After another successful regular season the San Jose Sharks were unable to get over the playoff hump once again and found themselves as spectators during the Stanley Cup final.
With that disappointment fresh in his mind GM Doug Wilson decided it was time to make a change. So, at the draft, Wilson moved recently signed Devin Setoguchi, highly touted prospect Charlie Coyle and San Jose's first round pick to Minnesota for 6-foot-5, 219-pound defenseman Brent Burns and a second-rounder.
THN’s Ken Campbell caught up with Wilson on Day 2 of the draft in Minnesota to discuss his motivation for the trade and the Sharks’ off-season plans.
