Back to the Lockout II: the parody

The NHL lockout meets one of the greatest trilogies of all time: Back to the Future. A parody that poses one solution for fixing the lockout.


History of the Maple Leafs Roster

A look at how the 2012-13 Toronto Maple Leafs roster was composed through trades, draft picks, and free agent signings.

Genesis of the 2012-13 Sharks Roster

Last Wednesday, Sharks alumni faced off against Russian legends in a charity game to benefit the Jr. Sharks Scholarship fund. Sharks fans were so hockey-starved that tickets sold out in 30 minutes, leaving some people (including myself) out of the fun. So in case you weren't able to go, or even if you were (jealous), here are some post-game interviews with Curtis Brown, Kyle McLaren, and GWG scorer Owen Nolan. Click here for some photos of the event. The third one is my favorite.

Doug Wilson and the Draft


Fear the Fin takes a look at what kinds of moves Doug Wilson has made during the draft for the past nine seasons, and whether or not they have produced NHL players.

Sharks acquire UFA D Brad Stuart's rights from Detroit for Andrew Murray, conditional pick


First tweeted by the Mercury News's David Pollak, the news that the Sharks were expected to announce this afternoon was revealed to be the acquisition of Brad Stuart's rights. In return, the Sharks send Andrew Murray and a conditional 2014 7th round pick to Detroit (the condition being, of course, signing Brad Stuart). Brad Stuart, the Sharks' 3rd overall draft pick in the 1998 draft, was traded away from the Sharks on November 30, 2005 along with Marco Sturm and Wayne Primeau in the famous Joe Thornton trade. He scored 6 goals and 15 assists last season, as well as led the Red Wings in hits. Stuart's family has remained in San Jose since the trade, and he was reportedly looking to sign with a team in California once he became a free agent. This means that it is almost certain that Brad Stuart will sign with the Sharks, which now raises questions about the fates of the other San Jose defensemen.

The San Jose Sharks fail to overcome a lackluster start and fall 3-2 to the Carolina Hurricanes.

San Jose Sharks on Kitchen Nightmares


During pre-season, some of the San Jose Sharks went to the Spin-A-Yarn restaurant in Fremont for a taping of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Last night, the episode finally aired. And as a reluctant avid viewer of Kitchen Nightmares, I can say that the Sharks got more air time and importance given to them than other big names that have appeared on the show. Link is to the Hulu stream, which will be available for non-plus subscribers in a week. If you don't care about the show other than just seeing the Sharks, skip to around 35 minutes in.

Sharks Gameday: Hot and Hotterer


Tonight, the San Jose Sharks take on their Eastern Conference doppelganger Washington Capitals.

NHLPA refuses to consent to proposed NHL realignment


It has come out today that the NHLPA has refused to agree with the realignment proposal the NHL had come up with earlier in the season. This means that there will be no realignment next season, and the current division and playoff format will remain. As this is the final season of the current CBA, I would guess that the NHLPA would like realignment to be in the discussion of the next CBA, or is using it as a bargaining chip of some sort. Of course, it could just mean they disagree with the return to divisional playoffs, unequal conference sizes, increased travel for the Eastern teams, or the issue of the Florida teams in the same conference as the Northeastern teams.

Sharks Beat LA 2-1 in the Shootout


Ryane Clowe's unexpected forehand shootout move gives the Sharks a 2-1 win over the rival Los Angeles Kings.

Ryane Clowe in the San Francisco Giants booth


In case you missed it last night, here's Ryane Clowe in the broadcast booth with Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper during the third inning of the San Francisco Giants game. Some interesting things discussed, such as shift lengths, the team he currently dislikes (SPOILER! It's Vancouver), and hockey injuries compared to baseball injuries.

Bike with Brent Burns


Last night, Sharks defensemen Brent Burns (@Burnzie88) invited his followers on Twitter to join him on a bike ride Saturday morning at 10am. Yes, all of them. This includes you. All interested are to meet up at Mike's Bikes in Los Gatos at 10am on September 10. The current plan is to bike up Highway 9 to Saratoga. And Brent Burns continues on his (rather successful) quest to make himself a fan favorite before he even plays a single game in teal.

WTC: Full Playoffs Injury Report


I recommend giving the post a read just for the anecdote about Clowe and Kesler (as well as more detail about when each injury happened), but here's the injury report: Jason Demers - high ankle sprain Scott Nichol - laceration above the knee Dany Heatley - broken hand, high ankle injury Ryane Clowe - shoulder separation Dan Boyle - damaged MCL Logan Couture - broken nose Joe Pavelski - ankle injury Joe Thornton - broken pinkie, wrist problem, shoulder separation I think I speak for everyone when I say, "Ouch."
