Are the Sharks contenders or pretenders?

Everyone always call the Sharks paper champions, a regular season team, or playoffs chokers. Do you think this is the year they prove everyone wrong?

Yeah, we know seven games into the season the answer to this question. We knew it before the season started. We knew it the past seven years. lol

What exactly do you think you will get when you come into the Sharks board with this troll-ish question?

Not everyone has exactly the same opinion, so they can't prove everyone wrong.

I'm just relieved he made this thread here and not on the general boards. I cringe whenever I see a Sharks-related thread title on the general boards especially if it's a positive thread title. It just invites "chokers LOL" or "It's the regular season. We know what will happen in the playoffs with these losers".

This is true but the premise of this thread is that everyone knows that the Sharks are paper champions, regular season team, and playoff chokers. Thus, the answer to this question is simple. No because they are paper champions, regular season team, and playoff chokers. If everyone knows that, they should know they aren't contenders. Pretty freakin' easy if you ask me. I'm glad we got that out of the way...now I can just enjoy watching hockey with no expectations.

Pretenders. St. Louis and other tight checking teams will destroy them again like last year.

Burnzie needs to come back. I'll say contenders. Much better than last year's team.

we are pretenders guys, i haven't seen Marleau for the last 3 games Pavs is washed up his goal/point scoring streak is over and he can't get goals in the shootout any more, and our bottom 6 are just x's that we play so they can lose the puck in the offensive end with no shots on goal we all know were pretendters

Sharks were kissed with some Bay mojo when the first game of the season was on NFC Championship Sunday.

Contenders.
