Randy Hahn, TV play by play man for the San Jose Sharks, answers some fan mail…
Randy, I have the Sharks Stanley Cup recipe. First they need to trade Joe Thornton to St. Louis for David Backes. Next they need to sign Owen Nolan. Then they have to play Nick Petrecki all season. Logan Couture should move to the first line. Then I would trade Walin, Huskins & Mitchell for Sheldon Souray or Marc Staal. And have Derek Joslin fill the extra spot on defense. This should keep the Sharks under the cap as well.
You certainly have some drastic ideas to shake up the Sharks, Zubair. The problem is they hardly need the drastic kind of changes that you suggest. After all, they won the Western Conference in the regular season and got to the final four in the playoffs. I like Backes, but for Joe Thornton? Come on! if Doug Wilson made a trade like that he’d be booed by Sharks fans worse than Pronger and Fleury combined! My take on the team is that they need more consistent play from their 3rd and 4th lines, especially in the playoffs, and they need to find a puck moving defenseman from either inside the organization or elsewhere. And obviously the goaltending has to come through….
