The crazy thing about Chicago is that they really don't have any reason to deal Sharp for prospects - they have young D and forwards coming up. They're really best served dealing Sharp for a high 1st in this year's draft and calling it a day.
There's rumors that Pitt wants to deal their pick in a package for a forward but it's obviously not a real high pick. There's a few teams that are in the top 10 to 15 picks willing to move their 1st rounders for players.
Sharp is good but I don't think he'll be his Blackhawks level on a new team unless it's got a comparable center like Kane or Toews to pair with him, hence the potential for the deal to be risky for whoever acquires him.
And no I would not move Merrill or Larsson for him at all.
Sharp got really streaky this season and at one point was on a pretty significant cold drought.
