I know most of you hate our team right now. I don't blame you. Game five was an example of the Sharks pressing for their lives and getting the best out of all their players, you deserved a better fate. One that wasn't decided by a weird bounce or a suspect call here and there. Those are the elements outside of the control of the players.
The Sharks brought to the ice deserve a mad amount of respect: Marleau was constantly dangerous, Boyle was as good as advertised, Murray is tremendous and not enough can be said about Thornton. Honestly a better leader you'd be hard pressed to find. There was no let up in San Jose's attack. The only Sharks player I can point a finger and laugh is Wellwood and he had a huge game five, so I have nothing to laugh at anymore. Just respect: I respect San Jose.
We'll see you guys again. You're a hell of a team that never quits. From what I saw I'd be proud to call myself a Sharks fan. I know you all know that.
Thank you for a big series.
