Sharks Offered Gorton Job, Colletti for GM?



From Bordeleau to Wilson, this week’s episode of the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast covers everything San Jose Sharks since last Thursday’s momentous announcement that GM Doug Wilson was stepping away from the San Jose organization.

I was there at Thomas Bordeleau’s three-assist pro debut and had detailed thoughts about his game, good and bad (1:00).

Want a Mushu injury update (19:30)?

We love Mike McKenna (21:45)! ICYMI listen to our chat last week with Mike about what he’d do with San Jose’s three-heading goaltending monster.

Once again, the San Jose Sharks are not re-building (32:00). Any prospective GM candidate will need to accept that reality. Besides that, what do I think the Sharks are looking for from their next GM (39:15)?

The San Jose Sharks offered Jeff Gorton a job this summer (47:45). You can learn more about that here:

What does Ned Colletti have to say about being the Sharks GM (51:00)?

Question: What type of candidate would want to inherit this obviously bad Sharks team? (good question)
Answer: Believes in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. Also believes the Sharks can be a really good team next season.

Sheng: good point about lack of former NHL players among execs in Wilson’s absence. Ricci is the lone ex-NHL guy I see the exec box on a regular basis.

are they gonna have to put Hill on LTIR in the off season to make moves? i can’t imagine trying to trade him. he might even start the season on LTIR.

david barnard

they can say what they want about it, the simple fact is that they haven’t been “competitive” for 3 seasons straight. they haven’t really made any serious off season moves to get competitive either. if they’re in a “de facto” rebuild (they dumped MJ last off season) and might be buying out MEV this off season, does it matter what they/we call it?

david barnard

hedging their bets? some kind of hybrid failure to commit 100% to something? woke phrasing? Hertl puts butts in seats, we all know it. a quasi rebuild is still a rebuild, imo. the big tell will be whether they b/o MEV to make room for a decently big summer FA splash.

“Woke phrasing”. Well said. Everything starts from the top. The very very top.


The team needs a complete overhaul and new philosophy (how about inserting the level “meanness” that it takes to have a legit shot at the Cup). If the GM is selected by someone other than the current owner, then I think we have an owner problem. Prior ownership selected Wilson if I remember correctly. My vote is for Dean Lombardi as GM again (OK, not going to happen). He found brought in Ricci….and that was the BEST era of Sharks hockey.


The past four years have not been that good. On second thought, the last Pavelski year was a good one. PS: I appreciate your reporting Sheng. Maybe you should be the GM

david barnard

hopefully Hasso rejects that floated Will idea about co-GM’ing!
