2010-11 Preview: San Jose Sharks
2010-11 Prediction 3rd Western Conference
The Sharks finished the 2009-10 season in 1st place in the Western Conference with a 50-20-11 record and 113 points. Unfortunately for the Sharks and their fans they once again dominated the regular season but didn't make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. GM Doug Wilson didn't make any major changes to the already talented offense or defense but he did make a huge change in goal. He decided not to resign free agent goalie Evgeni Nabokov but to sign Antti Niemi who led the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Championship last season. We will see if Niemi is the piece the Sharks were missing to take the Sharks all the way.
Player to Watch: Antti Niemi
