only two players from the wild on the Team really, more home grown talent still

How it all breaks down

To San Jose:
Brent Burns (resigned at a great deal)
Martin Havlat
James Sheppard
2nd
Cap Space

To Minnesota:
Charlie Coyle
Devin Setoguchi
Dany Heatley
1st
3rd
Less cap space
we definitely need a third line veteran presence. those bottom two lines have almost nothing outside of handzus.

Was about to post the same thing
Hey folks. Just wanted to share a video I put together. First attempt at anything like this, so take it for what it is -- amateur work.

Don't know if any caught the LA / Anaheim beat-down theme.

SJ Sharks.. BEST IN THE WEST!
sharks don't pick up patrick white, get an additional second round pick next year

so in essence, we receive almost nothing in that erhoff deal. doesn't really bother me though, i hated erhoff. all he did was shoot slapshots well wide of the net and turn the puck over at the point in the worst way possible.

What do you mean? We get a 2nd round pick, don't we? That's something. Something better than Patrick White, too, probably. The guy wasn't doing anything. Now we have a high pick to get someone in here who could actually do something in the NHL -- like actually make it into an NHL game to begin with.

A second round pick is hardly nothing.

See that's what I was saying. That could be someone who winds up replacing Charlie Coyle. A 2nd rounder can often times equate to a 1st-round talent who slightly slid. I think it's pretty significant, actually.
i said almost nothing

a second round pick isn't that much considering what we gave up. whether i like erhoff or not, he's still a top 4 dman.
OTC is spot on, you can find good value in the second round. Or maybe that pick is traded during the season for a good winger.

That's something too that could be HUGE for us. If Sheppard doesn't do anything, we could still deal that away.

Or we could hang on to this pick and it would negate the pick we lost in our trade for Sheppard. Either way, we're better off with the 2nd than keeping White. Erhoff's rights were dealt for 4th round picks this year. I think in the end, we wouldn't have been much better off keeping him and having no cap space at the time.

I for one am extremely excited with the team we're going into this season with. Not only do we have a tremendously talented squad in all facets now, we have a lot of high-rising youngsters that should provide adequate depth in case of any injures. We should be very good even if we have injuries, but if we stay healthy, we should straight up DOMINATE.

Here's an overview of the comings and goings this off-season:

Gains
Martin Havlat
Brent Burns
Michael Handzus
Colin White
James Sheppard
Jim Vandermeer
Andrew Murray
2nd Round Pick
2nd Round Pick

Losses
Dany Heatley
Devin Setoguchi
Charlie Coyle
1st Round Pick
3rd Round Pick
Sharks training camp starts Saturday: http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=587098
Sharks get an NBC game this year!

That is just one of our 9 appearances national TV! http://sharks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=587137

3 on NHL Network
5 on VERSUS
1 on NBC

The only downside... ALL of them are away games except for the last one against LA.. If I may say, that is complete and total BS.
