Thank you. All I said after last night's game was "speed kills."

I don't fault the Sharks so much for last night's loss. The Av's were significantly faster than us out there... it was only a matter of time. It's why they gave us such fits last year in the PO's.

It isn't this Shark's team fault for not being fast. It's management for not assembling a team that meets the overall criteria/requirements for what it takes to win in the NHL today.
