Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi have been traded to the San Jose Sharks from the Colorado Avalanche in an effort to end the Sharks’ slide out of the playoffs which is currently in full effect. In exchange, the Sharks sent Jamie McGinn, Mike Connolly and prospect Michael Sgarbossa currently with the Sudbury Wolves.
Winnik and Galiardi are the type of guys the Sharks are going to be counting on to do the dirty work for them in hopes that you tighten the screws and make a run. This team only has so many runs left in it and they need to start making them count. San Jose has some pretty good depth and they are in a good spot going forward right now, in my opinion. Cam Charron agrees…
Daniel Winnik leads the Colorado Avalanche in Corsi against good competition and 42% Ozone start%. This is a very good move for San Jose.

Colorado didn’t get shortchanged, it should be noted, as they picked up a couple decent pieces in Jamie McGinn who is a good hardworking winner for your bottom six up front. In Connolly and Sgarbossa they get a couple prospects who are very feisty with offensive upside. We’re getting a sense of the type of team Colorado is trying to build and we’ll see how things work out from here on out.
Who’s your trade winner?
