San Jose Sharks Need Emotion: Todd McClellan Not the Man

March 16th, 2010 by Brian Winett Leave a reply »
Since I now live in SoCal chasing my Hollywood dreams, I have tried and tried again to like the teams down here in all the major sports.  As much as I try, it's the Sharks, Giants, and Niners I stay loyal to. 

You can imagine my disgust sitting with my fellow San Fran ex-pats at the Sharks/Ducks game on Sunday, watching the Ducks fly out to a 3-0 lead in the first period.  What was even more disturbing was the way the Sharks responded to it.

You turn on the TV and listen to our broadcasters, for whom I have love for, and all they're selling game in and game out is Todd McClellan's one trick pony strategy to get the puck deep. 

That's all the Sharks did for the first 50 minutes of the game, and we were thoroughly dominated.

All three Ducks' goals were scored on the rush, and sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.

When they did finally make a change and start attacking on the fly, the Sharks began to dominate the play, although it was too little, too late.

What was McClellan waiting for?  Was he even paying attention?

We're the Sharks, not the Guppies!
