Joe Thornton will be missed, but the San Jose Sharks are ready for their next wave of leadership, starting with captain Logan Couture.

“We’re blessed to have guys like that that have left their mark on this team, but it’s time for the new group to step up and that’s not just Logan,” Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Wednesday. “We have a great group of young guys. Yes, there’s [Brent] Burns and [Erik] Karlsson, but it’s the Tommy Hertls and Timo Meiers, the next wave of guys underneath.

“That’s one of the most important things I can do as a head coach this year. Obviously, you’re going to miss Jumbo, but it’s a way to pass the torch on to other guys.”

The Sharks’ new leadership group faces a unique challenge after missing the playoffs last season (29-36-5, .450 points percentage) for the first time since 2015. The Sharks open training camp on Dec. 31 in Scottsdale, Arizona, because current health restrictions related to COVID-19 in Santa Clara County, California, include a ban on contact sports.

“If you had asked me last season what this team probably could have used from a chemistry standpoint, from a culture standpoint, I would have said, a training camp where we all get away together and have no distractions,” Boughner said. “And probably a good long road trip to start the season. Maybe this is a little more than I wished for. I think it’s going to be a good thing for us. I think we really need to spend some time together.”

Couture was named the 10th captain in Sharks history on Sept. 12, 2019, replacing Joe Pavelski, who signed a three-year contract with the Dallas Stars on July 1 of that year.

Thornton signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 15. The 41-year-old scored 31 points (seven goals, 24 assists) in 70 games with the Sharks last season, his 15th with them.

Thornton was Sharks captain from 2010-14 until he was stripped of the title in August 2014. He was one of four alternate captains in 2014-15, when the Sharks did not name a captain, and kept that title until 2020.

The Sharks have not named an alternate captain to replace Thornton.

“We’ve talked about that as a staff already and we wanted to see how first week or two play out in training camp,” Boughner said. “We have some options we can go with, we don’t have to name one, we can name one, so I think we’re just sort of leaving that as something we’ll tackle here in the next week or two.”

Selected by the Boston Bruins with the No. 1 pick of the 1997 NHL Draft, Thornton has scored 1,509 points (420 goals, 1,089 assists) in 1,636 games during 22 seasons with the Sharks and Bruins. He has scored 133 points (31 goals, 102 assists) in 179 NHL playoff games.

Acquired in a trade from the Bruins on Nov. 30, 2005, Thornton is the Sharks leader in assists (804), second in games (1,104) and points (1,055), and fourth in goals (251).

“He’s definitely left his mark here and Logan and Tommy and guys who grew up under him understand what it is to be a leader, a guy who comes to work every day, who pushes his teammates to be better,” Boughner said of Thornton.

“Everyone has his own style. Couture may not have as many words as Jumbo, but when he gets on the ice he leads by example and he says what needs to be said in the room. There has to be a support system underneath Logan and that’s going to come from the coaching staff and also the players around him, and they have a lot of respect for him. I think what’s going to happen is that, last year wasn’t a perfect year for us and it’s my job and my staff’s job to make sure Logan has the full support, he has the environment to be a good leader, and the rest of his leadership group.”

Couture missed 17 games from Jan. 9-Feb. 23 due to a fractured ankle. He was also injured when a deflected puck hit him in the face against the Colorado Avalanche on March 8, San Jose’s final game before the season was paused due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. Hertl missed the final 18 games of the season after having surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee sustained against the Vancouver Canucks on Jan. 29.

With all the hype around defensive prospect Ryan Merkley, it becomes easy to forget that the Sharks took a gamble in 2017 when they selected Mario Ferarro 49th overall, two rounds earlier than he was projected to be taken. It looks like the gamble may have paid off though. Ferraro was the only Sharks rookie to maintain his roster spot for the majority of the season last year. His 11 points (2G/9A) in 61 games may not seem like much of a coming-out party, but Ferarro is ranked fourth in points from 2019-20 amongst returning Sharks defenceman. It’s safe to say, Mario Ferarro is the sole Sharks prospect who has earned his spot in the NHL.

The Sharks used their injury-laden 2019-20 season as a bit of a tryout opportunity for many of their prospects. Although none of them had enough success to be considered a lock for a roster spot this year, many of them showed their potential. Do not be surprised to see any of the following players in a Sharks uniform on opening day.

