Sharks Need Bonino to Score, Writing on Wall for Vlasic



On this week’s episode of the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast, Sheng and Nick Flohr tackle the big San Jose Sharks questions from the past week.

Kevin Labanc (5:00) was demoted (again) — why is he so important to the fortunes of the San Jose Sharks (10:35)? How can Timo Meier’s emergence as a star be a road map for Labanc?

Marc-Edouard Vlasic (18:20) isn’t that far from being benched. Why was Sheng trying to be optimistic about Vlasic during training camp? What shocking usage development on the penalty kill is a mark of where things are going for Vlasic (27:25)?

Nick Bonino (40:30) is struggling to help the San Jose Sharks offensively. Why does that matter? And looking at the last six Stanley Cup finalists, what’s the ideal offensive contribution for a third-line center (46:20)?

Finally, we wrap up with the SPORTLOGiQ Stat of the Week (59:14).
