Sharks GM Will Lose His Job If They Experience Playoff Failure

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

Now that Dany Heatley has been traded to San Jose, if the Sharks don’t reverse their long history of playoff failure, it will cost general manager Doug Wilson his job….

“We’re completely comfortable with the type of player Dany is, and more importantly, with the type of person he is,” Wilson told reporters. “There are often cases where players have asked for trades. ... Sometimes, it is best for everybody involved. We have zero concerns about that.”

What Wilson should be concerned about, however, is his job. The Sharks have greatly underachieved in recent years, even with the presence of Joe Thornton. They’ve been expected to challenge or outright win the Cup, but have faltered in the playoffs.
