I also predict a 3 or so goal victory for the Sharks tonight ... just not feeling it ... unless we get an early goal to kinda quiet the crowd and the next two ... our offense is gonna suck this year without Sullivan (I'm not expecting him to play here ever again) Weber (4-5 weeks according to Poile)
Nothing gives me any reason to have hope for tonights game. Teams can't solidify their spot in the post-season this early, but they can sure dig themselves in a pretty deep hole...if injuries hit, we won't have a chance. Right now is the time to put some points on the board and give ourselves some room for error later in the year, when injuries, suspensions, etc. will account for some depleted lineups.
Blahhhhh, They didn't play bad again. Can't really fault the effort. Nabokov was great. This was one game though, to me, it really illustrtated how much offensive talent we really have lost. Even games where we play pretty well like we did these last two games teams like the sharks and ducks that are just plain better, it's gonna be hard to win those games. Bottom line is preds are 2 - 5 and if they don't start winning soon this season may be over before it even gets halfway old. Particually when you consider how well the teams in our division are playing.
