Sharks' starting goalie job up for grabs

Antti Niemi and Alex Stalock talk as if very little has changed in their world, though it has. The Sharks, after all, pitted the two against each other in a battle for the starting goalie job as part of the fallout from last spring's playoff demise.

Season Preview: @DudesOnHockey On The @SanJoseSharks

Since their inception, the San Jose Sharks have been my "Number 2" team.
