Solutions to San Jose Sharks' Biggest Problems Early in 2013-14
With a 10-1-1 record, Joe Thornton's San Jose Sharks have had plenty of reasons to smile. But it hasn't been all smooth sailing for San Jose.

Well, it took them longer than every other NHL team, but the 2013-14 San Jose Sharks finally look the least bit human.
