The San Jose Sharks Don’t Plan On Being Active In Free Agency

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

“We will look. We’ll explore everything. But, when you’re turning the team over to a younger core, you’ve got to be careful who you bring in from the outside that ends up superseding them. We’re giving them the opportunity. Here’s your team," Wilson said.

“It doesn’t mean we won’t add people, whether it be trades or potential free agency going forward, but if you asked me right now, I would say probably not.”...

The general manager’s ornery tone has been palpable since the team blew a 3-0 series lead against the Kings more than three weeks ago, and was still evident on the Comcast SportsNet set.

“What we want to do is turn this over to people that are going to come and play. We don’t care what your age is, there is – I’m saying this with all due respect – there’s no equity in anybody that’s been here. With our performance of what we just went through, this is where we’re at.

“You want to come in take the net as a goalie? Take the net. You want to be a young defenseman and grab it? Take it. … This is a great opportunity for people to come in and play the way that the coaches need them to play.”

Sounds like someone’s been hearing Babcock’s sound bites.
