This is Like Deja Vu All Over Again....Yogi Berra

I turn on the game tonight and basically predicted what would happen. No Frolov, Cammalleri, or Modry. Sharks come out strong and only score 1 goal. They decide to take the 2nd period off and lose in a shootout. Anyone else seen this movie before? I could not believe it but I actually got off the couch at the end of OT since I knew what would happen. I swear other teams get to OT and think to themselves "why should we push forward when we have this game already in hand once we get to the shootout." At this point I say just throw 3 forwards and Ozo on the ice during OT and go for it. Hell, pull Nabby and play 5 forwards in OT...ok I'm kidding (sorta)

If you missed it, President and CEO Greg Jamison pulled RWilson aside after practice and had a closed door meeting after practice. Why was this unusual you ask? First, Jamison decided to do this right before Rwilson was to speak to the media leading to speculation of a tongue lashing. For the record, both Wilson and Jamison said they spoke about possible rules changes they would talk about during the Board of Governor's meeting going on Thurs/Fri at Pebble Beach. The more interesting fact to me was the timing of this meeting and that is occurred while the hockey world and hockey writers converged on the Bay Area. It will be interesting to see what comes of these meetings especially regarding the scheduling issue. Interesting things usually happen when all the GM's get together. The Sharks have cap space, an inconsistent team and a coach on shaky ground. You never know what will happen in between rounds of golf. Heck, if Brett Hull can be a co-GM, why can't we bring in Pat Falloon to coach?

Did anyone else notice they changed the Sharks logo on the official website back to the old one? I know many fans out there we're complaining about the new logo/jerseys. Also there's a survey on the website asking how do you feel about the new logo. Any chance they might go back to the old logo on the new jerseys?

It's back to the new logo now. It may have just been a technical problem, or maybe you were on the minor league team's page? I like the new logo and love the new jerseys, I just wish they would use that awesome fin logo for something.

The Sharks dominated the first and third periods and looked great. The second period was weak, but this is another game that they should have one, considering the effort they put in. The Sharks are craving a RELIABLE first/second line scorer. With Marleau and Cheechoo apparently battling terrible heroin addictions (I assume, given their play), the top two lines basically just have Thornton, Michalek, and Setoguchi who look like they can make something happen.

I love Michalek, but I wouldn't say he's exactly lighting it up. I'd say the offense is Thornton with part-time efforts from Michalek, Marleau, and Setoguchi and cameo appearences by JR.

Now you're talking crazy. Clearly Rob Gaudreau would be the next choice for coach.
