Sharks defense and goaltending has been the key the entire season up to 4 games ago, offense has been the weak link the entire season.
Sharks even after this rough stretch have only allowed 2.44 goals against, but have only scored at a 2.88 goals pace (not playoff calibre).
The defense and goaltending might be in a funk right now, but that doesn't mean it needs to be fixed badly. The oofense on the other hand has been in a funk basically the entire season. I don't know or have the ability right now to look it up but I wouldn't be suprised to see that the sharks have 10 or less 4+ goal games.
I am fine with getting Nash. Clowe+ is fine but no Pavs or Cooter.
I cant defend Nemo at all for his bad play. We can just hope that he is in a slump and comes out of it.
Also, not sure what Nitty's situation is. I know he is in Syracuse but can we get him back up here? Or will he need to go through waivers if we end up doing that.
Nemo just needs to be sat for a little while. Give him some rest and let him come back after the road trip is over and he should be refreshed. As for Niittymaki, it would require re-entry waivers for him to return. After the way he was acting up until the assignment, I don't think he is welcome in San Jose anymore.
