DOH 288 – And It Gets Worse
The Sharks play 5 of the worst teams in the NHL, and go 1-4. That’s bad, but the Sharks do make two roster moves the Dudes agree with.
DOH 287 – Always Sunny In San Jose
The Sharks lose to Vancouver, Chicago, and Florida, and the Dudes have trouble keeping it sunny, despite the win against the Lightning.

The season is only one week away, so it’s time for the final roster predictions, and a full NHL preview.
DOH 283 – 2014 Preseason Begins
The preseason has started, with the Sharks playing a split-squad game against Vancouver. It’s way too early to get any questions answered about this team, but that doesn’t stop the Dudes from guessing.
DOH 282 – Rookie Games With Meaning
The Sharks lost their two rookie games against the Ducks, and even though it’s hard to evaluate talent in these games, they have more meaning this year. The Sharks will likely suit one or more rookies on opening night, so there are spots available....

The Sharks are going into training camp with no captain and no assistants, and Raffi Torres could be out for the year (again). All sunshine and rainbows in Sharks land!
DOH 278 – July
It’s the middle of July, with very little Sharks news. The Dudes abide.
DOH 277 – Bewilderment
The Dudes went to the prospects game, but with a “team for tomorrow”, the Sharks signed Scott Hannan, and now say they need to make the playoffs. Whaaa?
DOH 276 – Scott. John Scott.
In a move that no one can explain (or justify), the Sharks sign pugilist John Scott. The Dudes talk about that an all the activity during the draft and UFA day. P.S. Listen to the end.
DOH 275 – Mark Purdy and the Movable Sharks

DOH 274 – Four Big Pieces of News
Even in the sleepy period between the Cup Final and the draft, the Sharks release four big pieces of news, in short- Stalock, Brown, Remenda, and TV. The Dudes talk about it all.

DOH 271 – Postmortem
The Dudes react to the worst playoff loss in Sharks history with two weeks’ worth of perspective. It ain’t pretty.
DOH 270 – Worst. Outcome. Ever.
The Sharks become only the fourth team since 1939 to blow a 3-0 series lead; the Dudes and Sharks fans everywhere despair.
