All Todd McLellan

from Jim Carlton of the Wall Street Journal,

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Mr. McLellan looked at what he has accomplished and where he hopes to lead the Sharks, who have yet to win a Stanley Cup or even conference championship in their 17-year history in San Jose. Excerpts:

The Wall Street Journal: How much credit do you take in this winning record?

Mr. McLellan: I am a small piece. There are a number of other important people on the staff, and the most important people are the players. They are the ones who lay themselves on the line every night.

WSJ: How much different are you from your predecessor, Ron Wilson?

Mr. McLellan: When I got the job, I had a real good idea how I wanted the team to play. There were some changes in the way some of the players were utilized in the past. For example, we wanted the defensemen to be much more active, shooting the puck more.
