The San Jose Sharks announced today that Doug Wilson will remain the general manager.
Here’s the full statement from the club:
“The on-ice results of our team this season are not acceptable to our fans, our organization or our ownership group. We will not lower our expectation that every San Jose Sharks team we put on the ice is capable of winning the Stanley Cup. Despite the fact that our team has experienced a tremendous amount of success over the past eight seasons, we are not satisfied with those results and neither is Doug. The ownership group has confidence that Doug will make the necessary changes to ensure our club remains among the NHL’s elite franchises.”
Time will tell which “necessary changes” are made. Will Todd McLellan be back behind the bench? Wilson held off on giving the coaching staff a vote of confidence. Could Patrick Marleau be traded? At least one columnist thinks he should be.
Wilson hasn’t been afraid to make bold moves in the past, and it’s clear ownership expects him to do more than tinker around this offseason.
