I'm a huge Sharks fan, and this has been a pretty great season so far. I'm relieved we've been doing so well with the constant rotation of injuries of our top players. The young guys are really rising to the occasion, which is great considering Thornton probably doesn't have too many years left and the loss of Marleau to the Maple Leafs. Watching their performance against the Predators shows that they've got the speed and talent to contend with the top-ranked team in the league, so hopefully we make it to the finals again.
Playoffs are always a great time, and it will be interesting to watch if the Golden Knights can keep up their stellar performance. I'm not all that shocked that they've been doing so well, since everything about the expansion draft was stacked in their favor. But it's always good to mix things up in the league every now and then.
