Recapping the Past Few Weeks of the Sharks Offseason

Recapping the Past Few Weeks of the Sharks Offseason
recapping-the-past-few-weeks-of-the-sharks-offseason
without much news between 4th of July weekend and the start of training camp in September. General managers,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-bo-horvat-jersey]Authentic Bo Horvat jersey[/url],Of course, front office staffs and, the dog days of the NHL offseason kick in after that,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-alex-ovechkin-jersey]adidas Alex Ovechkin jersey[/url], hockey writers all squeeze in some significant vacation time during that period., most importantly

Still, so let's briefly recap the notable announcements the Sharks have made over that span and what they mean.,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-t.j.-oshie-jersey]Authentic T. J. Oshie jersey[/url], there are always items of interest that pop up from time to time

July 3: Sharks name Rob Zettler assistant coach

 a former Sharks defenseman as well as an assistant coach under Ron Wilson,What it means: The Sharks were in need of a replacement for Bob Boughner, who left Pete DeBoer's staff to join the Florida Panthers as their new head coach. Zettler, as Boughner did., will oversee the defense and penalty kill

 will work with Norris Trophy winner Brent Burns. Burns and Boughner had a special relationship,Zettler, of course, so Zettler will likely have his hands full right away., and Boughner told me at the NHL draft in Chicago how thrilled he was for Burns taking home the award as the league's top defenseman. Coaching Burns can be no easy task at times

July 4: Sharks sign Brandon Bollig

 probably not much,What it means: From the NHL team's perspective, he'll bring some muscle to the AHL Barracuda. , as Bollig is not expected to make the Sharks roster. Instead

 don't be shocked if he makes a handful of appearances in the big club's lineup. Now that Michael Haley has moved on to Florida,Still, Anaheim or Edmonton., Bollig could be an asset in a physical or nasty regular season matchup against a division rival like Los Angeles

July 13: Sharks re-sign Chris Tierney to one-year deal

 according to a source,What it means: It was odd that the Sharks, and will be a restricted free agent again next summer., didn't want to negotiate with Tierney after qualifying him as a free agent. The former second round pick got just a modest raise

 is clear: Tierney had better come to camp in tip-top shape,The message, therefore, he could end up getting pushed out of the lineup by someone like Ryan Carpenter., and ready to prove that he is deserving of a bigger role and a multi-year contract. If he struggles from the outset

July 18: Sharks re-sign Marcus Sorensen to two-year deal

What it means: Sorensen is in a great position to make the opening night roster, but I would surmise at this point he's penciled into the opening night lineup. , and should have some confidence from the way he performed in the first round against Edmonton. Training camp will dictate whether that happens

 or will be go backwards like Joonas Donskoi did last season?,Is Sorensen ready to take the next step

July 19: Sharks to host prospect showcase

 this sounds like a pretty cool event. The Sharks will host a three-team round robin tournament with prospects from the Avalanche,What it means: For the die-hards and us beat reporters, at Solar4America Ice at San Jose (a.k.a. Sharks Ice).,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-ryan-miller-jersey]adidas Ryan Miller jersey[/url], Coyotes and Ducks from Sept. 9-12

 that means we're exactly one month away from hockey. Rosters and information on how to attend will be announced closer to the event.,Yes

July 26: Sharks name Dave Barr assistant coach

 as the Sharks brought in another body to serve on their coaching staff in the 56-year-old Barr. A former assistant with DeBoer in New Jersey,What it means: This announcement was a bit of a surprise, so I imagine Hedberg will now move behind the bench.,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-henrik-sedin-jersey]adidas Henrik Sedin jersey[/url], Barr will serve as the "eye-in-the-sky" for the club. Previously it was Johan Hedberg who did that

Barr, Minnesota, Buffalo,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-alex-ovechkin-jersey]Authentic Alex Ovechkin jersey[/url], a number they will surely have to improve this season., who has spent the last nine seasons coaching in the NHL with New Jersey, Colorado and most recently Florida,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-braden-holtby-jersey]adidas Braden Holtby jersey[/url], could also bring a different perspective to the power play. The Sharks finished 25th in the league on the power play last season

August 7 – Sharks re-sign Barclay Goodrow to two-year deal

What it means: Goodrow is a nice piece to keep in the system, but Goodrow nearly made the team out of camp last season before having a strong year with the Barracuda. , as he's a big body that has some skill. Whether his game can translate to the NHL full-time remains to be seen

Although he's probably behind guys like Sorensen, Goodrow will be a player to watch in training camp. He could push for a spot on the fourth line., Carpenter and Timo Meier on the depth chart

Teams haven’t yet figured out how to play defense, goal scoring briefly spikes and the season is still so young that we can’t really get a firm grasp on what teams are going to look like., goaltenders can be a little rusty

Which team off to a fast start is for real? Which slumping team is truly doomed? Should we pay attention to any of this so far because the early season results can lie to us.

