The Sharks slide continues, as they barely beat Philly, but lose to the Sabres and Blues. Mike and Doug try not to panic, and gauge what the Sharks need to do in order to make the playoffs.
Podcast: Play in new window
In my opinion this is the end of the sharks being a powerhouse team. I think they will still make the playoffs this year and the one after that, but then Boyle gets old and we fall out of the playoffs. I still believe they can win the cup because anything can happen in the playoffs.
I actually like the fact that your podcast is short and sweet. It’s a rundown of the week in terms of Sharks and NHL news and it’s a good companion when I’m doing something else. You guys cover a lot of stuff and it makes the podcast just fly by because it feels like the right time of a show.
I do disagree about the Mareki vs. Wyshynski trade deadline show. I was highly entertained by the Rick Nash argument and that’s a podcast that zips by too.
However, there is a podcast (The Puck Podcast) I like a great deal, but they are 2.5 hours long. This year it has felt a little bloated (And maybe finding other hockey podcasts have soured my mood on this podcast a great deal, but I still like it). You only have so many hours in a day and there are times when I wonder when am I going to listen to a 2.5 hour show. I never feel that way with your show and I appreciate you guys going at the right length for a podcast like this. Keep up the great work.
Well done with the numerous dick jokes in the last ~2:30.
On the subject of the length of a podcast, you compared the podcast to radio, and I think thats far from the same thing. When you listen to radio its on a specific time that you dont chose, you have to listen to it in one go and cant take any breaks, while a podcast is something you can listen to whenever you want. When you have the time to listen to it, for example on your way to work, when you are at work (if thats sutable), when you are washing dishes, cleaning or whenever you GOT THE TIME to listen to it. Also you can press pause and take a break if something comes up in the middle of the show.
I would say that there is no limit to how long a podcast should be. The podcast I listen to the most (not hockey related) is a podcast that is 1½ hour long. I rarley think that that is to long. It all comes down to the content of the podcast. If its intresting, what its about, how much of an interaction it is with the listener and so on.
If you want to make a longer podcast, just find more intresting stuff to talk about.
Dudes – completely agree on Galiardi. That game could have gone on another three periods and the Sharks never would have gotten through the neutral zone. To not shake things up because they were worried about the 4th line matchup is absurd.
I don’t like Vandemeer at forward anyway, and Colin White has been atrocious lately on D. If they’re so hell bent on playing Vandemeer, let him take White’s spot on the back end.
If they lose tonight I’m going to be catatonic.
I also thought back to Galiardi’s quote, where he said that Doug Wilson told him he’d be treated with much more respect in SJ, and he was looking forward to that.
Two minutes of ice time in his third game as a Shark… greaaaaaaat.
So if the trade deadline were to be next weekend, given the last three weeks of games, would we be sellers?
If we were buyers, I’d like to see them target that McGinn kid in Colorado.
No I think DW would wisely rather make any major changes in the off season.
I wonder if there is a disagreement between Mac and DW. How can we explain DW trading McGinn for 2 players, only to have Mac bench 1 of them. So basically, the trade was McGinn for Winnick. Didn’t like the trade when it happened. Really don’t like it now.
Winnick has been a great pickup but obviously not worth Jamie McGinn alone.
I think it does need to be said that Galliardi coud be injured.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
Should the Sharks sign Scott Gomez?
