SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks are standing pat at the trade deadline and will not add any reinforcements for the stretch run.
General manager Doug Wilson did not make any deals before Wednesday's deadline in a sign that he believes the roster he has now is capable of a playoff run. It is the first time since Wilson became general manager in May 2003 that he did not make a trade in the month leading up to the deadline.
The lack of movement before the trade deadline was in stark contrast to last season when Wilson was busy in his effort to "reset and refresh" the team.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
