San Jose Sharks

One And Out For The San Jose Sharks

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, and the Giants, who get there and lose). I think it was easy to see from the very beginning that this team didn’t have what it takes to win it all, so for me my mind was set that even if they got past the Ducks, they weren’t going to go very deep. I’m sure injuries played a big part in this collapse, but we’ll all have to wait a few days to see the injury report.

But injuries or not, the team did disappoint and we’re staring at a very interesting summer - will Doug Wilson keep the team together? Which free agents will he re-sign? Which players on their last year of their contract will he keep or trade? How will trading away picks the last few season affect our talent pool in Worcester? Stay tuned Sharks fans, we’re going to still have a LOT to talk about.

So - now that our team is out of the playoffs - who do forlorn Sharks fans root for now?

  1. I would think people have seen this site before, but just in case you haven’t….

    This website is great for showing who the available RFAs and UFAs are and how each persons contract hits the overall salary cap.

    I am not sure why I posted this now, but I figured why not.

  2. If I root for anyone it will be for an underdog - I hope the Rangers knock out the Caps tonight. But let’s face it - they may as well just give the Cup to the Wings right now. Other than that, I’m rooting for a Tigers - Giants World Series.

  3. Son of OT,

    You might as well do for the Redwings what I always do with the University of Florida…root for any team that plays against them. Right now, the last thing I want to see is a repeat by the Wings. They certainly have the talent to do it, but I am rooting for Anaheim in the west just to knock off the Wings.

  4. Sharksfan!!

    I haven’t written as I am a VERY VERY superstitious fan. Anyone who has read my blogs knows that.

    It’s time for Shark fans to root for ANAHEIM! Red Wings need to be schooled…..

    Two words right now: JONAS HILLER

    Did I just jinx the Ducks?
