The first day of free agency for the San Jose Sharks ended with a bang, but not the bang that some were expecting.

Instead of trading Erik Karlsson away, the Sharks traded for Anthony Duclair, sending out Steven Lorentz and a 2025 fifth-rounder to the Florida Panthers.

GM Mike Grier took to Zoom after the trade, talking about why Duclair fits, what’s going on with a Karlsson trade, why he targeted MacKenzie Blackwood in goal, and signing Kyle Burroughs, Givani Smith, and Fabian Zetterlund. He also shared why the San Jose Sharks didn’t qualify Noah Gregor, and if he’s looking to deal Logan Couture or Tomas Hertl.
