The President's trophy and berth in the Stanley Cup Finals awais the Sharks with only L.A. and Vancouver as true conference rivals this season I expect (Detroit without Lidstrom, Nashville blown up, Edmonton too young).

It's the Year of the Shark. Thank you lockout.

I called it. It's still early, but only 7% of us thought it likely in the poll. Maybe the numbers will rise now...
