20. San Jose Sharks

Previous: No. 13

How have the Sharks played in just three preseason games? What are they trying to hide from us? Oh, right: They have Brandon Bollig and Brandon Mashinter on their roster. The top four on defense is solid here, led by Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Brent Burns. But with Patrick Marleau gone and the Joe Pavelski/Joe Thornton connection aging and leading their forwards, the Sharks could see a decline this season.
