If any word describes tonight, it is the word draining. Physical, emotional, and mentally just a draining game. If the fans and media are drained, I can only imagine what it must be like for both teams right now. That was a classic game for the Nashville Predator history books. Even though the Preds lost, there is still much to be positive about: 1. Coming back ...
I have to hit the sack tonight since I have a TV gig in the morning, but just wanted to preview what I'll talk about tomorrow, which will probably be a LONG blog: 1. A Game Recap 2. Quotes from the locker room that I got 3. My thoughts on the "bad blood" in this series 4. Ron Wilson and his now famous, "I HAVE NO COMMENT" 5. Keys to Game 3 and what I expect..... ...

These Sharks Can Be Scary...

Posted Friday | Comments 0
These Sharks of San Jose are a scary team this post season. They came into the playoffs as probably the hottest team and have continued their hot streak winning five of their first six playoff starts. Last night they proved just how good they are with a convincing 2-0 win on the road against Detroit. But here is where it gets more scary for me. I don't think this team ...

You be missed Smitty

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Mark Smith is a Flame. A signing by Darryl Sutter. Keenan had no decision on the matter. Mark smith a versatile role player who can fill on the top lines. His departure from the Sharks was due to the fact that he would not get much playing time in a team as deep in forwards as San Jose. Mark Smith tried out also with the Ranger who offered him a two way contract. ...
Before we get to the game, an update on Ryane Clowe. He skated (yesterday, I believe) for 25 minutes by himself, but Ron Wilson said that he won't be ready until March. "He won't be ready until March at the earliest," Ron Wilson told Emmons. "He's got to build up his strength. We're not going to risk him. Obviously, we could use him, but we've been getting by without hi...
Heading into tonight's game against the Blackhawks, the Sharks have put in a string of poor efforts. On a homestand that is very important in the middle of the season, the Sharks shave stubmled out of the gates. Hopefully tonight they can put it all together tonight and put in a good 60 minute effort. There have been many things missing from the Sharks' game so far on this...

Mats to San Jose?

Posted Monday | Comments 0
As you may have read, Ek has suggested that the San Jose Sharks may be interested in the services of Mats Sundin. My first reaction to this is: Why would I want to screw up good team chemistry to add someone who may or may not fit into the current team camaraderie? After all, the ride so far has been pretty sweet. (Fingers crossed) We hope it will continue as is and the ri...
Well Claude made it back. 2 way contract that has to be for league minimal is my guess as 1) Sharks don't have much free cap space 2) the guy is begging for a chance to come back. This totally reminds me of Ozolinsh. Old NHLer on a comeback attempt. Don't get me wrong I really liked Ozolinsh but I wouldn't say it was an overly successfull project. Now my question...

What do the Sharks do now

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
I see a lot of calls to send off Big Joe and Patty. What about the rest of the team? If the criteria for keeping a player are they come up big in the playoffs then it sounds like the whole roster needs to be thrown away. I don't subscribe to that line of thinking. The Sharks at the start of the season had all the lines working well, scoring came from everywhere. Thi...
Just put this up on my site, [url=http://thebluenotezone.wordpress.com/2009/04/30/thought-of-the-day-04-29-09/]Link Here[/url] thought I would share here as well. Once again the San Jose Sharks have flopped out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. A Coaching change was made, key veteran additions were made, and sadly San Jose met the same outcome. Is it possible that it is not ...
Garth Snow and the New York Islanders entered the offseason with quite a bang. The anticipation and excitement leading up to the draft party, the draft party itself, the selection of John Tavares, and the signing of a quality netminder in Dwayne Roloson all helped to give Islander fans a sense of rejuvenation and renaissance. However, since then, all has been pretty quiet ...

