Poll: How does San Jose bounce back in 2014-15?

We’re sure San Jose Sharks fans have heard enough about how last season ended. Getting bounced from the playoffs in the first round in seven games by the Los Angeles Kings after being up 3-0 in the series is a cruel memory for a fan base that’s dying to get to the Stanley Cup Final.

How to respond to such a gut-wrenching loss is what’s proving to be more dramatic for the Sharks. The offseason started with rumors of big changes coming only to see not much change at all. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau weren’t traded, Martin Havlat was sent out of town, and John Scott was brought on board to play sheriff.

So just how are the Sharks going to rebound from last season’s brutal exit?

Will Antti Niemi rebound or will Alex Stalock take the job in goal and carry them to the promised land? Will they run into the Kings again in the playoffs? Will they even make the playoffs? Your job is to tell us in the poll how you think things will turn out for Todd McLellan’s team.

    It’s shark’s day on PHT you clown, and I for one am surprised anyone thinks they are even going to make the final. Curse of Jumbo Joe lives on. Bruins will win the cup.

    Poll could’ve had other choices, doesnt have to be about choking in the playoffs. You’re part of the reason why hockey fans hate the Bruins. Go take a lap

    They should start their rebuild by bringing back Scotty Gomez.

      Nice one! Man, well thought out and well executed. Your wit is only outshone by your maturity.

    The rebuild is taking place by bringing in John Scott. We’re gonna have the most penalty minutes it’s not even gonna be fit. Thanks to the likes of Scott, Torres, Brown, Desjardins, Burish and Wingels.
