Scott Gomez signed with the Sharks on Wednesday and had already been practicing with the team a handful of days before that. So, the newest Shark has had some time to get to know his new teammates.
Iâ€™m sure a lot of it has to do with building chemistry on the ice, such as understanding the tendencies of Tommy Wingels and T.J. Galiardi, his potential mates on the third line. Or maybe Gomez is finally getting in a rhythm with the other guys on the second power play unit, which he is also expected to be part of.
Actually, you know what, letâ€™s just hear from Gomez himself on what heâ€™s learning from this group of Sharks:
â€śA couple guys use extra lite Ranch. One guy likes his steak really, really cooked. Little stuff like that you donâ€™t expect.â€ť
So, the important stuff.
In other Gomez news, it sounds as if heâ€™ll be making his Sharks debut Saturday at home against the Avalanche. Hereâ€™s what Todd McClellan told CSNâ€™s Kevin Kurz on Friday:
â€śA very good chance weâ€™ll see him tomorrow,â€ť the head

I honestly believe Scott Gomez will get his hockey career back on track with the move out West as the newest member of the San Jose Sharks. Fantasy hockey owners should play close attention to Scott Gomez over the next several weeks. If at any time Gomez looks as though he has any of the old skill from his New Jersey days I will be jumping all over him as a hockey pool pick. Â What...
Brad Stuart predicted this.
Yesterday, David Pollak published some quotes from Brad Stuart about his career and about the Sharks, what he saw while he was here the first time, and what he saw playing against San Jose later.Â One of those answers might explain this mind-boggling start from Team Teal:
Pollak: "...wasnâ€™t last year a step backward?"
Nobody in the NHL is having a better start to the season than Patrick Marleau.Â The Sharks have started the season 4-0, thanks in large part to Marleauâ€™s torrid pace out of the gate. Marleau added two more goals in the Sharks 4-0 win over the Avs on Saturday to bring to his league-best tally to eight (Chicagoâ€™s Marian Hossa follows with five). Heâ€™s scored twice in each of...
When making your MVP predictions for the 2013 NHL season, did you include Patrick Marleau on your list? You can be honest - I didn't either.Â
Marleau, as well as the bulk of his San Jose teammates, carried rather small expectations into the year following the lockout. For the first time in a long time, seemingly no major outlet considered San Jose to be a true Stanley Cup...

SAN JOSE -- Patrick Marleau is out to change his reputation as a notoriously slow starter during this lockout-shortened season. For the third consecutive game to start the season, Marleau scored two goals, the latest pair in dramatic fashion as the Sharks rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the final half of the third period for a 5-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night. ...
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- One big check woke up the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Defenseman Brad Stuart met Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog with a booming check in open ice, and his Sharks teammates took advantage of retaliation that resulted in power play time for San Jose. Patrick Marleau's two power play goals led the hosts to a 4-0 win over the Avalanche as San Jose won for...
With tedious regularity, Patrick Marleau scores two goals. Of course it's not tedious at all, it's a beautiful thing. Someone should write a song about it.
He scores two goals in Alberta,
And two in the next game.
He scores two goals before he scores two goals and then...
Well, we're not to game five yet.Â But he's already done something that hasn'...
Patrick Marleau became the second player in NHL history to open a season with four straight multigoal games, striking twice on the power play in the first period in the San Jose Sharks' 4-0 victory against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.
Marleau has scored exactly two goals in each game this season, joining Ottawa's Cy Denneny in 1917-18 as the only players to open a...
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Patrick Marleau scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:53 remaining for his third straight two-goal game, helping the San Jose Sharks rally from a two-goal deficit to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-3 in their home opener Thursday night.
Logan Couture and Marty Havlat also scored and Joe Thornton had three assists and an empty-net goal for the Sharks, who have opened...
San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan is pleased that his team's offense is clicking.
His whole team has generally been on top of its game in recent years against the Colorado Avalanche.
The unbeaten Sharks look to continue their early success Saturday as they try for a seventh straight overall win against the Avalanche and a ninth consecutive regular-season series victory at...
Behind the scorching stick of Patrick Marleau, the San Jose Sharks are one win away from their best start in franchise history. Standing in the way are the Vancouver Canucks, a team they've had trouble with over the past two seasons.
The Sharks will try to remain one of the league's three unbeatens Sunday when they host the Canucks, who have 10 of the last 13 meetings including...
