If San Jose doesn't make the playoffs, I am very interested to see what happens to their team this off season.

dude do you even watch the sharks? I cannot stand people that continue to use the no show joe label when hes been an absolute monster in the last 2 post seasons already, hes easily been the Sharks top player this season and Marleau as well, if it wasn't for them 2 we would have been long eliminated from the postseason race. Havlat and Niemi maybe they have both had a rocky season to say the least. The Sharks struggles have nothing to do with Thornton and Marleau, the top line has been the only bright spot as of late. It stems from the fact in the last 10 games we have had literally no production from lines 2-4, we got exposed for our lack of top 6 depth when Havlat went down, trying to fill the void with a bunch of AHL guys that had no business in the top 6. This was okay when Couture was playing lights out but since hes gone ice cold along with Clowe, we literally have no secondary scoring.

As with any sports franchise, when a team isn't doing well people want to be able to point the finger and say "He's the main reason the team is doing poorly."

It's rare to see "fans" attribute a team's lack of success to the entire roster rather than singling out individuals who they expect to carry the dead weight of the other no-shows on the team.

Is it coincidence that these teams are all struggling together now knowing that they are going to make the playoffs? Sure, you can give Detroit a bit of a pass since they have been missing Datsyuk, Howard and Lidstrom.

But my point being is if you look at all the teams who are making a strong effort to either make the playoffs, or battle for positioning down the road, they're giving it their 110% every night compared to teams that have already made it.

Now CDC take a deep breath and just watch this team take form when it matters. It doesn't "matter" now, and it won't "matter" till later. We all learnt our lesson from last year. Have faith!!

You know what's funny, if I substituted the names of Sharks players for Ducks players, we almost sound like identical teams. Although the Sharks didn't take November/December off.

PS: Your team blows

The Sharks have dropped 5 straight. 2 of those have been shutouts and the remaining being 1-2 goal games. It's not like they're getting blown out every night.

They've been getting a ton of shots on goal (4 of the last 5 games with 30+ shots) but can't convert on anything. You can have the best goaltending in the world but at the end of the day you win by scoring more goals than the opposition.

The whole team is playing poorly right now, you can't really pin it on a couple players.

i talked about this last year during the playoffs. i sure as shit can't think of another sport that changes the rules without actual rule changes.

i really find it takes away from the integrity of the game because no one, including the players, knows wtf is going on.

I'm willing to hedge that there is a degree of energy saving going on. But there is some concern for worry:

Teams like St. Louis and Pittsburg who have the pieces and processes in place to make a deep run, also have huge momentum heading into the playoffs. They may run out of gas come the conference or cup finals, but that is irrelevant to the teams they beat who have been saving their energy since the all-star break in hopes to make a deep run.

Once you make the playoffs, literally ANY thing can happen. The first round is where some of the best hockey is played, and where some of the biggest upsets are found. The 4 contending teams saving energy, that energy is useless when you can't get out of the first round. With all the parity in the league these days, can an elite team who has saved energy beat a good team that is in the middle of using its energy and has the push of momentum and confidence behind them? That is a really tough call to make.

Mind you there are still a lot of games left, get on a 3 or 4 game win streak and all criticism is lost. Lose 3 or 4 straight heading into the playoffs, and you lose a lot of your confidence as a team.

Paper work is being finalized that would see Alexander Radulov return to the NHL this season and the National Hockey League Players' Association said they would agree to bypass waivers for the Russian forward if he decides to return to the Nashville Predators

It's official: the Canucks will get knocked out of the first round because Tony Gallagher said so.

I'm turning my attention to the Whitecaps now because at least I don't have to deal with a bunch of Debbie-Downer armchair coaches and GMs on the intraweb.

Fuck Gallagher. The Canucks can be having the Stanley Cup parade and he would be bitching about how the game winning goal was weak or the defence bailed out Luongo in the finals. It puzzles me why he's still working with the province.
