Locked On Sharks

Who’s 1st Shark To Get Big Contract From Grier?



Mike Grier has been very hesitant to give out a big contract since arriving in San Jose. Who could be the first player to get a large contract for the San Jose Sharks? I start by looking at all the players who are on expiring contracts this season and why most don’t make sense to earn a big deal except two. How could Alexander Barabanov capitalize on another great season to earn a deal with the San Jose Sharks? Could Anthony Duclair be in line for a pay raise with a 25-30 goal season? If not them, what if Grier wants to be aggressive in the off-season? Which players could be available in free agency? I look at Bay Area native Auston Matthews, super Swede William Nylander, and the rest of the potential 2024 free agency class (13:00). Finally, which of the Shark prospects could earn long-term deals in the future, and why it’s better to pay players like William Eklund and Will Smith sooner rather than later (20:00)?
