GM Mike Grier is in the house. Lots of stuff has changed since the last time we podded. So, this 2 hour episode should catch you up on how *we* feel about things. It’s a ride. Enjoy.
We look back on the largely wasted 2021-2022 San Jose Sharks’ season but are cautiously optimistic about what comes next: a new GM, a new coach, and…development? Let’s hope.
Doug Wilson is stepping aside permanently! Doug’s tenure has lasted so long he was already GM when Ben became a Sharks fan. That’s a LONG time for anyone to be in charge. So, Ben, Alex, and Colin talk about Doug’s legacy and what we think comes next.
Alex and Ben talk about the hits, misses, and omissions of the Sharks’ trade deadline.
Tomas Hertl decided to stick around for 8 years (and about 8.2 per year) and we’re not sure why. Alex and Ben talk about Hertl, the way forward, and our thoughts on what was, at the time we recorded, the upcoming trade deadline. You can imagine what we’ll have to say the next time we cast.
This one is posting almost a full week late because I (Ben) am a big, dumb, forgetful idiot. But there was better game-related stuff to discuss last week than this week, so maybe this will help you get over the most recent losses. Go Sharks!
You might have heard that James Reimer got hurt in a game this week. The #sjsharks then let the world know it was bad by trading for much beloved retread Alex Stalock. And then they continued to lose. So, yeah, things are not great in the Tank, though the “tank” is starting to look better. Ben, Alex, and Colin talk about all this and more.
It’s the full trifecta this week, as Alex rejoins Colin who previously rejoined Ben. And we’re here to let you know…The San Jose Sharks are not very good. EK65 really was driving the bus. So…listen in and hear what comes next for the team in teal as the trade deadline approaches.
Alex couldn’t make it, but Colin found his way back to Sweden and has caught up with the Sharks. Ben get’s Colin’s take on the things he missed while away and Colin asks Ben about random Shark stuff. As one does. Go Sharks!
Erik Karlsson is hurt and probably not coming back until late March. How will that affect our boys in teal? How does that affect decisions around pending free agent Tomas Hertl? Well, honestly? We aren’t sure. But Alex and Ben talk it through this week.
