San Jose Sharks (0-2-0, 0 pts)

A fall from grace, and not a blissful one has become the story of the San Jose Sharks. There are a ton of fan favorites on this team, but they are slowly creeping into the basement of relevancy in a division that includes some of the league’s top talent. Joe Pavelski is still really good, Brent Burns is still really good, Joe Thornton is old, but still really good.

The Sharks just looked tired over the first two games and the season just started. Martin Jones is going to have to be spectacular for San Jose to get things going and I am not sure he can make that happen alone. However, the future schedule is favorable with just two games this week, both in the Shark Tank, against the Sabres and Islanders. They will be a one of the teams I expect moves around a lot on this list, but if the opening week is an indicator of how things will go in San Jose this year, it will not be a pleasant site.
