"We always think it's important to try and compete to win every year," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. "We've got some veteran guys that have worked their tails off this year and deserve that."
"In 1981 and 1982, Gary Hart registered 1 percent or lower in the polls and nobody gave him a chance. But the people who were supporting him weren't supporting him because he was the horse to ride or the one to bet on," said Mr. Wilson. "He was the one who inspired people and his team came together because people wanted to make a difference in the country."