Ryan Merkley, D

San Jose’s consensus top prospect will make his case for a roster spot this season when training camp opens on December 31. The attitude problems that haunted the young blueliner seem to be a thing of the past, and it is translating well on the ice. Merkley has improved statistically every season in the OHL and scouts are now beginning to applaud his defensive play as well. With a couple of All-Star defenceman in Burns and Karlsson, as well as the promising emergence of rookie Mario Ferarro there is no need to rush Merkley to the NHL. However, many are hoping the young prospect can help put San Jose back on the map as a perennial cup contender.

Noah Gregor, RW

Despite earning multiple call-ups and playing 28 games in 2019-20, Noah Gregor can not be considered a lock for this year’s Sharks team. But, if someone asked you to bet on it…say yes! The Alberta native did not make a huge impact on the score sheet in his time with the big club (3/2/5), but he certainly brought some energy to a floundering squad. Gregor plays a physical game and although he saw a significant reduction in his offensive numbers, he was one of the most noticeable players when he stepped out onto the ice. His high octane gameplay was rewarded with a promotion to the top line alongside Logan Couture and Evander Kane, and he even found himself manning the point on the Sharks powerplay from time to time. Gregor is physical, talented, and adaptable. All excellent qualities when you look to break into the NHL.

Marcus Sorensen, LW

At 27-years-old it can be difficult to consider Sorensen a prospect in a league that has become a bit of a young man’s game. With only one year remaining on his contract with the Sharks, this might be the final opportunity the Swedish winger will get to make a lasting impression on the big club. No need to tell Sorensen that though. The veteran prospect has been playing with a renewed sense of purpose in Sweden’s Allsvenskan league before being recalled to San Jose for training camp. At the time of his recall, Sorensen led the league in scoring with 24 points (11G/13A) in just 14 games.

Brent Burns needs more from the San Jose Sharks if he is to truly cement his legacy.
There is no doubt that, when all is said and done, Brent Burns will go down as one of the best offensive defensemen in the modern era of the National Hockey League.

Agree or not, the stats tell the story and back that fact up with Burns currently leading all active NHL defensemen with 694 career points, with Chicago Blackhawks blueliner Duncan Keith second with 610 points and Burns’ Sharks teammate Erik Karlsson third with 603.

Burns’ 694 points (210 G, 484 A) in 1,113 career regular season games has him looking up at the top 10 all-time NHL defensemen when it comes to career points, with Hall of Famer Chris Chelios sitting in 10th spot with 948 career points.

That list features the pantheon of all-time great NHL defensemen, with the legendary Ray Bourque, without doubt one of the best to ever do it, sitting pretty atop the list with 1,579 career points.

Now, it is almost impossible at this point that Burns will probably ever threaten Bourque’s record, and Burns is also unlikely to surpass the legendary former New York Rangers blueliner Brian Leetch, who is No. 8 with 1,028 career points.

However, and I drew inspiration for this story after reading this breakdown piece by The Hockey News on the all-time and active leaders in points by defensemen, Burns can still cement his legacy as one of the best offensive blueliners in his own right.

He can also really add to his case as a true San Jose Sharks icon with a strong finish to his career, but the bearded legend needs more from his team in order to achieve both.

Although you can make a case that Burns is half-man, half-bear given his appearance and his lifestyle, he is 35-years-old and, unless you are Tom Brady, father time defeats all eventually and the veteran may be running out of time to put a pretty bow on his career.

Brent Burns, D ( rank: 64) — After scoring an NHL career-high 83 points (16 goals, 67 assists) in 82 games in 2018-19 to lead all defensemen, his production dipped last season (45 points in 70 games) with the San Jose Sharks missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Burns is an obvious bounce-back candidate considering his heavy shot volume (3.2 shots on goal per game last season; 3.7 per game since 2014-15) and elite pedigree at his position (three seasons with at least 75 points, most among active defensemen).

