3 Major Changes This Abysmal Sharks Team Needs Right Now

The San Jose Sharks are setting records for how bad they are to start this season and it doesn't look like it's going to get any brighter this season. That being said, the 0-9-1 team has to have something done to it with just six five-on-five goals scored through 10 games and a -35 goal differential already. These are three major changes that need to happen sooner or later to help get this organization going in the right direction.

Sell Any Players With Value

With a team like the Sharks have, their players are going to lose value pretty quickly, especially with just 10 goals scored in 10 games. We all knew they were going to be sellers and had some players of value at the start of the season, but the longer this drags out, the smaller the returns for those players will be. I am concerned most about Anthony Duclair, Mike Hoffman, Kevin Labanc, and Alexander Barabanov. They are all UFAs at the end of the season and could be rentals for a contender. They have a combined one goal and two assists.

Call Up Young Talent

While it might not be the best idea to call up their young and talented players of the future just to lose, there are some players who are a little older and should get a chance in the NHL. If this team isn't doing it, give these younger players a chance for a number of games each. It's not like they are going to pull the Sharks out of dead last in the NHL. I'm looking at Henry Thrun in particular.

Notify Teams They're Open to Take Bad Contracts

While taking on teams' bad contracts is something typically done in the offseason or at the trade deadline, the Sharks are fully capable of doing it already and for any position. Nothing is working for them and a couple of unwanted players might actually help get the team some goals and a few wins. The Sharks are going to have to find a way to get over the cap floor in the coming seasons and getting picks now will help speed up the rebuild.
