With the 2018-19 San Jose Sharks season ending in the Western Conference Final at the hands of the St. Louis Blues, the team's future has begun. This offseason, in particular, the future is coming fast, with substantial change expected in the next few weeks. After an 'all-in' season which came up short, the Sharks will not be able to sustain the roster as is. Doug Wilson (THW Archives) Changes in Sharks Territory happen under the direction of general manager Doug Wilson, and the franchise's future will depend on choices made during the next several weeks.

The National Hockey League has a salary cap, which roughly translates to the total amount of money a team can pay their full team of players. In practice, there are plenty of areas where the salary cap is disconnected from player value, enabling a team to stay under the salary cap while assembling a roster whose talent value is well above the cap.
