San Jose Sharks Redefine Insanity
What’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.
