Sharks GM Doug Wilson wants the team to have a Drew Doughty/P.K. Subban type player, which contributed to the decision to switch Brent Burns back to defense this season.
Burns has flirted with the 50-point mark before as a defenseman and he could still be used as a forward for some shifts during the 2014-15 season. He'll be a versatile player for San Jose and for fantasy owners because he still has dual eligibility. Aug 29 - 10:59 AM
