Logan Couture believes the Sharks have a nucleus that can win.
The Sharks missed the playoffs for the first time in 11 seasons during the 2014-15 campaign. The new season brings a new coach, Peter DeBoer, along with several new players, Martin Jones, Joel Ward and Paul Martin. But the team will continue to lean on its core, specifically Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. "I talked to (GM) Doug (Wilson) a couple times throughout the summer, and we want to win," Couture said. "San Jose does. That’s our goal. We realize our best players, Jumbo and Patty, are getting a little bit older. I think we have the core to win, and Doug went out and got some very good players. Paul, Martin Jones, Joel, they’re just going to help us." Jul 25 - 9:35 PM

Logan Couture thinks that rather than a coaching change, the Sharks need a culture change.

"Not great," Couture said about the team's culture. "That's my personal opinion, and that's all I'm going to say about it." Although the Sharks missed the playoffs in 2014-15 for the just the first time since the salary cap era began, they've often been seen as underperformers when compared to the talent on their roster. With that in mind, it's easy to buy into the idea that the Sharks have a culture problem. Couture also noted that he was disappointed when the Sharks blowing a 3-0 series lead to Los Angeles in the 2014 playoffs didn't lead to the team being hungrier in 2014-15.

Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Logan Couture doesn't think it should be hard for the Sharks to find motivation despite the fact that they're all-but eliminated from the playoffs.

"You're a rookie, you want to finish the year strong if you haven't had a good year. You're a second [year] guy, and you haven't had a good year, you want to finish the year strong," Couture said. "If you're a guy that's taken on a bigger leadership [role] and you haven't had the greatest year that you think you should have, you want to show it in the last nine games. If you're a guy who's [had a] 10, 12 or 14-year career, you want to finish the year strong." The Sharks will try to snap their two-game losing streak against Detroit on Thursday.

Logan Couture received a $5,000 fine for slew-footing the Red Wings' Brendan Smith.

Couture's fine represents the maximum allowed under the CBA. He is in the first season of a five-year, $30 million contract.

Logan Couture will center Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels versus the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.

Coach McLellan cited that his team's winning just two of their last nine games as a primary motivation to shake up the lines. "We'll see if that gives us an opportunity to be productive. If not, we can always go back." Couture is tied with Joe Thornton for second on the team in points with 51, two back of Pavelski's leading 53. Wingels ranks sixth with 25 points in 52 games this season.

Feb 15 - 10:45 PM

Logan Couture recorded two assists in Thursday's 5-1 win over Vancouver.

Couture's 27th assist of the season was actually a deflected shot gone wide that Matt Irwin picked up and zipped past Ryan Miller to open the scoring.

Couture sits just two points shy of Joe Pavelski for the team lead through 53 games thus far.
