In San Jose, you definately see more Shark's gear (license plate frames, stickers, hats, shirts) than for the other area teams - save for the recent spike in Giant's gear following the WS victory. I think that is more of an indication that Shark's fans are rabid whereas the average Bay Area sports fan is more about the 49ers/Raiders and Giants/A's (none is a San Jose team however). That may change when the 9ers start playing in Santa Clara (the next town N of SJ) in a few years.

San Jose is a pretty serious hockey town though. I have heard from multiple sources that we have the largest adult hockey league or combination of adult hockey leagues in the U.S, totaling approximately 1,500 players.
