The Sharks have managed to stay great a home, and have at the time of recording played themselves into the #5 seed.  But the Dudes have no illusions- there are plenty of good teams around, the Kings among them.  It could come down to the last day of the season as far as seeding goes, but barring a late collapse, the Sharks will be playing in the second season.

    Just continuting the discussion where there was a slight comparison to Quick with Neimi…

    At the end of the 2011-12 season:

    Quick ended it with a .929 SV% and a 1.95 GAA…

    As of this point Neemo had a .927 SV% and a 2.10 GAA…

    After 82 games Quick had 10 SO’s, 35 wins, 133 GA, and 1730 saves.

    As of 42 games Neemo has 4 SO’s, 23 wins, 84 GA, and 1061 saves.. (that is #1 in the NHL in saves btw)

    If my math is correct then Neemo would be on a pace for 44 wins, 164 GA, and over 2000 saves…

    And as Doug said Neemo is in the top 5 of all main goaltender stats as of now.

    So all that to say, stats wise, I think the comparison of Quick in 2011-12 and Neemo in 2013 is FAIR.

    Quick obvisouly had more shutouts and a little better GAA. I think most people would agree though that Quick was slightly better last year than Neimi has been this year… but my point is that I don’t think there is any reason that Neimi cannot steal games in the PO’s and be the kind of elite goaltender that can propel his team to a deep run.

    I dount he’ll get any consideration for the Vezina unless he somehow get a couple more SO’s in the last 4 games. I still think though that right now Neimi has put in the single best season of his career and is the backbone and clear MVP of the 2013 Sharks season.

    Lets hope he can stay hot through the playoffs!

    Still looking to trade away some mystery puck(s)?
