To the Shark's fans

I would like to say in all seriousness your team has played a HELL of a series. In multiple games you made my team look like an AHL team. Your team has battled hard and deserved to have this over in 4 or 5.

I made some comments earlier in the series on this board and I wanted to let you all know SINCERELY that your team deserves all the respect I can muster.

Never ceases to amaze me how often nice comments from other fans go completely ignored or retorted in a negative fashion.

Be more hospitable people! You know that reputation we as Sharks fans so desperately want? Oh..I guess we are only willing to give our players free passes

Thank you Resmo. Now prepare for battle!

Thanks, but the team hasn't even come close to giving you guys their all throughout this series, especially in game 6. Win or lose, this one is going to leave a bad taste in this Sharks fan's mouth.

You are talking about the Sharks vs the Wings, right? This year? In the Playoffs?

I know that Game 6 is still fresh in your mind but he's right, we have badly outplayed Detroit in some of these games, Game 5 being the most recent example (for 2+ periods anyway). I know it feels like we're down 0-3 but it's 3-3, and that wouldn't be the case against a team like Detroit if we hadn't played some damn good hockey for large portions of this series. Last night was the first (and hopefully last) time I could say that the Sharks didn't show up for a game this series.

And what a TERRIBLE game to not show up for. Unless you subscribe to the idear that the Sharks play better with their backs up against the walls.

I have this bad feeling they ain't gonna close it out Thursday, I just do.

I agree, but you didn't address anything I said. And I don't care what any of the experts say, momentum doesn't mean **** from game to game. We were better in Games 1 and 2, Detroit was better in Games 3 and 4, we were much better in Game 5, and they were much better in Game 6. We've won 3 in a row, and they've won 3 in a row. I know that we're the Sharks and they're the Red Wings, but Game 7 is a clean slate, and 1-6 won't mean jack **** once that puck drops tomorrow night.

Respect appreciated by this Sharks fan and I can wholeheartedly say it's mutual.

What more could we ask for than a 7 game series between 2 of the top 3 teams in the West? I can't WAIT for Thursday and I truly believe the Sharks will advance. Best of luck!

this. It's just one game, if the Sharks can execute for a full game they will advance. Waiting is the worst part though, I feel as if I'm stuck in limbo. I just want see some redemption asap, but not until Thursday sadly...

I won't be surprised if they get blown out. Their confidence has to be shot and they just don't have what it takes to be a champion. They wouldn't be in the spot that they are now if they did.

I don't recall the Sharks playing multiple games against an ECHL team...

im already preparing myself mentally for the crushing blow that being a sharks fan will now mean. to lose after going up 3-0 is ultimate humiliation. and to the red wings and their idiotic bandwagon fans, ugh... life can't get much worse.

Great. Now we have sympathy from an opposing teams fans. Has it come to this?

It's thoughtful and all, but couldn't we just hate each other and shake hands when the Sharks break the Wings?

Nice to hear kind words from Wings fans. Heck, they're a great team. A team you can come to count on year after year. A team with the heart we wish the Sharks had!

In any case, there's too much doom and gloom in Sharks land right now. Likely because we've been here before. I agree with others than momentum doesn't mean **** in game 7. Both teams will be desperate and I would think the Sharks more than the Wings. FTR this is the 2nd worst losing streak this year. The other 3-loss stretches had an OT or SO game. They've always come back though and other than the debacle in January, they've never strung more than 3 in a row. I'm encouraged by that.

I'll be at the tank and my record since January is 8-0. Maybe I'm a good luck charm. It's my birthday too, so I'm counting on them not letting me down.

As a Canucks fan I know the feeling you're going through right now very well. I hope you get to dodge the bullet like we did, you fans have been teased enough.

Good luck.

Oh yeah, Thanks.

We were definitely robbed by the refs in game 5.

We've had sympathy for a while. I remember a lot of sympathy after the Hiller series.
