Todd McLellan

Last Wednesday, I briefly met the new San Jose Sharks head coach, Todd McLellan. There's only so much one can gather from a two minute introduction, but I have this much to report: he's (surprise!) Canadian. And how - his Saskatchewan accent is THICK (and I don't just mean "eh" or "aboot"). He seems to be a very down-to-earth type, though judging from this photo, he might also be a tad stoic (pssst! smile more, coach!). I pointed out to him that I was especially counting on him to beat Toronto this year. "Not a Maple Leafs fan, are ya?" Well, no, but I have slightly more compelling reasons why I want our new coach to win that game. He didn't seem to follow, though... he'll come around soon enough.
