Marc Bergevin must capitalize on Tomas Hertl

Published September 3, 2021 at 10:06

Tomas Hertl is not sure what his future holds as he may want to leave the San Jose Sharks environment, which is becoming toxic by Evander Kane's presence... He is no longer sure of his desires, then if we take the time to analyze this statement well, it's easy to grasp that he doesn't want to continue with the team that made him the 17th player chosen in the 2012 auction.

"I wonder if San Jose will want to offer me a new contract and if I will want to stay there. I don't want to think about it too much, so it doesn't affect me too negatively. I will start the season and we will see how things go!"

The 27-year-old center will complete the final year of a contract that pays him $5.625 million annually in the 2021-22 season. Since the beginning of his career, he has 323 points in 503 regular games and 42 points, including 24 goals, in 62 playoff games. Isn't this the type of player Marc Bergevin is looking for to fill the team's number two pivot position?

After the names of Jack Eichel and Christian Dvorak, can we now add Hertl among the rumors of center players who could potentially join the Sainte-Flanelle? Yvon Pedneault and a few others are starting to stick this one to the CH, but will Bergevin be attracted to the Czech for all that? After a big campaign in 2018-19, where he had 74 points (35 goals), he has slowed down a bit.

We're jabbering, but with one year left on his current deal and the fact that he already has his head far away from San Jose, isn't it time to capitalize? Offer a one and two choice to Doug Wilson? Let's go Marcccc!
