I was going through the sharks message boards and I couldn't help but ROFL when I saw this picture (considering they are the ones that are experts at choking):

The full thread is at http://fans.sharks.n...d-1-vs-canucks/ in case you want to get a few laughs. I have to admit some of them are pretty funny.

The Canucks and Sharks are the two biggest post-lockout (2004-2005) playoff chokers. Interesting to see how the first round will play out

It really doesn't take that long -- all you do is take a few screenshots and splice them together.

i know how photoshop works. it's kind of what i do for my job, but i'm saying i wouldn't dedicate my time for something so trivial. i've made my share of parodys, but at a certain point, you kind of grow up and think, what's the point

Isn't every team a choker? Even those that didn't make the big show because they weren't good enough to get there anyway. Every team is a "choker" if they don't win the ultimate prize.

So according to the Sharks we're chokers, but near the bottom of the image there's a line that says "The Vancouver Canucks and the San Jose Sharks have so much in common." ...nice try!

well don't say that. there's actually logic in that, but people just don't want to accept the fact

The Canucks have 6 division titles and 2 president's trophies in that span, but 0 Stanley Cups. That regular season repertoire is much stronger than most of those other teams.

Well so are the Bruins for blowing a 0-3 series lead against the flyers. However they won the cup the year after.

I really don't expect much this year in the playoffs. This team is not near as good as 2 years ago. Next year we need to get rid of some dead weight,a total rebuild might be in the works. Booth the entire 3rd and 4th line, and hate to say it but Kessler may have to go. The defence is not too bad, with the exception of Ballard and Edler, they need to play somewhere else.
It may be time to rebuild.

Sad but true. I hope we can get rid of that title.

If we had lost against Chicago after going up 3-0 and winning the President's trophy, then that would be worthy of a 'worst choker' title.

But we didn't.

As it were, the Sharks have little ground to stand on when calling any other team a choke artist. But what else are they going to do? Start ranting and raving on a team twitter account?

Yup, he's one hit away from missing another 25 games. I'm getting tired of this. Look at a guy like Burrows, he takes a beating every game, and keeps coming back.

A SJ fan making fun of chokers is like a Columbus fan making fun of a team for not making the playoffs.
