Are the Sharks already calling it for the 2022-23 NHL season?
According to Pierre LeBrun of TSN, just 10 games into the season, the 3-7-0 Sharks have put up a “For Sale” sign on anybody not named Tomas Hertl.
"In talking with other teams around the league,” LeBrun said Thursday on TSN’s "Insider Trading," "the Sharks have let it be known that they’re willing to listen on pretty much every player on their roster other than perhaps Tomas Hertl, who just signed an eight-year extension last year."
LeBrun added, “[The] Sharks’ payroll and roster right now has a bunch of guys, led by the likes of Erik Karlsson, with full no-move clauses. It’s going to be difficult for Mike Grier to enact the kind of change that he wants, but that’s his intention over the next couple years.”
