Alex and Ben met up to talk about the Sharks and many of the conversations were a continuation of those from last week – What do the Sharks do in Logan Couture’s absence? Is there an asset that other teams want besides Aaron Dell? Who is going to step up among the Sharks’ young core, if anyone? Also, some thoughts on a loss to Edmonton and a win against Vancouver. Go Sharks!
What are the #sjsharks going to be come the playoffs? That question has been fairly well-answered if only considering the current roster make-up: they’re a playoff team, but not by much and maybe only if injuries stop occurring with such frequency. But what can they do about that? On this week’s podcast, Colin and Ben talk about what the Sharks have as assets (not much) to push this team over the top. The answer? Aaron Dell — future starter for the Calgary Flames. Probably.
It really looked like this week’s #sjsharks action would be uniformly depressing. But, instead, the Carolina Hurricanes gifted us with a win for the ages. So that made for a much less depressing podcast. Colin was nowhere to be found, so this week Ben and Alex talk about the 4th liners, organizational disarray, and look forward to a four game week ahead (with a pair of back-to-backs, no less). Go Sharks!
300 goals! How unexpected for a guy who was selected in the nether rounds of the NHL draft. With only 2 games to talk about this week, Alex and Ben spend a lot of time focusing on the injuries that are striking a bit of fear in the fanbase and the sudden end of Joe Pavelski’s scoring drought (and the milestone that came with breaking the schneid). Come have a listen and Go Sharks!
