Through 46 games, they’re on pace for 86 points. From 2005-06, the advent of the shootout and the end of the tie, to 2018-19, the last 82-game season, the average worst postseason squad had 92 points.
Can the Sharks up their points percentage pace to truly put themselves in the playoff conversation?
If they do, it’s likely that most or all these Sharks — San Jose Hockey Now’s choices for Team MVP, Best Defenseman, Top Rookie, Biggest Surprise, Biggest Disappointment, and Wild Card — will be carrying the load.
Timo Meier leads the San Jose Sharks in most offensive counting stats — points, assists, plus-minus, power-play goals, game-winning goals, and shots — but it’s probably in the micro-stats where Meier’s value is best expressed.
Despite missing five games, Meier still leads the Sharks, per SPORTLOGiQ, in cumulative Zone Exits and Zone Entries.
