Petshark: Talking Stick

“Everyone wants to know” what is up with the San Jose Sharks. They signed a new player! Oh, people don’t mean the Stalberg signing? Okay then.
“Everyone wants to know” might be putting it too strongly, but anyone who’s anyone has noticed that the Sharks are playing way way WAY below expectations.
The players reassure us that they are engaging in the recommended amount of yelling during and after a game, even if they seem calm in front of the cameras. That’s good to know. Maybe someone should set up a noise meter in the room just to be sure.
Todd McLellan had to leave the game for treatment after a Wild stick hit him in the head when a Sharks player not to be named here pushed that Wild player into the bench. Please let McLellan be okay, least of all because the Sharks need him.

Then the Sharks lost, 4-3. That stung. I spent the day reviewing this “first to three” notion. I don’t think winning teams abide by it.
I was so happy for those days after the Sharks won a game… oh… wait, how long ago was that? Maybe it was the Flyers. Yep, it was the Flyers, last night. I cannot recall when the Sharks last won. I was so happy about that too, I was afraid to write anything in case I jinxed it.
