If I may as a Sharks fan, I'd like to post my thoughts.

- No fireworks right away from Parise/Suter, but they'll get better as they develop chemistry with the team
- Will make the playoffs, although (as of now) a lack of depth at D will prevent it from being a long run
- Seto will have a better year than last, but won't come near his career high of 31 goals. I believe he will really benefit by having Mitchy with him to bring a huge part of his San Jose life back to him
- Heatley will continue to trend downwards in point totals
- The real question mark of this team will be goaltending. Should be interesting to see how that plays out and if Hackett/Harding can push Backstrom out. If that happens, I think that opens a big door for you guys next off-season to acquire more talent


All in all, I hope both the Wild and Sharks have great seasons. When we made the big trades with Havlat/Heatley Seto/Burns, the hope was that you guys would make the playoffs and we at the very least would make it to the finals. I think with both teams failing to do that, we both have something to prove to the rest of the league.
