Mike and Doug celebrate the two resounding wins against Los Angeles and Calgary.  Although there’s plenty of hockey yet to be played, the Dudes try to put their fingers on what led to the huge goal outburst and convincing wins in the past week, and how the Sharks can keep it going.  Also, trivia is back in a slightly different form, go ahead and play along while you’re listening.

  1. Great episode, guys! I stoked that our boys pulled out two ENORMOUS wins. Let’s hope they can keep it going tomorrow night against The Ducks! BTW… I posted a link to this podcast on my fb page. 🙂

    Torrey Mitchell was down in Woosta for a bit too, no?

    On thing is clear, TMac trusts Jay Leach a lot more than he did Jason Demers. Which is interesting as Leach, Huskins, and Demers all have similar advanced metrics, with the only difference being a) Demers has excelled on the PP, and b) Leach has played with far worse teammates than the other two yet has similar results.

    Of course, small sample size issues apply, but I would bet that all three are used down the stretch similar to how Ferriero/Staubitz/McGinn are being used now. Team needs an offensive spark? In comes McGinn and Demers/Huskins. Needs Big bodies against big forwards? Staubitz with Huskins/Leach. And so on as the situation dictates.

    And I agree that unless there is a long term injury to Pavs or Manny, Couture will not see much more significant time with the big club this year. Next year, though, I fully expect to see Couture/McGinn/Ferriero up full time as a strong offensive 3rd line.

      Yup, good call on Mitchell. The thing about Leach v. Demers is Leach is half the price, so that has to be factored into the argument as well.
