Cheechoo Is Hot

The San Jose Sharks have been a pretty good team in the NHL lately. This is something I predicted. After the Joe Thornton trade, this become even more likely. One of the beneficiaries of San Jose's resurgence and Joe Thornton's acquisition is Jonathan Cheechoo. In fact, Cheechoo has the most goals in the league sin the December 1st Joe Thornton trade. Cheechoo has 16 goals in this time. In October and November combined, before Thornton was acquired, he only managed seven goals. Jonathan Cheechoo is a great pool pick up for the remainder of the season.

Don't forget about unknown Nils Ekman. Since being added to Thornton's line, Ekman's gone absolutely crazy. In his last 5 games he has 2 goals and 10 assists, and he's a +6 during that span. Seems like Joe is making all his linemates better.
