someone say something so i can make a counterargument, theyve got the best coaching and players so bring it


"Something."


no-show joe isnt much on offense, but lets face it, hes a commodity on defense and special teams. The sharks are about twice as likely to give up a ppg when 19 is in the box


Ok slapshot. This man love with with "19" isn't going to do much for you.

Let's look at some facts. Facts are fun, mostly because I don't anticipate you posting them, nor refuting mine.

Regular season dominance doesn't do much for you. Let's just say that they win the President's Trophy (overtaking Boston), shall we? Only 5 PT winners since 1990 have actually won the Cup.

You can conveniently overlook the fact that the Western Conference is absolutely loaded. The Eastern Conference is full of under-achievers, and let's face it, anyone can come out of that Conference from 1 thru 8. Their path to the finals is more difficult, wouldn't you say?

The Sharks will have to contend with a pesky little team from Detroit that happened to win the Stanley Cup last year.

They are hardly the best on either side of the puck as far as Special Teams is concerned.

And honestly, you need to, um, "bring it." You have said nothing so far besides the point that Joe Thornton is a no show on offense, and you're right. His amazing 12 goals really knocks me off my feet. So...what...they have a good penalty kill WITH Thornton? Even though they aren't tops in the NHL?


The Sharks may have been unsuccessful in the playoffs before, but with additions of 4 stanley cup winners, they're set to go. As for the red wings, the loss in detroit was their 3rd road game in 4 days. At home, they beat the red wings despite 5 injured starters. And the Flames? please. Kipursoff is way too inconsistent and we all know how talented iginla is in postseason choking (almost as good as roethlisberger tee hee). Lets face it, they have the best first and second lines, 3 solid defensive pairings, and a should-be all-star in Evgeni Nabokov.
Besides, who's gonna stop them? Boston relies to much on big players who dont always show up. Washington has virtually no goalie, when it all comes down to it, they should just give San Jose the cup now!
