Sharks Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Alexander Barabanov

The San Jose Sharks are in a full-on rebuild, and Alexander Barabanov's name is starting to pick up some steam in the rumor. Let's discuss two teams who could consider bringing in the skilled winger because of this. 

Winnipeg Jets: The Winnipeg Jets are looking to be a bigger threat in the league this season. They have some cap space to work with, too, so they could look at a player like Barabanov. He would be a nice addition to their second line or third line and offer them another playmaker for their power play if acquired. 

Seattle Kraken: The Seattle Kraken are also in a position where they would benefit from adding another forward to their group. They are looking to build off of their successful 2022-23 campaign, and bringing in an underrated forward like Barabanov could be a great way to do that. He would work well on their second line and likely see plenty of time on their power play.
