But then, whoever comes in will have to deal with players not putting in a work effort in their conditioning. Sharks are simply out of shape and do not have the stamina for 3 periods. I doubt with their salaries and personalities, any coach can come in now and push a conditioning regiment.

If this season goes in the basket, then the Sharks would do best breaking up the big names and get younger guys hungry to make a name for themselves. Those types are more willing to go through the conditioning needed.

Hockey requires conditioning more like football, and less like baseball or golf. Yet these guys appear to either stand around like they are playing golf, or skate behind the heels of the opposition.

Sweat more in practice, sweat less and win more in games.
