*** San Jose Sharks 2014 Off-Season Thread ***

Great articles on NHL.com about the team on the 30 in 30 bit.

Six Questions the Sharks have to answer: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=679518&navid=nhl:topheads

Sharks Top 10 prospects: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=679492&navid=nhl:topheads

1. Tomas Hertl, C: Hertl will enter training camp ready and able to crack the Sharks' opening-day roster. He was taken 17th in the 2012 NHL Draft, and so far the 19-year-old has exceeded all expectations. Last season the Czech Republic native led his hometown team, HC Slavia Praha, with 18 goals and 30 points in 43 games despite being the youngest player on the team.

After a sensational season in the competitive Czech Extraliga, Hertl signed a three-year, entry-level contract June 4. Most prognosticators have Hertl starting the season on the second line alongside Joe Thornton and Brent Burns, replacing TJ Galiardi, who was traded to the Calgary Flames.

If Hertl cracks the roster, expect the 6-foot-2, 200-pound forward to display a willingness to battle for the puck and an ability to make a play with it.

That would be really interesting to see him paired up with Jumbo and Burnsy. That's a big line. 6-2 200 / 6-4 235 / 6-5 230. Lot of scoring potential there and some big-time performers and mentors for Hertl to learn from.

hm... that preview was whack
I like the original Sharks jersey the best



One of the best jerseys IMHO
Seriously? I liked the new ones. But honestly, if they don't stray too far from what we've got, they'll still look awesome. What do the rumored "new new" jerseys look like?

Something tells me that new jerseys does not mean there's any real attention taken away from winning.

they look nice

i like the all black sweater though
I think they'll look better by decreasing the amount of orange. Even if it's a subtle change, it's all about the merchandising revenue.
new unis to be released tomorrow.
