You know, the ones who landed Karlsson.

The San Jose Sharks won the offseason lottery this year, acquiring Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators for...well, not a lot. So yes, the San Jose Sharks are certainly improved from last season, but are they improved enough to finally make a real push toward a Stanley Cup? We’re joined by Sie Morley from Fear The Fin to preview tonight’s home opener against Erik Karlsson’s new team. Topics include:

  • The non-Karlsson offseason moves that have made this team better
  • Brent Burns, 1C?
  • The overall weakness of the Western Conference this season
  • Joe Thornton’s beard
  • The Flyers players that Sharks fans love

Tonight’s game will air at 7PM locally on the NBC Sports Network and, as always, 97.5 The Fanatic on the radio. GET IT BOYS.
