After a five-game road trip, the San Jose Sharks are back at SAP Center for a five-game home stand.
What are some big questions heading into this home stand?
On Wednesday, I wrote about three questions that could make or break the Sharks season: Will the Sharks’ top-10 goaltending continue? Is Jonathan Dahlen a legitimate top-six forward? Who will help the Logan Couture line with the scoring load?
On this podcast, Nick Flohr and I chatted about some other things that I’ll be looking for during this San Jose Sharks’ homestand. We also talked about Kyle Beach and Brad Aldrich (2:55) before our deep dive into Sharks talk.
Here’s what we’re wondering about the 4-2-0 San Jose Sharks:
Has the Logan Couture line been the best in hockey? Statistically — yes (19:15).
Why is it so important for Nick Bonino and his linemates to provide more offense (23:50)?
Erik Karlsson is playing a career-low minutes at even strength– will San Jose up his playing time (32:10)?
Will the San Jose Sharks’ power play stick to the script and keep shooting (41:20)?
Should William Eklund play more (45:05)?
What are my aspirational San Jose Sharks lines (52:20)?
And finally, Nick and I dive into a new exclusive San Jose Hockey Now Podcast segment, the SPORTLOGiQ Stat of the Week (1:02:25).
