Podcast 9 – The One With The Puck (Un)Luck

Some combination of Circling the Cup podcasters had been present at each of the last five home games (with Colin here in the states from Sweden, but still absent from the podcast). Despite each home game hosting at least two of us, we experienced a combined 4 wins (Alex and Ben were present for only one win each but Colin was lucky to see both). So, we were on a path to a pretty bitter podcast, I think, until that last one was a 7 – 0 drubbing (somewhat luck-driven) of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In honor of the Sharks’ awful home record, we talked a lot about puck luck (including PDO), and a little bit about last week’s start to the ‘trading frenzy’ with Nashville and Columbus’ joint move of Jones for Johansen, heads up. Spoiler: The Sharks don’t have much room to maneuver over the next 51 days, thanks to No Movement Clauses and salary cap realities. Sorry, fans!
