5. Doug Wilson, San Jose Sharks Marco Sturm(notes), Wayne Primeau(notes) and Brad Stuart(notes) for Joe Thornton(notes). Next! Oh, you wanted more? Consider that the San Jose Sharks have made the playoffs in each of Wilson's five seasons at the helm, winning three division titles and making the conference finals once. He's made some bold decisions beyond the Thornton trade, like dealing for Brian Campbell(notes). He's drafted extraordinarily well for the GM of a successful team, like finding Joe Pavelski(notes) in the seventh round. Obviously, the knock on Wilson is that the Sharks haven't won but jack and squat in the postseason; to that, we'd ask if that's Wilson's fault? Have the pieces Wilson put in place failed him, or is he putting the wrong pieces in place? We'd err on the side of the former rather than the latter, and celebrate a strong decade of work.
