The San Jose Sharks have four important questions to ask themselves as they prepare for the 2019-2020 season a month and a half away.
For the past decade, the San Jose Sharks remain fastened in a constant loop.
There is a pattern forming every year where we as Sharks fans start the year having high expectations but eventually slowly get dragged through the same painful sequence of events. Start the year strong, end up finishing in the top three of the division, and then eventually come across a hot team or a string of injuries in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Survive a round, or two, or three, but ultimately the San Jose Sharks fall short of their season-long quest, and must start all over again, refueling the fire with trades and minimal high round picks as the calendar pages go by.
It’s time for a change in this ever-growing pattern, and it begins by answering these four crucial questions after general manager Doug Wilson and San Jose’s front office tackled the tough test of reshaping their roster in the off-season.
