Sharks hoping to trade Havlat

The San Jose Sharks are looking to trade winger Martin Havlat and prefer to deal him, as opposed to buying him out this off-season.

Sharks GM Doug Wilson indicated last month that the team would not bring back Havlat next season.

If the Sharks are unable to trade him, they will buy out his contract.

Havlat, 33, has one-year left on his contract.

According to multiple sources, TFP has learned that the Sharks have had several trade discussions about Havlat with several clubs.

Wilson's goal is to trade Havlat, but will use one of the club's compliance buyouts on him if he's unable to.

Meanwhile, the Sharks are also engaged in trade discussions involving left wing Patrick Marleau and goalie Antti Niemi.

Marleau has a no-movement clause but appears willing to waive it for the right team.

Center Joe Thornton's name has also popped up in trade rumors, but TFP has learned, and reported, that he's very unlikely to waive his no-movement clause.
