SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson is wasting no time making changes after perhaps his team's most crushing playoff collapse.
Wilson said Thursday that he told pending unrestricted free agent defenseman Dan Boyle that he will not be re-signed, informed unproductive forward Marty Havlat that he will not be back next season and moved top-line wing Brent Burns back to defense after spending more than a year as a forward on captain Joe Thornton's line.
These changes all come two weeks after the Sharks became the fourth team in NHL history to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.