Sharks vs Flyers: Game 9

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Well a disappointing loss tonight to the San Jose Sharks as the Flyers played decently, but not well enough to win. San Jose did a great job blocking pucks and being positionally sound all game, especially in the second and third periods as they limited the Flyer chances. Philly never was able to establish its game and the attacks were quite often of the one-and-done varie...
The Preds played another solid game against the Sharks and this time they were rewarded with two points. The first period for the Preds had 14 shots, by 14 different players. A very odd stat. Really good game by the top line and Leggy's line. The Preds were 2 for 4 on the powerplay. Without the PP scoring I have a feeling this would have gone to the Sharks. O...
What a frustrating game last night. As I mentioned in my last post, the Bruins are severely undermanned (not in quantity, but quality) and will need to be extremely opportunistic in order to win games. The inconsistency in the lines and the minor league call-ups on defense mean that the Bruins will invariably give up more opportunities than they generate, and when those...
Hey ladies and Gentlemen its been forever since i have written my last article. I have been very busy with academics but considering that this is a make or break season for the san jose sharks i think i should comment on the last couple of games and what the sharks need to do looking forward. considering that i along with many other fans in the nhl have noticed the infl...

Was hoping to see some blogs about the goalies and those who have been moved down. Watching the 2 games I am pretty happy to see Mitchell looking like he is getting some of his game back. Anyone else have any surprises?

4-2 loss.

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Well I can't say I am surprised at a loss tonight. The Thrashers are 5 games into the season and have solid start and have played 4 games so far going 2-2. The Sharks have played 2 games in Europe and that is it. My feeling is the European start to the season is not a good thing as tonight they didn't look crisp and full of energy as most teams would after a week off....

Turn over turn over and turn over. Oh look another turn over. Neimi is not looking Neimi like and scoring just 2 goals isn't going to cut it. What went right. Anyone anyone anyone? My prediction will be 1 more bad game and then some yelling and screaming followed by a collective getting there crap together. Thursday we get to head off to Colorado and see the...

Watching the game on my iphone via slingbox last night with my friend who is a die hard Avs fan was an interesting experience. We see a small black thing on the screen in the net...but wait its just a spec of dust. :) Finally looked like the Sharks were starting to get things going. To me Mitchell's line was great, they were all over the place and giving the Avs a h...
After what could be argued as the best Sharks game this season, the team will have to put it out of their mind quickly and get right back to work against the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres are placed 9th in their conference, and 3rd in their division, but as with the Sharks, those numbers can be deceiving. Before their loss to Boston, Ryan Miller posted back to back shuto...
The west is very tight with 4 points being the difference between 4th and 11th place. The Sharks have 47 points (21 14 5) trailing Vancouver's 55 (25 8 5) and have never had a really strong streak that we have grown accustomed to over the past few seasons. Many people I know have said various things along the lines of "I've written this season off" and "Its time to blow ...
The first twenty minutes of tonight’s game may have been the worst we have seen from the San Jose Sharks this season. Fortunately, for the Sharks and their fans there are sixty minutes to a game and when you are as well coached and as talented as San Jose is, you can pull off big wins by showing up for the last forty minutes. “You have to give them credit they ca...

Deja Vu...

It’s 2010 all over again as the Detroit Red Wings will meet the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Semifinals. The seeding remains the same too, as the Sharks secured home ice advantage once again for this series. The Red Wings have been resting up for over a week after sweeping the Phoenix Coyotes last Wednesday, and have been able to mend their bumps and bru...

The Jimmy Howard Show

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
The Detroit Red Wings dropped their first game of the Western Conference Semifinals to the San Jose Sharks in overtime by a score of 2-1. They also answered a few questions which have been flying around the last week. “Will 8 days of rest be too much for the Red Wings?” Not in the end. The Wings started slow, almost sloppy, and it took a penalty kill which allowe...

Loss of Composure

The Detroit Red Wings head back to Joe Louis Arena down 2 games to the San Jose Sharks after losing 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. The loss was catalyzed by a complete lack of discipline by one of the least penalized teams in the regular season. The San Jose Sharks must have taken notice of Jimmy Howard’s reaction to Joe Pavelski’s snow shower in Game 1 and decided to tr...

The Frustration Continues...

Not only is it frustrating, but it’s getting a little eerie too. Exactly like 2010, the Detroit Red Wings enter their two home games down to the San Jose Sharks, and they lose a third period lead and drop Game 3 in overtime. This, of course, after beating the Phoenix Coyotes in the Quarterfinals. And that’s not all…elsewhere in the League, the Boston Bruins take...

