07:18 AM ET 04.30 | For years, the Sharks have been considered either Joe Thornton's team or Patrick Marleau's team, but times are changing. Logan Couture has become the Sharks go-to guy at both ends of the ice. Consider his play in the third period of San Jose's 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars one week ago that secured a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs that begin Wednesday in Vancouver. Couture drilled a 17-foot wrist shot for the game-winning goal, then dropped to the ice with two seconds left to block a Ryan Garbutt slap shot that threatened San Jose's slim lead. ... With the departure of Ryane Clowe, there's a vacancy for a Sharks assistant captain. Couture would have to be considered a front-runner for the role, though McLellan declined to tip his hand.

I hate it, but I think Vancouver gets to the West final. Not sure after that, but I don't think this will be a repeat performance of last year.

They for sure got the one team in the first round that is as soft as they are.

SJ in 6...
