SAN JOSE SHARKSLAST SEASON: 46-30-6, 98 points. Third place Pacific Division. Lost to Pittsburgh in Stanley Cup Final.COACH: Peter DeBoer. (second season, ninth NHL season).ADDED: F Mikkel Boedker, D David Schlemko, F Marcus Sorensen.LOST: D Roman Polak, F Nick Spaling, F Dainius Zubrus, G James Reimer.PLAYER TO WATCH: F Tomas Hertl. Hertls knee injury in Game 2 of the final against the Penguins played a role in San Jose falling two games short of a championship.

If the new additions provide the spark and the older core maintains its high level from the postseason, the Sharks should be able to contend for a title again. ' ' '
