For the San Jose Sharks, a slow start to the season isn’t what the team envisioned. In the team’s first two games, they have lost twice. Both times to teams who missed out on the playoffs last season. Two games do not merit an overreaction, but these are games where the Sharks expected to begin banking

NHL coaches are critical to their teams. But not all are major difference-makers. This season is when we learn if San Jose Sharks coach Peter DeBoer is a difference-maker or pretender. This is the first of three pieces examining the three key questions for the San Jose Sharks upcoming season. This first key question for

The San Jose Sharks had one of the quietest offseasons of any NHL team. The major moves involved players they re-signed and one they didn’t. It is clear the Sharks management is largely pleased with the roster, and value continuity within the organization. Nonetheless, they have kept the door open for major change by leaving

The San Jose Sharks enter 2017-18 in a precarious position. After failing to come to terms with unrestricted free agent and franchise legend Patrick Marleau, the Sharks are poised to take a step back, at least offensively, without significant progress from the “five or six” rookies that general manager Doug Wilson expects to play on

For the San Jose Sharks, this offseason is pivotal. They lost their all-time leading goal scorer to free agency. They’ve re-signed their all-time best player, despite being 38 years-old, coming off a down season and finishing it with two torn knee ligaments. He got 16% raise. The Sharks have made few moves. Though I question

As I flipped my calendar to July, I saw the picture. It is a graceful albatross, flying above the coastline of the Falkland Islands. On July 1, 2017, the NHL began their new calendar season and, as always, a flurry of activity came with it. A bad deal is often called an albatross, and more

After so much speculation and tons of rumoured destinations, it seems as though big Joe Thornton will be returning to the San Jose Sharks on a one-year deal, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. If Jumbo Joe re-ups in SJ, his one-year deal there could be in excess of $6M. Certainly, at least $6M. — Bob
