Hot or not, this Sharks club has been built to last
The San Jose Sharks have passed their early-season tests with straight A's, and they're approaching their midterms with brimming confidence. Unfairly or not, however, the only grade that will matter will come from their finals."Regardless of what we do during the regular season, we're going to be judged, more than likely, on the playoff run," said Sharks first-year coach Todd McLellan, who grew accustomed to those standards while working as an assistant for three seasons in Detroit before arriving in San Jose. "I'm hoping I can use some of those experiences to help us get over the hump here."
