McLellan: McGinn is a helluva player
McLellan likes the Sharks' ability to play multiple different lineups, and is not surprised Jamie McGinn is having success in Colorado.
Right now cars. As far as I know -- two between stuff after the morning skate. -- better idea -- but I believe what you did pretty important to him the lead you know. You want to media there are closer options are. Are valuable. The ability to fresh guys as valuable as well I just tell him we wouldn't. But. We do have some some healthy options open if we want to -- would. Still determined based on what you just said. There was a little shift last game with the Desi line getting a little more ice time -- on his line and kind of emerging a little bit within that game. Would that be the plan going forward tonight -- is at all situationally and I think it's all situationally you how. As -- -- memory the last game and you have to work that group for doing what they did well. But it's on a nightly basis to school established themselves again and expect geez it's like to be much we're. Last game and it's just about healthy competition there is no three there is forced to lines that are. He gets my time it was played walls didn't play. Seems to be good chemistry along those lines right now that's a good schools recently responded I think -- illegals come back his attitude he's got an offensive threat he's played physical. Because he seems to be confident right now and when he -- start if it means you were there. He's vulnerable when he feels comfortable there rewarded with a couple goals like to keep it going as well. And or if this happens in the league. Over over the years hundreds and hundreds of times there's been superstars have been. Adult from one team to another Wayne Gretzky for. You know for about -- was traded from one team to the other so. A guy like where they just play are different in different organizations. He's done it before I don't think it's going to be shocked is just one bit. I don't see Kelly are not playing it it will affect him at all. -- in terms of just a matchup on the ice is indicative -- more. Interest in to have each team with the guys that played on the other team maybe even terms of the pre scout -- well. Potentially. You know there's been a lot of talk about that. Whether Jamie McGinn would be sharing his secrets with. With their coaching stuff and two players sharing them with us up there are any secrets -- this time of the year if we we haven't figured out how to play ourselves old game. And we don't know enough about our opposition and shame on us -- -- well played game. We have tough it's hard to ensure that coaching stuff you know. But it's about lacing them up from Plano almost as coaches we have to get out of the way. And and let them play the game and that's what we'll come out and he -- You do appreciate you always hear. Why do you think he's had such an immediate impact right now. Well he's he's all of a player he's. So having a career type years scoring goals. And he's given an opportunity to play a few more minutes there with a young team gets a little more on the power play unit. Perhaps first line power -- -- first second. He went very established itself is a call from -- so and that's Jamie again we you know we all like two weeks here. We are toast -- it was over there. You make adjustments -- your game anticipating him telling them about. There not. There are are you. Most of the talk some girl power play tally. We're not reinventing powerful were. We're where we're out of our power play for a reason to believe that it works in regards what other teams do. Some nights we good excellent but for the -- -- the numbers speak for themselves so. We'll definitely adjust their power play is very dangerous. Just on the road and ought to be prepared for a -- Stand for this year as compared to other years religion. Where does that change. All of this year the the playoffs -- right for a month early -- the stress and he. The intensity level -- It's a little tighter it's obviously uses the cost. Maybe that's a good thing for our team as well. As far as preparation goes it's the same preparation it -- over for the opposition. We've managed. Help. And fatigue the same way. Now that we have in the past and it's our job to to get right -- information. It's at this time you're you're getting under way yours your let them do their thing. You -- -- hatred of the people on the next. We should read it in the game. There's. Speed. Lot of speed balanced scoring -- a lot of scoring from different. Different people. Very good power play. Or -- -- has played extremely well the last 1015 games and -- very confident that. So I think the game's gonna have some -- to -- and be prepared by. Last night was it Phoenix it was became much one -- must watch TV threw for Sharks fans and for some of us. Are you -- getting in that mode now two more games than maybe normally only -- passing glance too because in all the teams out here in the next with -- good thing or ten. Well we're we're paying more attention to. The teams that we have to play down the stretch and it's it's what we do and we preached. And it just so happens that those teams are are in the playoff race with us last night of course we watched Venus play and would we watch them if we wouldn't play them again probably but if it kills two birds -- one's fault but it's a sensible.
