, realize this and you might find success. How can you, with a straight face, argue that Braun/Demers/whoever (not named Vlasic) are better than Phaneuf? I've definitely bashed the guy from time to time but he is still a great #2 defenseman, capable of playing #1 minutes.

Keep making those early exits
Sharks fans recognize we are weak on the back end. Does that mean we give up our top scorer for someone making more than any of our other players? No.

Yes, because Dion hitting his own players and having people skate around him is much more marketable!

I think the most I'd offer as an Avs fan is:

PAP (capable top 6 winger)
choice of either Elliott, Pickard or Hishon (decent prospect)
1st rd pick (21st-24th pick)

Most likely not even close, but I wouldn't give up any big pieces to get a soon to be 30 year old on a 7M per year contract for the next 7 years. He'll probably be worth about half that much by the time the last 3 years come up on that contract.

Like the player just not willing to give up a ton.

You want to talk to us as if we're the ones deciding to hang on to our core then why is it that I can't respond in a similar fashion?

Shows how little you know about the market to call it a non-hockey market. It's one of the biggest hockey markets in America but that's always going to be irrelevant to someone like yourself whose interest isn't the game's health itself.

Although, in this case, the Sharks fans certainly seem the most vocal participants, aside from the "sellers" of course.
Because people keep suggesting time and time again that we should get him but we don't want him. Toronto fans don't seem to realize that and when it finally got through to them that we don't want him they start bashing our team.
