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.
Postponed, this hockey season is. And what the hell are we supposed to do now?
Well, Alex and Ben have board game and booze suggestions for those long winter days at home…alone or stuck with others in social isolation. Listen in to find out what they are.
The title of this podcast says a lot about what we talk about this week. But also, we took questions on the NHL salary cap projections coming out of the GM meetings and what the Sharks can do in FA this summer. So enjoy!
It was the strangest of trade deadlines for #sjsharks fans — the San Jose Sharks were, for the first time in a long time, sellers at the trade deadline. The return was worth talking about, and that’s what Ben and Alex spent most of this week’s cast discussing.
No, this episode isn’t about coffee. It’s just that Alex was high out of his gourd on coffee, apparently, the entire episode. But Starbucks, if you want to sponsor us with free late Friday night lattes, hit me up.
Anyway, this week we got some great questions about the rest of the season and beyond from the community and also bid farewell to Brendan Dillon, who’s going to a better place — Washington D.C.. And the playoffs.
Go Brendan Dillon. Thanks for everything.
We can rebuild it. Just not this year. So, what do the #sjsharks do with all of the LTIR cap space they just got? What do they do with their coaching spot once Boughner is not re-upped (we hope). What does the NHL do about the systemic racism that gives bad guy Evander Kane 3 games for a bad hockey play but $5000 fine to bad guy Zdeno Chara for clubbing bad guy Brendan Gallagher illegally? Colin and I discuss this and more.
Tomas Hertl is hurt and we’re sad. The season is over (it already was, actually), and I wish the #sjsharks realized it. Listen to us talk about that and more, in this here podcast.
Deboer is going to win the Cup with Vegas and have literally nothing to do with it, because that’s #sjsharks fandom in a nutshell. We talk about that and whether the team in teal should or should not consider hiring Gerard Gallant, since Boughner is bad…ner.
