Elliotte Friedman of CBC Sports reported this week:
"Doug Wilson apparently told Todd McLellan three days after the season ended that the Sharks' bench boss was staying. Odd that there's been no announcement, but it sounds like there is a debate about assistant coaches."
The debate about assistant coaches makes perfect sense.
The Sharks lackluster abilities on special teams, primarily the penalty kill, are traditionally units that a teams assistant coaches are charged with handling.
McLellan's resume speaks for itself, but there is an obvious need for a shakeup in the Sharks dressing room.
And management is always one of the safest places to start.
