BARABANOV FOR SUOMELA
The San Jose Sharks acquired winger Alexander Barabanov from the Toronto Maple Leafs for forward Antti Suomela.
What does it give the San Jose Sharks
This is a trade of depth forwards at the NHL level. For San Jose, Barabanov may get a chance to showcase his ability down the stretch. He is worth a gamble.
What does it give the Toronto Maple Leafs
Suomela is merely a depth forward for the Maple Leafs. He is not expected to see a lot of ice time with the big club down the stretch.
Barabanov may have some dark horse appeal in deep fantasy leagues, while Suomela is not a fantasy prospect at all.
