Drew\'s Thought of the Day - 3\/28\/2013

It is amazing what a trade can do. Even though General Manager Doug Wilson insisted that the trade of Douglas Murray was not meant to send a message to the rest of the team.

However, every trade sends a message intended or unintended.

Joe Pavelski said it best in an interview during the game in Anaheim.

"That's on us." He emphatically stated in regard to a good friend and teammate leaving the team.

He further explained that if the team and individuals had performed better then no one would have been traded.

Since the trade, the Sharks have played two games that are two of the best they have played this season. Two games where the team didn't lean on one line or a goaltender to steal the game. Two games where you can point out every player making a positive impact and competing every shift for 60 minutes.

Message or no message, the GM has certainly got the attention of his team.
