Sharpie’s season got off to a rough start when an emergency appendectomy caused him to miss all of training camp.  Later in the season, a slash from Detroit’s Jiri Hudler caused him to miss 8 games with a broken wrist.  Despite all of this Sharp scored 33 goals, his 2nd straight 30 plus goal season and 3rd of his career.  He lead the team in goals, plus/minus and shots.  His 8 game winning goals was also a team high.  Only Marian Hossa (9) had more power play goals than Sharpie.   Sharp’s assist numbers really picked up during the final month of the season when he clicked on a new line with Hossa and Marcus Kruger.  The season ended with Sharp being a complete disappointment in the playoffs.  Except for deflecting in a Brent Seabrook slap shot for a tying goal in Game 2, Sharp was invisible during the entire series versus the Coyotes.  Sharpie has proved he can score in bunches and his a big part of the Blackhawks’ “core.”
