I see Rivet has 5 points in 6 games, good for him!

Definitely. I watch as much of the Sharks as I can (they're second only to the Habs in my books!), and Rivet's game has actually improved. While he still isn't tremendous in his own end, his puck-handling skills have really come into their own, and he's become pretty adept at jumping in and joining the rush. I'm very surprised at the minutes he's logging there too; he's second on the team in ice-time! :o

And he's still not afraid to drop the gloves. ;)

Don't get me wrong; I still think his time was up with Montreal (no longer seemed to fit well with our systems), but he does fit in with the Sharks, so congratulations are definitely in order. :)

So, Setoguchi was just called up. The kid is about 4 years younger than me, but went to the same school in Taber Alberta. It's wierd to see a face from my home town rink in the NHL!

Just one of those kids that everyone knew was going to go somewhere with hockey, even in Novice! I remember watching my brothers games and there was this little japanese boy that played like he was 4 years older than everyone else.

2 goals for Devins first Nhl regular season game, and NHL.com's first star of the night!

Is it just me, or did Joe Thorton change his name to Thornton.

I honestly never remember that extra n.

Being born and raised in St. Thomas Ontario with most of my relatives still living there I can assure you it has always been Thornton. :D

Thornton and Roenick are carrying the team on their shoulders so far this year.

They have scored 40% of the Team's goals (23 of 57) and have them at 6-2-2 in their last ten games.

yup, this team is generating surprisingly low amounts of offense. I was expecting them to score goals by the bushels, it's not happening.

Who's that Roenick guy and didn't he consider retirement? ;)

I didn't think JR had anything left in the tank... I was wrong I guess.

What player would not have a second life on a Team that (if they can put it all together) could make a run for the Cup? :)

Not the same. No one predicted Chicago would be this good. It will be interesting to see if they can keep it up.

San Jose on the other hand has the skilled players; though I am not sure about the goalie.

as much as i can say that i'm not a huge fan of big joe's, he is probably the best player on our team. and with cheechoo being on the IR, it doesn't help our chances of winning. okay, it may since he hasn't really done much lately. but neither has joe. our 3rd and 4th lines are really picking it up and scoring the goals. really shows us and the team that they can do it just as well as the top two lines. not every game has to be thornton, marleau and cheechoo scoring the goals.

This is hands down the most perplexing team in the league...

How they're unable to generate any offense at all is beyond me...

We have a job shadow student at work right now, who is Aboriginal and he's a cousin to Cheechoo. Apparently he gets free tickets to the games in Calgary/Edmonton when the Sharks come to play.

Small world.

Well Joe is carried this team the first 20+ games in that department.

Their 41 pts right now would put them in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference.
