Incredibly, the Sharks sweep the Canucks in the first round, with Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, and Logan Couture leading the charge. Mike and Doug try to determine whether it was the Sharks winning the series or the Vancouver losing it, then move on to other 1st round matchups, and who the Sharks might face in the second round (rhymes with snackhawks).

The Sharks (cunningly) lose their last two games and draw the Vancouver Canucks in the first round. The Dudes give their first round playoff predictions, and talk about other NHL moves that have already happened, since some teams are in the offseason already.

The Sharks failed to clinch a playoff berth with a disappointing late giveaway against Columbus, but sewed up a spot the next game in an exciting win against Dallas. The Dudes talk the possible and likely 1st round opponent for the Sharks and tell the feel-good Dude story of the year involving Mr. Dan Boyle.
The Sharks have managed to stay great a home, and have at the time of recording played themselves into the #5 seed. But the Dudes have no illusions- there are plenty of good teams around, the Kings among them. It could come down to the last day of the season as far as seeding goes, but barring a late collapse, the Sharks will be playing in the second season.
The Sharks ripped off seven wins in a row again, but they did another 180 in losing in embarrassing fashion to Dallas and Columbus, two teams out of the playoffs. Where is this team going to end up? The Dudes discuss.
The Sharks have made several trades since the last podcast, trading Ryane Clowe away, and getting Scott Hannan and Raffi Torres in three different deals. The Dudes break it all down on this very eventful trade deadline day.
Douglas Murray is the first casualty of the “rebuild” or “refresh” or whatever Doug Wilson wants to call it. Yet the Sharks win a tough game in Anaheim; is this enough to get the boys rolling again, or will they revert to their subaverage ways?
The Sharks are still reeling, and now there are rumors that Dan Boyle (among others) are on the trading block. The losses keep coming, the goals do not, and the Dudes are no happier than they were last week.
The poor play continues, and Mike and Doug are just about fed up with it all. Very few positives to see, and clearly the fanbase is getting restless. Is it time for a complete rebuild?
The Sharks (and perhaps Todd McLellan) are on the razor’s edge between complete failure and not. They barely beat the hapless Avs, but there are some signs of life.
