“He’s been kicked down and stepped on and now it’s about how he responds to it. If he’s the kindof person I think he is, he’s going to respond very well.” -Larry Robinson, asst. coach of the San Jose Sharks on Scott Gomez.  The quote is via the Mercury News but Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal used it in his column on Scott Gomex and Wade Redden.

Report: Sharks to sign Gomez

Center Scott Gomez is expected to join the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, according to a TSN report. Gomez has practiced with the team since having his contract bought out by the Montreal Canadiens last week, but hasn't yet signed a contract.

What’s old is not new

Last week I wondered who would start better, older players or younger ones in the NHL?  That's what I was wondering as I watched the Sharks win their first game of the season.  The win was terribly exciting and a lot of fun to watch.  The joy and excitement even got through the haze of non-hockey distraction that overwhelmed me this past weekend.  But that was yesterday....

His passing ability and experience would have been a boost to the bottom pair. Clearly though, that was never going to happen, and all jokes aside two bad losses doesn’t mean a general manager should blow up his roster and beg for...

The NHL is Back!

Let the Teal Wookie Win   Hockey never left, but the NHL sure did. Now we suddenly find ourselves faced with 13 games on today's docket, not one of which features the Sharks.
