San Jose Sharks Travel for Miles and Miles

If you are a hockey player and have a fear of flying, do not play for the San Jose Sharks, or for any West Coast team really. During the 2016-17 season the Sharks travel about four percent less than they did during the 2015-16 season, not including any travel associated with pre-season or any playoff run the Sharks may make.  That sounds like a nice break, but it is not.  The Sharks...

Brent Burns’ Back to Back Beautiful Boxscores

Everyone who reads this space knows my love for Brent Burns. His beard brings about a magisterial power that guides him on the ice.

He followed it up with 2 assists and three shots against the...

San Jose Sharks Appear on Track in the Early Going

Three games is a small sample size — I know. But as the San Jose Sharks settle into their 2016-2017 campaign, its clear that this team is on track, the mojo that took them to the Stanley Cup Final months ago not far removed. Sure, they suffered their first loss on Monday in a 7-4 road defeat to the New York Rangers, a game that featured defensive miscues and mistakes galore to...

Jonathan Quick has always had a bit of a temper, and it was on display right away to start the 2016-17 season. In the second of NBC’s Wednesday Rivalry Night games, the Sharks hosted the Kings, and tempers boiled over after Logan Couture tied things up in the first period. As the Sharks celebrated, Quick rushed out of his crease and tried to fight the first Sharks skater he could...

The San Jose Sharks need to pay Brent Burns

2016-17 Season Preview: San Jose Sharks

We should have saw this coming. After years of failing to meet expectations, the public wasn't expecting much from the Sharks in 2015-16 after missing the playoffs in 2014-15 and naturally made the Stanley Cup Finals. They are one of my favorite teams to watch for the absolutely loaded top 6 that they have while Brent Burns is making wild offensive rushes all game. There's a ton...

The San Jose Sharks have their own beer with a not-so-appetizing name

Would you drink chum? If you know what chum is, you’re probably puking right now. But “chum” is the name of a new craft beer that is the product of Gordon Biersch’s Brewing company, and the NHL’s San Jose Sharks. It’s a dry hopped red ale, which represents the blood from the fish parts which attract sharks. And just as chum attracts real sharks, this chum will get the...

It's never easy to come back after a crushing defeat.  Despite coming so close to winning it all, the San Jose Sharks will be forced to rebound in 2016-17.
