Locked On Sharks

Blackwood a Good Gamble?



The San Jose Sharks acquire MacKenzie Blackwood from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a 6th-round pick. I start by examining Blackwood’s numbers, why the analytics say something could be there for the Sharks in their quest to find a goalie, and why a trade like this makes sense for San Jose. Next, I recap Mike Grier’s media availability, including his thoughts on an Erik Karlsson trade and why the San Jose Sharks aren’t going to give him away, if Grier showed his hand for No. 4, and what to expect from San Jose in free agency (12:00). Finally, a clip from one of the top draft prospects, Will Smith’s, media availability (21:00).
