|Who will Todd McLellan
earn his victory as Sharks head coach against?
||My crystal ball says it will
be a team from SoCal.
||No one. In his morning skate
on Thursday, the Sharks head coach screams "I AM McLOVIN", after which he is
promptly fired for quoting a movie that wasn't a Will Ferrell flick.
||The fans. McLellan isn't Ron
Wilson, so check that one off the list.
score the first goal of the season for San Jose?
defenseman's leg/skate/ass. Oh wait, that's Chris Pronger's face.
Murray. It's always the guy you least expect.
|How many points (in the
standings) will the Sharks record this season?
||92 to 95.
lead the Sharks in goals scored this season?
Jonathan Cheechoo is the answer. Let's all face it he may have gotten better on
defense and he's not half bad along the boards.
Marleau. Upon finishing the year on top of the G category, the Captain will
turn to fans of the league, league analysts, and a few choice LGS posters and
proceed to go "NEENER NEENER NEENER".
Clowe, parked in front of the net, cashing in on garbage goals. We'll take 'em
anyway we can get 'em.
|Who will lead the Sharks
in power play points?
||Mr & Mrs Thornton's
destined for a breakout season?
||I am sure
everyone hitches this wagon to Joe Pavelski. Me, I am hoping that the biggest
improvement comes in the shape of better tasting Diet Pepsi at the Arena. The
stuff has been awful for years. One can always hope!
Shelley. He'll beat the crap of out Mustachio Parros again, and while they're
sitting in the box, Shelley will realize that he won the fight and didn't
properly fulfill his role on this squad as team punching bag, so he'll break
out of the sin bin to go get pummeled a few times by the mustached one.
Ehrhoff. With all the defensive help around him, he'll get to take more chances
|Who will struggle the most
||Todd McLellan as he fidgets
and cringes as his team adjusts to their first new system in several
||Brian Boucher. That door can
get tough to open in the dead of winter.
||Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Rob
||Marc-Edoard Vlasic. Offensive
minded defense is not his strong suit.
will the Sharks place in the Western Conference
to keep the fans happy, while simultaneously disappointing them too. Let's go
|Who will the Sharks
dominate this season / who will own them?
||Dominate is too strong a word
I think that they will beat the teams that they are supposed to beat and
struggle with Dallas & Anaheim
||This is the year the Sharks
handle the Pacific Division minus Phoenix. 4 wins against Anaheim, Dallas, and
LA, while dropping 4 of 6 to the Dogs.
||Will dominate Vancouver, be
owned by Dallas
||Dominate: everyone in the
Central Division not named the Detroit Red Wings Owned: Detroit, Dallas
||Dominate: Anaheim / Owned:
Sharks make the playoffs, how far will they go?
||I can see
them making it to third base where Niklas Lidstrom and his Wings will be
waiting with ball in glove But remember injuries are a big reality in sports
and that is why we are gonna watch these games and that is why they don't
simply hand that dang cup to the wings again. Detroit will have to earn it and
the Sharks should be rollin come April.
in the playoffs, need I even go further than that? May fever baby. However, any
fan/analyst paying attention will realize a second round exit this year is not
failing to meet expectations, but rather right where they should be, if not
slightly exceeding them.
round and out.
holding the Cup in June
maybe Columbus, but not a mile farther.
