The San Jose Sharks are enduring another losing streak. It's reached double digits yet again, and we have to endure the onslaught of jokes about this organization coming from all angles, and rightfully so. Multiple double digit losing streaks in the same season is not good enough. Three more losses, and this will crack the top 10 longest all time, so the pain can just continue for Sharks fans around the world.
So, let's forget about the teams performance and focus on the upcoming trade deadline. With the organization looking to move everything that isn't nailed down, there's going to be a ton of moving pieces at this upcoming trade deadline. If you have an expiring deal, this team will be listening to offers on you. Heck, some of the fans were traded to the 49ers a few weeks ago for a conditional seventh rounder. That's a joke, but would you be surprised?
We approach the deadline slowly because we all know time moves at a snail's pace when you are suffering. We know some of the players we have learned to enjoy watching will not be here next year. With players going to be flying out the door at a rate of naughts with so many pending free agents and the team open for business, this squad is going to change a lot between now and the final game of the season.
One of the players that we are going to see the Sharks move on from in time will be Anthony Duclair. This is a player that makes just $3 million against the cap. He's had a great season under David Quinn and the San Jose Sharks coaching staff. This is the kind of player that is great for a depth role on a playoff contender. After making it to the Stanley Cup Finals with the Florida Panthers last season, he also has experience of a deep run. So where could he end up?
