The Sharks will play three games against the other top prospects in their division. The first game is...

2021-22 Nashville Predators Preview: Rebuilding on the fly

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports It’s been many years since the San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators have met in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so the animosity between the two teams is nearly non-existent. After a season apart, the two teams will meet three times this regular season. Where they left off At the trade deadline, the Predators weren’t really buyers and they weren’t really sellers. The team made a single trade, acquiring veteran defenseman Erik Gudbranson from the Ottawa Senators for prospect Brandon Fortunato and a 2023 seventh-round pick. The...

2021-22 Winnipeg Jets Preview: Jets add depth, defense in off-season

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports The Jets are taking an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach. The Winnipeg Jets are always a fun matchup for the San Jose Sharks, if only because we get to hear a few West Side Story puns along with our hockey. The NHL and Canada’s COVID rules meant the two teams never met last season, but they’ll see each other this season if all goes well. Of course, for Sharks fans, this may not be the game to circle on your calendar. The Jets are a much better-built team than the Sharks and are expected to be in the playoffs when the...

2021-22 St. Louis Blues Preview: Another underwhelming season?

Jeff Le-USA TODAY Sports Sharks fans have their fingers crossed for another less than stellar run from the Blues. If you’re like us, the St. Louis Blues are a team you’ve grown to view as an enemy. Yes, I still have not let go of the pain and suffering we endured as Sharks fans during the 2019 Western Conference Final. I am sure I am not alone in actively rooting against the St. Louis Blues still to this day. Last season was not the best for our enemies in Missouri. While they made it to the playoffs, they fell short early. Instead of taking the off-season to...

San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and Head Coach Bob Boughner have jointly announced that John Maclean has been hired as an assistant coach for the 2021-22 season. Bob Boughner said of the hiring, “John’s experience speaks for itself, and he checks a lot of the boxes we were hoping to fill with this role — He has won the Stanley Cup as a player and a coach and knows how to relate to today’s player. In doing our diligence for this role, I spoke with many...

2021-22 Dallas Stars Preview: Bright future, crowded crease

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ From Stanley Cup runner-ups to missing the playoffs, the Stars are looking for consistency. Long gone are the days of when “Dallas Sucks” chants would rain down from the rafters of the SAP Center ever since the Dallas Stars moved out of the Pacific Division, with the once-heated rivalry between the San Jose Sharks and the Stars having gone dormant. The Stars only missed the playoffs by four points thanks to an extremely hot Nashville Predators team, but make no mistake about it, this is still a very solid team. Back in the proper Central...

2021-22 Philadelphia Flyers Preview: Welcome to the Martin Jones experience

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports Carter Hart, you’re the Flyers’ only hope. I’ve long been alone in feeling there are similarities between the Philadelphia Flyers and the San Jose Sharks, but a new goaltender, paired with a new-look defense might finally convince some folks that Philadelphia is doomed to repeat the errors of Sharks teams past. Yes, the Flyers will now get the joy of the Martin Jones Experience™ — perhaps only marginally better than the last two years of Brian Elliott — fully embracing the Sharks’ leftovers. It’s just one of the several...

Sorenson’s time in San Jose was limited, considering his pending free agent status this off-season and Doug Wilon’s “reset” narrative, so it comes as little surprise that Sorenson has decided to return to Sweden for this next stage in his hockey career.

2021-22 Calgary Flames Preview: Free agency flame out

Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports With just small moves and loss of Mark Giordano, the Flames failed to improve in the off-season. After a season-long break from one another, the San Jose Sharks and Calgary Flames are back to being Pacific Division rivals. For the Flames, it’s two steps forward and one step back. They missed the playoffs this past season after making it in the previous two. No one knows what to expect from the Flames this season. What happens will largely fall on the shoulders of stars like Johnny Gaudreau, Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan because Calgary...

2021-22 Los Angeles Kings Preview: Weak division could open door to playoffs

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports While the rivalry between the Bay Area and Los Angeles is long and storied, there’s been little dispute lately between the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks. Both teams have missed the playoffs for the last few seasons, and that means there’s no seven-game series to stoke the fires of the California rivalry. Perhaps that will change this year. The two teams don’t play their first game until January 21, 2022, and one or both of them may be in the playoff hunt at that time. Here’s to hoping ... Where they left off For the last...
