Sharks Into Thrashers? Maybe?

One wonders just what Doug Wilson is going to do to his roster after this, the most gigantic and embarrassing post-season failure in a history rife with gigantic and embarrassing post-season failures. Surely he'll try to trade some of his players.

I'm not saying he'd be dumb enough to trade Joe Thornton, even though he's been appalling all throughout this series, and I doubt Patrick Marleau (who seems to be, as many have noticed, playing hurt) will go, but surely some of the Sharks roster is going to be sold off for players that might, hopefully, play with some hunger and enthusiasm in the post-season.

What does this mean for the Thrashers? Exelby for Milan Michalek, HEEEENNNNGH? Jonathan Cheechoo will certainly go.

UPDATE: Just a thought. There's always been speculation that during Hossagate Doug Wilson offered to send Jonathan Cheechoo to Atlanta, in return for that Hossa fella, and possibly Johan Hedberg as well. How different would things be for the Sharks and for the Thrashers if Waddell had pulled the trigger? Really, I'm asking; I don't know.

I think we should get Cheechoo, who hasn't been bad in this playoffs despite the poor run. He's should energy and hard work. Also, I think we could do to him what we did to Slava, give him a rebirth. I mean if It were Pevs, Kovy, and Cheechoo, that'd be a fast crazy line and very creative line.

Joe Thornton: Hockey's A-Rod (or Steve Nash)

Joe Thornton: Hockey's "Mr. November"; but unlike Derek Jeter, doesn't produce in the postseason.

Yeah, I think Cheechoo is actually pretty good in the playoffs. I think he could rejuvenate his career under John Anderson as well.
