Rumor: San Jose Sharks believed to have offered the #9 pick in a Talbot deal
TSN reported that the San Jose Sharks are the rumored team that may have offered their first round pick for Cam Talbot.
Re: Talbot offers – Told Florida’s package does not include their 1st round pick (No. 11). The 1st on table is believed to be from SJ. #TSN

As the day has progressed more and more reports indicate a deal will likely not take place until the draft tonight.
[su_quote cite=”WFAN” url=”http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/06/26/cam-talbot-rangers-nhl-draft/?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed”]Talbot’s agent, George Bazos, told WFAN.com via e-mail: “Looks like it is going down to the wire. There’s not a lot that I know or can add.”[/su_quote]
Let’s not be naive here either. If it is the Sharks that offered the #9 overall pick for Talbot, they didn’t do it straight up. If so, Sather would be a fool for not accepting. What SJ likely did was offer that #9 pick for Talbot and likely Keith Yandle.
So sit tight folks, this drama is still yet to unfold.
