The Sharks have reached the postseason every year since 2003, but at 11-10-4, they are currently outside the playoff picture.
Though the Sharks have a made a number of small moves like trading Jason Demers to Dallas, owner Hasso Plattner, in an email exchange with the San Jose Mercury News, is preaching patience.
"Patience is exactly what is needed. It is far too early to throw in the towel."
"After 10 years on the sunny side, we now have to fight to reach the top eight in our conference. Our fans will be with us as long as the team gives its all."

The Sharks, who snapped a four-game skid Saturday against the Ducks, host the Flyers on Tuesday.
Plattner, 70, resides in Germany and has served as the Sharks representative on the NHL's Board of Governors since 2013.
