post DOH 258 – Changing It Up

The Dudes video record this podcast (link to follow) but they have tons to talk about, including the Sharks last six games, the Olympic rosters, the Couture injury, and some crazy trades.

The Sharks have gone 3-1 since the last podcast, but the Dudes are somehow glass-half-full about it, since they coughed up third period leads to Colorado and Phoenix, and got crushed in Anaheim.  But they still have the 5th best record in the NHL, and hope springs eternal in the new year.

The Sharks still can’t get any consistency, losing to a bad Nashville team on the road, and barely beating Dallas at home.  But they did beat Minnesota and St. Louis, so the Dudes still don’t know what to think.

post DOH 255 – Unsurprising

After a great homestand, the Sharks go on a terrible road trip, and finish with a loss to the lowly Islanders at home.  Because of the ups and downs of this season already, the Dudes are unsurprised.

The Sharks go 5-0 at home against some very good teams, beating St. Louis, L.A., and Anaheim.  Not all the wins were exactly in the manner the Dudes would have liked, but it’s hard to argue with 10 straight points.

post DOH 253 – Back to Winning

November 25th, 2013, 9:10 pm

Filed under: podcast — Written by Mike

After a bad stretch, the Sharks played the dregs of the Western Conference and righted the ship.  Mike and Doug talk about what happened right for the Sharks to start winning again, what moves (if any) the Sharks might make going forward, and take a quick tour around the NHL.

The Sharks have again fallen to earth after a hot start, losing their last five, two to bad teams.  The Dudes finally realize (or claim to realize) that it’s impossible to predict what will happen with the Sharks, and we won’t know anything until the playoffs start.

post DOH 251 – Boyle Is Back

Dan Boyle is again playing with the Sharks, and scored a goal in his first game back.  The Sharks are picking up points, but not wins, against Pacific Division opponents, and the Dudes examine how bad that is.

Sharks have six points in four games on the road trip, beating two very good teams in Montreal and Ottawa, and only losing the Boston in the heartbreaker.  Unfortunately we won’t be able to record until the weekend at earliest, but I have some questions and comments in easy-to-read bullet form.

  • Does anyone still think Burns has a tooth issue?  I’m surprised the ‘c’ word hasn’t been thrown about more.  He does have a concussion history, so this holdout does worry me.
  • Nothing like necessity to cure bad feelings.  With Burns, Boyle, Nieto, Torres, and Burish out, I think we could see Havlat tonight.
  • Mostly because Mike Brown is about exactly what I thought.  That mustache is sweet though.
  • I’m clearly getting overconfident, as I look at the next ten game stretch (LAK, PHO, BUF, VAN, WIN, CGY, VAN, EDM, CHI, TBY) and think the Sharks should win nine of them.  OK eight.
  • Stalock, while fun to watch, looks shakier than Niemi.  He needs to play more.  I would love to see him in three or four of the next ten.  What’s the harm in playing him against the Sabres, Jets, and Oilers?
  • I would pay big money to hear the voice mail Lapierre left for Boyle.  All I can hear is Doug’s psuedo-French accent in my head.

Go Sharks.
