List of the greatest San Jose Sharks of all time. The players on this list have been ranked by the community in order of awesomeness during their stints playing for the San Jose Sharks. In the National Hockey League, the San Jose Sharks play at the SAP Center at San Jose in California. The stadium is known to locals as the Shark Tank, and these are the best sharks to ever have swam in the tank.

As members of the Pacific Division of the NHL's Western Conference, coach Todd McLellan got stars like Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl in the 2013-14 season, but there are so many other great players in the history of the San Jose Sharks. Men like Jeff Friesen and Marco Sturm have all played their hearts out and are joined by other great Sharks on this list of the best.
