On Friday, SJSHARKS.com sat down with Sharks Head Coach Todd McLellan to discuss his thoughts on the team as they hit the 20-game mark of the season.
It was stated in training camp that Joe Thornton was going to have to adjust with the new system and it seems that he has his line rounding into form and that he’s made the adjustment in style.
He’s done everything he’s been asked to do and I feel confident in what he’s doing. He’s backchecking, adjusted on the power play and trying to shoot the puck more. He’s also been a team leader.
Patrick Marleau has reemerged from a tough regular season last year. How proud of Patrick are you for turning it around?
I only know Patty from how I know him now. Stats wise he’s proven he is back. He is a great player and a better person. He’s being rewarded for his play and he’s smiling and enjoying the game.
