Now that the NHL season is completely over, with the Blackhawks winning the Cup, Mike and Doug talk about the series, and the challenges facing the Hawks and the cap next year.  Rob Blake will make final what we heard last week- that he will be retiring from the Sharks.  Mike and Doug talk about what that means for the defense, and process other rumors and speculation involving free agents.

    No redeeming Red Wings fans? Blasphemy! What about this guy? Or this guy? Shame on you dudes. Cameron and Uncle Joey will be boycotting your podcasts from now on.

    Word on the street is that Blake is trying to land a Mike Ricci-type job with the Sharks. If not, he’s taking the family back to LA.

    That quote from Jamison (about Nabby) was made on April 22nd; when the Sharks had their skates knee-deep in Colorado booty.

    If you read a bit farther down in the same SharksPage post, you’d see a truer assessment of Nabokov’s play:

    “If I compared (Nabokov) to Niemi, who has been better in this series first two games. The goals you score on Niemi, the way he plays, the way Michael Leighton plays, you can anticipate the kind of goals he is going to give up, they look the same.

    “The way Evgeni Nabokov plays, you are never sure what kind of goal is going to beat him. He doesn’t play by today’s standards, that real basic, let the puck hit you style… He is a little bit of a throw back, so there are some inconsistencies in his approach to each shot, all of a sudden one sneaks in. From that stand point, he is a little bit unsettling to me when I watch him. He can be great, but you can be one puck away from something very unusual happening, it happens quite often with him.” – Darren Eliot

    Jamison’s either a very good talking head or he’s not paying attention at the games. I’m banking on the former.
