Trade Me!

April 21, 2010

As the world comes crumbling down it’s only inevitable to feel pressure from your inner sink-or-swim. All the pieces are in place, everything should work out perfectly, though for some reason it doesn’t. Is there a lack of communication? A difference in philosophy between those giving the orders and those receiving them? When the team is made up of similar levels of talent who all have a common goal, shouldn’t the ship constantly sail in the appropriate direction? Apparently not. I have a soft spot in my heart for the players, those that make mistakes so glaring that even the obvious attempt at an honest effort is little to deter the critics. Like scoring a goal on your own net in overtime in the playoffs, sometimes things simply don’t work out, and no matter how hard you try, things just get worse.

Perhaps the answer is to change situations, place a team-member on a different line in an attempt to generate some chemistry. The problem that will then arise though is that the player is already one known for having difficulty adjusting to new surroundings, and this change could very well have the reverse of the intended effect. No, the issues are deep within the primary players, and it’s unlikely anyone will have the intelligence or patience to extract that pure skill long enough for the chance to win the drink.


Dany Heatley played on the third line last night. Think he’s asking for a trade? This article was about the San Jose Sharks and nothing else.

    San Jose and Luongo have something in common..can’t handle the pressure. How can a team/player be that good just to blow it when it really, really counts? I don’t understand cause I’ve never been in that position, but it is pretty sad.

    Go Phoenix!
