i'm pretty sure they wont make it and i'm not jumping on any other wagon. its being realistic. he'll, i'd rather they didnt make it cuz we all know the outcome of that trip anyway. it is exceptionally obvious what this team has to offer and it's not enough for a deep playoff run. end it early, maybe learn something from a missed post season. maybe get the mental cobwebs out their foreheads.

In a strange way... i'm actually hoping that's the case.

But Dallas is a division opponent, and the Sharks need those points more than any. So now would not be the time to shelter players.

Thornton deserved a star in this game more than Marleau.

Yep, this is serious. Maybe they're waiting for Murray to be 100% before giving him opposing teams' 1st line assignments?

And Vlasic's offense might just be an overall Sharks issue - no offense at all. I'd love to see if Demers could step up with Boyle, but that's probably a recipe for disaster in other pairs.

Pavelski's was weak, but Mitchells was actually pretty solid, he had Lethonen leaning the other way. My point is simple, how many games do we lose and say the other teams goalie stole the game for them? A lot...How many games has Niemi stolen for SJ? 0. Am i saying he is responsible for all the sharks woes? no..but i think he is one of the biggest problems. he just doesnt come up big in a game and the sharks need him to have a game like Lethonen did tonight. There is always at least that 1 weak goal a game he lets in...<i.e. the Buffalo 1-0 loss>

Coaches shouldn't be gambling like that at key points in a game. IMO, that just shows how unconfident he is. He has no grasp of what to do or who to trust, so he gambles on unknowns and hopes for the best. That doesn't cut it.

Also I mentioned this earlier, but not only was the shootout personnel bad, the order was a head-scratcher as well.

Plenty of things to blame in this game before TMac.

Starting with blowing two leads in the 3rd period. The power play in the OT was awful although I would blame TMac for not putting Burns out there.

2nd Dallas goal was a joke, clear trip on Boyle that leads to goal. Plenty of other missed calls in the 3rd as well.

Never seen a team as snakebit as the Sharks not only this year, but historically. Can't buy a break.

Garbutt got away with a clear trip there. Murray got picked in OT, which lead to a 1-1 for Eriksson with Niemi. Ref just shrugged it off.

I'm not saying refs are the reason SJ didn't get the 2nd point, but a lot of them need to do their job better.

The sharks' record in 1 goal games has to be nasty.

Put him back with Boyle (who doesn't pass ever) and put Vlasic (who always passes) with Burns.
Deer god, please. The only explanation for keeping Boyle with Pickles is that maybe the coaching staff thinks he'll revert to pre-Vlasic form.

We don't have a great chance to win, therefore we shouldn't even try. Great attitude there. And people like you complain that the Sharks have a bad attitude.

Well, at this point you hope that Burns and Vlasic would get top minutes. Vlasic's offense was good with Burns, and then vanished when he was paired with Boyle.

Sorry guys. Thought my coming back: the shrump would end.

I thought this was the second best game of the year for SJ. (1-0 win vs Flyers recently the best.)

Good game, nail-biting, exciting-edge-of-the-seat-Torrey-with-GOTY-3-ptJoe...etc...
With a lead with 3 minutes left, gotta win.
I'da put Patty in the SO, but you never know with the Rookie.
Oh well, SJ'll win the next 3; you heard it here 1st...

Dan

Niemi tried hard to steal this game...if that last goal gets swept out and inch sooner it's save of the season.

When a team dominates, takes the lead twice, but leaves with a loss i think there are other issues.

Kind of a different circumstance. Wasn't that like the 10th round?

Missed boarding call on Wingels, missed interference call on Moore, I could go on and on but ultimately the blame lies on blowing 2 leads and not converting the PP in OT.

Murray is a black hole on offense. He adds nothing to the table offensively because his shot is too slow to get off his stick and he has no legs to move laterally. Teams can load up on Burns' side of the ice without any fear because they know Murray will just take a slow shot on net. I'm not trying to be down on Murray because he does add physicality and defense, but his game is incredibly one-sided and there's no denying that.

Adding Vlasic on the left will make the point way more dynamic. He may not be an offensive juggernaut, but he can move his feet or look for a pass, something that is out of Murray's skillset. Vlasic is a dead duck with Boyle as his partner, so you might as well put Murray there since he won't be contributing on the attack anyway.
