Sharks get Galiardi, Winnik from Avs for McGinn

By Brian Stubits

The San Jose Sharks picked up some solid depth forwards from the Colorado Avalanche with just about an hour left in Monday's trading window, acquiring Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi from the Avs.

In return, the Sharks send Jamie McGinn, Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa to Colorado according to Adrian Dater of the Denver Post.

You have to like both the additions from San Jose's perspective. Winnik and Galiardi both give them some grit and some scoring. Galiardi in particular could be the steal in this move. But I am a bit surprised to see the Sharks giving up McGinn in the process. He has been having a good season with the Sharks with 12 goals already. In Colorado he sort of fits in with the addition from earlier this week in Steve Downie.

It's not the biggest deal we'll see all day but it's a nice little move for San Jose. And we can't finish this blog without using this terrible pun:

The Sharks are now in it to Winnik.
