SAN JOSE (Bleacher Report) — It is time for the built-to-win-now San Jose Sharks team to start thinking about the future. That future is Logan Couture.
Couture is San Jose’s youngest impact player, and as its only All Star last season, arguably the best. He will still be a restricted free agent when his contract is up in 2014, making him a little easier to afford.
Any successful team must have a true No. 1 centre. Couture should be San Jose’s for the rest of the decade. That makes him the cornerstone of the team’s foundation.
