Pittsburgh Penguins: Bylsma Offically “Head Coach”

It looks like Ray Shero and the Pittsburgh Penguins front office had waited long enough. Today, it was announced that interim head coach Dan Bylsma is being stripped of the “interim” title and has signed a contract to be the Penguins head coach.
This is certainly good news and Bylsma deserves all the credit. If not [...]

One And Out For The San Jose Sharks

*sigh* - well Sharks fans, we took a step backward this year. The San Jose Sharks are out of the playoffs early…again. To me, the only thing worse than not getting to the finals is getting to the finals and losing (I know this from watching the 49ers, who get there and win, [...]

25 Years To Life For The San Jose Sharks

My friend Paul found an article that described playoff hockey as “hockey’s angrier, older brother that just got released from prison”. If that’s true, the San Jose Sharks look like a team that did time with Martha Stewart instead of Charles Manson. My opinion of what it will take for the San Jose [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: Guten Nacht to Philadelphia Flyers

All I can say is…wow! What an amazing comeback for the Penguins. The Flyers went up 3-0 and all seemed lost until Max Talbot took on a fight against Daniel Carcillo of the Flyers. Talbot pretty much got his butt kicked, but that fight ended up being the turn around point for the Penguins who [...]

San Jose Sharks Defeat Anaheim Ducks In Game 7 – Move On To Stanley Cup Finals

Okay, so that’s my dream headline, but having some time to think about it, here’s my prediction: if the San Jose Sharks manage to come back and win this series against the Anaheim Ducks, they will make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. I didn’t say they’d win in the finals, [...]

Check Please…The San Jose Sharks Leaving Early

Sharks fans, I think we’re done. A while back I wrote that, even if we don’t go deep in the playoffs, all I wanted to see from the San Jose Sharks was the kind of effort where you know they left nothing on the ice. Well, we didn’t get much of anything this [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins Mid-Series Update

With three games in the books for the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals series matching the Penguins vs the Flyers, the series is led by the Penguins 2-1. Games 1 and 2, were dictated by the Penguins. They made the right plays at the right time and jumped out to a 2-0 series lead. However, yesterday’s [...]

The San Jose Sharks And The Curse Of Jim Kelly

From 1990-1993 the Buffalo Bills tallied up regular season records of 13-3, 13-3, 11-5 12-4, featured NFL Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Marv Levy, went to 4 straight Super Bowls – and lost every one of them.
Are the San Jose Sharks the Buffalo Bills of hockey? Are they destined [...]

San Jose Sharks And The Lost Puppy

In my previous life I was a die hard 49er fan (I still am but admittedly less due to team futility). Back in those days I used to look down on the other sports, scoffing at their ridiculous 7 Game series. I felt that football was far superior because the playoffs are decided [...]

Game On: San Jose Sharks

I’ve been waiting for this day for about 11 months. Tonight the San Jose Sharks start on their quest to win the Stanley Cup – but you already knew that. This is where the whole enchilada starts – everything else up until now has basically been a 6 month appetizer.
Some of the guys [...]
