The San Jose Sharks have a lot to offer before the Mar. 8 Trade Deadline.

Need centers? Mikael Granlund and Nico Sturm can help out.

How about a speedy scoring winger? A resurgent Anthony Duclair leads the Sharks with four goals, and per SPORTLOGiQ, in Quality Chances since they’ve come back from the All-Star break.

Mario Ferraro and Jan Rutta are experienced and compete hard.

The Sharks may also have a spare goaltender: Kaapo Kahkonen, according to SPORTLOGiQ, is top-five in the NHL in Inner Slot Save %.

The last-place San Jose Sharks have players that can help you win a Stanley Cup.
