The San Jose Sharks have gotten a little bit tougher and a bit more gritty with a deal with Colorado Avalanche, acquiring forwards Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi for Jamie McGinn and two prospects.  The Sharks have been a push over team in the last couple of weeks and the best way to rectify that is with a little bit of sandpaper.

The Sharks add a little bit more depth with Winnik and Galiardi, more of your 3rd and 4th line variety, but with some touch, which should take care of the lines with Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski, if they are not playing with Ryane Clowe.

For the Avalanche, they get a bit more scoring out of McGinn, who might be able to go top six for the club, not to mention adding a couple more young players to their prospect stables.  I don't think the Avalanche sacrificed much at all with McGinn coming back in return.  I wouldn't qualify this as a seller's move.

ImplicationsOnly one pool player in this deal and that is Galiardi, who wasn't a popular guy on the selection sheet. I would imagine that this deal wouldn't change that much and we all move on from here.
