    "Today is a great day to be a fan of the San Jose Sharks," said club general manager Billy Johnson during a press conference held early this afternoon. The club held the press conference to announce they had just recieved league approval on a monster deal with the Colorado Avalanche. Leaving the Sharks are centres Andy McDonald, Tyler Arnason and prospects Konstantin Korneev and Adrian Foster as well as an assortment of picks and cash. In return the Sharks recieve arguably the games best player in Peter Forsberg as well as young blueliner Anton Volchenkov. Johnson had the following comments on the deal:

    "We are having a fantastic start to the year. The additions of both Forsberg and Volchenkov should only improve our clubs on ice performance. Although we add a significant amount of salary in this deal it was the opinion of our management team that a move like this was essential inorder to compete with teams like the Sens and Blues. We now have an excellent trio of centres in Forsberg, Yashin and Primeau as well as an improving blueline."

    Johnson was also quick to point out that this deal was not easy for the club to make. He said "giving up a guy like Foster was very difficult because he was my ever draft pick and I am his biggest fan. Also we really like Andy McDonald and feel he has the potential to evolve into a Chris Drury/Steve Sullivan type player. But inorder to complete this deal their inclusion was necessary. I'd just like to wish all the players leaving San Jose all the best in Colorado".

    Beware of the first round upsets, just ask the senators and the Sharks. Honestly, if the lightning, wings and rangers can have a good cup run, I can't see why the Canucks can't do the same thing. Although, the nucks may not have the same depth as the teams that I've just mentioned.

    So do you... Just remember that the Canes are still mathematically possible to make the playoffs. So don't count me out just yet. :P

    The regular season means nothing. Correct me if I am wrong Andrew but wasn't it the Sharks who beat you the last time it mattered??? I think it was game 6 of Stanley Cup Finals two seasons ago...

    I agree Billy, but what has senators done in the playoffs. At least caps went to the final couple of seasons ago.
