SHARKS WITH ANOTHER VICTORY...

Im telling you... Setoguchi is the man. This team just keeps getting better and better. Boyle, Thornton, Marleau, Setoguchi and everyone else are playing so great with one another

Sean Avery time? His tenure in Dallas is over. I wouldn't trade for him, cuz that means we'd pay that entire salary. But if he is sent to the minors, or flat out release (the front end much more likely than the latter), then the sharks should go after this guy. Why?

A. He's a pretty good player and would come cheap.
B. He would do anything stupid for a while
C. He prolly would prefer a contender

But i wouldn't want the sharks to trade for him. I wouldn't want them to be stuck with that contract and the years. If he goes to the waiver wires, its a 50% price cut, or if flat out release, then we can negotiate whatever AND give nothing up.

thoughts? (P.S. I am a huge Avery fan, i personally believe this guy can save hockey, cuz of his crazy asss antics)

No, his own locker room hates him. The Sharks have incredible chemistry. His positives don't outweigh the negatives. If it was all about hockey for him then i'd do it, but he's got other agendas.

does his own lockerroom hate him? i had no clue... i just thought that was overhype by the media. But my all means, i wouldnt want him at his full price now, but who knows, he can play nice, like TO did when he moved teams, and getting him cheap, he could be worth it... but i agree with the whole chemestry thing, if he is a detriment, then my all means make him stay away.

but someone will get him, and i wouldnt want him going to a West contender

well from what i hear he's going down to the minors and a number of teams don't even want him there. I heard Drew Remenda with ralph and tom and he is pretty disgusted by Avery. Basically, he thinks Avery doesn't play hockey how he can, he basically bought into his own hype about him being an agitator. So he tries to be annoying as possible

I'd have to say no on Avery as well. Purely for chemistry reasons though. On the ice, it would be nice to have another banger.

I gotta say the Sharks are incredible right now. I normally start following the team closely as the playoffs approach, since lets face it, that all that matters.

This year though, I've been watching every game, partly due to my inabilty to watch the Warriors because of my new cable carrier but also because they have been flay out enjoyable to watch.

Saturdays game was tremendous. I seem to enjoy the games that they don't dominate start to finish. It really shows their grit. This year might be special. Normally they don't get into this kind of groove until the end of the regular season and then disappoint in the playoffs. I'm hoping this year is kind of like Detroit's a few years ago where they just steamrolled over everyone all year including right through the playoffs.

The Bay needs some kind of championship.

Yeah sharks are truly having a magical season so far... hopefully it continues on to the stanley cup finals hahaha. It been tough watching the sharks also... because they can never just win it all. They are like the TMAC, get to playoffs consistently but can never just take it all. You always have high standards for the sharks and only accept winning as on option

aw man that'd be so cool if they won it all. I've never been into hockey, but that'd be soooo awesome if the bay area actually won a major championship of a pro sport this decade (sorry AFL saint jose Sabercats, you guys rock, but y'all are in the D-League of football.

truthfully this is the only team we can watch in the bay area... and accept nothing except a win. the sharks are just dominating right now in the nhl. HUGE GAME ON THURSDAY. bring on the redwings... while the top two teams in the western conference go at it. We beat em earlier in the season... and we are gonna keep that nhl record of 52 points so far going.

yeah, i will be tuning in. I havent seen nearly enough sharks games as i'd like (warriors too), but i start tuning into both sports in high gear come January. And I'm watching the Red wings/sharkies for sure.. so is it at the pavilion (is it still called that) or in big D?

Viz, I feel you.

The Sharks have been my saving grace in regards to sports the last few months. :D
I've been quiet on the Warriors thus far this year since I haven't seen a lot of their games and the ones I have were straight depressing. :(

Sharks play tonight at 4:00 PM Pacific against Columbus. Game is listed as viewable on NHL Center Ice. However last game against the Kings was available on Yahoo live, so I'm hoping the same for tonights game.

Game against the Red Wings is in Det. 4:30 PM start on CSN. Doesn't list as being on HD though.
