Discussion Questions

  1. If you had to choose a preferred team between the other two California NHL teams, would it be the Sharks or the Ducks?
  2. Martin Jones: actual human or very realistic looking android man who is good at goalie-ing and maybe not much else?
  3. If a Kings player chose to go to the Sharks in free agency, how would you feel? Would your opinion change if it was someone at the end of his career, or if it was a marginal/fourth line-type player?
