James Sheppard is still upbeat about the San Jose Sharks' chances of winning the Stanley Cup in the near future.

The Sharks management seems to be pushing for a more long-term strategy, but Sheppard expects the team to bounce back after blowing a 3-0 series lead to Los Angeles in the playoffs. "It was important to me stay in San Jose because we have all the ingredients for a championship team," Sheppard said. "Players, coaching, organization and of course the fans. After learning an important lesson last year, I think we are in a position to accomplish what we want, and that is to win." He inked a one-year, $1.3 million extension with the Sharks this summer.

Tom Wilson isn't projected to fully recover from his ankle injury until after the start of the Capitals' training camp.

Wilson's agent said that his client is still expected to be fine before the end of the preseason though. He suffered the injury during the offseason in a "fall," but other than that the Capitals are being vague on what caused it.

Dany Heatley has agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

The chances of Heatley bouncing back to the point where he's a serviceable top-six forward aren't great, but we can't fault the Ducks for taking a chance on him at that price. Heatley had 12 goals and 28 points in 76 contests in 2013-14.
