  1. When you give up the 3rd least goals in the NHL, when you have the reigning favorite to win the Norris playing half the game, a Selke finalist and the guy who led the NHL in plus/minus, your defense is not suspect. It might not be as good as it was in the previous 4 years, but it was good enough to win.

    Quick was not the money goalie he has been in years past. Toffoli, Carter and Lucic disappeared as a dominant line. Everybody across the board underperformed.

    On top of that, when every game is one goal game, you can’t afford having 3 or 4 horrible calls going against you that result in goals. Just nothing went their way. That’s how it goes sometimes. The Sharks are a great team. You aren’t going to dominate a team like that for 60 minutes every game. You are going to get outplayed at times. You have to want it to get through that adversity.

    They are not trading Dustin Brown. They would have to retain half his salary to get it done, and it is worth the difference to keep him when you consider he is the most physical guy on the team and their leader. If it was not for Brown, they would’ve gotten swept. Move Gaborik & Muzzin for a top 2 d-man.
