I just woke up this morning to hear the news that a Sharks’ fan like myself should dread; our mighty goalie for the team, Evgeni Nabokov, after 15 years in the league (most of which in San Jose), has retired from hockey. He had been a dominant goalie for our team and I think I speak for all of my brethren as fans of this upstart team; you will always be “The Man” and I wish you continued success in whatever endeavor life throws at you.
# 20 should be retired, as the man signed with the team that gave him his start just to retire AS A SAN JOSE SHARK, which shows class and dignity unsurpassed by very few in the industry.
We will miss you in net and, hopefully soon, we can win a Cup in your honor…Thank you for fifteen years as our netminder…
