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

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
