The San Jose Sharks exited the postseason early again this year, this time losing to the Los Angeles Kings in seven games after taking a 3-0 series lead.
Coach Todd McLellan’s job is reportedly safe right now, but here are five players who shouldn't back in San Jose next season.
Davison was originally drafted by the Sharks in 1998 and spent the entire season in the AHL after being brought back to the organization. At age 34, he is unlikely to be back as organizational depth if a younger player can fill that void.
Sheppard has six points (two goals, four assists) in the playoff series against the Kings, and he would not be expensive to bring back. But it would be surprising to see the Sharks make much of an effort to re-sign him.
Hannan is slated to be an unrestricted free agent at age 35, and the Sharks should be ok with letting him explore his options.
Boyle is slated to become an unrestricted free agent, and he’ll turn 38 in July. He may be back with the Sharks, but only at a price far less than the more than six million dollars he made this past season.
Stalock had a solid season as Antti Niemi’s backup, with a 12-5-2 record, 1.87 goals against average and a .932 save percentage in 24 games played during the regular season. If he wants an opportunity to start and get a significant pay day, both of which may not come in San Jose, Stalock should find some suitors as a restricted free agent.
