The San Jose Sharks Need To Start Winning

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

There are young players that have developed and are ready for bigger roles in the organization. While it’s almost certain they’ll have NHL jobs next fall, they might even have NHL gigs by January if the team’s topsy-turvy play continues.

What’s also in question, I would surmise, is the future of the coaching staff if the team’s play doesn’t improve through this important stretch of home games over the next few weeks.

Todd McLellan is tremendously respected around the league and he wouldn’t be out of a job long if something ever happened. But if the inconsistent play continues -- keeping in mind the losses to bad teams they've already had this season -- it wouldn’t be completely out of the question for Sharks management to consider a coaching change.

I think given the direction of a Sharks team that’s re-building, there are lots of possibilities to ponder if the team’s play doesn’t improve.
