The San Jose Sharks have just signed former Detroit Red Wings winger Filip Zadina. I discuss why this is the perfect low-risk, high-reward signing for Mike Grier and look at Filip Zadina’s stats and analytics. Next, I examine why Zadina didn’t pan out in Detroit and why playing with Tomas Hertl and/or Logan Couture could give him the high-quality centers that he has yet to play with (10:00). Finally, I project Zadina’s role with the San Jose Sharks and how he can add some more depth on the power play. Plus, why he won’t be traded at the Trade Deadline (19:00).
By the way, I’ve been on the Zadina-to-Sharks train for a while!
