With plenty of questions surrounding the roster. Which players will need to prove themselves in order for the San Jose Sharks to have success this season?

The San Jose Sharks are carrying a very talented roster heading into the 2019 – 2020 campaign. However things are going to have to break just right if Team Teal wants to get another shot at the Western Conference Finals.

After taking substantial losses via free agency with the departures of Joe Pavelski, Joonas Donskoi, and Gus Nyquist. The Sharks are hoping that they can replace that level of production internally by giving more opportunities to their younger skaters and overall good health.

This is a huge risk by the Sharks front office but considering how the Team needed to allocate their cap space to retain certain players it’s really all they could do without risking the foundation that the core of this roster has built.

Now with the fate of the season hanging in the balance the San Jose Sharks will be leaning heavily on these specific players if they have any hope of remaining Stanley Cup relevant.
