Problems Everywhere For Sharks

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,

Obviously the message about getting off to a good start didn’t sink in. After that 3-2 loss to Anaheim, the Sharks are 1-3 after four games for the first time since 2002-03 and we all remember how that turned out, right?

Just adding a little historical perspective, not suggesting this team — like that one — won’t make the playoffs. It is only four games.

Still, Todd McLellan doesn’t sound very happy about discovering after the last three games that he’s got problems to fix at both ends of the ice.

“You look at the three games we’ve played in the last four nights and they’re very similar in a lot of ways,” he said. “Mistakes – and some real dumb mistakes — that led to the other team’s goals and then at the other end, a ton of chances that didn’t go in.

“Which end of the rope are we going to fix? In my opinion, it’s the dumb mistakes, the errors,” McLellan said. “I think the offense will take care of itself.”

I’m sure Heatley and Setoguchi will pick it up… Oh wait, I mean glass Havlat. How’s that working out?
