Not going to happen if Strome and some salary isnt' going back. If they offer Strome, Jones, Hajek and a prospect like Berard that is enough. Hertl is an upgrade to Strome because of his faceoffs but not by much. He's certainly not worth a top prospect in the top 35 of most rankings. San Jose is a team full of old fukkkks and bad contracts. They should jump for joy to get two young defenseman that they can play right now and then try to dump some of the old farts on their defense with some salary retained. That team will suck for another 5 years at least.

I'm not sure Hertl solves the problem to be honest. He is 28 in November and will be a UFA next summer...so you run into the same contracting issues as with Zibanejad and Strome, and Strome has already proved himself here.
