Locked On Sharks

Sheng on Sharks’ Biggest Training Camp Storylines



Training camp kicks off today and Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now joins to look at the biggest storylines for the San Jose Sharks this season including how the Sharks look to replace the lost production from Brent Burns’s departure and if Erik Karlsson can fill the void. We next look at the difference between Doug Wilson and Mike Grier with regards to prospect development (11:00) and how long can the veterans hold off William Eklund and Thomas Bordeleau (17:00). We finish by looking at the San Jose Sharks’ bottom-six and trying to figure out where Nick Bonino slots in and who he should play with (22:00).

Check out the podcast on TwitterInstagramFacebook, and YouTube.

weird comment about Bordeleau leapfrogging Hertl and/or Couture as a top 2 center for this team. i don’t think anyone ever suggested such. could he be the Sharks 3rd best centerman? sure, possibly. i don’t have much doubt he would be their best “offensive” 3C among the conceivable choices (Bonino, Sturm, Reedy, or Weatherby). i can also see Eklund playing on his wing (as they were paired in the rookie tournament to much success).

i’ll bodly predict that the Sharks will have ZERO (noteworthy) secondary scoring from their bottom 6 this season w/o Bordeleau playing 3C.


I’ll have to disagree about your bold prediction. There was something going on that caused such a disjointed team last season. I don’t believe it will be the same. It’s a fresh start that veteran players want more than 1 yr contracts. I’m going to make a bold prediction that the Sharks not only make it to the playoffs. It they make it past the first round and after than anything can happen

it’s always amusing to me how “veteran” mistakes (which we see constantly in every game played) in these conversations ALWAYS get minimized (if they are even brought up) in comparison to young player’s mistakes in the context of why they shouldn’t be played (or why they should be insta benched IF played). i know this is 1 of those “agree to disagree” subjects, but i feel this is too arbitrary and hasn’t been argued well enough to my satisfaction. to say they’ve “earned their length of rope” just doesn’t pass the smell test with me. take Burns for example, how… Read more »

Burns? What about Vlasic. He has been pathetically horrible for years, and most act like it is a recent development. Ditto Thornton and Marleau, and yet there are those who would actually like to see them come back? Mind blowing

Furthermore I agree with your idea that “they have earned their length of rope“ should not apply. First and foremost this is a business, and you were paid to do a job year in and year out. Especially in professional sports there is no level of coasting, at least there shouldn’t be. You should fight to retain your position at all times, however the politics of fat contracts says otherwise. Ownership and GM’s cannot lose face for their stupidity, fans and lesser players suffer the consequences. Very much the situation here
