Analyzing the Key Reasons for the San Jose Sharks’ Recent Slump

November 14th, 2014 by Brad Kurtzberg Leave a reply »
The San Jose Sharks got off to a 4-0-1 start to the 2014-15 NHL season. But after 18 games, they have a 9-7-2 record. That means the team has gone a mediocre 5-7-1 since its first five games.

There have been several reasons for the team's inconsistency. Here is a look at the top five reasons for the Sharks' recent mediocre play.

There are many factors involved in the team's struggles, but these are the top five.

As an honorable mention, the fact that some players are still adjusting to new roles this season—whether in a new leadership position or a new position on the ice—has to be mentioned. The fact that the leadership issue will not be settled until the playoffs and is currently unresolved kept it from making our final five factors.

Feel free to comment on any one of these reasons or to add one of your own that was not included here. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
