Sharks stand pat at trade deadline in belief that current roster equipped for playoff run

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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
