New goalie, motivated veterans give Sharks optimism

Sunday, 08.09.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2015-16

SAN JOSE -- The San Jose Sharks' streak of making the Stanley Cup Playoffs ended at 10 seasons in 2014-15, but they expect to be back in the postseason under new coach Peter DeBoer.

The Sharks have been in transition the past two seasons, adding young talent to an established core of veterans.

Here are four reasons for the Sharks to be optimistic:

After missing playoffs, Sharks turn to DeBoer, Jones

Sunday, 08.09.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2015-16

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout August.

SAN JOSE -- Following a historic collapse against the Los Angeles Kings in the 2014 Western Conference First Round, the San Jose Sharks missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs entirely last season for the first time since 2003.

Changes were inevitable after San Jose's dismal showing, and the biggest one came first.

Todd McLellan, the winningest coach in San Jose history, parted ways with the Sharks after seven seasons in what he and general manager Doug Wilson called a mutual decision. Wilson hired former Florida Panthers and New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer to replace McLellan, who became coach of the Edmonton Oilers.

San Jose Sharks fantasy hockey outlook

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

As part of NHL.com's offseason 30 in 30 package, fantasy hockey insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen will break down each team's fantasy landscape. They will look at the players at the top of the ranks, an undervalued player, an overvalued player, a deep sleeper (players likely ranked outside the top 200 overall players) and the goalie outlook for each NHL team.

Leading the way: Joe Pavelski

Pavelski is the only player League-wide with 70-plus points, a plus-10 or better, 30-plus power-play points and 200-plus shots on goal in each of the past two seasons. Even as his shooting percentage dipped from 2013-14 (18.2) to 2014-15 (14.2) and the San Jose Sharks missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs, his fantasy stock didn't waver. His versatility is well-documented with experience at each of the three forward positions and in all situations. If he falls to the third round of a fantasy draft, he should be your priority.
