Are the San Jose Sharks teasing us again?
The Blackhawks (2010, '13), Kings ('12) and Bruins ('11) were on the cusp before they broke through and won the Cup. Anaheim ('07), Carolina ('06), Tampa Bay ('04) and Dallas (1999) managed to put together one great run to take the title. It's fun to dream for snakebitten teams like the Sharks. If you're a fan in San Jose, there are certainly enough reasons to peek between the fingers that are covering your eyes to see if this is finally your year.
