San Jose Sharks: Breaking Down the Projected Starting Lines in 2011-12

It is no secret that the San Jose Sharks have been active this offseason. The black and teal traded wingers Devin Setoguchi and Dany Heatley in exchange for All-Stars Brent Burns and Martin Havlat in two separate deals with the Minnesota Wild.

Why attempt to fix something that is not considered broken?

Ask Sharks GM Doug Wilson, who seems determined to put together the exact pieces for yet another Stanley Cup run next season.

San Jose has appeared in back-to-back Western Conference Finals, and still that does not seem enough for a team oozing with talent.

Given the trades this offseason, expect the Sharks to be back in 2011-12 ready to make another run through the Western Conference.

However, the starting lines do not seem as set as the confidence this team has in their ability to make another run at the Stanley Cup.

Here are the Sharks' projected starting lines next season:


Marleau - Thornton - Pavelski

Clowe - Couture - Havlat

McGinn - Handzus - Mitchell

Desjardins - Wellwood - Ferriero


Boyle - Murray

Vlasic - Burns

Vandermeer - Demers
