Send Jones to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Hogberg.
In this situation, the Sharks would send Martin Jones to the Senators and acquire Marcus Hogberg. Making a move like this would, in no circumstance, be cheap. Ottawa would be asked to take on salary and give up a promising young goalie.
With that being said, it is possible because the Sens went out and signed Matt Murray to a four-year deal. He is an established number one option due to his contract’s nature and the fact that he previously led the Penguins to two Stanley Cups.
Hogberg and Murray are also roughly the same age, which would further argue that they could be open to this deal.
That then begs the question, what would the Sharks need to do to sweeten the deal?
This is where things would get less appealing. San Jose would need to send even more picks to Ottawa. In my mind, it would be a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick.
However, it would not be out of the realm of possibilities that the regular trade partner would need even more draft stock, including a pick in the upcoming draft.
As much as it would be nice to move Jones and to bring in a younger goalie, the Sharks would probably not be willing to give up the draft capital that the Senators would want.
