The Sharks have strung together some good wins, including one against the Pacific division leaders, the Los Angeles Kings. The Dudes try and pinpoint what caused the turnaround, and where they go from here.
Podcast: Play in new window
I think Eklund listens to the podcast!! LOL!
He’s calling Seto and a 3rd fit Beauchemin..
Man, I feel bad for Seto. He really does everything the coaches ask of him. He plays physical (more physical than any other Sharks forward, IMO), he backchecks hard, he drives to the net.
But he just can’t put the biscuit in the basket. Then again, Seto and McGinn on one line maybe isn’t so bad. They will be a straight up, shoot and scramble type line. They won’t cycle nearly as well as the top two lines, but they will provide a nice simple chot-centric offensive approach that will contrast nicely with the other forwards. On this type of line, I think a guy like Torrey Mitchell, who isn’t exactly a sniper or a playmaker but has good hands and is more than willing to stick his nose in there, will have some good success.
I kind of hope we don’t trade Seto. Our defense has actually been quite good (top 10 in both GAA and shots allowed, last I checked), with Huskins and Demers playing more like a 2nd pairing than a 3rd pairing. Maybe swap Vlasic and Murray, and let Murray/Wallin beat up on 3rd and 4th liners. But I’m not as convinced as I was a month ago that the Sharks NEED a Dman anymore. I would certainly enjoy one, but these guys are doing a good job of proving they aren’t the weakest line.
Well the sharks defenetly need a top 2 d-man more then the 6-7th forward atm.
We want a cup and not just to be top 10, right?

Would you listen to the Dudes live-broadcasting during an away game?
