Couture physically and mentally slow to recover from Sharks' playoff collapse

Logan Couture doesn't have to look far to be reminded of the San Jose Sharks' playoff collapse against the Los Angeles Kings. His surgically repaired right hand still has scars from last month's surgery, and the recovery has been slow. He expects the hand, injured in a fight with Kings centre Mike Richards, to be OK by training camp. And Couture works out with Kings...

Wilson explains the ‘rebuild’ in San Jose

When hockey fans hear the word “rebuild,” they usually think of a team like the Edmonton Oilers. Haven’t made the playoffs since 2006. Three first overall picks in a row from 2010 to 2012. The plan in Edmonton was to be bad, and rebuild a winner through the draft. It hasn’t quite worked out that way, but that was the plan. That’s not the plan in San Jose, according to...

Expect plenty of Joe Thornton, Rangers rumors this summer

The smoke suggests that Joe Thornton may be heading out of San Jose this summer. The Sharks are in the midst of quasi rebuild focusing on their younger core of Logan Couture, Brent Burns, and Tomas Hertl. Even though Thornton and Patrick Marleau signed extremely team friendly contract extensions earlier in the season, the impending shakeup seems to indicate that one or both players...

Sharks need more anything-to-win players

The Summer of Shame began impressively Friday morning for the Sharks. No one hid as the locker clean-out took place. No one ducked the truth. No one rationalized. The players all understood that their playoff meltdown, blowing a 3-0 lead over the Los Angeles Kings and losing four straight, was indefensible. "I think this is going to be with us a long time," said Patrick...

Armchair GM Part 1: Re-signing free agents

Over the next while, I thought it would be interesting to become the "armchair GM" for my posts, and give my input as to what I would do for the Sharks over the summer.

Kings Goalie Jonathan Quick Refuses To Let Go Of Logan Couture (GIF)

When a goalie is playing as poorly as Jonathan Quick has been during the Stanley Cup playoffs, he’ll try anything to gain an edge. For Quick, grasping an opponent’s leg and refusing to let go apparently falls within those parameters. The Los Angeles Kings goaltender has allowed an NHL-high 16 goals over three consecutive playoff losses, and his team — considered by some...

Jonathan Quick Is A Stage-Five Clinger

This is a pretty hilarious highlight from Tuesday night’s Game 3 between the Kings and Sharks in Los Angeles. Late in the third period, Sharks forward Logan Couture got tangled up with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who grabbed ahold of Couture and refused to let him rejoin the play down ice. Couture was eventually able to wiggle free from Quick but he was pretty furious that there...

Shot-blocking dangerous business for Couture, Sharks

One of the reasons Logan Couture is perhaps the Sharks’ most indispensable player is his proficiency on the penalty kill. He regularly takes shifts while the team is shorthanded, and is a big reason that group ranks fifth in the NHL. A big part of penalty killing, though, is blocking shots. Getting in front of 100 mile-per-hour howitzers is a requirement, and Couture has no problem...

Video- Did The Puck Cross The Goal Line?

via the Situation Room Blog, At 8:49 of the third period in the Sharks/Flyers game, video review was inconclusive in determining whether Logan Couture's shot completely crossed the goal line. Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal San Jose. You decide and although the goal really did not matter for the Sharks, they won 7-3, it would have been a hat...

Slumping Sharks won't rush back Logan Couture

Logan Couture won't be rushed back into the lineup. Sharks coach Todd McLellan made that perfectly clear this week.

Slumping Sharks badly missing Logan Couture

For two-and-a-half weeks, the Sharks handled Logan Couture’s absence admirably. Despite losing their second line (and at times top line) center with a hand injury, San Jose won seven of its first nine games without the 24-year-old rising star. They could sure use him now. San Jose has scored just one goal in its last three games, all regulation losses. On back-to-back nights...
