08:26 AM ET 04.08 | San Jose picked up a point Sunday, which isn't to say Todd McLellan was thrilled -- even after a 14-point, seven-game homestand. "I didn't like our game basically the whole night. It was great that we were able to score four [Sunday], but we had a lot of key people -- high end, high minute players -- that really didn't perform very well," the coach said. No names were mentioned, but his list did not include Raffi Torres, the agitating left wing acquired at the trade deadline who led both teams with seven hits and was welcomed in his San Jose debut with a mixed chorus of cheers and boos. "I thought Raffi was fine," McLellan said of Torres, who also picked up two assists.

Problem is that neither the Sharks nor their fans are prepared to having a tough guy with balls who plays on the edge going into the playoffs. Raffi Torres is just too much for this sedate crowd and team.

He is well overdue for a suspension anyways , so soon they will not have to seem him for a while.

Too much testicular fortitude for that crowd. They're not used to it.
