    Great episode dudes! I have been really impressed by the way DeBoer has handled the lineup. Especially with the early injuries on D. Love seeing Labanc, Meier, Carpenter, Ryan, and Heed as daily players. I think Burns’ struggles have a lot to do with Martin being out. It will be interesting to see whether Ryan or Heed stay in once Martin returns. Mike is right that Hansen has been such a disappointment. He’s a unique player in the lineup, but not fulfilling hos role. They should be scoring. What did you think of the FTF article on going after Rick Nash? He’s having an awful year and might be relatively cheap. I could see it happening later in the year. He could play on the top line and Labanc could join Hertl on the second line.

      DeBoer is doing a good job of giving the young players a chance. Between last year and the first weeks of the season, I am not impressed with Meier. He looks like a decent 4th line winger and penalty killer, not a skill player with 20+ goal potential. Hope I’m wrong and he breaks out any day. The Sharks will be about a .500 time if Burns and Ryan remain paired. I’m ok with that. I say, make it a rebuild year, don’t worry about the playoffs. Oh, and their goaltending has been all over the map. They need some consistency – that’s the one position with the exact same roster as last year. Go Sharks!

        Dell’s 2 losses were not his fault. The top line played poorly tonight against the Isles. Was good to see Hansen had a decent game. Great move on the boards leading to Couture’s second goal. With Boedker struggling, maybe Hansen will get moved up. A line of Hertl-Couture-Hansen could be interesting.

    Not feeling good about this team. 23rd in offense. What good is Labanc going to do on the fourth line? And what is up with Burns, Pavs, and Thornton in the goals department? Not good. I don’t mind losing, but give the kids top-6 roles, please.

    When the puck are y’all gonna have another show to talk about us when we’re actually doing good? Lol I think we should bring up Sorensen to replace carpenter just to see if he can produce a little more secondary scoring. Carpenter hasn’t been bad by any means but I feel like Sorensen has more offensive skills. Love your guy’s show keep up the good work!

    The good news is, the Sharks are so deep at D right now. Their goaltending, PK and even-strength D are top 3 in the league on any given day, statistically speaking.Even with Martin out! It’s amazing how well Heed and Ryan have played. The defense will be severely tested soon, with games against the Ducks, Lightning, and Kings.

    The bad news is, the Sharks are paying tons of money to guys to score goals who aren’t scoring goals. Burns ($8 mil, zero goals), Ward, $4 mil, 0 goals in a manned net), Boedker $4 mil (2 goals). And Meier is definitely not looking like a top-10 draft forward. He reminds me of Mat Nieito – great skater, has so opportunities to score, can’t bury them. I expect DW to ride this group for a while, then make 1 or 2 moves in February to acquire scorers on the rental market.
