Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via The 30-year-old would be an upgrade to either of San Jose’s netminders. If the Sharks are going to make a turnaround quickly, it’s clear that a change needs to happen in net. For the last few seasons, they’ve made it clear that Martin Jones is still their guy, but the 2020 season started to see that change in a post-Pete DeBoer (and perhaps most importantly, a post-Johan Hedberg) era Sharks goal-crease. With more games under his belt, and the beloved Evgeni Nabokov taking over from Hedberg as the goaltending coach, Aaron Dell showed that there might...

It was mediocre coaches like Todd McLellan and Peter DeBoer that slammed the Sharks cup window shut.

Photo by Darcy Finley/NHLI via You think your quarantine has been long? Boughner’s been waiting on a job this whole time. As the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs finally start to draw to a close and free agency just around the corner with an October 9 start date, the future is suddenly a little less nebulous. That lack of certainty has allowed for the Sharks to take their time when it comes to several decisions going forward into what will surely be another strange season, including naming the franchise’s ninth full-time head coach. Interim coach Bob Boughner, who came into the position in...

What is the biggest priority for the Sharks in the offseason?

Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via The Athletic’s Scott Burnside has a few things GM Doug Wilson needs to address to help San Jose get back into the playoffs. The 2019-20 season was a nightmare for the San Jose Sharks.

San Jose sputtered to a 29-36-5 record through 70 games before the league shut down due to the pandemic, and missed the playoffs for just the second time in the past 14 seasons. The Sharks’ first-round pick belongs to the...
