Sharks GM backs retaining McLellan

Penguins/NHL Videos

The pain of another playoff collapse was still fresh less than two days later as the San Jose Sharks packed up for another early summer.

General manager Doug Wilson expressed his still-boiling anger in a team meeting Friday and vowed that the status quo is not an option after the Sharks became the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.

But Wilson said it will be his recommendation that the change not include coach Todd McLellan. Wilson said he has not yet talked to owner Hasso Plattner.

Wilson said the decision on what the Sharks will do going forward likely will be made in the next two weeks.
