The players will pack up and leave for their off-season homes.

Have a relaxing summer watching baseball and Formula 1.

Before you know it, fall is here.

Players return and rejoin the community.

There will be new faces as the team tries to improve, again.

We start all over again like the time before and the time before that and the time before…

What happened?

They lost to a better team.

We now follow off-season trades/signings.

Then we start all over again in October.

Patrick Marleau turns 900

Patrick MarleauTuesday night Patrick Marleau played in his 900th game with the San Jose Sharks. He celebrated by scoring his 18th and 19th goals of the season in the Sharks’ 4-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators.

“Patty” Marleau is off to a great start this season. His 19th goal puts him first on the team and second in the league for goals scored. His 33 points this season (goals and assists) currently has him in third place in the league. Of course, these numbers will change quicker than you can say “Peter Puck.”

Over his 11-year career, Marleau has had his ups and downs. There were times when “so called” Sharks’ fans demanded he be traded.

Marleau’s success this season may be attributed to being on the top line with Dany Heatley and Joe Thornton, no longer having the pressure of being team captain, vying for a spot on Team Canada, and that it is a contract year.

Congratulations Patrick Marleau, 900 games with the San Jose Sharks.

Attention SJ Sharks Fans, Former Sharks Fans and Sharks Fans who are tired of their team losing…

SJ SharksWe suppose it’s possible that you have no questions for the San Jose Sharks President, General Manager, Head Coach or any of their players. 

Maybe you were completely satisfied with how the team played this year. 

Maybe you were thrilled with the value you received for the price of your playoff tickets. 

Or maybe you’re really a Ducks fan.

But maybe you think these same people actually have some explaining to do.

Satisfied or not with the season, Thursday is your chance to ask questions.  The annual “State of the Sharks” event will be held Thursday, May 14 at HP Pavilion at 7pm (TODAY).  Open to the general public, as always it will provide a forum for Sharks fans to ask questions directly to members of the organization as the team prepares for the 2009-10 season.

Scheduled to be in attendance along with President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Jamison are Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson, Head Coach Todd McLellan and players Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Dan Boyle and Joe Pavelski.  Other players may possibly join too.

There will not be any talk about future player picks or the draft as none of that will be settled until late June.  You’re certainly welcome to give your opinion however.

Free parking will be available in the rear parking lots adjacent to HP Pavilion and attendees are asked to enter through the North doors, located near the rear of the building. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

For more details, please call 408.999.5757.

It’s like déjà vu all over again

no-sharksMaybe Yogi Berra was including the Sharks.

Maybe they need different players.

Maybe they need a new coach.

Maybe a new general manager.

Maybe new owners.

Maybe they need new broadcast announcers.

Maybe less East Coast pizza.

Maybe the City of San Jose’s inferiority complex has rubbed off on the team.

Maybe a realization that how they finished the regular season would carry over into the playoffs.

Maybe more finger pointing.

Maybe playing exciting hockey in the regular season.

Maybe there is a force in the Universe …

Sharks All-Star Voting

fanballoting.nhl.com

The Sharks are off to a great start; they have been enjoying sellouts at home. There is a buzz around the Bay Area that this truly could be the season the Sharks make it to the Stanley Cup finals. However, when it comes to the NHL All-Star voting Sharks’ fans are out to lunch.

None of the Sharks on the ballot are leading the way; for that matter they are down the list of players getting more votes from cities like Chicago, Detroit, Calgary and Anaheim. Heck! Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are leading the league in votes. Sidney Crosby has received the most votes ever in NHL All-Star balloting history. The Bay Area’s only current superstar Joe Thornton is down the list!

The Sharks on this season’s All-Star ballot are Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Dan Boyle, Rob Blake, and Evgeni Nabokov.

You vote for three forwards, two defencemen and one goaltender in each Conference. Since only two Sharks are listed in the forwards category, Devin Setoguchi is currently the Sharks fan’s leading “write in” candidate for the third forward

You may vote as many times as you want; which we hope is often.

You can vote for all the Sharks on the ballot by texting SHARKS to 81812 or online at NHL All-Star Fan Balloting where you can include your “write in” candidate.

The All-Star Fan Balloting closes at 05:59:59 pm PST on January 2nd, 2009.

Sharks to own a slice of Quakes

Quick drive-by post: According to a Goal.com article, the San Jose Sharks are geared up to own 10-15 percent of the San Jose Earthquakes. That means both teams will be cross-promoting each other and share the database with fans.

This deal makes total sense to me. After all, hockey is essentially soccer played on a colder field.
