So question for all of you.... I know that all the media was saying the Sharks are no longer chokes cause they beat the wings and made it out of the second round.... but my question now is if the sharks get swept in this round... or lose in 5 what do you think the Sharks organization does....

In my mind that are still chokes.. they had a lot of help in the 2nd round and in the conference finals (if they do get swept) obviously still don't have it... Do you resign Nabby, do you start trading away big names, or did they perform well enough to keep them...? Just curious on everyone elses thoughts....


Right now Greiss is the only goaltender they have under contract. Based on the supposed $57.7m cap for next season, they have 6 forwards, 5 defensemen, and 1 goalie with about $21.5m left in cap space. They should be able to fill out their forwards and defense, including keeping Marleau, Pavelski, and Setoguchi, for about $16-17m. That doesn't leave them enough to sign a guy like Nabokov who would want way more than he deserves. But they can go out and sign a goaltender like Theodore or Biron for $2m-$2.5m and not really suffer much if any of a drop in performance. Nabokov is a very good goaltender, but San Jose would be better off using the $6-7m he will likely cost on making sure their skaters are as good or better than they are now and signing a solid goaltender like Theodore, Biron, Turco for less than $2.5m or even perhaps trying to trade for a young guy like Price or Schneider who makes more than $1m as a backup. Better forwards and defense than the current Sharks in front of Price, Theodore, or Biron is probably a better shot at the Cup than this year's Sharks.

Personally, I can't stomach the thought of Hossa, Kane and Quenneville winning the Cup.

I'd have preferred Montreal to any of the other three teams left but they're going to need to score a damned goal at some point.

Really? He's the only reason I'm rooting for Chicago. I want him to win just to spite the people who turned against him.

As for Montreal, I'd like them to make it to the Final, but I don't want a Canadian team to win it all. But with the way they're playing, they'll do neither.

1) The Shark's themselves have no control over who becomes a fan of their team.
2)A small sample size of fan's does not warrant generalizations
3)You act as if no one on the Wing's Roster has never dived. A few years ago Franzen was pretty bad.
4) A great deal of the hostility you speak of can also be said for you in the Game Chats, as you constantly asked if Sharksfan was happy and proud of a team of divers, as if he has any control over that.

lol @ the Negs. I can tell some people are still bitter


^^^^Trying too hard. Transparent, anyone?

Why would any Red Wings fan want Hossa to win a Cup? He tanked it last year in the finals and cost us one. He's bolted from team to team in search of a Cup winning team, but really wants to just go along for the ride. He cursed the Pens, the Wings, and now the Hawks?

Sorry, his performance last year still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth - he can go Cup-less as far as I'm concerned. If he wanted one so bad, he should have shown up when it really counted....
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

I really want Montreal to get their heads together and win. I want San Jose to be destroyed, and Philly to get their egotistical asses handed to them. I'm not really fond of the idea of Chicago winning, either. I hold out hope that Montreal can get it back together and win it.

Whatever... all fan bases have some sort of Posted Image to them. Sharks fans are less informed, yes I will grant that. San Jose people don't even really care about having a team there. Chicago fans are plugeroos but are passionate (when they are winning) so that brings it back to being plugs. I am personally not LOL'ing or pissed the Sharks are losing. Its 2-0 and not done yet, kind of. Toews is a great Captain, probably one of the better leaders in the league but again because of sheer principle I cannot root for those **** cheeseburgers. So either way why care whats happening to Sharks and the Hawks have no real road block in the way to the Cup....Other than Hossa.


Really Shark fans don't care about the team? Is that why Shark fans fill up the arena 17 out of the 18 years? Look at the Oakland A's, 10,000 fans show up at their games. EVEN their minor league team is getting more fans than the Oakland A's. Personally, I wasn't that pissed that we lost game 2. The thing that made me pissed is how Versus always talked about the hawks. In game 2 first intermission 1. lets interview Ladd. 2. Lets talk about how the hawks are soo good. 3. Lets talk about how they have changed since last year. 4. Lets talk about how the Hawks can do even better in the second.5. Back to the game. Hawks= new pens. And why the eff is Eddie O. on versus in the series, when he works for the damn hawks.

And if the Sharks lose the series, i'm going for the flyers. I would rather root for Pronger rather than that s*** head carrot top Brian Campbell.

Chicago apparently is taking over for the Wings in the penalty department. SJ just scored on a 5 on 3 they got because the Hawks were playing hockey. *gasp* Sharks have had a disproportionate amount of 5 on 3s. They're not that good. They're not forcing teams to take penalties. What's the deal?
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Hossa with another bucket of fail.

Standing in front of the net, the rebound comes to him while Nabokov is down and out. He miss handles the puck and SJ blocks his chance.


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

Mtl vs san jose too :lol:
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.
