Timo Timo has struck midnight in San Jose, but the Trade Deadline isn’t over until tomorrow at 12 PM PT.

Here are 10 more San Jose Sharks players that I could see moved, from most likely to very unlikely.

Vladislav Namestnikov

He’s the newest San Jose Sharks player, who they got from Tampa for Mikey Eyssimont yesterday. Expectation is that they flip the pending UFA by tomorrow.

Before yesterday, Namestnikov has been traded three times in the last five years, each time for a fourth-round pick if you’re wondering roughly what he’s worth.

Nick Bonino

Another pending UFA, the two-time Stanley Cup winner is respected in the room and is the master of little things, faceoffs, blocking shots, having a strong stick defensively.

Recently, he’s also been sneaky productive offensively, 10 goals in his last 38 games.

James Reimer

A pending UFA, he’s beloved in the locker room and is Mr. Consistent between the pipes.

Not having his best season, but he’s the perfect back-up for a contending team, he’s more than capable of taking on the load for a few games in a row if your No. 1 is hurt.

Alexander Barabanov

Productive and a good contract, one more year after this one at $2.5 million AAV.

Teams don’t usually trade a lot for more offensively-leaning, one-dimensional forwards though, but he’s been good this year.

Noah Gregor

There are conflicting reports whether Noah has asked for a trade or not.

I’m not sure if a contender will want him because he’s not a proven 200-foot player, but someone might take a flyer on him because they love his speed.

Gregor Denies He Made Trade Request

Steven Lorentz

Matt Benning

Nico Sturm

They’re all in the same bucket as guys who I think exemplify high-compete Mike Grier hockey, and they’re all signed to multi-year contracts. I think you have to overpay to get them, but each would be attractive to a playoff team, they’re the highest compliment I can give, they’re guys you win with.

Kevin Labanc

Labanc is sort of the opposite of Barabanov. Productive, one-dimensional, but way too expensive at $4.725 million AAV next year. He doesn’t have a lot of value with that contract, I think.

Jonah Gadjovich

Sort of my sleeper guy. He’s hurt now, though he’s back practicing.

He’s just 24 and has a physical component that teams love. There also could be a little more offense, Jonah’s game has improved a lot this year, and he was a former high pick.

I know the Canucks didn’t want to waive him last year, they were worried he would get scooped up, which is what the San Jose Sharks did.
