So what do the San Jose Sharks have in Nick Bonino, Andrew Cogliano, James Reimer, and Lane Pederson?
As I wrote yesterday, this isn’t Bonino, Cogliano, and Reimer circa 2016, when Bonino and Cogliano were elite third-line forwards and Reimer was a top 1A goalie.
But they’ve still got a lot of game. Question is, how much?
Is Bonino, 33, still a legitimate third-line center for a playoff-hungry San Jose Sharks? How much has Cogliano, 34, slipped? Where is Reimer, 33, after being supplanted by Petr Mrazek and Alex Nedeljkovic in Carolina last season?
And do the San Jose Sharks have a sleeper with 23-year-old center Lane Pederson?
I checked up with four NHL scouts to answer these questions.
