The Good, the Bad and the Ugly for 2013-14 San Jose Sharks

Clint Eastwood starred in the classic spaghetti Western, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

"The good, the bad and the ugly" is not a unique theme; however, it is special to the Bay Area where fans of the San Jose Sharks reside.

The title was used for a spaghetti Western classic that Clint Eastwood starred in. He is from the Bay Area that has also been the setting of many of his movies, including the entire Dirty Harry series. Thus the man most associated with that theme's popularity is a fixture of the region. 

Regardless of his diatribe against a chair that was in opposition to most of the region's views, he has a lot to be proud of. His achievements reflect well on his home.

He is one of the finest artists in cinema. Directing classics like Unforgiven, he took a completely new look at a familiar genre upon which he built most of his reputation. It broke down the glorifying of gun-fighting and examined one man's growth in a role that Eastwood played spectacularly.

He is also an accomplished jazz pianist, restaurateur (I found Hog's Breath a lovely dining experience) and former mayor of Carmel, Calif.

What better theme is there to use when taking a look at the Sharks, a team residing a mere 75 minutes north of Eastwood's jurisdiction?

Examining the team's outlook for the 2013-14 NHL season, this slideshow details the significant good, bad and ugly facing San Jose. Some of those areas have more things to list than others, but all have more than one.