[Sharks 31 IN 31: Season preview | 3 Questions | Top prospects | Behind the Numbers]

Erik Karlsson, D (81) — Burns is the leading scorer among NHL defensemen since 2014-15 (406 points in 480 games), but Karlsson leads the position in points per game (0.87; Burns: 0.85) over that span (minimum 75 games). Karlsson, a perennial fantasy standout with the Ottawa Senators earlier in his career, has dealt with injuries in each of his two seasons with the Sharks. If Karlsson benefits from the extended rest (San Jose hasn’t played a game since Mar. 11) and remains with Burns on the first power-play unit, each defenseman can easily finish with at least 60 points and among the top five fantasy players at the position.

Evander Kane, LW (95) — The left wing led the Sharks in goals last season (26 in 64 games) and is one of the best fantasy players at his position for multicategory coverage. Kane always has a high shot volume; his 216 SOG last season were second on the Sharks behind Burns (225) and he has 3.6 SOG per game in his NHL career. Kane had his best power-play point totals in each of the past two seasons (18 PPP last season; 11 in 2018-19) and adds hits (2.3 per game in career) and penalty minutes (122 last season).

Tomas Hertl, C/LW (111) and Logan Couture, C (118) — The Sharks top two centers are safe fantasy picks in middle rounds of any fantasy draft. Each dealt with injury last season but had an NHL career high in points in 2018-19 (Hertl: 74 in 77 games; Couture: 70 in 81 games). If Burns and Karlsson rebound, Hertl and Couture should see collective success with them on the first power-play unit. It’s also worth noting Hertl had by far his best goal total in 2018-19 (35; previous best was 22); Couture has three seasons of at least 31 goals (including an NHL career-high 34 in 2017-18).

Another major obstacle is the fact that the Sharks appear to have fallen off a cliff over the past couple of seasons, going from making the Western Conference Final in 2018-19 to missing the expanded postseason this past year.

They completely regressed as a team and now have to forge a new identity after losing two iconic faces of the franchise in consecutive years in Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton, with the latter signing for the Toronto Maple Leafs this past offseason.

There are also still major question marks in goal with Martin Jones a shadow of his former self, while the trade for Minnesota Wild netminder Devan Dubnyk hardly quashes or quells any of those fears.

As a result, the Sharks are somewhat an unknown quantity heading into the 2020-21 season and I haven’t seen much improvement to an offense that was ranked 27th in the entire NHL during the 2019-20 regular season, averaging 2.57 Goals For Per Game.

And, with Erik Karlsson playing on one leg and having yet to fully reach peak Erik Karlsson with the Sharks, there’s no guarantees that San Jose will be a Playoff team next year.

If that’s the case then that could harm Burns’ legacy with the Sharks who failed to win a Stanley Cup with this core, although they came close in 2016, while the defenseman could be hindered when it comes to his personal quest to pad out his stats and emerge as the best blueliner of the modern era from a statistical point of view.

<a rel=

Likely to stave off Duncan Keith, Ryan Suter and Shea Weber due to age, the likes of Erik Karlsson, Kris Letang and John Carlson could overtake Burns in career points with another few strong productive years.

That could diminish Burns’ remarkable career and achievements, somewhat, while if he isn’t surrounded by a competitive team then he isn’t likely to get close to Chris Chelios‘ total of 948 career points, which would certainly make us look at Brian Burns in a different light when it comes to his legacy.

Now, granted, I don’t think Burns will catch Chelios at this point although, given how he plays the game and how he takes care of his body, he could certainly come close with a final few big years production wise.

After all, he still plays a key role on the power play despite the presence of Karlsson who thrives on the man advantage, while Burns has one of the best releases from the point in the NHL right now.

However, if he’s forced to tone down his offensive game in order to focus on keeping the puck out of the net in his own end due to the inabilities of his teammates, then that won’t help in the quest to establish his legacy as one of the best to do it.

Just look at the 2019-20 season when, after recording 67 points (12 G, 55 A) in 2017-18 and a career-high 83 points (16 G, 67 A) in 2018-19, Burns’ offensive game fell off a cliff this past year with just 45 points (12 G, 33 A) in 70 games.

NEXT: Are the Dallas Stars being underrated?
In other words, Brent Burns clearly struggles when he is on a bad team given that he has to do more defensively, and if the San Jose Sharks can’t right the ship soon then that might harm the overall legacy of their current all-time points leader as a defenseman, who still has a chance to pad out his stats, make some history and rubber-stamp his place in the annals of NHL history.
