Randy Hahn, TV play by play man for the San Jose Sharks, answers some fan mail…
Randy, I have the Sharks Stanley Cup recipe. First they need to trade Joe Thornton to St. Louis for David Backes. Next they need to sign Owen Nolan. Then they have to play Nick Petrecki all season. Logan Couture should move to the first line. Then I would trade Walin, Huskins & Mitchell for Sheldon Souray or Marc Staal. And have Derek Joslin fill the extra spot on defense. This should keep the Sharks under the cap as well.
You certainly have some drastic ideas to shake up the Sharks, Zubair. The problem is they hardly need the drastic kind of changes that you suggest. After all, they won the Western Conference in the regular season and got to the final four in the playoffs. I like Backes, but for Joe Thornton? Come on! if Doug Wilson made a trade like that he’d be booed by Sharks fans worse than Pronger and Fleury combined! My take on the team is that they need more consistent play from their 3rd and 4th lines, especially in the playoffs, and they need to find a puck moving defenseman from either inside the organization or elsewhere. And obviously the goaltending has to come through….

The show is called Sharks Late Night Confidental and the one you can watch below was done from the hotel in Denver after last night’s game.
I am impressed that both Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda had enough energy to do something like this.
You may not be a fan of the video unless you are a Sharks fans, but wouldn’t it be nice to see something like this from your broadcasting team?
By the way, I asked Randy how many takes to do the video? They nailed it on the first take. True professionals!
from the San Jose Sharks,
Good things come in threes and the Sharks will see their third staff member work their 1,000th National Hockey League game this season. This time it’s not a behind the scenes person as Sharks Television Play-by-Play man Randy Hahn will call his 1,000th NHL game Saturday when the Sharks face the Calgary Flames.
continued and Randy’s favorite call is (Detroit fans, don’t watch)...
from Owen Good at Kotaku,
The scene is familiar: Midway through the first period of an NHL game, and the shot knots up the score. Randy Hahn considers the action for a split-second and leans into his microphone.
“The Sharks have come right back and tied this one up,” says the television voice of San Jose hockey. “That goal is a real refresher - you get down early, but you’ve come right back and tied it up here in the first period.”
It’s 2:30 p.m., Aug. 20 in Novato, Calif. San Jose’s next game will be 28 days and 400 miles away, in Los Angeles. Hahn is familiar to South Bay fans through his work on Comcast Sports Net. But he’s in the North Bay today as the play-by-play man for NHL 2K10, cutting some final audio for the game before its Sept. 15 release.
It’s a job Hahn could do with his eyes closed, and not because it’s easy.
fromm the Mercury News,
They played him alongside Russ Hodges. That’s saying a lot.
OK, so it was hyperbole and some humor from KNBR’s Gary Radnich on Wednesday morning. But Randy Hahn’s TV call of Joe Thornton’s game-winning goal Tuesday night is destined to become part of the Sharks soundtrack, particularly if the goal leads to a playoff run that at last won’t disappoint fans.
“HE SCORES! HE SCORES! HE SCORES!” Simple. And, no, it’s no “The Giants win the pennant!” But it packed some deep-seated emotion.
“It’s raw, it’s primal,” Hahn told us Wednesday. “It just comes from inside you. And in that moment, you know what, it comes especially on the road for me.”
Watch and hear Hahn’s call…
