2013 NHL Season: 5 Bold Predictions for the San Jose Sharks

The San Jose Sharks are at a crossroads right now as the condensed 2012-13 NHL season gets under way.

Team Teal remains one of the most talented clubs in the league with highly touted players such as Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Dan Boyle and Brent Burns.

But despite having a deep and talented team for practically the past decade, the Sharks have never even reached the Stanley Cup Final. Many critics feel something is missing, and that element may be leadership or some other intangible quality that causes teams to underachieve in the clutch.

The leaders of this team are now on the wrong side of 30. Boyle is 36, Thornton, Brad Stuart and Marleau are 33 and Martin Havlat is 31. If this year isn't a successful one, this could be the last chance this group has to win together.
