Do the Sharks still have the same bite?

The most unfortunate part about the overreaction of San Jose General Manager Doug Wilson to last year's playoff loss is that we still have to hear about their failure to close out a series against one of the best teams in the league. No brownie points for taking them to seven, or developing a blueprint for how to use speed to beat the Kings (something Maurice and staff might want to watch for during Sunday's contest).

Instead, the narrative is set as an emotional one - the team with the chip on their shoulder hosts the plucky Jets with something to prove. Alternatively, we might note that these teams are built in very similar ways, and get excited for what should be an entertaining show of outrageous athleticism between two big, fast teams.
