David Perron’s continued recovery from a concussion suffered last November is going so slowly that he’s going to miss training camp with the Blues.

With the moves the Sharks have made to shake things up, everyone’s getting a little dreamy about just how coach Todd McLellan will set up his lines.

Today’s free agent frenzy should be fun, but what if Zdeno Chara, Joe Thornton, Alex Semin and Patrice Bergeron were available?

Sean Couturier is a big body center who has excellent vision and hands. He’s responsible in his own zone, can grind with the best of them, and is one of the best face-off guys in this year’s draft. If this were the pre-lockout NHL, scouts would be drooling all over him (more than they are)…

There are a ton of differences between Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo and Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki, but Luongo could follow in Dirk’s footsteps by shedding an antiquated “choker” label one night after the German basketball star did the same.

With the Sharks out of the playoffs, we now know the injuries that Joe Thornton, Dany Heatley, Ryane Clowe and Jason Demers dealt with. Win or lose, it validates the impression that hockey players are tough.

Another year and another loss in the Western Conference finals for the Sharks. What went wrong? You mean stuff other than the Sedins, right? There’s a couple things.

Last night’s Game 5 series clincher by Vancouver gives us the chance to look back on the performances (or lack there of) from Roberto Luongo, Ryan Kesler, Joe Thornton, and Dany Heatley.
May 24, 2011, 5:23 PM EDT
Even with Joe Thornton in the lineup for Game 5, it’s clear that other Sharks players must step up to keep their hopes alive.
May 23, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT
While Joe Thornton declared that he was going to play Game 5 no matter what, now his coach is expecting him to suit up as well.
May 23, 2011, 9:15 AM EDT
Five thoughts today looks through the job the Sedins are doing to take advantage of a weaker defense while we wonder aloud about where in the world has Dany Heatley been.

While the Sharks have no official update on Joe Thornton’s condition after getting banged up thanks to a hit from Raffi Torres, Thornton’s playing doctor for himself.
May 22, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT
The Sharks may be without captain Joe Thornton for Game 5 on Tuesday after he was knocked out of today’s Game 4 loss by Raffi Torres after a wicked hit in the third period.
May 22, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT
The Sharks and Canucks switched roles from Game 3 to Game 4, as special teams fueled Vancouver’s 4-2 win. San Jose finds themselves down 3-1 in the series with their captain Joe Thornton’s health in question.

One of the biggest stories of the playoffs has been Joe Thornton’s supposed transformation into a true playoff performer. Yet if you look at his numbers with San Jose, the change hasn’t been as drastic as many believe.

It might be the day of rapture, but we’re soldiering ahead and giving you five thoughts on last night’s Game 3 from the Western Conference finals highlighting Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, and Kevin Bieksa among others.
May 19, 2011, 1:04 AM EDT
Vancouver dominated in Game 2 earning a 7-3 win over a Sharks team that looked slow, frustrated, and dumb all at once.
May 17, 2011, 9:26 PM EDT
It might seem odd that Joe Thornton asked Ryan Kesler to drop the gloves during the first puck drop of Game 1, but this post reveals that Jumbo Joe has done that before.
May 16, 2011, 12:03 PM EDT
We’ve got some thoughts on sagging third period efforts, diving, and the Sedins getting the breakout game they needed right off the bat.
May 15, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT
The Canucks wore down the Sharks in the third period to take a 3-2 win and 1-0 series lead. This post recaps that exciting game.
