The Daily Chum: Is Logan Couture ready to be a No. 1 center?

The Daily Chum: Is Logan Couture ready to be a No. 1 center?

Joe Thornton won’t be the Sharks’ 1C forever ... will Couture take the reigns? Logan Couture has long been billed the future of the San Jose Sharks. With Joe Thornton nearing the end of his most recent deal, will Couture fulfill his destiny to take over as the top line center of the Sharks when Jumbo hangs up the skates? Thornton still has plenty of years left in the tank, but they likely won’t be No. 1 center years. Even now, Thornton has shown some decline in his game and the Sharks need to plan for the future. That’s why talk about John Tavares and Matt Duchene has heated up....

The Daily Chum: Taking stock of Martin Jones the goaltender

The Daily Chum: Taking stock of Martin Jones the goaltender

Let’s find a reasonable bar for the goaltender Goaltenders, much like quarterbacks, get far too much credit when things go right and far too much blame when things go wrong. Martin Jones is no exception in San Jose, where he received something of a coronation over the offseason after the Sharks reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history. Make no mistake, San Jose doesn’t make the Final without strong play from Jones, but they also don’t make the Final without strong play from Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture and ... you get the...

The Daily Chum: Who should play with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski when Joonas Donskoi comes back?

I investigate the weirdly maligned top line. With the Sharks’ middle six forwards sorted out, we can turn our attention to the rest of the lineup. For those not aware, here’s how San Jose suited up Sunday against the New Jersey Devils: Kevin Labanc - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski Mikkel Boedker - Logan Couture - Patrick Marleau Timo Meier - Tomas Hertl - Joel Ward Micheal Haley - Chris Tierney - Melker Karlsson The middle six looks very good right now. The Good, the Boed and the Ugly line is marvelous and the Timo Wardo Hertl Line (it’s a work in progress and I can’t afford to keep...

Sharks vs. Devils: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

Good morning, let’s hockey. The Sharks face the Devils at 9:30 a.m. PT to close out their four-game road trip still looking for their first win of the road swing. New Jersey is coming off its CBA-mandated bye week and San Jose is hoping to come through with a rude awakening after picking up a pair of points in its first three games of what has been an unsatisfying road trip. Logan Couture took warmups according to Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz so I assume he’s in for today’s game against the Devils; or at least, I desperately hope. Martin Jones gets the start in goal. The rest of...

Contest: Name the Patrick Marleau, Mikkel Boedker, Logan Couture line

Win a t-shirt if I like what you come up with Now that it’s well established Patrick Marleau needs to play with Logan Couture and Mikkel Boedker (need proof? Read on) we need a snappy name for the new line. That’s where the fine readers of Fear the Fin come in. I want your creativity to shine here. So head to the comments and come up with a nickname for the new line and I’ll pick my favorite. What’s in it for you? Good question.

Gamethread: Sharks vs. Canucks

The beards are coming! Let’s be honest, the Sharks have some of the best beards in the National Hockey League... and they are pretty good at hockey for added measure. There might be something to the idea of changing their identity while being competitive if you look at the Sharks over the past 5 seasons where they have transitioned from a team led by Jumbo Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau to a team lead by Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns. The situations aren’t exactly the same, but the Sharks have found a way to continuously be competitive while restocking their minors. ...

Quick Bite: Sharks six-game winning streak snapped

Oilers roll into SAP and steal two points The San Jose Sharks (31-17-2) fell to the hands of the Edmonton Oilers (28-15-8) 4-1 on Thursday night at SAP Center in the return of Tomas Hertl to the lineup for the first time in 31 games. Even though the Sharks scored first, they were not able to turn it into a victory (25-8-1 when scoring first). Logan Couture got the Sharks on the board early in the game on a beautiful tic-tac-toe play with assists from Patrick Marleau and Mikkel Boedker. It was Couture’s 16th goal (to go with nine assists) in his 26 career games against the...
