Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Rory Boylen at The Hockey News,
Todd McLellan may not be a household name, but he has been successful at every level he has coached and was in charge of a Detroit power play that has terrorized shorthanded opponents for the past three seasons.
Known as an offense-minded boss, McLellan should bring out the best in a San Jose team rife with snipers and playmakers aching to break out and establish themselves as stars of the second season.
Update 1:47pm ET: More editorializing on this hire from both Mark Purdy and David Pollak of the Mercury News. (*And a hat-tip for the Purdy link to Terry Frei at his Denver Post blog, who apparently had a thing for McLellan in Colorado back when Granato was hired).
Update 2:36pm ET: The Sharks make it official. More at TSN.
