Message Delivered By Todd McLellan

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

At his postgame media availability, Todd McLellan was as visibly livid as he has been all season. Less than 24 hours later, the Sharks’ head coach was still peeved after re-watching the 5-2 loss to the Kings on Saturday night on video.

“Still upset. It was the game we saw. Sometimes, you’re wrong and have a feeling on the bench, but when you go back and watch it, our guts were very accurate in what we felt and what we saw on the bench,” McLellan said, referring to himself and the team’s coaching staff.

The head coach relayed his displeasure in the form of a video session, as well as a good, old-fashioned team tongue-lashing. The latter was evident to anyone who happened to be wandering the bowels of the Honda Center shortly before the Sharks took the ice for an afternoon practice.

“I think he got it across crystal clear in the meeting we had this morning. I don’t think there was any grey areas in how he felt about the way we played, and rightfully so,” Adam Burish said.

Things are getting bad over there.  How bad?  Well, renowned Sharks blogger and active Army Sergeant EgoSGT just posted that he’s, like, totally done defending that organization and their coach.

So, you know, APOCALYPSE!

There is also a number of internet commentors who’ve just had enough, goddammit.  Their last never has been severed.  Things have not been going on at all as they envisioned, and it’s time for them to lash out.

The doom of the Sharks franchise, it approaches!  I don’t know how anything can withstand the withering scorn of such an informed, accomplished group.
