Sharks Being Sharks; Choking on a Great Start?

The world continues to turn.

The sun continues to burn.

And the San Jose Sharks choked on a great start to the season.

The pain... it Burns.

After kicking off the season on a dominant 7-0 tear, the Sharks have now dropped five games in a row bringing their record down to 7-3-3. While a record like that is good enough to earn them the fourth spot in the West for now, further struggles could see the Sharks drop down the standings, and fast.

Critics have said it time and time again, but it bears repeating; the Sharks big guns need to come up huge for them to win big, including goaltender Antti Niemi. Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton both got off to a fast start, but in the Sharks four losses, they've been held to only one point, both of which came in their second most recent 2-6 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

This team has mad potential. Cup winning potential even. But before that they need to get their shit together, big time.

Twas the Day After Christmas...

Hope has escaped me.  I genuinely don't think there's going to be a season, and as you can see, I have begun to lash out at my friends and family.

Yesterday I was sitting at the dinner table with my family, eating Christmas dinner, and when my grandma asked me to pass the cranberries. I thought she said Crosb-erries so I blacked out and cut her with a 2005-2006 Yann Danis rookie card.

I fucking cut her.


Locked Out: D2N vs. Depression

It's been a little while, hasn't it?

Scary Gary
We're sorry.  Truth be told, there have been better days for this blog. I mean let's be honest, it ain't easy being cheesy, and by cheesy, I of course mean writing about a league so broken that it's players can't come to an agreement with their teams, or the man whom they pay to get them to an agreement with said teams.

This lockout hurts, and there's no getting around it.  It evokes a deep stinging in the heart, as most would describe it.  More NHL related pain and butthurt after the jump...


Patrick Kaleta Headbutted a Guy. Shit Got Real.

Buffalo Sabre's forward Patrick Kaleta has been suspended for 4 games following an incident in the Sabre's November 2nd game against the Flyers, and by incident, I mean Kaleta headbutted another player for the second time of his career.

In a National Hockey League where hundreds of players and coaches are concerned with concussions and head shots, Patrick Kaleta stands alone.  What a ballsy move, endangering another player's head and his own head in a single play. What an over-achiever.


Around the League: Season's Greetings

Hockey season started and stuff.

Sorry guys, we really dropped the ball for a while there.

Really though, this season is off to a solid start, and for what its worth, we're coming back to blogging with a vengeance*.  Some points of interest from this young season so far after the jump.

*Vengeance is subject to change.  Make the jump, like a boss.
