Erik Karlsson can see the writing on the wall for the San Jose Sharks. “You trade a guy like Timo, I don’t think that shows that this is going to be a quick turnaround. He can see the writing on the wall, but he can’t get over the wall. 3 Trade] Deadline, to make everything work, it’s something that’s difficult to pull off,” San Jose Sharks GM Mike Grier said yesterday after the Meier trade. The other things that you can’t control, you can’t do much about.”Things could change this summer though, if Karlsson can continue his resurgent campaign to the end.
NEW YORK – It didn’t look it, but the San Jose Sharks were on the right track in the second period. Going into Madison Square Garden, the Sharks had been outshot 70-39 and outscored 12-2 in the middle frame. And tonight appeared to be no different: The Sharks were outshot 13-4 and outscored 2-1 by the Rangers in the second. You couple that with flashes of heroball – like Karlsson’s individual OT effort – and the Sharks might dig their way out of their 1-5-0 hole yet. “So I think today was a good, good step for us.5 months ago San Jose Hockey Now

Timo Meier…of the Vegas Golden Knights? To no surprise, several teams such as the New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes have been linked to the Swiss winger…but the Golden Knights? What would make this even more difficult for the Golden Knights to pull off is that they have very little when it comes to their prospect pipeline. Based on the reported ask for Meier, a Golden Knights package could consist of the Golden Knights 2023 first-round pick, unprotected, along with prospects Brendan Brisson and Lukas Cormier. Or NBA-style, maybe the San Jose Sharks GM takes a shot at his arch-rival’s decline and asks for a Golden Knights’ first-round pick in the distant future?1 month ago San Jose Hockey Now

Alexander Barabanov scored, but the Sharks were outlasted by Florida 4-1. 7 left: Gregor holds and holds in slot, shot gets blocked, but I like him showing patience and hopefully confidence offensively. Not a great San Jose Sharks change, but that’s a save that he should make, I think. Barabanov does a good job sticking with it, stick in passing lane. 6 left: As usual, Sturm always has that extra effort, dives for point shot off back board, good chance.1 month ago San Jose Hockey Now
