Sharks again waiting on stars

08:21 AM ET 10.19 | Todd McLellan repeated a point he'd made Monday: San Jose is waiting for key players to turn on their games. "Quite frankly, we're still missing some key people, and I don't mean with injuries. They're dressed, and they're people that we count on. Some of them were very important players for us last year, so they need to find it quick." McLellan is trying to light a fire under the team as it leaves for a six-game trip that begins Friday in New Jersey. While the Sharks coach declined to name names -- "They know who they are" -- there is no shortage of suspects. Nowhere is the Sharks' lack of production more glaring than on the top line of Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Joe Pavelski.

LMAO. The Sharks are always "waiting" for something. Lots of talent but there's something just not in sync.

Is McLellan talking about Heatley and ****? Cuz those guys have been absolute no-shows. May have different sweaters, but still playing Sharks hockey.

You can't say G-o-o-c-h-? That's some smut I'm not aware of. How are you going to talk about the bully on Different Strokes if you can't use the word!?

All they need is to acquire Luongo to complete the picture.

They were cheering when he corralled a cleared puck if that's what you show.

Cause I can't see video here at work.

Same **** but they normally wait for the playoffs to dish it out.

He looks much better in a Nucks uniform.

They are indeed. Schneider will be getting his share of home games this year.

Once they trade Thornton they'll win the Cup...i got a trade..To Toronto: Joe ThorntonTo San Jose: Phaneuf + Reimer + Kessel + 4 1st round draft picks.

Sorry, they don't win the Cup with Phaneuf and Kessel either.

Take them off the equation and you got yourself a deal though.

Every year is the same. McLellan said before the season started that they couldn't do like last year & wait until Feb. Guess what? They're waiting until Feb. This is why they will never win the cup. Suck until Feb, then kill themselves to get a high seed then get swept in the 2nd or 3rd round. Plus Marleau's annual vacation during games.
