Tomas Hertl heard. But he wishes he hadn’t.

Last week, Pierre LeBrun reported that GM Mike Grier was “willing to listen” on every San Jose Sharks player not named Hertl. Now some people, they’d be happy if they heard that they were the only one that the boss wanted to keep around.

“I don’t really, honestly, want to think about it. We’re like family here. We’re all together,” Hertl told San Jose Hockey Now. “[You] just get so close with all the guys. We’re like friends, family altogether.”

Take, for example, Halloween night, when the Hertls got together with the Simeks, Karlssons, Bennings, and Megnas for trick-or-treating.

But Hertl knows that the San Jose Sharks are 3-8-1. He knows that the only people who can change Grier’s direction are in the Sharks’ locker room. He knows that he’s only scored one goal this season. He knows more is expected of him after signing an eight-year, $65.1 million dollar extension last year.
