If Sharks Trade Ferraro, What’s a Reasonable Return?



Should the San Jose Sharks trade Mario Ferraro? And if they do, what’s a reasonable return?

That’s what we’re discussing in this episode of the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast.

But before we get to that, Keegan and Sheng talk about this week in San Jose Sharks hockey and strong performers like William Eklund, Tomas Hertl, and Mikael Granlund. (2:08)

Then we talk about Logan Couture’s honesty about his dark mental state while dealing with his injury, and the work that Sheng is doing to try to get to the bottom of what the injury is. (9:35)

Keegan and Sheng debate the Jack Studnicka trade (14:05) and healthy scratching Anthony Duclair. (33:00)

Finally, we talk about the San Jose Sharks prospects who are going to the World Junior Championships. (37:05)

What did FloHockey’s Chris Peters say about Quentin Musty’s exclusion from Team USA? (43:45)

So to trade Ferraro or not to trade Ferraro?

Sheng talks about how much he loves Ferraro, and what it would take, in his mind, to trade him. (45:40)

Sheng shares what scouts are telling him about Ferraro’s ceiling and trade value. Also, what does Jason Demers think? (51:00)

Ferraro is not like most of the high-profile defensemen like Filip Hronek or Jakob Chychrun who have been dealt for premium assets recently. (57:00)

There is, however, a recent comp for a Ferraro trade that yielded a team a first-round pick in return. (1:03:45)

Keegan offered some defensemen trades, featuring stay-at-home blueliners, from the past decade, and asked if any of those trade archetypes were appealing. (1:07:30)
