Value of Setoguchi to PIT

If the Sharks consider trading this guy at the draft and not re-sign him, what would it take for the Pens to bring him in?

He's a RFA and made 1.8 this season with the Sharks. Shoots Right, Right Wing.

From THN:
Quote:
SAN JOSE SHAKEUP?
The San Jose Sharks inability to advance beyond the conference final for a second straight season has led to speculation over a roster shakeup this summer.

ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun believed there were “too many passengers” on the San Jose roster, singling out forwards Dany Heatley, Joe Pavelski and Devin Setoguchi. LeBrun wondered if the Sharks might re-sign Setoguchi, a restricted free agent, or explore his trade value at the draft.

Meanwhile, Mark Emmons of the San Jose Mercury News noted Sharks GM Doug Wilson will have to make decisions very soon regarding his pending free agents, which include RFAs Setoguchi, Jamie McGinn and Ben Ferriero, along with unrestricted free agents Ian White, Ben Eager, Kyle Wellwood, Kent Huskins, Jamal Mayers and Scott Nichol.

The media consensus is Wilson needs to bolster his defense corps. White's post-season performance could earn him a new contract, but, according to capgeek.com, San Jose already has $51.8 million invested in 14 players for next season, which doesn’t leave much cap space to add more blueline experience and still re-sign key players. If Wilson hopes to bolster his blueline, it might have to be via the trade route.

Don't expect Heatley or Pavelski to be moved. The former still has three more years (at $7.5 million per season) remaining on his contract, while Pavelski was re-signed last summer to a four-year, $16-million deal. That leaves Setoguchi as a possible trade candidate.
Just wondering.

Based on his last couple seasons, he will prob get a contract around 2-2.5m. Career high of 31 goals, 65 points.

I personally have liked the kid's style for a while, and thinking about a possible Crosby, Neal, Setoguchi line (All same age) sounds like real potential.

Id like to see the pens get him, though i doubt SJ will let him go.

Maybe a 2nd and 3rd rounder for him. Or a prospect and a 4th or 5th.

We missed that boat when we trade Gogo for Neal. Heatley is the one the Sharks should be trying to get rid of.

Theyll be looking for a defensive defenseman and/or some speed in their top 9. Id take seto in a heartbeat but we dont really have much to offer unless theyd settle for draft picks/prospects.

Shhh just let san jose make the mistake of thinking seto is the problem. Not the lazy **** heatley, lack of a 4th line, PK or shutdown defenseman.

Shero needs silence to pull the jedi mind trick.

I can see the Sharks asking for Despres (who' I'd be reluctant to trade) or Beau "Dangles" Bennett... for Setoguchi

Setoguchi would be a perfect fit for this roster... but I just don't think we have the assets to make a deal. San Jose probably would want Staal and I'm guessing that would be a no go for Ray.

Any chance San Jose would have any interest in Niskanen?

Na they have enough offensive defensemen. I could see them wanting to clear cap space for a shutdown top 4 guy especially if seto is looking for 3+.

3 goals were in one game. either way, he did well, but i think they were expecting a bit more out of him. i wouldn't compare him to heatley's passenger status though.

either way, i don't see it happening for the pens esp since he's a RFA

If Shero somehow tricks another team's GM into giving up a 20 goal scorer for Matt freaking Niskanen I will build several shrines, monuments, and churches in his honour.

Getting a bit gready aren't we?

Our team is pretty stacked as it is going into next year. Sure, explore anything, but face up to reality that except for likely adding a $3.5 million or so wing, this is the team we are going to war with. And I would take this team over almost any other team in the league, hands down, as is.

A huge to those who think the Sharks will trade Seto for Letestu +, or a 2nd/3rd. This guy has been one of the best players in these playoffs.

Lovejoy, Strait, Despres & Bortuzzo. Those are the guys SJ would want: good, young defensemen on a cheap contract.

But unless we're willing to give up Despres, I don't think we're going to be able to make a better offer than the 25 other teams that would LOVE to have Setoguchi on their roster.
