Doug Wilson doesn’t sound like a GM who’s going anywhere.
The 2020-21 San Jose Sharks are going to miss the playoffs, and for just the third time in franchise history, they’re going to miss the post-season in consecutive years. But Wilson has a plan to put the Sharks are back in the playoffs next season, and it sounds like owner Hasso Plattner is on board.
Wilson held his end-of-the-season media availability this morning and touched on a wide spectrum of topics: What is he looking to add to the San Jose Sharks this summer? How much does he talk to Plattner? Is he considering buying any players out? Does he still believe that Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic can be high-impact defensemen?
