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.

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.
