We examine what type of defenseman Jiříček projects to be in the National Hockey League and how he compares to his brother, who was a top-five pick. We also discuss why Jiříček makes sense for the Sharks at 14 and how soon he could be in North America.

The definitive Sharks podcast!

I’ve been listening to J.D. (the Tank Commander) for a while and he exudes two things when it comes to Sharks hockey: passion and knowledge. The thing that really sets his podcast apart is the deep dive he takes on individual players, especially prospects. I’ve learned a ton about Team Teal’s options as we approach the most important draft in team history.

Keep up the great work!

Great podcast

Love the analytics, it’s positive, which is helpful for a team who’s not very good. Keep up the great analytics and keep talking about the Cuba.

Best Sharks Podcast Out There

JD does a great job of breaking things down and explaining how the team got here, and where they could be going. Though I don’t always agree with him, I appreciate his through knowledge and background information, you can tell he does his research. WAY too many adds, but we all have to make a buck don’t we? Perfect length of episodes too! Good to listen to for a work out or on a lunch break. One of the few podcasts I have to listen to every day.
