07:33 AM ET 10.02 | From the trio's perspective, they don't like to entertain the notion. They say they don't look at the coming NHL season as any sort of last hurrah. But here's the reality: Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Dan Boyle -- the three most high-profile and highly-paid Sharks over the past five seasons -- all have contracts expiring at the end of the 2013-14 season. The three, as well as general manager Doug Wilson, play down any sense that this is it. ... The three are still integral to the team's success and recognized among the NHL's elite players. But their productivity has declined. So has their ice time. Combine those factors with the NHL's salary cap, and it's fairly certain the three would have to be willing to sign for less than their current salaries.

Should be one of the better series, they have been going at it all season. Also the Indians are on a big winning streak and play Boston ( Correct me if I'm wrong:)I think that will be good too. Tigers go out west where they always seem to fold.

The Indians and Rays play tonight for the wild card. Then the winner moves on to play the Red Sox.
