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

The Sharks face their nemesis again, the Los Angeles Kings, in round 1.  The Dudes like the Sharks’ chances with home ice and a returning Tomas Hertl.

The Sharks can’t win on the road, and lose to the Kings in 7 games.  The Dudes rank this loss against other playoff disappointments, pinpoint what the problems were, and preview the next round.  Remember this podcast continues, even in the offseason.

The Sharks have fought back from 0-2 to tie the series at home, with an overtime win and a close 2-1 win in game 4, all without Martin Havlat, Raffi Torres, and Adam Burish.  With the top Sharks playing the way they are, they look as good as anybody in the NHL playoffs right now.

The Sharks draw the Kings due to the help from the Red Wings, but L.A. is a formidable opponent, and win 2-0 due to an outstanding performance by Jonathan Quick.  But the real story is about the Raffi Torres hit on Jarret Stoll.  The Dudes discuss the legality of the hit and the possible aftermath of a meeting with Brendan Shanahan.

The Sharks have managed to stay great a home, and have at the time of recording played themselves into the #5 seed.  But the Dudes have no illusions- there are plenty of good teams around, the Kings among them.  It could come down to the last day of the season as far as seeding goes, but barring a late collapse, the Sharks will be playing in the second season.

It’s a milestone episode, and the Dudes have to face the fact that the Kings are the Stanley Cup Champions, and the long term de facto Pacific division favorite.  But in Sharks news, Brad Stuart is back, and the Dudes figure out what that means for the rest of the defensive corps.  Finally, Mike and Doug cover the entire Sharks lineup, particularly the RFAs and UFAs, predicting which will be retained, and which will be free to test the market.

Correction: Brad Stuart was a #3 overall pick, not #6 as we said in the podcast. (Matt D’Agostini)

In the last podcast of this hecto-podcast, Doug and Mike talk about the news of the day, the Stanley Cup finals, and take some listener emails.

post DOH 198 – Contemplating Regicide

Mike and Doug are back again, talking about the Kings being the favorite to win the Cup, the Devils-Rangers series, and the continuing non-info about the Sharks’ coaching situation.

post DOH 194 – Sharks vs. Blues 1

The Sharks have made it into the playoff by winning their last four games, the two against the Kings in a wildly entertaining fashion.  But now they face the Blues in the first round, without beating them all year.

After three good wins, the Sharks manage to lose two critical road games to Anaheim and Phoenix, and they are back out of the playoff picture.  We can go over what they did wrong, how Mike Smith is the second coming of Ken Dryden or whatever, but the fact is this:  if the Sharks can’t beat Dallas and L.A. for the next four games, they don’t deserve to be in the playoffs anyway.  Should they manage to limp in without winning those four games, they will almost certainly get crushed by whomever they face in the first round, playing either St. Louis or Vancouver with no home ice.
