SAN JOSE (Bleacher Report) — San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson did not disappoint as the 2013 trade deadline came to a close this week.

Wilson, as usual, was extremely active, shedding the dead weight of Douglas Murray and Ryane Clowe and promoting a team playing fast-paced hockey with a new confidence on the ice.

The jury is still out on the moves, though. The acquisition of Raffi Torres has many scratching their heads, but he will bring a toughness and tenacity to a team that saw Murray and Clowe depart without a physical presence in return.

Wilson did exactly what he said he would do — “refresh” not “rebuild.”

The Sharks now have a slew of picks in a 2013 draft that many are calling a very talented year for prospects. San Jose will have four picks in the first two rounds of the 2013 NHL draft.
