Gray Frame Corner

Before the NHL trade deadline, a lowly Western Conference team is in the fire sale phase. 

The San Jose Sharks may be understated as deadline sellers, according to David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period 

According to Pagnotta, San Jose general manager Mike Grier has the phone lines open and is ready to conduct a fire sale by March 8. 

Some teams have called the Sharks about Logan Couture and Tomas Hertl, but their contracts and injury status this season make a deal improbable. 

Mario Ferraro, Anthony Duclair, Mikael Granlund, Mike Hoffman, Alexander Barabanov, Luke Kunin, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Kaapo Kahkonen, Kevin Labanc, and Jan Rutta should lead San Jose's second- and third-tier movement. 

Other than a couple, most of these players may not command a high return individually but could benefit the Sharks overall. 

San Jose's prospect and draft pick pool might grow in the next 20 days if it retains at least one outgoing player's pay. 

Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reported that Sharks head coach David Quinn wants to add size to the roster.  

There may be deadline alternatives for the company to pursue Quinn's goal, depending on how aggressively.
