It's time to blow this team up & start over. I have never missed a single Sharks game since their inception 21 years ago, but this season, I either left games early if I was at them, or turned them off if I was watching on TV.

I was really hoping Dougy would be fired after this season so we could hopefully get a GM that would put a hungry & exciting team on the ice. The 2011-2012 Sharks were the most boring & horrible San Jose team in a very, very long time.

Dougy said he made all of these horrible moves to build a solid playoff team. What a joke! The only reason the Sharks even made the playoffs was because of another Dallas collapse. I wrote them off in December, so it was a bonus just seeing them get into the playoffs, but it turned out as expected. Quick exit!

I have been watching hockey for over 50 years and am a huge fan.

I love the Sharks, but I really think it's time for Thornton, Marleau, Clowe, even Boyle to move on. Get rid of all of the newcomers, other than Burns. They were all horrible pick-ups! We needed depth, not more 4th line players, which 90% of the Sharks team are!

Get rid of that worthless Torrey Mitchell & Jason Demers! Torrey Mitchell has always been crap.

Out of the current players, the only ones I would keep & build around would be Couture, Pavelski, Braun, Burns, Vlasic, Desjardins & Wingels. I'm on the fence with Niemi. He's barely above average as a goalie & if he had a decent defense as he did in Chicago when he won the Cup, he would win some more games.

The Sharks points & goals for have gone down the last 2 seasons, while their goals against has gone up. That should tell Dougy where the problems lie with this team.

The defense & goaltending is average & the team is aging and very slow. The special teams suck! I don't see this team improving unless major changes are made. Both with the players on the ice & within the coaching staff.
