Brendan Lemieux Getting Back on Track

Some players transition seamlessly from the CHL to the pros, but most do not. Brendan Lemieux is one of the ones who didn’t. He had a rough first pro season, full of ups and downs. Nobody expected him to score at the same pace he did in the OHL, but a rookie season bookended by injuries did him no favors.

Sharks Play the Waiting Game

For the San Jose Sharks, this offseason is pivotal. They lost their all-time leading goal scorer to free agency. They’ve re-signed their all-time best player, despite being 38 years-old, coming off a down season and finishing it with two torn knee ligaments. He got 16% raise. The Sharks have made few moves. Though I question some, in the bigger picture, I think they are trying...

The San Jose Sharks are going through one of their more unfortunate offseasons in recent memory. The team lost Patrick Marleau to the Toronto Maple Leafs after 19 incredible seasons with the Sharks.

Chris Tierney’s One-Year Contract is a Win-Win

San Jose Sharks center and restricted free agent Chris Tierney agreed to the terms of his qualifying offer from the team this week, and it’s pretty puzzling at first glance. A one-year deal for $735,000 seems low for a three-year pro coming off of his best season by several different measures. There are a number of reasons this deal makes sense for the team and for the player,...

NHL players signing contracts on lawn mowers and talking lawn care is now a thing

Brent Burns, Joe Thornton and their beards rule 'Body' issue

San Jose Sharks teammates Brent Burns and Joe Thornton are well-known for their shared love of majestic facial hair. Both Thornton and Burns rock delightfully long, unkempt beards (hobo-chic, perhaps?) and it’s arguably the most identifying physical trait for both NHL stars. While that may indeed be the case, it may soon change thanks to the Sharks stars' incredible photo shoot...
