    SAN JOSE, Calif. Jordan 6 Black University Blue . -- The San Jose Sharks never were closer to that elusive Stanley Cup title than they were last season when a long playoff run ended two wins short of a championship.Even with the core of that team back for another shot at the Cup, the Sharks know they have a long road ahead if they want to take that next step.The tough part is you dont get to start where you ended last year, coach Peter DeBoer said. You have to start right at the bottom of the mountain again and start climbing.No team in the past eight seasons has made it back to the final after losing the previous season. But at least the Sharks return all of the players who carried the team last season.High-scoring captain Joe Pavelski and playmaking center Joe Thornton will once again anchor the top line, do-everything center Logan Couture should be healthier after missing 30 games last season and shutdown defender Marc-Edouard Vlasic anchors a strong blue line with the dangerous Brent Burns.Thrown in goalie Martin Jones, who was stellar in his first full season as a starter, and the experience gained from that long playoff run and the Sharks are confident heading into the season.Weve been there, we didnt get what we wanted, forward Patrick Marleau said. We have a better understanding of what it takes to get there and how much more youll have to give to get that ultimate goal.Here are some things to watch for with the Sharks this season:HERTLS HOME: Tomas Hertls game took off last season when he was moved to a wing on the top line with Thornton and Pavelski. Hertl struggled to produce points when he centered his own line but could get another shot this year. If Hertl can play third-line center, the Sharks will have some of the best depth down the middle of any team with Thornton, Couture and Chris Tierney also at center. That will provide a boost against other top teams and help avoid the mismatches that hurt San Jose against the deeper Penguins in the final.DEFENSIVE DEPTH: The Sharks have top defensive pairs in the defensive-minded Vlasic and Justin Braun and the more offensively inclined Burns and Paul Martin. It was the third defensive pair of Brenden Dillon and Roman Polak that was exposed at times in the postseason, especially in the final. The signing of David Schlemko to replace Polak gives the Sharks a better puck mover on that pairing and could help Dillon boost his production.He fits where the game is at and where its going, general manager Doug Wilson said. The ability to get the puck up the ice, get it up to the hands of our forwards is important and we feel like Schlemko certainly helps in that area.FAMILIARITY: The Sharks took a few months to find their stride in DeBoers first year as coach and were near the bottom of the Western Conference in January. But they were one of the top teams after that and hope that can carry over for a faster start this season because of their familiarity with the system.You can just go out there and kind of react as opposed to last year youre learning and learning new bodies into systems, a new foundation, forward Joel Ward said. So hopefully the foundation is there from last year.YOUTH BE SERVED: The Sharks are hoping for a spark from a few young players fighting to crack the lineup at forward. Barclay Goodrow, Nikolay Goldobin and Kevin Labanc are among the players who could get a look early. Timo Meier, a first-round pick in 2015, was expected to make the biggest impact but will miss the start of the season after getting mononucleosis during training camp.BACKUP GOALIE: While Martin Jones proved he could carry the load in his first season as an NHL starter, the Sharks would like to find a capable backup to ease Jones workload. He thrived late in the season after James Reimer was acquired at the trade deadline. Aaron Dell, who spent last year in the AHL, will get the first shot as Jones backup this season. Jordan 32 Low Win Like 96 . Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. Jordan 6 Unc Pre Order . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. http://www.jordan32rossocorsa.com/ . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary.Sebastian Coe has rejected claims that London 2012 may have been the dirtiest Olympic Games in history. Coe went on the offensive after another week of doping scandals rocked the Olympic movement.The International Olympic Committee announced on Thursday that 23 athletes who competed in London have tested positive from 265 retested samples. That is top of over 30 previous failed tests from competitors who had been caught either during the Games or since.  The high percentage of apparent doping offences sparked suggestions on Friday that London was rife with cheating, but Coe denies that is the case.Lord Coe, now the president of world athletics governing body the IAAF, served as the London 2012 organising committee chairman. Lord Sebastian Coe denies 2012 was the dirtiest Games The former middle-distance track star claims in the Sunday Telegraph that at the time of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, where he competed and won 1500m gold, technology was prehistoric and says many athletes would pick and base their schedules on the athletics circuit in large part on the avoidance of testing.The IOC has said its reanalysis programme is ongoing, with the possibility of more results in the weeks to come.Coe wrote in his newspaper column: It would be delusional to say the London Games was in the words of many yesterday dirtier than Games before.He added: The message from Friday was not only, or eeven actually, about interpreting trends. Jordan 6 Unc For Sale. The big message was for athletes to recognise that just because they may be ahead of the testing technology at a particular moment in their career, it does not mean they can lie easily in their beds until excitable grandchildren pore over Olympic medals in their dotage.They will be caught. They will then have the discomfort of explaining to those grandchildren why they no longer possess those medals. More is being done to catch cheats than ever before. Anti-doping test samples We will not stop collecting data, sharing information, building profiles, developing testing techniques or calling out and prosecuting cheats in our efforts to protect and promote clean sport. The Rio 2016 Games will be cleaner for it. That should be the story.The new findings cover five different sports and six international federations, and were all based on intelligence-gathering that began in August 2015.Russia has said eight of its athletes are among the 23 to have tested positive on reanalysis.All athletes found to have infringed the anti-doping rules will be banned from competing at the Rio Olympics this summer.
