The Daily Chum: Can San Jose get back to the Stanley Cup Final?

Rank your confidence in the San Jose Sharks It’s extremely difficult to take a step back and evaluate a team during the grind of the season. Thankfully, the bye week offers a unique opportunity to do just that. The Sharks play their 61st game of the season tomorrow night and, with 22 games to go, are in a favorable position in the Pacific. But what’s your confidence level at in San Jose to make another deep postseason run? It took a while, but the injury bug finally bit San Jose this season. Tomas Hertl missed more than half the campaign thanks to another knee ailment and it sounds like...

The Daily Chum: Re-ranking the Sharks top 25 under 25

The Daily Chum: Re-ranking the Sharks top 25 under 25

How have things changed 60 games into the season? Tomas Hertl clocked in at No. 1 when we last ranked the Sharks best players under the age of 25. I don’t expect that to change at this point, but there should be some movement after Kevin Labanc’s amazing rookie campaign and a season that has seen a fair number of first-time call-ups. We’ve also seen one of our top 25 players, Matt Nieto, leave the system. So no time like the bye week to take stock of the system yet again, right? I’ve got another Ranker table set up below for your ranking pleasure. We won’t be doing a post on...

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...

Brent Burns scores twice, Sharks beat Devils

NEWARK, N.J. — The stat line on Brent Burns reveals all one needs to know about the Sharks’ victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday. Burns scored the tying and winning goals, played a game-high 25:46 minutes, took 11 of the Sharks 38 shots and blocked three shots in his end. The extraordinary has become the norm for the NHL’s leading offensive defenseman. Tomas Hertl had an empty-net goal late in the third period. PA Parenteau scored for the Devils and Corey Schneider made 34 stops as New Jersey lost for the eighth time in its past nine home games. Burns wiped out the...
