Sharks: Will it be Worth it?

I just watched the miserable Sharks lose their 10th consecutive game against the Stars. Fans have been debating over what to do since their…oh, 5th straight loss, but I don’t think any of us expected this. The Sharks traded 3 great players, Marco Sturm, Brad Stuart, and Wayne Primeau for a legendary one: Joe Thornton.

It’s a bold move–Joe Thornton is probably one of the biggest names in hockey right now. I know how high-profile of a player Joe Thornton is, but I personally have a hard time believing that he alone can replace three solid players–three names well-loved by Sharks fans. The Sharks are already lacking in veteran players, forcing them to play a lot of rookies, and this will leave a big hole that will probably filled with more. Only time will tell if this was a smart move or not…

On a side note, I got a chance to see the Cleveland Barons play last year during the absence of the NHL. The Barons are the feeder team for the Sharks, so it’ll be interesting to see who (if any) will move up to join the Sharks.
