San Jose coach Todd McLellan doesn't expect it to take long for Brent Burns to re-adjust to playing defense.
"It will take him a little bit just to get comfortable there again," McLellan said. "But, when I say a little bit, we're not talking about Christmas. By the time we're done exhibition season, he'll be an All-Star defenseman again." Burns was paired with stay-at-home veteran Scott Hannan during Saturday's scrimmage. He'll likely serve as the Sharks' power-play quarterback and if he is moved back to forward at some point then his fantasy value will get a boost. Sep 20 - 6:47 PM
