Default San Jose angle on the Boyle trade

Some really interesting reading here. I'm now officially thrilled with this trade because Wishart sounds so good and another No.1 in a deep draft does too.

Can't Approve of Those Defensive Moves

Quote:
Wishart was expected to compete for a spot in training camp.

I’ve always compared the kid to Dion Phaneuf, without the Cro-Magnon brow and devastating physicality. The two seasons after he was drafted, playing for the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels, Phaneuf put up 43 points in 62 games and 56 points in 55 games. Wishart has put up 49 points in 62 games and 67 points in 72 games his last two seasons, playing for the Prince George Cougars and Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL.

I have to admit, I won’t miss trying to pronounce his name. I’ve called him everything from Wish-heart to Wish-art to Wiz-heart to Wiss-heart, never settling on a definitive pronunciation. Whatever the case may be, Shark fans are now hoping he’s never called a Norris trophy candidate.

I liked Carle’s contract extension when it was announced and I still like it. In fact, a year or two from now it’s probably going to be considered a massive steal.
Quote:
In the short term, on paper, the Sharks probably come out better than they were a week ago, simply because Boyle is guaranteed to score 50+ points while Carle wasn't. However, in the long term when you look at Blake, Boyle and Lukowich costing over $13 million this season compared to Carle, Rivet and Wishart costing a shade under $8 million, the loss of another first-round pick and the diminishment of young talent, the Sharks are huge losers.

I agree. Although Boyle is most definitely the better player now, 3 or 4 years from now his deal is going to be tough. I like it right now.

Calling Wishart a future Norris candidate might be a bit of a stretch. He is a guy who I believe is going to be better than he was originally projected to be when he was drafted and is fully capable of becoming a top-pair defenseman.

Having 2 first rounders next season, plus Carle and Wishart, and a 4th, is more than worth Boyle and Lukowich 2 or 3 years from now.

I'll be a big fan of whoever the Sharks are playing against next season.

Agreed.

EDIT: 'issue' resolved

Insensitive to whom, teams that lose trades badly? Sorry, my bad. I get confused on a site that allows me to cuss.
