Two dudes blogging and podcasting about the San Jose Sharks, straight from sunny California.

post Don’t Mess With Success

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.

post DOH 250 – Boyle Out

The Dudes celebrate their big episode number by a) forgetting it’s episode 250, and b) talking about their worst Sharks nightmare- the potentially catastrophic injury to Dan Boyle.  Of course no one is talking about it, but Mike and Doug have plenty of conjecture and wild-ass guessing to do about this and plenty of other topics.

Filed under: podcast — Written by Mike

The first week of the 2013-14 season has marked the breakout of Tomas Hertl, who has scored six goals in the first three games, including a epic 4-goal perfomance against the Rangers.  Again, the Sharks have started the season on fire, and the Dudes try to break down how this seasons hot start differs or not from last season’s.

The Dudes are back, with the NHL wasteland of news.

post DOH 243 – Pavs Extended

Filed under: podcast — Written by Mike

Joe Pavelski has been extended with the same contract as Logan Couture, but very little else is happening in the world of hockey.  The Dudes soldier on.

Filed under: podcast — Written by Mike

Very little Sharks new to speak of, but there were Sharks prospects and alumni in action.  The Dudes talk about those games, which prospects looked promising (or not), and other topics.
