2020 NHL Free Agency: Every Sharks trade, signing, transaction, rumor

It’s a Jumbo Joe watch, really.

The San Jose Sharks head into 2020 free agency not all too differently that in 2019; last year, they were hoping young players would step up, this year they’re banking on the veteran players bouncing back. So far a change in net and a recycling of forwards leaves fans with one question: is this roster really that much better?

Still, the off-season is far from over. Here’s ever move Doug Wilson and company make during free agency:
