If and when this season starts, of course they have a chance. All teams have a chance. Its the ones that stay healthy, get on a roll at the right time and dont get bounced out by stupid stanchions that win.
The Sharks just got two new defense oriented coachs, the PK will be better then the previous sludge of two years. They could really use a new 3rd line center but no team is perfect, the grass is not greener.
