Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks

The NHL’s March 5 trade deadline is just 11 days after the Olympic roster freeze ends on Feb. 23.

Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks, who are a virtual lock to make it to the postseason, could still make a run at the Pacific Division title with a little luck, and will be getting some key players back for the stretch run.

In a conversation just before the Olympic break when asked about the approaching deadline, general manager Doug Wilson pointed to the numerous Sharks that are ready to return from injury, including Logan Couture and Raffi Torres, who has yet to make his season debut. Adam Burish played his first two games of the season just before the break, so he’ll still be finding his legs when the season resumes on Feb. 27 in Philadelphia, too.

Sharks mailbag: Return of Ray Whitney?

The rumors are already out there that Whitney could be in play, and the 41-year-old would be the dictionary definition of a rental player. A quick check of the stats says that Whitney has six goals and 14 assists for 20 points in 43 games with the Dallas Stars this season, but lately he hasn’t played among the top six. He’s in the second and final year of a two-year, $9 million deal.

More Havlat Trade News

HAVLAT’S FUTURE
It’s going to be intriguing to see how things roll out in San Jose concerning the future of 32-year-old winger Martin Havlat.

GM Doug Wilson came out in the local newspaper this week and talked about Havlat having to earn his ice time on a team loaded with forwards.

Is a Havlat for Michalek trade in the works?

Ottawa Senators searching for 6th forward

One quarter of the way through the schedule, the Senators are still trying to find a bona-fide Top 6 forward.

The search has been internal so far, but GM Bryan Murray is also turning over all sorts of stones outside the organization.

Apparently, he’s even shown interest in a flash from the past.

Sharks and Blues news

The Sharks will be buying out lukewarm winger Martin Havlat after this season. They likely would have done so this summer, but he had hip surgery and you can’t buy out injured players. Havlat was a healthy scratch Friday against the Oilers.

3 Way deal in the works for Clowe?

 

Flyers in the mix of teams chasing San Jose forward Ryane Clowe

RYANE CLOWE and the San Jose Sharks have the Flyers waiting with bated breath.

Clowe, the forward the Flyers have spent the better part of the past 2 days chasing, was scratched from Monday night’s lineup by the Sharks in order to “protect the asset” in the event of a trade. An injury would have derailed the process.

As of press time for this edition, Clowe had not been traded. Check Philly.com/Sports for the latest Flyers information.

Clowe trade could come soon

The Sharks appear to be moving closer towards trading left wing Ryane Clowe.

A source has informed CSNCalifornia.com that the Sharks have approached Clowe’s agent about the possibility of waiving his no-trade clause, and a deal could happen as soon as Sunday.

Rumblings: B’s, Habs, Canucks like Clowe

Here’s something important to keep in mind as the Ryane Clowe situation plays itself out before next Wednesday’s trade deadline.

Clowe has a full no-trade clause. The San Jose Sharks have to run this thing by him in order to get a deal done.

Which means if, for whatever reason, Clowe doesn’t believe a certain team is a good fit, he can nix it. Although, in the same vein, Sharks GM Doug Wilson did well by Douglas Murray in the move to Pittsburgh, and the sense is that Wilson and Clowe have a good line of communication on what’s transpiring.
