Hockey Writing Cliches Part I

TSN's 08-09 team analysis of the day is my beloved San Jose Sharks. It contains the following sentence: "The Ducks looked weary after their season-opening trip to London and the Sharks smelled blood in the water with a feeding frenzy on opponents."

 All the "tools to use when writing about the San Jose Sharks" boxes are checked: blood in the water, feeding frenzy. Get it? Because they're called the Sharks.

I think "Thrashes" is the best cliche we have. EXCEPT THE 82 HOCKEY CLICHES OF COURSE! Which, really, are best of all!
