Are you f*cking kidding me? The San Jose Sharks just signed Patrick Marleau to a one year deal. He will most likely play with Jumbo Joe Throton. If this doesn’t propel the Sharks into the Stanley Cup Finals then I just don’t believe in the hockey gods anymore.
The boy has come home in the twilight of his career in an attempt to win the one trophy that has eluded him his entire career. Alongside his best bud and linemate Joe Thorton. This is some Mighty Ducks, Disney Bull Shit and I am here for it.
Tomorrow will most likely be Patty’s first game back in teal. And Sunday against the Calgary Flames will be his first time back in the Shark Tank. The tears will be flowing on Sunday. I have every intention of watching that game and you should too.
Look realistically he does add a little depth to the Sharks. A team that is desperately searching for some a spark after losing their last four games. If they drop this last game on the road to the Chicago Blackhawks they will be five and 0. But I guarantee that when Jumbo and Patty take the ice together in the Tank that they will win their 6th game of the season.
You can hammer the Vegas odds, because there is just too much good juju for them to lose that game.
