Wallin talks back on between Sharks, Canes

February, 7, 2010

It appears there's a chance Niclas Wallin could be a San Jose Shark after all.

On Friday, Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford told the Raleigh News & Observer the Wallin trade was dead, but two sources close to the situation said the deal was revived late Saturday night.

Wallin has a no-trade clause, and it's believed he was seeking a contract extension to waive it. One source told ESPN.com on Sunday the deal could still fall apart again, but that the possibility of a trade to San Jose was again in the cards.

The Sharks are on the lookout for help on defense, especially with the injury to Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
