San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan reiterated that the team sees Brent Burns as a defenseman, not a forward.
Both Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau said they’d like to see Burns return to being a forward, but their head coach doesn’t seem to agree. "Brent was acquired to provide us with a long-term, quarterback offensive defenseman," said McLellan. "He’s an NHL all-star defenseman and he’s earned the right to be there in those types of situations." The Sharks lost Dan Boyle and Brad Stuart this off-season and leaving Burns on the blue line is probably the right decision. The 29-year-old registered 22 goals and 48 points in 69 games primarily as a forward last season. Sep 19 - 9:24 PM
