Surprising team interested in 2 of the top free agents still available

According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet , the San Jose Sharks are interested in both Vladimir Tarasenko and Matt Dumba.
Taresenko, 31, is still a viable offensive threat appearing in 69 games last season between the St Louis Blues and the New York Rangers he scored 18 goals and added 32 assists for a total of 50 points.
Dumba, 28, has spent his entire career with the Minnesota Wild. Last season he played in 79 games, collecting a total of 14 points including 4 goals and 10 assists.
Both players could help San Jose, but the question would be, if they were to sign there, how much term and dollar value would the Sharks have to give them.
Anything can happen in free agency, but this is certainly something to keep an eye on as free agency moves forward.
