The role of backup goaltender can be as tough of job as they come in the NHL. At any moment, their number can be called, requiring a high level of play after coming in cold off the bench. Assuming that backup role in 2011-12, Thomas Greiss played 19 games collecting 9 wins for the Sharks. Some of Greiss' relief efforts were quite stellar, notably a 29 save performance against Pittsburgh on November 3 to get a shootout victory. Greiss also showed off some late game heroics later in the season when he won the first game in Sharks history by a goalie who entered the game in the third period or later when trailing.

As NHL hockey fans we often hear of the revered “Original Six” days of Montreal, Toronto, Boston, New York, Chicago and Detroit. It’s always said this was "real hockey", "old-time hockey”, but it’s not that simple.

The NHL first saw light for the 1917-18 season. That first year the league was composed of just four teams, the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Arenas, Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Wanderers. But by season’s end the Wanderers folded due to the fact that their arena had burnt to the ground

My wife Colleen Moraga-Baker is an amazing woman. I am lucky man and know it. She took me on a trip for my birthday (which was last week) so we could get some one-on-one time before the season started.

The trip was planned back in April and at the time there was no way to know if there would be a lockout. Whether there is a work stoppage or not, getting away to a secluded island and beautiful place has been amazing.

While laying on the beach the other day she remarked that even on vacation I still talk about hockey and that I truly love the sport and am passionate about it. I guess it's in my blood and always has been, going back to playing hockey in my basement as soon as I was old enough to hold a stick, playing street hockey on Saginaw Crescent in Nepean, Ontario in the freezing cold, or skating on the outdoor rinks or Rideau Canal in Ottawa as a kid.

Then she asked me what I thought was the best part of my job. Being a radio hockey analyst is more of a lifestyle occupation that I happen to love. So here is what I came up with regarding why I have such an awesome job:

5. Teaching

I love being around the game of hockey and one of my passions is teaching and trying to explain something that is difficult to do, sound easy. Everyday I learn something new about hockey and am always working on becoming a better teacher.

4. The San Jose Sharks

I fell in love with this organization when I came here in 1993. The people, the city, the fans, the name of the team, the colors, the logo, the mascot, and nothing has changed since. The Sharks are a class organization from top to bottom, and I'm glad to be a part of this organization from a historical standpoint and as a current broadcaster.

Douglas Murray brings an unquestionable presence to the Sharks blueline. The 6-3, 240 pound native of Sweden has layed out some of the heaviest, bone crushing hits throughout his seven years in San Jose. This past season was no different as Murray paced the Sharks with 126 hits. Murray also set a Sharks franchise record for most hits registered in a single regular season game, with 10.

I had the opportunity to emcee a sports celebrity dinner last week. I have emceed this particular event for the last 6 years and the proceeds have helped build a new sports and cultural centre for the town of Warman just a few minutes outside my home town of Saskatoon.

This year the keynote speaker was Hall of Fame goaltender Grant Fuhr. The great Wendel Clark and future superstar Jordan Eberle were also in attendance. During and after the dinner we got to talking about today's NHL players.

Grant Fuhr, in his keynote speech, talked about his days with the Edmonton Oilers when they were dominating the NHL. He spoke about team chemistry. He said that in today's NHL every team is trying to manufacture team chemistry.
