The Vegas Golden Knights have cut the grass from under the New York Rangers at the recent trade deadline.

How the Sharks' Trade of Hertl to Vegas Upset the New York Rangers



Everyone thought the San Jose Sharks would be looking to offload players at this year's trade deadline, and that's exactly what happened.

By trading Tomas Hertl to their rivals, the Vegas Golden Knights, the Sharks used their last opportunity to hold onto part of a player's salary in a trade. This move made it impossible for them to do the same for Alexander Barbanov in a potential deal with the New York Rangers. Sheng Peng shared his thoughts on this.


The Tomas Hertl trade happened. In a shocker, the Sharks sent their franchise icon to the hated Vegas Golden Knights. As part of the deal, San Jose used their last salary retention slot on Hertl, a salary retention slot that was meant for Barabanov.


The decision to trade Hertl was unexpected and even surprised experts like Bob McKenzie. It's obvious that the Sharks are trying to rebuild and hope to secure a top draft pick by selling off their players this year.



Do you think Macklin Celebrini will be drafted by the Sharks?
