They miss Nabokov.

The guy played 70+ games for them each season in the last decade and was very consistent.

People didn't like his playoff games, but at least he got them there.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Agree with all these reasons. Goaltending is huge. No blue line. Also their stars aren't playing like they want it at all. Couture is the only one on that team who has impressed me, but I don't watch all their games.

Don't mind seeming them struggle at all, so long as it doesn't giftwrap a playoff spot for Chicago. :hehe:

Might they pursue Vokoun?

They should try and deal Niemi and go crawling back to Nabby... he opted out of his KHL deal and is a FA...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

If they fire Todd, I really hope Babcock picks him up in some capacity as an assistant.

The Sharks are in serious trouble though. Not just because they're losing, but they look completely lost. Back to back losses against Toronto and Edmonton.

He would have to clear waivers before he could join the team that signs him...So he's likely not coming until 2011-2012 at the earliest.

Vokoun on a Cup-Contender (well, as of last year) is a scary thought. The guy is phenomenal. I'd HATE to see him get traded to a team we play in the playoffs, because we'd have a tough time with him.

"Western Conference Finals Hangover"

Being satisfied with finally making the Western Conference finals, they spent the rest of the summer partying and celebrating and ended up becoming complacent with their recent success.

Love to see them in the cellar for a couple years.

if New Jersey and San Jose both miss the playoffs this year and Detroit and Pittsburgh both make it then the Wings will lead in active playoff appearance streak 20 to 5 :lol:

I think their lack of goaltending is a huge problem. Nittimaki and Niemi both are nowhere as good as Nobokov. The only reason anybody believes Niemi is good is because he had that ridiculous team in front of him last year. Hes SO overrated.

Im also with Crymson, glad to see the sharks, and choke-show Joe struggle.

I still don't see why Niemi was talked up so much even during the playoffs. His GA went up and his save percentage went down during the playoffs compared to the regular season.

the Sharks have gobs of talent but no heart. bothers me to my very core that they nearly swept us last year. Todd will likely take the fall.

Karma is a biiiaaatch.

A plethora of 5 on 3's sure as hell come back to bite ya in the ass. Curse of Nabokov too potentially.

Posted Image jk I am not sure the Sharks are even capable of having an actual curse.

Being satisfied with finally making the Western Conference finals, they spent the rest of the summer partying and celebrating and ended up becoming complacent with their recent success.

they just didn't do well replacing what they lost in the off season, and because of the awesome weed grown in this area they were just chillin' with my buddies gettin' high all summer.
and every year they get complacent when the playoffs start...even last year... yeah they made it to the conf. final, but they had no answer for a player like big boy buff as he slapped his chubbs all over blake.

I don't think San Jose is stupid enough to pin this on McClellan. But part of me hopes they do, and hopes that no other team wants him so that he can return to being Detroit's defensive coach.
