I can get you a Pronger Anaheim jersey on the cheap.

Start the poll now and check to see who hops back on the bandwagon if they win Thursday. I can't predict my reaction right now because I'm on a combination of alcohol and Nyquil.

So Canada talks **** to a non rival team more than an inner state rival who beat you when you won the President Trophy as an 8th seed? Feel your pain.

All I know is Im on the JR wagon...

Marleau has completly blown chunks in the playoffs, and I will hold him solely responsible for this epic failure.

Talk about a no show...

This will be tough if they lose but I will get over it. I think the Giants collapse when they had a chance to win it all in 2002 was and is worse than this to me. That team eventually turned it around and won it.

This would be pretty bad but having the title in your hands and watching it slip away to me is worse than a 2nd round choke job even when it will be of epic proportions. I'll still be here in the off-season, next season, and down the line. I really don't care what anyone thinks. This is my team just like the Giants are my team and they have been as long as I can remember. I will not let that go because the team isn't good enough. I won't let any amount of awful play or shame take that away from me. It will never happen with me. I wouldn't cheer for them if they choked game 7 like Boston did last year. I will get angry and stay angry for a long time but I will return and continue to suffer until the day I die or win the Cup...whichever comes first. lol

It is the past couple of loses that give me reason to never put someones name on my Jersey. I have been following this team since 92 and not once have I been convinced to wear names like Garpenlov, Irbe, Nolan, Ricci, Friesen, Baker, Cheech, Marleau, Thornton.... the list can go on and on. If the Sharks lose this on Thursday, I will call for someones head, just like I have for years. But I will never ever give up on the dream. The crest is the only thing that matters.

****. I need a drink.

I'm also in the LA/OC area these days, and I gotta tell ya.
I don't even know any "crazy" Ducks fan down here, but just knowing that they've already won a Cup is enough pain. Ha Ha Ha....... Ha...... ToT

Well, anyway.
Many of us are undoubtedly frustrated beyond limit, but come on, people!
It's only a game of hockey.

Winning and losing is an integral part of any sport, and if losing (yes perennially) is that difficult to take, then maybe it is a good idea to leave it for a while.

Get a breather and then come back later when the Sharks do their ritual regular season dominance to get your hopes up.

That's what I'm doing with the Niners.

CHEER UP EVERYONE~~~~~
Sharks in Seven, Book It!

All I know is that I will have extremely low interest in next year's regular season.

Here's the thing, I've tried "dialing it back" but it doesn't appear to be something I'm capable of. I'm seriously depressed right now. And yes, it is as pathetic as it sounds. Which is the point. I'm this depressed over a bunch of millionaires playing a kids game. And none of those millionaires know me or give a **** about my well being. The highs that come from supporting this team do not seem to be worth the lows.

This is crazy talk. I've been a sharks since the very beginning and can't even conceive of what it would take for me to give up on them. Buck up – never say die!

The only thing that still saddens me to this day a bit about the Giants is that that particular squad in 2002 did not get to taste the ring.
Just like I'll be sad if Thornton, Marleau, Clowe, & Co. don't get to win one in the Sharks jersey.

I know the feeling. I can't sleep right now because I am so frustrated. After the loss to the Ducks a few years back I was depressed for over a week.

Suck it up and be a true fan. No one team will win it every year, so you should be somewhat prepared for disappointment. It might take 56 years, but the Sharks will put all the pieces together eventually. You just gotta sit tight and buckle up because gonna be a bumpy ride.

I am also upset that the league and the officials of Game 4 gave the game away.

This team is gutless.
If they do...let me know where your seats are...i'll take them over for you!

Spoken like a true Marleau fan... and plain wrong.

Murraya nd Vlasic both played their A's off! Demers was very good, Mitchell played well, Wellwood was very good.

It only takes one or two players playing terribly to ruin a team in the NHL..especially in the playoffs. Oh yeah, Niemi!

Agree that 2002 Giants loss was harder to take b/c they had it in their grasp. I went to game 7 that year and the Giants played as if they had already lost. It was such a bummer sitting in those stands with all those OC fans doing their Rally Monkey cheer.

If the Sharks lose, this team will simply cement it in my mind that they're truly like the Atlanta Braves or St. Louis Blues. Not good enough when it matters.

Did you watch the game?

All 4 lines were beat for 60 minutes. That was one of the most lopsided playoff games the Sharks have ever played. Niemi stopped that game from being 6-1.

I forgot Marleau is so bad he can influence the other three Sharks lines. There is no single scapegoat on this boat of fail. If you truly believe Marleau alone has caused this series to slip away, you are insane.

Vlasic played his tail off into a -2, -1 for Mitchell -2 for Demers -1 for Wellwood.

And these were the guys who played their tails off?

Why would you come back just to get your heart broken again? At least if you go through the regular season, there is SOME bit of happiness, even if it is hollow.
