The San Jose Sharks face some big questions heading into the offseason, having lost the last two consecutive Western Conference Finals. Making a third consecutive appearance is a feat only accomplished four times in league history, and the Sharks need to take the next step forward in order to make their first Stanley Cup Final.

With a host of free agents to consider, the Sharks must improve their depth as well as add the defender that can make the difference in their quest for the Stanley Cup.

The crop of UFA defenseman isn’t very deep, and the Sharks could get swept up in a bidding war for the services of a defender like Eric Brewer. Alternately, the Sharks could trade for the impact defender they need but mortgage some of the team’s youth and future in doing so.

One area where the available free agents could find their place in San Jose is on the Sharks' depth pairings, where Huskins and Wallin’s possible departures could leave a void.

This is the third part of the San Jose offseason primer, you can find part 1 here and part 2 here, where we review all FA defenseman as well as Shark free agents.

Begin the slideshow to take a look at some bold trades that could get the Sharks where they want to go.
