- In the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Blues and Sharks had a major deal on the table.
- Ex-CEO Brian Burke revealed all details Monday night on the Sportnet network.
- According to former Flames president of Operation, the Blues were ready to send defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and forward T.J. Oshie to the Sharks.
- In return, St Louis would have secured Tomas Hertl and the first round pick (9th overall) of the Sharks in 2015.
- The deal failed at the last minute,
- That 9th overall pick turned out to be striker Timo Meier.
- The Swiss had just collected 90 points (44 goals, 46 assists) in 61 games with the Halifax Mooseheads.
- The Sharks had an eye on him for a while.
- When they saw that Meier was still available, that’s when they aborted the trade with the Blues.
- Timo Meier and Tomas Hertl are both having a tremendous impact of the success of the San Jose Sharks these Playoffs.
