It wasn’t long ago that the Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks were two of the best teams in the Western Conference — if not the league. Just last year, in fact, the Sharks were the No. 2 seed in the West and the Wings were No. 3. The Sharks eliminated the Wings in the Western Conference semifinals in seven games before losing to the Vancouver Canucks in the conference final. (Don’t worry, we’ll get to the Canucks in another post.) This year, though, the Wings were the No. 5 seed and the Sharks had to wait until the last couple days of the season to clinch a playoff spot — as the No. 7 seed.
With the news that Nabokov was potentially injured, I quickly grabbed Greiss up in my hockey pool, just in case. I then went to check out his stats on the Worcester Sharks webpage and noticed that he had a large red X next to his name. Usually, this means a player has been called up.
If he gets called up later today, this won’t be the first time that a website had been updated way before the press was notified of the transaction. Why is this? Do the GMs really say - ‘quick, call the webmaster in Worcester and let them know we’re calling up Greiss asap. Then, after lunch or when you have time, let the press know.’ Just sayin…....this seems quite odd.
