What’s Next In San Jose?

from David Pollak of Working the Corners, ... one-third of the way through the season, San Jose continues to be on a downhill slide after elevating expectations by going 7-0-0 out of the chute.

Joe Thornton takes on Jamie Benn in superstar NHL tilt

This is the second fight in a eight days for San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton, and he was clearly the instigator in this one.  I’m not sure what Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn did to piss him off, but clearly something happened for Thornton to pull the old cup check move.  The best part of this tilt?  Thornton motioning for Benn to take off his helmet so that neither of...

The Sharks: Losing Mind Games

Winning breeds winning. The Sharks defense is "winning," their offense isn't.  It's easier to get your brain into a defensive or reactive mode when you lack confidence.  Being aggressive or creative requires confidence.   Confidence or such a lack of it that you feel fear, like a cornered animal.   You don't want that.  The execution of a cornered animal...