Friday night was a big night for the Detroit Red Wings, as they force a Game 5 by besting the San Jose Sharks by a score of 4-3. The bounces went their way. That's about it. The same reason the Sharks have won the previous three games. There isn't a whole lot to say besides rehashing the same factors over and over again. Good goaltending, fowards were better on the ...

The Detroit Red Wings clawed their way back from a 2-goal deficit to force a Game 6 in Detroit with a 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. Through a stellar third period, the Red Wings scored 3 unanswered goals and left the Sharks shocked and shaken. The Sharks dominated play from the opening face-off right up until the start of the third period. Go...
The Detroit Red Wings, at one point down 3-0 in its series against San Jose, have forced a decisive Game 7 with a 3-1 victory last night at Joe Louis Arena. Finally…the Red Wings were able to put together 60 full minutes of solid play from all ends of the ice. Jimmy Howard was solid in goaltending again, only letting in one fluky goal between the pads from Logan Cout...
I've been reading just about all the articles I can find regarding tonight's Game 7 between the Sharks and the Wings and I'm seeing a pattern here that makes me wonder. Most every article mentions how the odds are very long indeed against the Red Wings mounting this historic comeback and winning tonight. To me, that mountian has already been climbed. Detroit already...
The Detroit Red Wings ended their season with a 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks at HP Pavilion last night. It was a very exciting game to watch and both teams played well. The Sharks just played that much better. It seems that the best players from each team stepped up. Just look at the scoresheet…Setoguchi, Couture, Marleau, Zetterberg, Datsyuk. Several articles f...
Last night the Wild defeated the Sharks 2-1. The goals were scored by Koivu and Bouchard for the Wild, Joe Pavelski for the Sharks. The win makes it the third 5 game win streak for the Wild this year, and extends their lead over the Blackhawks and Penguins as first overall in the NHL to 3 points. But that is not what the story was last night. The story last night was the N...
So its been a while since I have writen a blog here, so for those one or two people that read it I appologize. So after a disapponiting season many Sharks fans felt its time to really shake things up. So far that shake up has been a letter from the ownership saying that the season was unacceptable but Wilson is safe. Next we saw that head coach Todd McLellan was safe...
I don't know about you but I am getting really tired of sports taking the fans for granted. If it wasn't for us there would be no money to fight over. We support the teams. We buy the jerseys. We pay for the tickets and I am getting tired of both sides forgetting about the fans. I like most hockey fans will be very upset if the NHL and the NHLPA can't get the CBA deal done...

Same old sharks?

It been a season of highs and lows already, and we're just in 10 games. With the biggest additions of Larry Robinson and Jim Johnson, the special teams have been off to a blazing start. The PK sits at 4th best in the league while the PP (that seemed unstoppable) is still at a reasonable 8th in the league. While outscoring their opponents 28-12 in the first 7 games, the Sha...

In five total games this year, Hertl has seven goals and an assist. He has scored more goals than the Buffalo Sabres have scored in six games combined. In Tuesday's game, Hertl scored a...

San Jose does not seem to be the Penguins favorite place. They lost their 12th straight game there Monday night, 2-1 in a shootout. They haven’t won there since 1997. Tommy Wingels scored in the eighth round of the shootout and Antti Niemi stopped Steve Downie to give the Sharks the win. Niemi played amazingly, saving 39 of 40 shots in regulation and stopping seven of...
Let the California trip begin. First for the Columbus Blue Jackets is the San Jose Sharks in the Shark Tank (SAP Center).

The Sharks have only won 2 of their last 7 games where the Jackets have o...

Last night, the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the San Jose Sharks by a final score of 5-2 in the SAP Center, where the Sharks usually dominate teams.

CBJ- Solution Out There?

With my recent article of number one centers out there, a solution may have just appeared. Last week, rumors were out of center Tomas Hertl being available. The Sharks center was drafted 17th overall by this organization in 2012. Hertl has 26 points this year, and five away from the career high he had last year. He could end up with as much as 50 points this year, and that...
