Sharks GM Doug Wilson vows to rebuild after playoff : 'We're a tomorrow team'

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have signed goalie Alex Stalock and forward Mike Brown to two-year contracts.

General manager Doug Wilson announced the moves on Tuesday as he begins looking ahead to rebuilding the team this off-season. Stalock and Brown were eligible for unrestricted free agency.

Stalock went 12-5-2 with a 1.87 goals against average in 24 games last season.

Brown had two goals and three assists in 48 games.

Wilson is looking ahead to an off-season rebuild after the Sharks blew a 3-0 series in a first-round playoff loss to Los Angeles. Wilson says he expects the team to take a step or two backward this season before they can achieve their ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.

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.
