San Jose Sharks 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

Last year, the San Jose Sharks were one of the worst teams in the NHL. This year, the Sharks are outdoing themselves, with a win percentage of .313 after 48 games compared to last year’s final number of .366. Since making the 2019 Western Conference Final, San Jose will end with its fifth consecutive losing season. The Sharks made the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, which was the peak moment in franchise history. That being said, San Jose was a highly successful franchise, missing the playoffs only four times from 1994 through 2019. However, it appears as if future success is a long way away.

San Jose Sharks History

Founded in 1991 as the first NHL expansion team since the 1979 NHL-WHA merger, the San Jose Sharks were the league’s second attempt at establishing a foothold in San Francisco Bay area. From the start, the Sharks have been a success. The term “model franchise” is often used in describing the San Jose NHL entry.

Since 1998 the Sharks have missed the playoffs just four times. Their best run was in 2016, when they made it to the Stanley Cup Final after several teams with far better records failed to get there. Top players in Sharks history include Doug Wilson and Owen Nolan, Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, and Joe Pavelski.

The Sharks have had good fan support through the years but no margin for error. The San Jose market has endless entertainment options and limitless sports dates available on the calendar. Thus, the pressure is always on to win. Patches of empty seats have started to show at home games and serve as a warning of what will happen if San Jose doesn’t start winning again soon.

The Sharks have played at the SAP Center since 1993. Commonly referred to as “The Shark Tank,” the SAP Center boasts one of the loudest crowds in hockey. Fan loyalty will be tested this year with a continuing rebuild.
