By golly, you’re right, San Jose Mercury News.

  If you don’t believe that the media is always honest with you, turn to David Pollak. He is the beacon of truth in a murky sea of lies. The Stadium Series game between the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks, played at Levi’s Stadium, is expected to attract 70,000 fans, which is bad news for the Sharks who typically don’t thrive when the spotlight is on them.

"I've played on a pond in minor hockey when I was in Quebec one time but that was just sort of fooling around, wasn...

Attendance has been a hot topic in San Jose. The Sharks have drawn an average of 17,385 fans through 29 home games and that’s a pretty respectable number compared to other teams in the NHL. That average checks in at the 18th spot so far in 2014-15, but the team has failed to post a capacity crowd in 15 of its 29 home games. The Sharks are actually averaging more fans this year...
