Was Saturday night the last we’ll see Ryane Clowe in a Sharks sweater? The Clowe trade rumors have been circulating for some time already, and now there could be real action imminent ahead of Wednesday’s noon PT trade deadline with CSN’s Kevin Kurz reporting that the Sharks’ bruising winger could be spending Easter packing his bags: A source has informed CSNCalifornia.com that the Sharks have approached Clowe’s agent about the possibility of waiving his no-trade clause, and a deal could happen as soon as Sunday. Kurz believes the Bruins, Rangers and Canadiens are the frontrunners in the Clowe sweepstakes (if you want to call them that). The Canucks have been another team reports have previously thrown in the mix. Why would Clowe waive his no-trade clause for any of those teams? Well, they all have far less tenuous playoff chances than the Sharks do. And also, with Clowe, 30, set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, a solid showing in the playoffs could dramatically rai...

Clowe’s Agent On The Trade Talks

from Louis-Andre Lariviere of TVA Sports (translated with a little editing by me), Kent Hughes, Clowe's agent  officer, told the TVA Sports as the Sharks try to exchange the attacker. Namely if the trade transaction can occur as early as Monday night, given the withdrawal of Clowe from tonight's game training, Hughes responded that it is a precaution. "A match...

Sharks rally, knock off Coyotes

The way the San Jose Sharks have been playing of late, even a third-period deficit is no reason to get down. Marc-Edouard Vlasic celebrated his 26th birthday by scoring the game-tying goal with 5 minutes left in the third period and Logan Couture got the only goal of the shootout to lead the Sharks to their fourth straight win, 3-2 over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night. &...

John Jaeckel: Mackenzie: Hawks Acquire Handzus

Follow me @jaeckel TSN's Bob MacKenzie is reporting the Hawks have acquired veteran center Michal Handzus from the Sharks for a 4th round pick. While some might be disappointed, I actually think this is a nice pickup for the stretch run. I've always been a fan of Zus. And even at his advanced age and glacial skating pace, he can be an effective penalty killing center...

Afternoon Line

"If you look at it, I figure I probably play my best hockey down the stretch and into the playoffs so that's probably what teams are looking for.  You look at it the other way, wow, this guy has no goals this year. It's kind of funny teams want him. But overall, I think you look at the body of work over the last four or five years and I like to think I've been pretty...
