    San Jose Sharks Fire David Quinn

    The San Jose Sharks have fired Head Coach David Quinn after two seasons. React to why the news was initially surprising, why it makes sense for Mike Grier and the Sharks to move on now, and how important the next hire is for the Sharks so they don't become the next perpetually rebuilding team. Next, what did Mike Grier say in his media availability, why Quinn's record wasn't the deciding factor in the move, and if this was more about connecting with the players in the dressing room? Also, examine John McCarthy's future and other nuggets from Mike Grier's availability. Finally, explore five potential replacements for the San Jose Sharks head coaching position, including Ryan Warsofsky, David Carle, and Jay Woodcroft.

    It's time for the first Locked on Sharks NHL Mock Draft.

    Mikael Granlund was on the verge of being bought out by the Pittsburgh Penguins before his trade to the San Jose Sharks. What a difference in scenery can do for a career. Granlund posted a career-high in time on ice and led the Sharks in points. Can Granlund continue to replicate Tomas Hertl's production? Review Granlund's season and what made him so successful this year, and look at the analytics behind his production. Then, ask if Granlund can continue to replicate Hertl's production for a fraction of the cost and with more flexibility on his contract and why he should be able to do so. Finally, look at what is next for Granlund as the Sharks enter the offseason and if Granlund will be the Sharks' last good trade piece.

    The San Jose Sharks enter the 2024 offseason with several big questions as they look to build after one of the worst seasons in modern NHL history. Look at three big questions that Mike Grier and the Sharks face this offseason, including how they infuse more quality NHL talent onto the roster. Discuss why it's important for Grier to add quality veteran pieces this offseason and the latest news on whether Will Smith will sign his ELC. Then, examine the next big question about the Sharks: how do they handle the questions around Logan Couture and Marc-Edouard Vlasic? Start with Couture and why, despite positive expectations around Couture's future, the Sharks need to prepare for the worst-case scenario and then examine if buying out Vlasic is a viable option as the Sharks look to relieve the logjam on the blueline. Finally, the Sharks should ask if the right people are in the right situation at the right time, with Sharks head coach David Quinn and San Jose Barracuda head coach John McCarthy.

    Devin Cooley Interview

    San Jose Sharks goalie Devin Cooley joins the show to discuss his path back to San Jose. We start with the craziness of the past month, who his favorite player growing up was, and who is on his goalie Mt. Rushmore. We discuss being a walk-on at the University of Denver, taking advantage of every opportunity, and his early days in the AHL and ECHL with Nashville and Florida. We also converse about the trade that brought him to San Jose, winning his first game, if Thomas Speer is a wizard and the potential of an extension with the Sharks. Finally, we get to know Devin off the ice and learn about his flexibility, owning a rabbit, and socks with skates.

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.

Best Sharks Podcast

As a new fan I was looking for a podcast to help me understand what I was watching. JD has not only made me sound really smart when talking to friends, he gets really deep into the stats and makes it all understandable. He is super knowledgeable but keeps if fun!
