2010 Sharks Playoff Preview: Couture, Malhotra, McGinn, Mitchell
The postseason is right upon us, so Plank and TCY thought it would be prudent to highlight each individual player on the Sharks roster heading into these glorious days. It gives us an opportunity to consolidate all the information we've obtained since the beginning of October, as well as examine the team at a micro-level. Every installment in this series can be found here.
There is literally nothing like the NHL playoffs in the entire world of sports-- the passion, the pain, the hope, the despair, the unrelenting feeling that this year could finally be the one. Each and every goal dictates whether or not you'll end up in some godforsaken alleyway in downtown San Jose singing songs to alley cats, or at home with loved ones singing songs of victory about the heroic undertakings of a team that has given meaning to the wild world in which we live in.
Fasten your seatbelts folks.
God save us all.

Jamie McGinn was a casualty of the Worcester Shuttle this season, logging heavy miles from Worcester to San Jose and back again (and again, and again) as the Sharks attempted to pinch pennies in order to accumulate as much cap space as possible. Following the Trade Deadline, he was finally given a secure roster spot and allowed to grow into his role with the team.