That’s what we attempt to look at in our first installment of the PHT Power Rankings: Which teams are as good as they look, and which teams have played better than their early terrible records., which teams are as bad as they look

 winners of four out of their first five and the highest scoring team in the league. Is Mike Babcock satisfied with the fact they are giving up nearly as many goals and chances as they score? Probably not. But these young kids can flat out fly and once they get turned loose there are not many defenses in the league that can slow them down.,At the top of the rankings we have the Toronto Maple Leafs

 teams likely to fall,From there, we break the 31 NHL teams down into four tiers: Teams as good as they look, and the teams at the bottom that are exactly what they look like., teams likely to rise

As good as they look

 either. Five goals and eight points in his first five games to start the season and a 58.6 percent Corsi mark. Just a dominant,1. Toronto Maple Leafs — Auston Matthews is better than the pre-draft hype. We knew he was a slam-dunk No. 1 pick. We knew he had All-Star potential. He is still better. And not by a little, dominant player., dominant

2. Tampa Bay Lightning — Injuries, decimated this team a year ago. Fully healthy this is still a Stanley Cup contender., especially the season-ending one to Steven Stamkos

 and now they have one.,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-bo-horvat-jersey]adidas Bo Horvat jersey[/url],3. Columbus Blue Jackets — Artemi Panarin is showing that he doesn’t need Patrick Kane next to him to produce and that is great news for the Blue Jackets. They needed a game-breaking forward up front

 they find a way to stick around.,,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-braden-holtby-jersey]Authentic Braden Holtby jersey[/url],4. Chicago Blackhawks — It has been the Corey Crawford and Brandon Saad show in Chicago this year. Just when you think the Blackhawks might start to slow down or that their run as one of the NHL’s top dogs was starting to come to an end

5. Los Angeles Kings — Is it possible that they just needed a new voice, but it is hard to argue with the results thus far … both the record and the underlying numbers., a new system and a new approach? I have my doubts

 especially with that top-four on defense.,6. Calgary Flames — If Mike Smith can give them competent goaltending (and so far he has!) this team could be a serious threat in the Western Conference

 but not as good as they look (Teams likely to fall),Fast start

 but they have been absolutely crushed on the shot chart and you have to wonder how long they can withstand that.,7. St. Louis Blues — Pretty amazing start given the injury situation

8. New Jersey Devils — Nico Hischier gets all of the headlines as the No. 1 overall pick,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-ryan-miller-jersey]Authentic Ryan Miller jersey[/url], but probably not one that is as good as its early record., but don’t sleep on defenseman Will Butcher. He already has eight assists in his first five games. An improved team for sure

9. Ottawa Senators — The most confusing team in the league? Their run to the Eastern Conference Finals a year ago was a shock. [url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-henrik-sedin-jersey]Authentic Henrik Sedin jersey[/url],They were a double-overtime Game 7 on the road away from being in the Stanley Cup Final, they have started the season with eight out of a possible 10 points without getting a single minute of play from Erik Karlsson. Stunning. They also have the second worst shot attempt numbers in the league. Not an encouraging sign for future play.,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-t.j.-oshie-jersey]adidas T. J. Oshie jersey[/url], but it wasn’t really a team that made you think they could do it again. Now

 but this roster is still problematic.,10. Detroit Red Wings — After missing the playoffs for the first time in more than two decades expectations were near an all-time low for the Red Wings this season. They are off to a great start

11. Colorado Avalanche — That defense will not hold up. It just won’t. Have to be encouraged by Nail Yakupov’s start up front though.

 but how long is it going to last? The best thing about James Neal’s start is what it is doing to his trade value for the deadline.,12. Vegas Golden Knights — One of the best starts ever by an expansion team
