Every day this month, one NHL team will be posting a season preview. It’s a good way for you, the Flyers fans, to know what we’re up against this season as we hope to break the Stanley Cup drought. Today we have the San Jose Sharks.
General Manager Doug Wilson (D.W.) is a smart hockey man. Being a smart hockey man means sometimes you have to make tough hockey decisions. This offseason D.W. shook up the Sharks lineup in a big way. He sent snipers Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for sniper Martin Havlat and big-time defenseman Brent Burns. Some were shocked at these changes. I mean, the team has won 4 straight Pacific Division titles and been to 2 straight Western Conference Finals. What is missing is the all important Stanley Cup Finals berth. D.W. is hoping that this shakeup will put this team over the hump.
