The Sharks are still undefeated with a tough win against Ottawa, but the Hertl controversy continues, with Joe Thornton stepping in.
Podcast: Play in new window
Are you guys shitting me? Ride the hot hand? This is Scott Hannan, no? Brad Stuart was, and most likely is, a stalwart on this team that would be in most teams top-4. Hannan, dear to my heart he may be, is 6-7 on every team. First of all, sample size? Second, what hot hand? Third, Stuart is a substantially more competent hockey player. How about we play our best players and see what our team can do and stop over thinking everything.
Irwin is the biggest issue on the blue line right now, mostly because the Boyle Irwin pair looks terrible and gives up a ton of scoring chances against. When Stewart is back, I wouldn’t mind seeing:
Please explain why this is the worst idea ever.
Hey I just wanted to drop in to say I love the podcast! Keep ‘em coming!
Just so you know, I am expecting you to keep putting out two a week now…. You can’t raise the bar there and then slack off again.
I hope boyle will be ok! =(
Me too. Fuck Lapierre. Glad we got the win tonight but the hit on Dan Boyle puts a big damper on the victory.
Id say suspend him for the rest of the season so that he learns something.. Its not the first time he does shit like this..
Remember the hit on Nichol a while ago?
So, just for my own sanity I’m not gonna wade too deep into the hit or any potential and deserved punishment for lappie…
I will say this though. I was really proud of the boys last night being able to push through and absolutely stick it to the Blues. That’s how you respond!
I remember not too long ago another hit, bye a player Not-To-Be-Named… (see my denial there…), on Michalek in the PO’s. The Sharks had no response, no fire, no motivation to hit back where it counted. We lost that series to Edmonton after being up 2-0. Everything changed after that hit…
To see the Sharks go out and drop a 6 spot on the 2nd best team in the west so far was a great response to an ugly incident. Good to see they can’t be pushed around anymore.
great stuff! after a stressful day at work, you are a great listen and a totally fun blend of colorful anecdotes, farm animal sounds, and good times! more cowbell!
can’t wait to hear you rage against Maximus Asshollius Pierre. what a numbnut dirtbag.
Plus, any podcast starting out with a Cake song is worth its salt
Here we go again with the “guess-the-suspension” game. Maxim Lapierre is a repeat offender and the play resulted in an injury. I’m guessing 7 games. Unlike Kaleta, Lapierre didn’t appear to target the head. (Not that it matters to Boyle, who suffered a head injury nonetheless.)
I dont think that he counts as a repeat offender under the current CBA.
Think everything is forgotten after 18 months.

Should the Sharks sign Scott Gomez?
