Heart and desire have little to do with the coach. What i don't like is our game plan and McLellan not holding the players accountable by slashing ice-time, or heck, calling them out by calling a TO and chewing them out or echo what Boyle said about half the team taking a free ride.

Your first paragraph is false. It's not heart that is the issue. Greiss's play tonight is exactly how the Sharks have been playing. Trying hard but overcomitting on everything and ending up out of position.

oh and I am just going to reiterate what I said earlier this season. TM has no control over the "stars" on this team.

Can anyone find out what the Sharks record is without Demers?

He really isn't much of a difference maker. He needs to stay in Worcester and get some playoff experience + learn defence for once.

It appears that neither of our teams wants the #1 seed. Sharks and Hawks are not playing at the top of their game since the Olympics. Dallas is a tough team and has giving us fits also. Surprised they did not do better this year.

That choked away a shot in the Conference Finals.

I agree the team is lacking heart right now. But up until this point, they hadn't been embarrassed since the Blackhawk Down game. Even then it took the team about three weeks to recover. If that happens again, they'd recover in time for the playoffs but they'd have absolutely no momentum going into it.

If I'm McLellan, I ignore them completely in house. If I'm asked about them by the media, open up and let loose. If I'm McLellan, I wash my hands of this and minimize his responsibility on this team from now on.

I never once blamed McLellan. I think he has prepared these guys the best he can. I cannot beleive people are so blind to the fact that this team is not willing to give what it takes to win in the playoffs.

The only players I have hopefor in the playoffs are Boyle, Nichol, Mitchell and Malhotra.

I beg to differ. I noticed the Sharks seem to lose more games that he's not involved in than games he is

Sharks are like 0-10 when you post in GDTs. Maybe don't post?

Losing in the conference finals when you're there for the first time ever is different than choking in first and second round year after year. I will argue they got beat by a better Flames team.

Nevermind, I did the research myself. The Sharks are 30-9-6 with Demers in the lineup. That means the Sharks are 13-6-4 without him. It looks a lot better with him in the lineup...

Demers provides the Sharks with something the desperately need... a second defenseman that can MOVE THE PUCK UP THE ICE. Blake, Leach, Huskins, Wallin, Murray... they can't skate the puck up the ice like Boyle and Demers can. The Sharks need 2 mobile defensemen, just like last year with Boyle and Ehrhoff...

As well as an addition point man on the PP...
