"Scott Gomez should officially become a member of the San Jose Sharks today. At least it's headed in that direction now."@DarrenDreger
Doug Wilson apparently told Todd McLellan three days after the season ended that the Sharks' bench boss was staying. Odd that there's been no announcement, but it sounds like there is a debate about assistant coaches. McLellan would fight hard for his guys, but the discussion appears to be about adding someone who had a lengthy NHL career.Elliotte Friedman in his always-excellent 30 Thoughts column confirming McLellan will be back behind the bench in 2012-13.
National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman is slated to be in Glendale Monday to announce the NHL has reached tentative terms to sell the Phoenix Coyotes to an ownership group led by Greg Jamison. The move is a major step in Jamison’s bid to buy the Coyotes and keep them in Arizona. Bettman is slated to hold a press conference before the Phoenix Coyotes-Nashville Predators playoff game. He is expected to announce the Coyotes are no longer on the market and the league is finalizing a sale with Jamison. The NHL has owned the team since 2009. Jamison is the former CEO of the San Jose Sharks and is a minority owner of that franchise.>> Phoenix Business Journal

Hiller injured tonight, Ducks using AHL callupI've been watching the Anaheim-Columbus game tonight, and Hiller was knocked out in the first period with a leg or groin injury. Ellis got hurt a few days ago so they have an AHL callup in goal right now with zero NHL experience. Trading within the division is always risky, so I don't know if a move would end up happening for Nitty or whoever. That said, is there anyone on the Ducks roster that would fit the Sharks' needs if the Ducks panic and try to acquire a goaltender?
Greeting Fear The Fin. I made it a New Year's Resolution to start following hockey more, and the Sharks are my local team so there ya go Now, given I've never really followed hockey much before and I doubt I'll ever really learn about most players. But I would like to learn about our team's current players. Would you guys suggest just going to Wikipedia and read up on the current guys, going to a specific site, or maybe even you guys could help me out? Thanks
Coming out of the Shark head was a little scarier than I thought it would be. I couldn't see anything for like 15 feet.>> Brent Burns, who owns 150 snakes, following the Sharks 5-1 preseason win over Anaheim
