He is way too good to be wasted on the 3rd line.

BTW couture's goal was set up by desjardins no? bottom 6 scoring?
Or at least have Gomez center Havlat.

What a horrible bounce off the boards. I guess our luck has ran out.

I'm a huge fan of Clowe but I just think its time to demote him to the 4th line. His play lately has been a joke. Every pass/shot has been into an opponents skate resulting in a turn over leading to a potential goal. It's horribad

Maybe even replace Clowe with one of Galiardi, Wingels, Sheppard, or Gomez on the second line. Cut his minutes and PP time until he learns that his poor play isn't tolerated.

This team is supposed to be all about accountability. Well let's see some of it.

Handzus as 7th.

And please trade Clowe before he completely loses his trade value.


have always loved the guy and his fire that he brings but its time to go, especially since its a contract year for him and you would think he would be stepping up hard.

I hope Clowe is just saving himself for the playoffs, if we make it, of course. Clowe has been the most disappointing Shark the past two years.

Whoever mentioned practice might be onto something. In Tmac's comments recently he basically said they aren't practicing in favor of resting. Now maybe that's a coded way of saying a lot of people on the team are sick, but he also said they would do more practice if the need arose. I'd say it has arisen. Too much indecision on the puck, and execution is just off.

When Thornton is not putting pucks on open players' sticks, it makes you wonder. Or was it just because it was irwin and not boyle?

Im also convinced the recent poor play by the sharks has been caused by me changing my computer wallpaper from a sharks picture to a picture of tina fey posing with the Stanley Cup. Ill change it tomorrow. No worries

I just worry the whole thing about this team is if the top 2 lines don't do anything, the scoring will be very low.
So true. To add, I think the Havlat and Handzus test has passed and Havlat needs to get back on the 2nd line. I'd like to see Gomez alongside Havlat and Couture but we know that will not occur. To add, i'm not sure how much we can fix the third and fourth lines as, other than Wingels, and Desi as well, their is not much at all to work with. Sheppard still needs to some time after his lengthy time out so, he may yet turn out. But after that.........nothing much. I thought Burish was brought here to bring some life to the fourth line. Well, nothing much, yet. And with Clowe; if they are going to move him, they may have to do so soon as with the way he is playing, his value is devaluating more and more as the season goes on.

Clowe is brutal. I would be perfectly happy if we could find some sucker to take him off our hands. I like his grit and the fact that he stands up for the team but he is hurting the team more than he is helping them.

My biggest worry is that DW is just gonna keep Clowe and Murray on the team for the entire year. This team lacks any sort of scoring depth. The bottom 6, along with every defenseman except for Boyle and Irwin, have yet to score a goal.

Team looks horrible, and I don't know if Burns is really gonna fix it. How about a couple bottom 6 forwards that can score please.
I heard that they are talking extension W Slowe

Yeah. I was.

Friends needed a player for their GURPS game and I obliged and made plans on Saturday to join them; just didn't expect it to be on Monday. I also studied for midterms with them.

While I am indeed pissed about this loss I'm not gonna worry too much about it yet. We didn't have Boyle and they only tied it because of a bad unlucky bounce. Our powerplay was getting lots of good chances but I think if we had Boyle there instead of Demers I think we would have gotten at least one goal on the PP. Havlat is playing well and getting lots of good chances, same with Gomez. I noticed more of a jump in Handzus' step so hopefully he starts getting on the scoreboard. Also I think we took way too many penalties (Pavelski's delay of game was a **** call I know) and its hard to generate a consistent attack when you're on the PK for half of the game. Besides I think once we have Burns back our team will be a lot better and he can definitely help spark our offense.

I can understand TMac giving Clowe ice time, because Clowe has a long history of performing; there is some sense in giving Clowe time to work out of his slump, especially when there are not many other options. I can also understand TMac prematurely giving Shepard 2nd-line ice time, because he's a talented player at his core. Rewarding Desjardins with increased duties is also acceptable, because his effort and drive has been visibly clear on the ice.

But what has Handzus done to justify a roster spot, much less top-9 minutes? He was absolutely atrocious last year, and has been only slightly better this year. His underlying statistics look terrible...

Murray is also slightly puzzling. Yes, he has a history of high performance, but the team has PLENTY of options to replace him.

The other scary thing is, that the first line wasn't exactly productive this game. Not just on the scoreboard; I didn't think they were generating chances.

Hypothetical lineup:

Marleau-Thornton-Wingels
Clowe-Couture-Havlat
Galiardi-Gomez-Pavelski
Shepard-Desjardins-Burish

Boyle-Stuart
Vlasic-Burns/Demers
Demers/Irwin-Braun
