The San Jose Sharks are 4-5-0 and it’s arguable whether they’ve been lucky or unlucky, good or bad over the first 9 games of the season. Basically, we have no idea yet what this team is, though we mostly agree it’s not exactly well-coached. Alex, Ben and Colin talk about what this team is and needs to do before the trade deadline to be an actual playoff team. Hey, we hear that Vegas has a guy that might be available and solve some problems.
The time of the young Sharks is upon us! Carpenter, Heed, and Ryan have joined Meier, and Labanc in the NHL line-up and the Sharks have been far better for it. Alex and I talk about the transition across the the last two weeks to this younger line-up and hope for more of the same going forward. Go Sharks!
The regular season is here! No facepunchers are on the roster! Kevin Labanc had 2 goals in the first game! The power play scored! You’d think this would be a recipe for happy Sharks fans. And for the most part, you’d be right — aside from the pesky detail of the final score of game 1. The PK was garbage. Jones was not good.
But it’s one game. So Colin and Ben talk mostly about what you can and can’t learn from a single game at the beginning of the season. There’s a long way to go. Beat LA and Go Sharks!
