McLaren on the move
The Sharks are quite likely going to deal defenceman Kyle McLaren very soon, as he's being held out of scrimmages in training camp at the moment.
McLaren has a $2.5-million cap hit and is an unrestricted free agent next summer. Los Angeles or Atlanta seem likely destinations if they've fallen out of the Mathieu Schneider sweepstakes.
San Jose needs to get back under the cap, but they'll be forfeiting some solid defensive depth by shuttling out McLaren. They'll have to look to their minor league system and someone like Derek Joslin in case of injury should this deal take place.
Vlasic - Boyle
Ehrhoff - Blake
Lukowich - Murray
Joslin - Semenov
