Are Sharks Fans Overreacting? + Micro-Stats Behind Power Play Struggles



Trade Tomas Hertl, fire Bob Boughner, depose Doug Wilson! These are the reactions we’ve seen to this recent Sharks’ skid. But is the call to arms premature?

Sheng answers whether or not he thinks San Jose Sharks fans are overreacting and provides a side-by-side comparison to last year’s Sharks team (7:46). He also explains how the Sharks’ off-season moves have balanced the team out statistically, for better or worse (9:46).

However, it’s not just that the Sharks are losing – it’s how they’re losing – that’s a big reason why I think fans are ready to hit the panic button and gear up for the tankathon (13:45).

We cut to Andrew Cogliano, who clarifies the mood of the locker room and what the team needs to do in order to get off their current schneid (14:13).

Sheng crunches the numbers and gives us a projected points finish and compares it to the expectations that fans had prior to the season (19:36). Sheng then lays out his final thoughts on what the Sharks have to do to rebound from this losing streak (23:14).

We then discuss what the breaking point would be for the San Jose Sharks to fire Bob Boughner in-season (29:55).

Finally, using seven exclusive SPORTLOGiQ micro-stats, we break down the Sharks power play, what’s worked well so far and what needs improvement so they can get back to being league-average (42:01).
