SAN JOSE -- A 7-year-old Sharks fan whose tear-filled reaction to the trading of Ryane Clowe became a YouTube favorite got a chance to meet with players and coaches Thursday.
Vincent Savage of San Ramon was captured on video crying over the April 2 trade of Clowe to the New York Rangers as his mother, Lauren, tried to console him.
"I'm sad about everything the Sharks have done," Vincent says on the video that was picked up by a variety of web sites. "I'm so mad at them."
The team invited Vincent and his mother to the Sharks pre-game skate and they were ushered into the locker room afterward, where he got to talk with his players.
Vincent turned out to be a critic when he met Dan Boyle.
"I can't believe you haven't won any Stanley Cups," the boy told Boyle, who politely corrected him. Boyle did win the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004.
"But you haven't won one with the Sharks," Vincent responded.
In addition to the invitation from the Sharks, Vincent got a phone call and a signed jersey from Clowe. ___
