Jimmy D. With Advice To The Sharks

from Dave Pollak of the Mercury News,

I reached Devellano on Thursday and he pretty much re-created the Las Vegas conversation he said he had in late June with Wilson and Sharks CEO Greg Jamison.

“We were at the NHL awards and had a drink together,” Devellano said. “I initiated it.”

Devellano said he advised Wilson and Jamison to resist the temptation to break up the team.

“Just tweak it,” Devellano said he told the Sharks brass. “You’re a team that‘s been pretty successful over the years. Maybe there’s a player that can’t get it done, but the one thing you can’t afford to do is just break it up completely. My advice is just to hang tough. See if you can’t add a player here or there. You might have to eliminate a guy. But don’t break it up.”
