Sharks Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Anthony Duclair

The San Jose Sharks are having a very rough start to the season, and this was entirely expected. This is because the Sharks are in a full-on rebuild, and they traded star defenseman Erik Karlsson this offseason. Due to this, they should be sellers of the deadline, and Anthony Duclair will likely be moved. Let’s discuss two potential landing spots for him now.

New York Islanders: If the Islanders are in the playoff race at the deadline this season, Duclair would make sense as a trade target for them. It is not a secret that they need help with their scoring, and he would provide them with just that if acquired.

Pittsburgh Penguins: The Penguins are also likely to be looking to improve their top nine before the deadline passes. When noting that Duclair provides offense while in that kind of role and works on the power play, he would be a decent addition to their group if acquired. 

We will now need to wait and see if either of these two teams ends up bringing the skilled forward before the trade deadline passes from here.
