Ryan Merkley Wants Out, Who’s at Fault?



San Jose Sharks defensive prospect, Ryan Merkley, has officially asked for a trade. Let’s start by going back and reading Merkley’s draft profiles to see how they compare to Merkley’s game now. Then we analyze Merkley’s road to San Jose and the past three seasons with the Sharks and Barracuda to try and determine where the organizational failure was and how the organizational changes caused Merkley to fall through the cracks (10:00). Next, why the San Jose Sharks should target another prospect in a trade and some players that would make sense to try to acquire (21:00). Finally, how do the defensive prospects rank once Merkley is traded and why should the San Jose Sharks pick a defenseman with their second pick in the upcoming draft (27:00)?
