Sharks Trade in the Works?

3 Sharks regulars who skated in the warmup earlier are scratches in tonights game vs. Dallas: Marco Sturm, Wayne Primeau, and Brad Stuart. Certainly looks like something is in the works…

Seems like something is brewing

    It’s done brewing :

    Sportsnet has learned the San Jose Sharks have traded Brad Stuart, Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau to Boston for Joe Thornton.

    The Boston Bruins have traded Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks for Marco Sturm, Brad Stuart and Wayne Primeau. Details to follow…

    WTF Thorton to the sharks?

    Worst trade ever LOL …. Or at least pretty close… Thornton is having a career season and Sturm isnt doing much…

    Sad for Boston…

    Wow! thats a HUGE. I wonder how it will affect both teams.

    I also wonder how it will it affect them in fantasy leagues. haha

    Stupid Bruins…

    You’d be surprised. Thornton has been the elephant in the living room since being named captain. He’s never provided enough leadership and nobody has dared ask him to give up the “C”. Boston has plenty of guys who can score but Joe only has eyes for Murray and sometimes Samsonov.

    This could be just the drastic change Boston has been looking for. Talent wise, I don’t think Boston got an even deal, though.

    I think they should have just fired Sullivan instead of trading their captain.

    I would be looking for a building to jump off of if I was a Bruins fan. Thorton is a good pick up, I just don’t see San Jose doing much this year, even with Thorton on the team.

    you can’t replace joe thornton. he’s gotta be one of the best all round players in the world. look at what he did for canada with nash. too bad for boston, i hope they really know what they’re doing cause now they’re really gonna suck ass! and to think i was gonna buy myself a boston jersey for christmas. i guess a sharks jersey will do. but this trade is useless for boston, what are they trying to accomplish cause stuart’s the only guy to be proud of in that trade. san jose has gotta be laughing after ripping of the bruins. he’s gonna do explosive things. i don’t pay attention at all to the sharks, but is cheechoo still there? is he hurt? those two will by an affective line doesn’t matter who else is with them.

    Question: What is SanJose going to do with to centres that make a combine total of over 10M (i.e. about 1/3 of the cap).

  12. Hockey_Fan_99 says:

    ya know centers can move to wing eh?

  13. Adam_0486 says:

    well i figured that much, So im assuming your going to say Marleau moves to the wing. But why then take an allstar caliber player who makes 4M/year and move him out of his natural position. Frankly the only way this deal looks good for San Jose is if they turn around and trades Marleau for a package similar to the Thornton package they gave up i.e. #1 Dman + #1 Forward + depth centre. So at least they can get back some depth but i doubt that will happen.

    Put McAuly on the wing with marleau on the 2nd line with ekman/Dimitrakos and on the first line have Thornton – CheeCho – Dimitrakos/Ekman
