Power Rankings: Top 10 Late (or Overtime) Goals

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

It might be hard to believe, but sometimes players forget the score of the game. Even in the final few seconds of a close, incredibly important game. Crazy, right? 

In honor of this completely hypothetical situation that certainly did not happen last night, we decided to celebrate the ten times this season the Sharks definitely knew that the game was tied (or needed to be tied up) late in the game. 

10. Labanc scores in overtime

Power Rankings: Worst Knights

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Sharks are awesome. That is an indisputable fact of life. On the other hand, knights are a remnant of an outdated mode of society often romanticized for no real reason.

So in honor of the second round matchup with the Vegas Golden Knights, we've decided to take a look at some of the most famous knights in pop culture and explain why they are actually bad. 

T8. Dark Knight (aka Batman)

First of all, Batman doesn't have any superpowers outside of a ton of money, so not sure how he's considered a superhero (before there are any arguments, Tony Stark/Iron Man also falls under this). Second, Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy - while a great deconstruction of the superhero genre to make it realistic - has all but ruined the DC cinematic universe. Not every superhero needs to be dark and broody and murder-y, you know.

Power Rankings: Worst Ducks

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Pop culture is filled with awesome sharks, from Bruce in Jaws to Bruce in Finding Nemo to Jabberjaw to Street Sharks to the literally limitless number of made-for-TV shark disaster movies. 

Ducks? Not so much.

So in honor of the first round matchup with the Anaheim Ducks, we've decided to go through pop culture's most famous ducks and explain to you why they are actually bad. 

∞. The Ugly Duckling

This classic children's story is about how an ugly bird is made fun of by all the other ducklings, but then grows up to be a beautiful swan. 

Even children's fairy tales agree that ducks are obviously inferior.

Power Rankings: Bobbleheads

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Is there a more popular giveaway in sports than a bobblehead? It's where marketing departments can flex their creative muscles and create a very memorable giveaway that will decorate fans' desks or bookshelves.

This season, the San Jose Sharks gave away quite a few bobbleheads in both ticket packages and to every fan in attendance. With the final bobblehead of the season being given away at tomorrow's Fan Appreciation game presented by SAP, sjsharks.com has decided to rank this season's Sharks bobbles. 

6. Brent Burns Camo Suit Bobblehead

The fact that Burns's amazing camo suit bobblehead - complete with hairy beard and removable hat - is at the bottom of these rankings is a testament to the strength of bobbleheads the Sharks marketing department came up with this season.

Power Rankings: Let Me Take A Selfie

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Team photo day: a chance for the finalized roster can come together and take a photo that proves that this is the definitive roster for the 2017-18 season. 

It's also a chance for sjsharks.com to make the players take selfies.

As the Sharks were waiting around to take that perfect team photo, we asked them to take selfies to help pass the time. And some of those selfies were better than others. 

6. Dave Barr

Technically, this isn't a selfie, as it was taken by Johan Hedberg. However, the phone was in selfie mode, so we're counting it. In that, we're including it in this list but it, unfortunately, ranks at the bottom of the selfies taken.

5. Marcus Sorensen, Kevin Labanc, and Dylan DeMelo

Save for DeMelo, these guys are too cool to really smile. Though the framing is good, it's a solid yet unspectacular selfie.

Power Rankings: A Big Year for the Beard

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Happy Birthday Brent Burns! In honor of the bearded beauty's birthday, we're taking a look back at the defenseman's past year. After all, birthdays are a great time to reflect on the year gone by and remember all the cool things that happened.

There's no question that at the age of 32, Brent Burns had a year for the books, so we decided to rank some of the top moments.

Giveaway Items
Burns green suit bobblehead, Burns grill, Burns nutcracker, Burns wine glass, Burns camoflauge suit bobblehead. You name it, it's probably been made for a San Jose Sharks giveaway item. Brent Burns takes the (birthday) cake for inspiring the most giveaway items this past year.

Power Rankings: Punder Years

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

To many internet writers (and would-be comedians), puns are an essential joke format. The group at sjsharks.com and @SanJoseSharks are no different, relying on puns to make the 562nd morning skate photo posted that season seem a bit more exciting. 

So when the Sharks acquired forward Eric Fehr, it's Fehr to say there was a mini-celebration in the basement of SAP Center: more punderful joke opportunities! 

Which got sjsharks.com thinking: which players on the Sharks roster has given use the most opportunities to make these play on words?

7. Tim Heed

Take Heed; this rookie's name has huge pun-tential. 

6. Barclay Goodrow

"Let the good times row. " "That's a good(row) goal!" The equation is easy: have a common English word in your name, it will be used in place of that word.

Power Rankings: Year of the Dog

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Today marks the beginning of the new Lunar New Year, which means it's time for family and red envelopes as everyone celebrates the transition from the Year of the Rooster to the Year of the Dog. 

The Sharks will be fully celebrating Lunar New Year on Sunday, but there's no reason not to kick it off today. As it is the year of the dog, sjsharks.com felt that it'd be the perfect time to celebrate some of the best dogs we've seen over the past year.
