San Jose Sharks

San Jose Sharks Redefine Insanity

San Jose SharksWhat’s the definition of Insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This in a nut shell is what the Sharks have done during their 6 game losing streak. Sure, they have tweaked the lines because of injury, but still resort to their top players to make plays to end this painful losing trend.

Because a friend was able to give me discounted tickets last night, I was able to see the ineptitude of the Sharks firsthand. With the exception of Clowe and Nichol, it was hard to see any sense of urgency, especially with our top line skating 5 on 5. Some days we blame the goaltending, others the scorers and still others the D-men. Last night, you could have blamed all three.

A very angry Todd McLellan said after the game, “Maybe some guys need to watch a few games.” Gee you think Todd? What took you so long to notice?

One has to be Wallin. What the hell, he looks drunk out there. Another in Heatly, he should be use to the treatment since this is what happened to him in Ottawa. Because many of our stars have no-trade clauses, they will be hard to move. This however should not keep McLellan on benching a few guys.

I still don’t know why we don’t recall Cheechoo, he is only leading the Worcester Sharks in goals, assists and points. Give a call to Owen Nolan (ala the Ducks with Teemu) to play half the year. Sit Wallin and play Joslin.

I hate to say it boys, but if we don’t make the play-offs, it’s time to blow up the team. And that includes the GM and coach.

  1. It’s interesting that other teams would (and have) fired the coach by this time. I’ll bet you they can’t recall Cheechoo because of salary implications (how do you recall a guy who’s still making a salary that used to be on your books?!). Why Nichol isn’t the captain is beyond me…

  2. Cheechoo actually has a tryout contract and not a regular NHL contract. If they were to recall him, he would count as the NHL minimum salary and fit within the cap. Remember he was last the property of Ottawa and they released him. His previous contact with San Jose in null and void.

    Also we could send Jaime McGinn back to the minors (No goals/4 assists) and save $996K.

    Come on Boys, Let’s get a streak going.

  3. Well, the Sharks finally did something different…They won a game! And Heatly scored two goals, and McGinn scored his first of the season. Sure it was against St. Louis, but two points is two points, and maybe we are on the verge of a tenacious turn around. I am not holding my breath for that–one win against a worse team than us is not some kind of miracle salve, but it is a step in the right direction. Let’s just hope that The Sharks can continue moving forward and that they don’t slip and slide any further down the standings.
