Inevitable that after a rosy podcast, the Sharks get thoroughly outplayed by the Wild. Good news: 1) Jones is back in form, he just needed rest. 2) The roster was without three starters. Sharks must get their top line & pp going, plus start Dell / rest Jones more often. Recently in the Merc PDB pointed out that the top line LW doesn’t need to be a sniper, but rather someone with offensive skill and a willingness to dig out pucks. I do expect to see Hansen start then if he is ever admitted to the US.

If you were Vegas looking at the Sharks expansion draft options, would you select Dell?
Love the Sharks, but just don’t see them as a dangerous playoff team. Low scoring, poor pp, and slow. Vs the Preds, Hawks, and Wild the roster looked a step behind. I liked Hertl on the top line last year. I know they want strength down the middle, but Hansen doesn’t score as often.
