4 Sharks Vegas Fans Should Know

The San Jose Sharks are up next on our list of players that fans of the Vegas Golden Knights should know. Arguably there is no team with a more complicated expansion draft landscape to navigate than the Sharks.

Blame it all on Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. Both entered the NHL in 1997, both will be free agents, and both may or may not be exposed in next month’s expansion draft.

Both Sharks officially become free agents on July 1. They’re unlikely to sign deals before then, meaning they will not be protected and technically will be up for relocation to Nevada.

That said, I’m of the opinion that Vegas fans needn’t worry about whether or not one of these guys will become a Golden Knight. Forget for a second whether or not that’s an addition you’d like to see Vegas make. Can it happen? Sure. Will it happen? I really doubt it. Smart money says they stay in San Jose. Even if it’s not that, I’m skeptical that guys who have been to the playoffs in all but two of their NHL seasons will want to start over with an expansion franchise.

So we’re not going to talk about them. Focus on the other possibilities, Golden Knights faithful. Here are four Sharks Vegas fans should know.
