Show some love for Scott Nichol

I dunno, but I feel like it's about time that this guy gets a thread of his own. I hated Scott Nichol when he skated for teams like Nashville, but I'll swallow my pride and say he's been a very good addition to the Sharks this year.

Sure, he only has somewhere around 4 points so far, but he's a role player whose contributions can't be valued with metrics. He's a grit/energy player and a bit of a hard-nosed/disturber type, providing the kind of lift which every team needs, most especially the Sharks. I never see the guy take a shift off, he's always flying at 110%, moving his skates and throwing his weight around. He doesn't appear to fall into the typical Sharks pattern of lack of energy/skating/passion that we've seen time and time again. I like that. Its what the Sharks need.

I think he's made a difference on the bottom 2 lines for the Sharks and I believe (keeping my fingers crossed) that is going to pay big dividends come playoff time.
