Todd McLellan Could Know His Fate Tomorrow

from David Pollak of Working The Corners,

Nobody should be surprised if coach Todd McLellan’s tenure behind the Sharks bench ends Wednesday.

But don’t necessarily expect a conventional firing. Signs indicate that a mutually agreed upon parting of the ways is more likely with both general manager Doug Wilson and McLellan acknowledging it is in everyone’s best interest for him to depart with one year left on his contract.

No muss, no fuss, no blood on anybody’s hands.

Wednesday is locker clean-out time, when players, coach and general manager address the season past and the one ahead. Normally, it comes two days after the final game — not four. A team spokesman said the extra time was needed to accommodate staff doctors, but it might also have been used to frame what happens next.
