The Sharks are the Montreal Alouettes of the NHL...

'Nuff said

Maybe they'll only lose 2 games the rest of the season.
Then when they lose 4 games in the playoffs, they'll still have the record having only lost 9 games in regular season + playoffs, beating the Habs.

That would be fitting, and funny.

I seriously doubt they beat our regular season record to be honest.. Something will give.

Are they really THAT much better then the rest of the league like our team was at that time?

No, they likely won't. As it stands they're on pace for just under 10 losses (like 9.8 when you extrapolate it out). I can't comment as to how good SJ is, but it seems like they're statistically dominant.

They've only played 11 road games and are 8-3. The only playoff teams they've beaten on the road so far are Philly and Chicago (7-6 SO and 6-5 not convincing wins) and lost to ANA.

Great start but they have yet to enter into their tough part of the schedule. I have a prediction that FEB will be a tough month for them.

Don't be so foolish, their schedule doesn't take anything away from what they've accomplished(so far). To prove this, just look at the way our habs make the worst teams look so good. They have 100 goals for and 61 goals against. They have been the most dominant team in the league by far.

I'm still not sold on them.

Their schedule thus far has been of mediocre difficulty. Look at some of them teams that have handed them defeat? Pheonix? Nashville? FLORIDA?!

They've played Detroit once and beat them, so have we? We'll see how they do against them this month. They are 1-1 against Anaheim, They beat Philly in early October when Philly couldn't buy a game.. They barely beat the Pens..

They are good, but they are not the same caliber of team the 70s Montreal Canadiens were.

Maintaining this rate for the first quarter of the season is doable, maintaining it for a full 82 games is VERY hard. Will they beat the Habs record from the 70s? Everything is possible, is it probable? I don't think so.

lol these attempts at trying to discredit their record is pretty lame. We have lost to piss poor teams as well, and barely beat piss poor teams. But so what? This is a league now where its not that much of a surprise for the worst team to beat the best team on a given night. I'd bet my house that they won't come near beating the 70's habs, but thats not the point here. The point is they have been very impressive so far.

Maybe you shouldn't be so foolish as to look at GF/GA & W/L records without reviewing their opponents and Home/Away (where they determine line matchups) statistics as well. Strength of schedule is a very important factor in analyzing a teams performance.

Do they have a good record? Hell yes. When looking at their schedule down the road are they likely to keep this pace up? Hell no, its a much more difficult schedule. More road games than home games and games against current playoff teams are on the horizon.

The fact that MTL has played down to their opponents on occasion has nothing to do with this. I'm not saying that MTL has played better than SJ so far this year, they obviously have not. What I am saying is that of the upper echelon playoff teams, SJ has had a relatively soft schedule which means it is likely that their record will come back to earth over the next few months of the season.

Exactly what my point was as well.

I never said MTL was better, but SJ being "far and beyond" the best team in the NHL this year IMO is all smoke & mirrors. They are hot right now. Know who was hot in the first 20 games last year? The Sens.

I wish Montreal would have a similar record, this really look like Sharks year in the NHL.

They will be favorite for the Cup but will they succeed ? Something tell me they won't...

So..?
We didn't have such a difficult calendar so far either..

Like it's been discussed, I feel they're peeking early in the season, they will eventually go through harder times, but they have been playing amazing.

Ive seen about 10 of their game this year.
They really are a solid team all around.
However they have done this in the season before. Untill they can do it un the playoffs, I dont respect them.

Never said they weren't, never said WE we're better.

I don't think people putting them head and shoulders above the Wings is smart either.
