Alex, Ben, and Colin caught up on Sunday and reacted to the Devan Dubnyk trade (Colorado, baby, what is you doin’?) and made predictions about the trade deadline. Now you can listen to see what they got right and what they got wrong.
Also, Marcus Sorensen, please stop punching people.
It feels like in the last couple years we always get to the point where we have to ask: is this team going to make the playoffs? This year, unlike the past, we’ve considered the current iteration of the #sjsharks “not a playoff team.” But maybe that’s changed. Alex and Ben talk about whether this team making the playoffs is good or bad, ultimately.
Colin, Ben, and Alex reflect on what we didn’t know about Paul Martin’s struggles and about mental health in sports and in the United States at large. We also talk about the Sharks’ many losses this week, but less so.
That 7-6 loss was something, eh? But #sjsharks fans are split on whether losing 7-6 is entertaining or not. This is the main topic this week, you know, aside from whether the Sharks are bad or historically bad. My audio is also a little low for some reason, so I’ll fix that for the next one.
The #sjsharks made the baffling decision this week to throw their bad goalie under the bus. That gets us started on a heck of tear into this team. This is a team that is fully off the rails, and it has Sharks fans asking if Doug Wilson needs to go. We discuss how bad things have gone thanks to his recent contract decisions.
The team itself isn’t giving us much to be very happy about, but the return of Drew to the broadcast team gives us hope that maybe the old pairing on TV is about to be recreated. We talk about that, but also about the not-very-good things on the ice over the last two weeks as well.
Colin and I got to drive this week’s podcast without parental guidance. This is what you get, Sharks fans. Mainly I complained about decisions to waste minutes on older mediocrities and EK65 being shackled to Vlasic. Colin provided reasoned responses.
The #sjsharks are 1-1 after a home-and-not-home series against the Arizona Coyotes…and so far things don’t look very different from a year ago…mostly. We talk about our early takeaways on systemic changes, players getting a shot at the NHL roster, etc, in this second podcast of the year.
Welp, we’ve finally arrived at the beginning of a new season and things look very different for the team in teal. No Jumbo (sadface), no Melkman (happy face), and basically no bottom 6. Oh and our defense is aging like they just drank from the wrong cup in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. So, we’ve got our thoughts on the season to come. Enjoy! And apologies for hearing me playing with poker chips. I forgot that even if I muted myself on discord, OBS doesn’t care.
