    playoff game...

    Yeah, Thornton has never been a big time guy. Some people just fold when the pressure is truly on. Good people, too. Talented people. It happens.
  2. I agree with THIS. lol except the puck luck. They've had a goalie stealing the show and a relentless forecheck. They also played a Sharks team that didn't really belong that far to begin with. I agree that a coaching change will make a world of difference. We also have a stellar goalie who can steal the show. A forward group CAPABLE of tearing it up. A defense that has the talent to be brutal when used correctly.

    That was a Chiarelli trade?!?! no wonder....wow....yeah, I thought the Seguin trade was way earlier so when I added it and then did the research I saw how recent it was and probably shouldn't have included it. It looks so bad.

    Agreed! Niemi I felt just got the benefit of being the goalie in net for the Hawks '10 run. He wasn't anything special, really, in that run if I remember correctly. Hawks did a great thing by trading him in the off season. They knew. Yeah! Backes vs. his old team he used to Captain...the whole Orr thing...although Thornton vs. team that drafted him would have been cool, too. But I'm ok with this haha On a side note...I think it's interesting looking back at the big trades Bruins have made...the Thornton one most people say was a definite win for the Sharks and loss for the Bruins...but since the trade the Bruins have won the cup and have 3 finals appearances...the Sharks had 1 finals appearance...no cups...same thing when you look at the Seguin trade...since then Dallas has 0 appearance and the Bruins have 1. At least in the Thornton one...something to be said about them ultimately winning that trade.

    I hope EK doesn't resign...that he sees the writing on the wall...he sees Jones as a weak goalie...he sees the weak leadership...and goes somewhere else. I mean...he had a groin injury and STILL lead the NHL in assists in the playoffs...geez he is amazing... But also...Sharks haven't had a good goalie in a while...honestly since Nabakov is you ask me. Never really liked Niemi...never really liked Jones.

    I do love how the last time the Blues were in the finals that it was against Boston with that infamous Orr goal being the cup winning goal...49 years ago!

    Congrats Blues!!!! Sharks...you never deserved 2 wins in this series...let alone to even get past round 1....

    "Jones really keeping them in this game!!" yeah...he also completely threw away game 5...sooooo.... Honestly, those goals he allowed in Game 5...if I was EK I would be piddleed at the decisions my goalie made and would have completely lost the will to play, too.

    playoff game...

    Completely agree. Never really saw Thornton or Coulture or Hertl or Jones or Kane as players that can really deal with adversity...a big reason to why they haven't really had much success in the post season...2014 couldn't hold on to a 3-0 series lead. 2015 no playoffs. 2016 they faced almost none till the finals and just couldn't recover. 2017 didn't really get out of the gate except for 1 game. 2018 they had no adversity in the first round lol (ugh). And 2019 it took a ridiculously horrible call to go their way...and that was the only way they could recover. I truly think Thornton drags this team down. I know he was a beast at center and all of that...but he just never had the clutch they needed...and I really don't believe he ever had the leadership... Burns is all good in my opinion. But them being in the conference finals has always been a joke and shouldn't have happened. It's like that guy who was never really good at his job suddenly in a higher position...and it's just super clear that he really does not belong.

    Jones is overrated...but you can't really blame him on those 2 goals

    playoff game...

    Ahhh...well...it's just so risky to have them make it to the Finals...although....man...there would be some silver lining to that lol

    That doesn't happen if they lose NOW? On top of all of that, I hope that they can't re-sign EK.

    Same same same same All this talk of "oh man what if Kane didn't hit the post and it went in????" ...well...I'd say to that then it would have been 5 to 1 instead of 5 to 0 😛

    playoff game...

    Man...Jones is just leaving that short side on the glove side open ALL game. And I'd be stunned, too, if I were the Sharks players...my goalie just passed it TO THE BLUES player to score in an empty net...like...you're at a point as a player where you can't trust your keeper. That's really bad. And also they can't exactly use Game 7 against the Knights as motivation...they had a 5-min major power play!

    Also Football is sooo insanely start and stop...I can't stand it...although it makes it easy to be social while watching the game....same with baseball. Hockey you want to be focused a little bit more lol True, I see your point...but...also...I like that you're saying I'm probably right haha so I'd rather just focus on that part And not sure if they got suspended or not...I mean....it's bull...but also, if NO ref saw it they can't do much than what they did....but...like...come on....refs...LOOK at the puck lol

    Ok, yeah, that's fair. I get that. But I still stand by that the Sharks on a PP could have resulted in a shorthanded goal by the Blues

    playoff game...

    The Canes coach had an interesting suggestion of taking a linesman and a ref and put them in the timeskeeper box and have an overall look on the ice. Same responsibilities if on the ice, but get the extra view. But more importantly, I think it's super exciting that the NHL might have to get into a very deep philosophical discussion about how (if at all) do actions ACTUALLY affect something? The hand-pass directly affected the goal last night...but...as you pointed out, where do you draw the line? One could definitely argue that a missed call as long ago as a previous period had a chain reaction that lead to this goal. Some Sharks fans are trying to equate missing penalties as the equivalent of missing that hand pass. First off - that's incredibly ridiculous to try and compare as one thing has the potential to create a goal while the other ACTUALLY created a goal. But 2nd off - who's to say that those power plays wouldn't have just given more momentum to the Blues and then they would have gotten MORE goals???? So really, the Blues have just as much of a case to make that the missed calls hurt them, too. It's all in theory, any way! I disagree with the 5MM review. I think just 'cause it gives a team an advantage, that it's STILL on the opposing team to defend well. Missed calls like that suck, but like, if you play well, you don't let them be a factor. That's just my response to the Vegas and Colorado batched calls. The Blues one last night is HORRIBLE.

    As of right now I'd say the refs are the Conn Smyth favorite...

    Fair point fair point

    playoff game...

    I can't get behind that. I CAN get behind that in regards to plays involving goals in the final 2 minutes of a close game/ALL goals in OT...but still, that Game 7 thing is STILL on Vegas...I don't think that should be a reviewable play. It's still wrong and gave the sharks a win they should not have had. But this. This is just....ugh. At this point...it's honestly BAD for the league if the Sharks win the cup. Their run is a disgrace. This is Dallas in '99 all over again. Except potentially worse as it's reoccurring and multiple instances.

    frak THIS frakING Dehydrated Donkey Dung. THE SHARKS HAVE EARNED NOTHING! I look forward to ANOTHER apology from the NHL for giving the Sharks ANOTHER game...there better be a fraking asterisk next to them if they win the cup saying "actually didn't deserve it"

    I truly no longer have any sympathy for bad calls against the sharks...
  23. They just keep having great articles! someone mentions a good article...good interview...interesting sound bite...oh, it's with The Athletic! Would he be a good fit, do you think? As someone who has read that article? lol
  24. Hmmmmm hm hm hm...to bring into TODAY'S lineup? Probably Scotty...he would stable our D and bring out the best of our D (which can be VERY good if they felt confident...) and his leadership in the locker room/on the ice would be sooooo good to have. EDIT: Hell...I'd probably bring in even today's Scotty haha give him a summer to get his legs back...I'm sure he'd be still be a great addition
